Installation Overview

  • RESILIENT INTERFACE

    Adhere resilient interface (SRP by KNC) to all penetrations and perimeters. SRP prevents sound vibration from transferring from the isolated slab to the non-isolated structure.

  • POSITION CHANNEL

    Place Channel runs per shop drawings.

  • TRIM CHANNEL

    Trim ends of and adhere pads as necessary to maintain 4" maximum cantilever. Add optional fiberglass batting between channel.

  • INSTALL PLYWOOD

    Minimum of two layers, staggered and cross lapped.

  • INSTALL FINISH FLOORING

    Follow flooring manufacturer’s installation instructions.

  • FINISH PERIMETER

    Trim SRP and seal perimeter gap.


  • Channels stack tightly and are portable on a jobsite
  • Pad and channel spacing can be customized for specific acoustic and/or load requirements
  • Can be mechanically fastened to rooftops while maintaining isolation
  • Can be used with or without noise absorptive batt

For added acoustic performance and load distribution, consider FIC-C which substitutes the wood composite for concrete.
