    MODEL ICW WOOD-FRAME CEILING HANGER INSTALLATION GUIDELINES

    The ICW ceiling Hanger system is the perfect answer for anybody that wants to eliminate any type of noise from the floor above. (i.e., shoes such as high heels, movement of chairs, furniture, children playing and so on.) The reason why you cannot order on line is because there are 5 different ICW's each with a different spring load,
    Once spacing of the ceiling hangers is determined and sketched, three (3) general areas of the ceiling require load calculations: mid-room, along the perimeter, and in the corners.
    Chandeliers, ceiling fans, air ducts etc., the weight of these items needs to be considered when determining the appropriate number/capacity of hangers required. Once we receive a detailed diagram of your ceiling(s) our engineers will comprise a detailed Cad drawing with the placement of the hangers.

    The Kinetics ICW wood-frame ceiling hangers secure to wood-frame construction (e.g., joists, trusses), and have a one-inch deflection spring in series with a neoprene cup to resiliently support one or more layers of gypsum board. The bracket design allows the isolator to be installed on the joists to optimize ceiling height.

    The ICW hangers can be installed 48 inches apart.

    A channel clip and threaded leveling-rod assembly are designed to carry a single piece of 1-1/2-by-1/2-in. 16-gauge steel carrying channel. Drywall furring channel is then attached to the carrying channel 16 inches on center to take the place of ceiling board strapping.

    Resilient channel is then installed over the carrying channel.

    The end result is a ceiling that is isolated from the house frame, providing vibration isolation. On this installation several factors necessitated us to install the brackets and run our carrying channel perpendicular to the joists. Either direction will work with this ceiling system.

    Screw the resilient channel into the 16-guage steel, overlapping the ends to join separate segments.

    According to the manufacturer, the ICW ceiling with two layers of drywall plus Roxul Safe'n'Sound soundproofing insulation, you must leave a an air cavity between the Roxul and the ceiling. The air cavity helps increase sound isolation.

    A band saw can be used to cut resilient channel to length with-out distorting its shape.

    The ICW hangers can be installed 48 inches apart and no more than 16 inches from the perimeters of the room.
