3D Engineered Sound Barrier
Noise pollution is one of the biggest health risks in city life. Urban life has an average background noise level of 60 decibels which is the level that raises a persons heart rate and blood pressure, It also causes stress, lack of concentration and loss of sleep. While most of us are able to tune out city noise like traffic and become accustomed to the hum of it in the background, our nervous system is still registering it as a constant disturbance and stress.
