Ballstop with noise reduction fencing protects new sports facility

In June this year, a small football field was opened at the Kuno-Hendrichs sports facility in Burscheid-Hilgen (GER). This exemplary project was realized in close cooperation with the technical authorities of the city of Solingen.

For the most effective safety and activity containment, the small playing field was surrounded with 80 meters of Heras– Ballstop BS Uni at a height of 4 meters. Since this sports facility is located next to a residential area, special attention was paid during the planning phase to the expected “noise emissions”.

The BS Uni ballstop fence system was specially designed to satisfy the requirements of the applicable noise protection norms for sports facilities according to the Federal Pollution Control Act. The combination of the individual components ensures optimum noise reduction and is therefore considerably quieter in the urban environment than conventional welded mesh panels. The TÜV confirmed that the ballstop BS UNI functions below the maximum permissible noise level value (70db) according to DIN 45635-1 and DIN EN ISO 3744.

The final result has proven equally satisfactory for the residents and the field players.
