Canterbury Bat Screen | Acoustic Screen

Canterbury bat


There was an Urgent request from ABB, a multinational leader in power and automation technologies that enable utility and industry customers to improve performance while lowering environmental impact. They were confronted with the largest roosting Colony of Bats in the United Kingdom to date on their site.


dBA assessed the situations and confirmed that a screen was required to reduce site noise, but most importantly to avoid any disturbance to the Bats, especially during mating season.


Designed in just under four days and on site within three weeks working to and achieving the clients site timescale, dBA installed extremely fast and incredibly efficiently. Bespoke sliding doors were designed and installed swiftly. The Bats remained undisturbed throughout this installation and there was a huge dB reduction.
