Soundproofing Isolation Clips
Sound isolation clips are used to reduce vibration and structure-borne noise that is transferred between adjacent areas of a building. They allow you to separate the walls from the ceiling, floor, and even other walls in a process known as decoupling. These isolation clips attached to the underlying wall studs, joists, and hat channels screwed into the drywall, creating a “floating wall”. This means that vibrations and sound waves that hit one wall have to travel through these clips to reach the adjacent wall. Since the isolation clips are made of materials that don’t conduct sound, very little sound is transferred, resulting in a significantly quieter space.
Isolation clips are especially effective at reducing the transfer of low-frequency sound from transmitting across the room where they're installed. This makes them an effective tool when it comes to soundproofing an office, meeting room, or areas of a house that can be loud such as the game room or living room.
Isolation & Soundproofing Products
Sound Isolation Clips offer a highly effective method to significantly reduce structure-borne sound at an affordable price. They are typically installed in a grid at a spacing not to exceed 24" along the length of the stud or joist and no more than 48" perpendicular to the stud or joist. When utilizing soundproofing clips for drywall installation, the drywall furring channels (AKA “hat” channels) are attached to the clips and the clips are then fastened to the studs or joists, following the supplied instructions.
Sound dampening clips are available in a variety of configurations, each able to support a specific weight load, such as 36-pounds, 72-pounds, 144-pounds and as much as 288-pounds. Soundproofing clips are available individually or in case quantities at a discount. We also carry furring hat channels and a variety of other soundproofing and noise-reduction products for all your acoustical needs.
