2Fold® – noise control meets design

The new design for roadside noise barriers recently included in the Forster product range was developed by raum-werk-stadt, a team of architects. The noise barrier comes in various sizes and designs that break up monotonous stretches along a road.

The design is embodied by the barrier itself. A barrier impacts through its own shape. A graded change in the noise barrier keeps drivers attentive and prevents them from succumbing to monotony and the risk of falling asleep.


The basic structure is made up of steel supports that fold twice at varying heights. The supports, which can be rotated longitudinally or crosswise, offer a multitude of mix-and-match options for the elements inbetween. These are aluminium elements of varying shapes – all sorts of rectangles, triangles and parallelograms.

The colours to be chosen for the elements should highlight the effect of the barrier and reflect its surrounding. Aluminium panels accommodate a wide choice of hues that take up and respond to the colours around them. Kinks in the barrier vary the angle of light, creating interesting shades that enhance the effect of the barrier.
