The Tuf‐Barrier™ Noise Wall System –
A green product start to finish
For a maintenance-free barrier to sight and sound, look to HLH. The Tuf-Barrier and Silent Protector Plus deliver sound barrier ratings that perform higher than standard STC and IDOT specifications.
HLH products are envrionmentally friendly and cost effective. The inner substrate of each product is made from 100 percent recycled PVC. The only new material included is the outer “cap stock” layer that, in order to maintain UV and imact performance, must be made of newly manufactured material with consistent properties.
Co-extrusion, a manufacturing process, allows for the maximum amount of recycled content to be used while maintaining strength, durability and color. Efficient packaging translates to fewer trucks needed for deliveries and less gas consumed en route to the warehouse and job site. Vinyl products are a rapidly renewable material that can be recycled into a variety of products – packaging, pipe, siding, parking stops, floor tiles, notebook covers and traffic cones to name a few.
In terms of a typical Tuf-Barrier wall at 10 feet high and 1,000 feet long, the total project weighs roughly 41,200 pounds with a minimum of 35,000 of that weight made up of recycled material.
During all levels of production and delivery, the environment is a priority at HLH.
