SmogStop™ Barrier

SmogStop™ Barrier takes a two-pronged approach to reducing air pollution from major roads, highways and railways.

Patented Aerodynamic Design

SmogStop™ Barrier’s aerodynamic design serves two main purposes. First, it directs traffic emissions into a channel and towards a photocatalytic coating that treats the pollutants. Second, it generates vortexes and enhances vertical mixing of emissions with clean air, significantly decreasing pollution levels in surrounding neighbourhoods.

Advanced computer models and wind tunnel testing conducted by Western University and the University of Guelph proved that SmogStop™ can reduce traffic emissions in downwind neighbourhoods by 58 per cent compared to a conventional noise barrier.

Photocatalytic Coating

SmogStop™ features a proprietary coating that breaks down the NOX and VOCs that produce smog. Powered by sunlight, it transforms these pollutants into harmless gases and water.

Wind tunnel tests at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology prove the aerodynamic design coupled with the photocatalytic coating can reduce NO and NO2 levels up to 37 per cent. Over the course of a year, a single kilometre of SmogStop™ barrier can remove 16 tonnes of NOX — the equivalent of taking 200,000 cars off that stretch of road.

Meanwhile, laboratory testing at the University of Toronto shows SmogStop™ is twice as efficient as titanium dioxide. And unlike titanium dioxide, which develops a scale that reduces its efficiency over time, our proprietary coating produces harmless byproducts that do not compromise performance.

Armtec is partnering with Envision SQ and we’re the exclusive distributors of SmogStop™ for North America.
