The Allan Block Fence System was recently approved by the BC Ministry of Transportation (MOT RPL) for highway projects as a proven noise abatement structure. Allan Block was added with this distinction to the MOT’s Recognized Product List on October 1, 2013 and is now available for the use on Ministry noise barrier applications.

With the increase of population and development in British Columbia, communities are in need of noise abatement standards to improve liveability along heavily trafficked roadways & highways. These standards will:

  • Support Sustainable Communities
  • Reduce Noise
  • Include Expert Support – from Engineering & Design to Construction
  • Create A New Standard in Sound Attenuation
  • Provide A Solution That Adds Beauty and Fits the Terrain
  • Provide Cost Effective Form & Function
  • Combine Retaining Wall and Noise Wall Solutions – Matching Colors  & Textures
  • Create Quiet & Safe Neighborhoods

The AB Fence, along with the complete Allan Block product line, is manufactured for all of Western Canada by Expocrete, an Oldcastle Company. Both companies are committed to providing cost-effective solutions for sound walls and retaining wall structures for residential, commercial and Ministry projects and are excited with this expanded approval by the MOT.

With millions of square feet of products installed throughout the world, Allan Block has the resources to deliver performance and quality to every project.
