Acoustic Noise Control

Reverberation times play a huge part in any building project, addressing them at the very beginning – in the design stagemeans that you can get it right without compromising on design, aesthetics, or budget.  

AG’s Alphacrete® Acoustic Masonry Block- which comes in two different finishes with extensive range of colours and detailing shapes available is the result of extensive research and development into the acoustic performance of blocks. It has been specially developed to help control reverberation time and deliver outstanding acoustic performance.

Our in house team of experts work along side construction professionals and specifiers every day. The noise control solutions that we provide means that there is no need for separate sound absorbing wall panels which are required with standard block or brick constructions to achieve 'E' performance.

Recent independent tests have confirmed that our Acoustic Masonry Block meets the standards as set down in the newly published design base standards for the Department of Education’s Priority School Building Programme (PSBP).
