Noise Reduction Fencing

Starting to notice some signs of damage on your fence? If your fence is more than ten years old, it’s inevitable that it will eventually need repairs.

 If you’re trying to be proactive about your fence’s lifespan, you may even want to get on top of a minor problem early.

Why You Might Need Noise Reduction Fencing

Modern noise reduction fencing is no longer a niche product; Australians all over the country are installing acoustic fencing with Jim’s Fencing.

These types of fences aren’t just for homes backing onto a highway or rail line. There are many reasons you may want to install sound barrier fencing:


  • To decrease the sound of neighbours using power tools, talking or playing music
  • To muffle the sound of wind and weather
  • To increase visual and auditory privacy in your own backyard
  • To reduce overall sound pollution from traffic.


Backyard privacy is a pillar of Australian culture, so why settle for a fenceline that won’t keep your conversations in, and your neighbour’s lawnmower out?

The Jim’s Fencing team has been installing noise-dampening fences for years, and we can confirm they’re more popular than ever. If you’re having trouble enjoying your outdoor areas, you may want to talk to Australia’s number one fencing contractor.

Modular Walls for Noise Reduction

Modular Walls acoustic barriers reduce noise by up to 20+dB, cutting down on half the sound that reaches your ears. With multiple styles on offer, you can select the option that best suits your budget and the style of your property.

Modular walls are a relatively new entrant to the fencing market, but they’ve taken off thanks to their many benefits. Modular fencing is becoming an industry favourite as it offers great noise reduction performance along with a stylish appearance, and fits comfortably within the budget for many Australians.

As a modern and innovative form of acoustic fencing, modular walls are designed to mimic the look of a rendered masonry brick wall but come at a fraction of the cost. Their sound-dampening properties are superior to all other fence styles, and they can even be installed as a retaining wall up against an existing fence.

At Jim’s Fencing, we offer Hebel modular fencing as well as three options from ModularWalls. Each range includes varied thicknesses and sound-insulating properties, allowing you to choose the perfect solution for your yard.

What to Consider When Choosing a Noise-Reducing Fence

Noise-reducing fencing isn’t a one size fits all solution, so you’ll have a couple of factors to consider. Where you live, your budget and the style of your home will affect the type of sound barrier fence that’s best for your needs.

When you’re comparing different types of sound barrier fence, these are the major things that set them apart:

Height is the first thing to consider when choosing a noise-reduction fence. Acoustic barriers generally require around 2 meters in height to adequately muffle local sound pollution. If the line of sight is blocked, it’s a good sign that noise will also be reduced. Keep in mind that depending on where you are, councils have different rules on the allowable fence height, but exceptions can be made depending on how close traffic is to your home. The friendly team at Jim’s Fencing would be happy to help you navigate this process.

The density of your fence makes a world of difference. If you live close to heavy traffic or train noise, you’ll need to consider going with a very dense fencing material, to help suppress more intense noise pollution. You’ll also need to maximise coverage around your home; any gaps in your fence will limit the sound reduction properties. For the most effective noise reduction fence possible, be sure to speak to a professional like us here at Jim’s Fencing. We can assess the noise issues you’re facing and recommend the best option for you.

The placement of your soundproofing fence makes a big difference to its performance. The closer the fence is to the traffic or other source of noise pollution, the more it will block – and you’ll hear the least noise when you’re close to the other side of the fence. When installing your fence, consider how close it is to key locations like balconies and patios, helping you achieve maximum peace and quiet.

Weighing up all of these factors can be difficult for homeowners. Thankfully the team here at Jim’s Fencing are seasoned veterans when it comes to acoustic fences. We can walk you through every step of choosing and installing your soundproofed fence, including the best fence material and placement for your noise pollution issues.
