Sound isolation clips work by decoupling the drywall or gypsum board from the underlying structure. The clips are attached to the framing members, and the drywall is attached to the clips using screws. This creates a gap between the drywall and the framing members, which acts as a resilient connection that isolates the drywall from the structure. When sound waves or vibration energy pass through the drywall, they are absorbed by the air in the gap and dissipated, rather than being transmitted through the structure. This significantly reduces the amount of noise and vibration that is transferred from one room to another, or from the building to the surrounding environment. Easyflex offers two type of sound isolation clips, EasyMute and EasyGrip.
Proper installation of sound isolation clips is crucial to ensure their effectiveness. Here are some considerations:
Correct spacing: The spacing between the clips should be in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions to ensure proper load distribution.
Use the right clip: Make sure to use the appropriate clip for the weight and size of the drywall being installed.
Secure attachment: The clips should be securely attached to the framing members using appropriate screws or fasteners.
Level alignment: The clips should be installed level to ensure that the drywall is properly supported.
Use resilient channels: In addition to sound isolation clips, it is recommended to use resilient channels between the drywall and ceiling or wall to further isolate the drywall from the structure.
Seek professional advice: If you are not experienced in installing sound isolation clips, it is recommended to seek professional advice to ensure proper installation.
