Sound Fighter Systems was asked to design a sound-absorptive gate for a good customer in California. SFS pioneered the use of very large, fully sound-absorptive gates for DOT and Industrial noise control usage, and has designed and manufactured countless such gates for customers around the country.
But unlike the more common acoustical swing-gates, this gate needed to be different. It was to regulate heavy industrial traffic to an ongoing construction site, and needed to be sufficiently wide for the large commercial vehicles accessing the site. There was not sufficient space to allow for a swing gate, which mandated the use of a track-style gate instead.
Automated Gate Entry
Additionally, the customer wanted it to be automated so nobody would have to physically operate the heavy gate components. SFS had designed similar automated rolling and track gates in the past, and designed a gate addressing those needs. The end result is a fully-electric track gate, 11 feet tall with a total opening span of 20 feet. The design incorporates the use of our 100% sound-absorptive LSE Noise Barrier Panels, helping to maintain the overall noise mitigation established by the larger LSE Barrier surrounding the site.
