As the exclusive supplier of ACRYLITE Soundstop in North America, Armtec was chosen to supply barrier walls for James Hunter Park. Not only does ACRYLITE reduce noise coming from the park, it adds an aesthetic that is second to none.

The James Hunter dog park, at North Herndon and 13th streets, is located in Lyon Village, just minutes from the
Clarendon Metro. More than 8,000 people live within a ten minute walk of the 0.71 acre park and nearly 15,000 more work in this bustling area.
Residents describe the park as “a huge perk” to living in the area. The park offers those who live and work in the Metro corridor a much-needed space to mingle, exercise, play or relax. The Arlington County Board awarded a $1.46 million contract to Springfield based Avon Corp. for renovations to the James Hunter dog park — plus $220,000 for contingencies.

Armtec’s Acrylite Acrylic Soundstop barriers were chosen to skirt this neighborhood hot spot, providing both an attractive and functional sound and safety barrier. Armtec provided a complete design and engineering for 207 linear feet of wall, 32 HSS posts, galvanized and powder coated, 31 sheets of clear Acrylite, with etched “bird striping” bent to fit as required in each curved section, along with aluminum bottom channels and appropriate gasket for installation.
