Case Study

Acoustic Wall for Rosanna Train Station

The Project

ASKIN Volcore Panel was used for an acoustic wall system for Rosanna Station. As well as minimising noise from railway traffic, the construction also required the Volcore panel to meet the requirements of a non-combustible cladding system.

As part of the Victorian State Government railway upgrade, the level crossing at Rosanna Station was removed, making way for the construction of a new station featuring elevated platforms and improved facilities.


Acoustic Wall for Rosanna Train Station



Core: Volcore
  • ViviD Seamless
  • COLORBOND® Monument
  • Specification
  • Engineering

The Challenge

The new railway platform was built beside residential apartments and required an acoustic wall to minimise the noise from railway traffic. Being in close proximity to a multi residential development, it was also required to be non-combustible cladding system.

To ensure noise regulations were adhered too, the panel component of the wall system required a minimum Rw rating of 31.

In addition to providing acoustic performance, the wall needed to visually blend in with existing feature screening used throughout the train station’s design.

The Solutions

ASKIN Performance Panels manufactured and installed ViviD Volcore panel in COLORBOND® Monument with a seamless profile.

ASKIN ViviD came with a custom designed a multi-coloured rib system to attach to the Volcore panel to match existing screening and roofing profile while ensuring no effect to the acoustic performance of the panel.

Benefits of ASKIN Volcore acoustic wall panels:

  • Effective for any noise reduction application including residential apartments, large warehouse sectors, and loud noise polluters like railways and train stations
  • Multiple colour and design options
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Non-combustible cladding

The Results

Victoria’s Rosanna Train Station is now open and includes an acoustic wall separating nearby housing from train station noise whilst blending in aesthetically. The new station is part of the $395 million Hurstbridge Rail Line Upgrade. With the increased addition of transportation hubs and rail stations across the country, the need for acoustic walls with a high fire performance core is vital for protecting the environment and keeping the peace within local communities.
