Our Case Study

Ryman Health Care

Hushtec’s marketing manager went to go visit one of Ryman Health Care’s construction sites in Takapuna, Auckland and met up with Karl Drent the Site Supervisor.

Ryman Health Care has been creating and building retirement villages for the past 39 years and still going strong.

One of their recent builds in Takapuna is in a beautiful neighbourhood within close walking distance to the beach and local shops. And this is why they needed to install the Hushtec Noise Control Barriers while the new village is being built.

No one wants to hear the loud noise of a full-on construction site in their living rooms.

Ryman Health Care reached out to Hushtec to provide them to get the right amount of noise barriers they will need to keep the community comfortable while building a new retirement village.

Kent said that these panels are an easier product to install in comparison to other noise control solutions and what makes it even better is that you can install it on uneven surfaces as well. Which makes it easy and fast to install no matter what the conditions are.

Kent wanted to test out these panels (just for himself) so while the site was busy and full of machines doing their job, he stood in front of the barrier to hear how loud the noise of the machines was and then he moved behind the barrier, and he was amazed by the outcome. “I did not expect the noise to be reduced by such a level, I’m sure all the neighbours are happy we installed these.

We also had the opportunity to speak to Thalia Gunn the Quality Assurance Coordinator for this site, and she mentioned that dealing with Hushtec was a breeze, she could always rely on Hushtec for a speedy response, and she was amazed that they received the barrier earlier than expected, which was great news because then they could start working with their big digger sooner than later.

HUSHTEC® panels can be used on-site to create any spec noise wall, to the height and length required. Each panel also features our overlap hook and loop system to ensure panels are joined efficiently and seamlessly!

NZ Made, quietly helping the world.

Learn More About the Experiences of Hushtec Customers

Hushtec is our preferred noise mitigation partner, they have been helping us for years now and being able to also have full customisation on already unique high performing products is just WOW factor. Guys on-site love them for how easy and practical they are to shift alongside how effective they are at reducing noise on some of our louder machines such as rock hammers and concrete cutters.

I used to think noise barrier blankets didn’t work until I tried the Hushtec panels. These reduced our noise on-site immediately, which enabled us to continue works throughout the night on an urgent project, saving our customer thousands and helping complete the project before scheduled. The team is also very knowledgeable and helpful, couldn’t ask for more.

Hushtec panels are awesome!! No more complaints from our neighbours, more privacy and safety for our on-site staff, and free marketing with our logo printed on them! Highly recommend.
