ABSTRACT
The article reports on PARAGLAS SOUNDSTOP TL4, a noise barrier system for use on elevated roadways and bridges. The system has just received approval by the Federal Highway Administration. The system's fragment-retentive quality presents a transparent but impact-resistant option for stable and aesthetic noise mitigation for highway projects. The PARAGLAS SOUNDSTOP GS CC noise barrier sheet is lightweight, easy to install and resistant to weathering from ultra violet exposure.
