In a mature, vibrant society, noise is inevitable. It can be noise from trucks, buses, cars, trains, aircraft and other means of transport. There can be noise from nearby industry, shops and entertainment venues, construction sites and other trade and business premises. They can also be noise that stems from people and activities in the community around us.
Environmental noise pollution is where ambient sound exceeds accepted comfort levels.
For some people noise becomes an unwanted intrusion, with an adverse effect on their quality of life, their health and their general wellbeing.
Over time, undesirable noise can have serious health effects – either directly or indirectly. More than 40% of Europeans are exposed to noise that affects their health. And it is time to take action to protect ourselves from noise pollution which will eventually be detrimental to our health.
Environmental responsibility is of vital importance to us. We comply with the award winning environmental responsibility policy laid down by the ROCKWOOL Group. The acoustic stone wool core is 100% recyclable and non-combustible. The quality of the products and a responsible environment policy are key features in the way we operate.

Between Zuidhoek 3 – the last phase of the project plan – and the railway line, a 3 m high sound barrier has been erected, on top of it is a 1.45 m high noise reduction Noistop fence. This guarantees peace and residential enjoyment for the residents.
