Improvement of highway safety is a continuing goal of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) leading to requirements for enhanced traffic safety devices, particularly those in the zone of intrusion (the region above and beyond the face of a traffic barrier where an impacting vehicle may extend during an impact).

In 2004 Evonik Cyro successfully Crash-Tested the ACRYLITE® Soundstop TL4 system (Patented), a noise barrier to be used with typical concrete traffic barriers.Tested in accordance with NCHRP 350 requirements, the FHWA approved the ACRYLITE® Soundstop TL4 noise barrier system in 2005 for use on the National Highway System.

Since 2005, ACRYLITE® Soundstop TL4 systems have been installed in 12 States / Provinces including California, Ohio, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Texas, and Ontario.

In 2016 Evonik Cyro has developed a new iteration of the Crashworthy noise barrier system in accordance with updated requirements of the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications (Section 15 – Design of Sound Barriers).In addition to design, computerized crash simulations have been run to visualize the performance and improve the design.
The results include Crashworthy* noise barrier systems for TL3, TL4, and TL5 applications.


*Crashworthy per the requirements of the AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specifications, not Crash-Tested.
ACRYLITE® Soundstop is a weather stable material offering effective noise control and wind protection Warrantied for 30 years, the panels are sound-reflecting, impact-resistant, and highly transparent. Options include transparent colors, translucent or opaque panels, bird safe stripes, and embedded polyamide threads in ACRYLITE® Soundstop GS CC panels for fragment retention (typically used with structure mounted noise barriers).

ACRYLITE® Soundstop Noise Barrier systems make it easy to incorporate clear noise barriers into any project: 

  • ACRYLITE® Soundstop Ready Fit Panels are fully fabricated framed panel assemblies which can be easily combined with or substituted for precast panel systems anywhere to provide an opening for light or views. The result is an attractive, cost effective solution to visibility and noise abatement problems. 
  • ACRYLITE® Soundstop Crashworthy Systems include the Crash-Tested ACRYLITE® Soundstop TL4 system plus new developments of safe yet lightweight noise barrier systems for use on bridges and elevated roadway applications where a noise barrier is to be placed in the zone of intrusion. See the Crashworthy Tab for more information on Crashworthy systems and options.   
  •  ACRYLITE® Soundstop Structure Mounted systems are customizable, lightweight systems typically used as a barrier for noise or pedestrian comfort where crashworthiness is not required. Design of structure mounted systems is more flexible than crashworthy systems which have to meet strict requirements.    
  •  The ACRYLITE® Soundstop Masonry Wall System adds attractive transparent panels to masonry block noise barrier walls. This easy to install system improves the look of the wall while reducing overall installation time and project cost. A single ACRYLITE® Soundstop panel can replace up to one hundred masonry blocks and allow continued unobstructed views.
