Green Glue Soundproofing
Green Glue Soundproofing products provide economical solutions for reducing sound transmission in commercial, residential and industrial applications. It can be used in wall, floor and ceiling assemblies. When applied, the damping compound, sound sealant, isolation clips and joist tape assist to diminish the amount of sound and noise being passed from room to room.
These products are easy to use and make a great option for a DIY project or a larger scale construction. Green Glue products work as part of a complete system. This grants us the ability to create and offer more extensive solutions for architects, contractors and the home DIY enthusiast. Be sure to include these as part of your next new construction or retrofit soundproofing project.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound, when applied between layers of wall board, decouples these layers to reduce the transmission of sound and noise vibration. This is a simple solution that applies in minutes. For smaller projects, the Tubes of Green Glue easily applies using a standard 28 oz. caulking gun. Typical usage is two tubes per a 4′ x 8′ sheet of drywall.
For larger construction projects, we suggest purchasing the 5-gallon buckets of Green Glue damping compound. This will require the 5-Gallon Applicator Gun. The applicator gun works in a similar fashion to a regular caulking gun. Simply dip the tip into the Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound (5-Gallon) bucket to pull the damping compound into the gun. Then apply the compound as required to the back of the drywall or gypsum board.
Once structures are in place, be sure to use Green Glue Soundproofing Sealant or acoustical caulk to prevent sound leakage through holes, gaps or seams. Any spaces or gaps in the construction that allow air to pass, will also allow sound to pass. Use Green Glue Soundproofing Sealant during all phases of construction to ensure there is no place sound might leak through. We also carry putty pads to seal electrical box outlets for this same reason.
For new construction or if there are no exiting walls, this is an opportunity to incorporate Whisper™ Clips into the construction assembly. Combine Green Glue Isolation Clips with Green Glue Damping Compound to provide additional resiliency to the structure. Used in conjunction with resilient channel, Green Glue Whisper™ Clips help to sever the vibration connection between wall board and the stud structure. This prevents sound vibrations from traveling directly through the building construction materials and into the attached layers of drywall.
Green Glue Noiseproofing Joist Tape applies easily to floor joists to help to eliminate squeaky floors. Installed beneath the subfloor floor, joist tape is typically combined with sound barriers, underlayments and other construction materials to aid in building heavy-duty, sound blocking structures and prevent footfall noise.
