SOUND ISOLATION WALL AND CEILING – SSP DRYWALL MOUNTING CLIP

drywall mounting clip

Resiliently mounted wall and ceiling Gypsum board (Drywall/ Sheetrock/ Wallboard) is fast becoming an industry standard for reducing sound transfer between rooms. (Soundproofing Rooms).

Gypsum board Wallboard

The SSP Sound Isolation Mounting Clip is used with Drywall Furring Channel (DWFC) in order to mount drywall panels.  The clip has a molded neoprene element that provides high sound insulation between the panel and the framing.  Metal ends provide sturdy support.

Tested Composite Wall Constructions per ASTM E90 and ASTM 413 at Riverbank Labs.

Resilient Sound Isolation Wall and Ceiling Clip
SSP Clip Model SSPBenefits:

  • Highly effective sound control at lowest installed cost.
  • Quick and easy to install with standard drywall furring channel.
  • Weight capacity – 50 lbs. per clip maximum.
  • Maximizes available occupied space with low-profile design.
  • Performance range of STC 57 to STC 64 per laboratory tests, a substantial improvement vs. resilient channel.
  • Eliminates problem of hard attaching that is common with resilient channel.

 

 

Build-out of the pad/channel assembly is 1-1/2″

It mounts with  screws (or other fastener appropriate to the material to which it’s mounted), providing a low-profile sound control system that is low-cost and simple to implement.

One mount is required for every four sq. ft. of wallboard area.  A typical 8′ wall  would have SSP clips mounted to the DWFC  creating three horizontal rows, one a few inches from the top and one few inches from the bottom and another across the middle.  2″ Neoprene 3/8″ thick Vibration padsVibration Padsare spaced every 2′ on the floor to support the edge of the drywall panels.  The panels are then attached to the DWFC DWFCwith drywall screws in the normal manner.  A gap must be provided where the walls meet the ceiling and other walls and sealed with acoustical caulkassy_rubber clip to channel_01 _032504.jpg (40552 bytes)DWFC screws

The gap at the floor is sealed either with lots of caulk and/or with “Backer Square” to reduce the amount of caulk needed to seal the large gap left by the vibration pad.  Adding one layer of 5/8″ Fire Code Drywall in this manner will more than double the sound reduction of the existing wall.  More sound reduction would be obtained by adding more sound control elements into the project.

Ceilings are handled similar to the above.  Installation details are the same as for other clips.

 

 

 

Cost is only $5.40 each plus shipping.
A Sample with DWFC furring channel attached- Postage Paid: $11.60
TIP:  If you decide to not use the soundclips or resilient channel, at least do the “Poor Mans” soundproofing by padding the surface of the studs/joists with our soft padding   sound isolation tape before installing your drywall panels.
We have the correct DWFC (track) for the ISO Mount- in 5′ lengths- we also have it with iso-tape padding already applied!  ISO mountNotice: about the availability of steel track: Supplies are tight, make sure you can get the proper  guage material before you start your job!  Best to order from us to make sure.  buy now
