    Description

    In designing a Home Theater, it is necessary to isolate walls and ceiling from the existing structure. “Float” We start by isolating drywall walls and ceiling from the structure when attached to either steel or wooden studs. Resilient sound clips are isolation mounts that install in rows directly to the ceiling or wall framing."In addition to Resilient sound clips on the ceiling, the ICW ceiling Hanger system is the perfect answer for anybody that wants to eliminate any type of noise from the floor above." The resilient clips then have furring hat channel attached via pressure fit and layers of drywall fasten to the channel. Decoupling is the most effective way to isolate sound over all other methods including damping, mass, and absorption products. These isolation clips are used for vibration control of structure-borne noise, and help build assemblies that will more effectively block airborne noise transmission.

    On the walls, the resilient channels were held in place by isolation clips.

    The installation of the IsoMax Sound Isolation Clips is easy and requires two screws each. They can be spaced a maximum of 48 inches and the furring channels spaced 24 inches apart. The top row should be maximum 6 inches to the center of the channel from the ceiling.Kinetics CPT-Ceiling Perimeter Tape provides good resilient decoupling characteristics at ceiling perimeter. and the bottom row maximum 3 inches to the center of the channel from the floor. Kinetics Noise Control Model RWS, Resilient Wall Strip will provide resilient support and maximize sound control, a resilient wall strip shall be installed at the base of resiliently supported gypsum board.

    On the walls, the resilient channels were held in place by isolation clips.

    When using this system on walls, make sure the first layer of drywall seams align over the center-line of the horizontal furring channels.

    Align the IsoMax in a level layout along the wall and screw them to the face of the studs.

    All potential sound leaks—gaps around outlets, window, or doorframes; pipe penetrations and the like—should be sealed with a non-hardening acoustical sealant

    The hat-shaped profile of the resilient channel fits into the clips.

    Continue covering the wall with resilient channels spaced 16 inches on center. Gypsum wallboard will be installed over the resilient channel to reduce vibration between the drywall and the wall framing.

    Doors, lights and HVAC vents are other ways sound will find its way in or out of your room and should be considered part of your plan. There are commercially available products for treating all three, such as insulated ducts, dead vents, special caulking, weather-stripped and insulated doors, air-lock double doors and recessed light backer boxes. Unsealed outlet boxes are known sound leaks in stud wall assemblies. A wall designed for noise control will not perform to expectations when outlets are unsealed, particularly when outlets are back-to-back in the same stud cavity. Kinetics IsoBacker outlet pads can be hand formed around the back of the outlet box to prevent this common sound leakage problem in stud walls.

    On this project the doors were the weak link; there were no soundproofing measures applied to them. The architect, however, designed these doors with an outer foyer that also had doors.

    If the homeowner truly wants soundproofing they will need to close both sets of doors and add a Basic Door Gasket Set and sweeps.

    Improvement “Sounds” Like a Plan

    Soundproofing products often come with a Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating. STC is a measure of how many decibels of sound reduction a product provides. The higher the STC rating, the better.

    A change of just 10 STC will result in a massive improvement.

    Whatever you decide, attack noise using all four principles to reduce the transmission from inside and outside your home. After limiting or eliminating noise makers, utilize sound-absorbing materials and decoupling systems to lessen the effect of noise.

    The walls and doors of our project house were already framed, but if I had my way I would have followed the “old school” method of soundproofing and constructed a staggered stud wall at the staircase and bathroom wall of this room. Staggered walls are basically two walls built very close together. Drywall is only attached to the outward-facing side of each set of studs, and high-performance soundproofing insulation is used to fill the void between them. This is more economical than actually building two walls, and achieves similar performance in a narrower profile.

    1-Simple math to calculate amount of clips needed:

    Square feet of wall or celling divided by 4.1 x 10%=

    2-Calculator:

    Across is length of wall
    Down is Hight of wall
    Number at center point is the amount of clips needed for each wall.
