Sound Isolation Clips for Walls and Ceilings

Patent No. 7,093,814
Sound Isolation Clips

Low Cost, Space Saving Walls and Ceilings

Designers wanting low-cost, space-saving ceilings and walls that provide superior noise control employ KINETICS® IsoMax sound isolation clips. Offering significantly higher STC values than drywall attached to resilient channel, IsoMax ensures that installers will not inadvertently screw through the “resilient” leg of the channel into the joist or stud. This feature cannot be underestimated given the frequent, unknown occurrences where resilient channel is accidentally rendered ineffective because it is hard-attached.

The IsoMax Advantage

  • Low cost for high performance Save Labor with IsoMax
  • Flexible “snap-on” clips install quickly, and allow for height adjustments during installation of channel
  • Error free installation of standard drywall furring channel. Eliminates accidental short circuiting common with resilient channel
  • Easiest method for STC 55+ stud wall assemblies
  • Can easily accommodate furring channel widths from 2.38" - 2.75"
