CLIENT

Rapid Transit Project 2000 Ltd.

SCOPE OF WORK

Design, supply and install approximately 2 kms of acoustical panels for the SkyTrain expansion. 

ACOUSTICAL REQUIREMENTS

The acoustical panels were designed to achieve a 5dBA reduction in noise.

NOISE SOURCES

The linear motor that is used for both acceleration and primary braking, and the wheel/rail contact were the two major sources of noise.

SILENCING SOLUTIONS

INNOVA installed its acoustical panels on the outside edge of the concrete guideway and inside the center handrail that separates the inbound and outbound trains. UNIQUE PROJECT HURDLES

This was a fast-track project that required 60% of the work to be completed between 11:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. with inclement weather conditions adding to the challenge.

RESULTS

The project was completed ahead of schedule.
