Soundwalls featuring SoundSorb acoustical material trap noise from both the ground and the elevated sections of this railway, keeping it from reflecting to area businesses and residential areas in this densely populated area. In addition to the walls, SoundSorb blocks were made to line underneath the rails as well, to absorb the wheel noise of the speeding trains.
West Rail, Hong Kong's metro system, starts at Hung Hom Station in Yau Tsim Mong District and ends at Tuen Mun Station in Tuen Mun. West Rail averages 200,000 riders a year. More than 1.4 million square feet of SoundSorb was used on the railway's parapets to reduce noise the railway emits.
Outside the Chicago area, the Canadian Railway heads north and through the neighborhoods of Des Plaines, Illinois. The local residents are no longer disturbed by the noise pollution. CSI's licensee installed SoundSorb on both sides of this elevated railway project. The panels on the outside of the railway capture ambient sound from the city, while the panels inside quiet noise from the rails themselves. This is important because trains act as moving walls, so the SoundSorb keeps the rail noise from reflecting off of the train itself and over the wall to area residents.
