Atlanta Motorsports Park (AMP) is a private country club for adrenaline-fuelled driving enthusiasts. AMP had removed some trees to create a retention pond, but those trees had been acting as a natural sound barrier. Neighboring residents and stable horses all said “nay” and a county judge ordered AMP to install a light-gauge metal sound barrier, similar to those used by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT).
Our Tuf-Barrier system judged to be best for Atlanta raceway
AMP knew those metal walls were not very attractive and prone to rusting — not the image this high-end club was looking for. Researching it with their contractor, they discovered a more attractive, more effective and more economical alternative in AIL Sound Walls. They went back to the judge to get permission to use it instead.
After providing a preliminary design and budgetary pricing for the contractor to bid from, the AIL Sound Walls team also assisted the owner in providing aesthetic samples and durability/performance metrics to help the county judge and residents make an informed decision.
Our lightweight PVC Tuf-Barrier (Reflective) system was quickly fabricated, delivered and installed with limited track closures. A post-install site visit brought nothing but positive reviews from AMP officials, neighbors and the horses.
