Retaining walls placed as noise barrier at waste processing company
Waste processing company M.W. Containerdienst und Schrotthandel GmbH in Fockbek placed Bosch Beton L retaining walls to reduce noise nuisance for local residents. In this case, as well as providing terrain fencing, the walls also serve as a noise barrier.
M.W. Containerdienst und Schrotthandel GmbH has been a sustainable, fair and reliable recycling industry partner since 1998. The Waschelewski couple runs the company in Fockbek, which is mainly active in waste collection and processing. The scrap trade started in 2003 and the container service in 2008.
As conditions at the former location were limited, they decided to build a new location with a focus only on waste removal, collection and processing. The entrepreneurs wanted to ensure that local residents experienced the least possible noise nuisance, which is why they opted for retaining walls that, in view of the statutory emission requirements, also serve as a noise barrier.
Bosch Beton placed L retaining walls at the new location over a total length of 130 metres. 75 metres of these are 4 metres high and the rest, some 55 metres, is 6 metres high. In the western section of the site, 6-metre-high retaining walls were placed to reduce noise nuisance and protect the environment.
L retaining walls
The L retaining wall with heel was developed especially for medium load applications in civil engineering. The heel offers increased stability, enabling higher loads.
Once placed this creates a good, straight retaining wall with dimensional stability. A gabion or fencing can be fitted to the heel.
