SlimWall acoustic fences from Modular Walls matched the designer aesthetic of a modern townhouse project in Illawong, NSW developed by GloBuild.

Premium property developer and builder, GloBuild sought a high quality acoustic fencing solution for Waverly Estate, a new, medium-density townhouse development described as “crafted to capture awe inspiring views from every angle” that “encompasses all the best features of suburban life in Illawong: seclusion, privacy and high-quality living”.

The acoustic fencing needed to have an aesthetic that simultaneously blended with the natural elements of the surrounding bush whilst also emulating the premium, modern architecture of the townhouses.

Six SlimWall acoustic fences, measuring 35m in length in variable heights of 1.8m-2.1m, were installed at the development. The challenging installation was completed in less than a week with the final finish to feature tones that complement the bush surrounds.

The steep incline of the blocks was a major challenge during the installation, especially when considering site access for machinery and how the materials would follow the contours of the land. However, the high level of customisation available with Modular Walls’ solutions helped easily overcome this problem.

Modular Walls systems such as SlimWall acoustic fences do not require large machinery for installation; half bays with raked panels were utilised for a steeper, stepped wall system, with core receptors used in rock-dense areas.

Key benefits of Modular Walls’ innovative and cost effective acoustic and boundary walls include proven acoustic performance; cost effective material; durable, lightweight modular construction; quick and easy installation; and suited to environmentally harsh and remote locations.
