Ontario power centre loads up on sound protection for docks

October 19, 2016

The Winston Churchill Power Centre in Mississauga recently installed two large AIL Sound Walls to mitigate noise from two loading docks adjacent to a townhome development. 

Double-sided protection
One of the walls, for a RONA Building Centre, required sound absorption on both sides of the wall – on the dock side to control truck engine and loading noise, and on the outer alley side to absorb traffic noise along the back of the building.

A double-sided Silent-Protector (Absorptive) solution
For the RONA application, we used our larger, double-channel steel posts, flange-mounted in a continuous concrete footing with the Silent-Protector panels placed back to back in each channel. The other application for a grocery store (below right) did not require the sound absorption on the outer side.
