Resilient Sound Isolation Clip (RSIC-1)

Estimated Shipping Lead Time: 2-3 business days

A Resilient Sound Isolation Clip (RSIC-1) creates a high STC (Sound Transmission Classification) rating for your wall or ceiling assembly and offers an economical method to “float” your walls or ceilings. These isolation clips are used for vibration control of structure-borne noise and help build assemblies that will more effectively block airborne noise transmission. For higher rated sound blocking applications with improved STC ratings, use isolation clips in combination with our AudioSeal® Sound Barrier or Green Glue Damping Compound.

Resilient Isolation Clips are made with a natural blend neoprene grommet pad and threaded shaft, which is attached to a center bushing made of electroplated zinc mild steel. The center bushing is approximately 20 mm long, with a 10 mm shaft section and 21.5 mm end clip. The natural neoprene isolator is 1 1/2″ x 1/2″.

The RSIC-1 model is designed for use with any wood, steel or concrete application where noise control is required. This includes, wood framed, steel framed, CMU or concrete wall or ceiling systems. The RSIC-1 assembly decouples the gypsum board from the underlying structure to provide enhanced acoustical performance. With an acoustical design load rating of 36 lbs. per isolator, the clip can support up to two layers of 5/8″ gypsum board when spaced no more than 24″ x 48″ O.C. The RSIC-1 clip fastens directly to the framing or structure to prevent sound and vibrations from entering the adjacent space. This improves the STC and IIC ratings of construction assemblies.

    Excellent – the secret weapon!

  7. Verified Customer

    This product really makes easy the installation of channel. is fast and strong.
    I considered that such installation is even faster than applied it directly to framing members.
    I am really satisfied.
    I do not see needs any improvement.

    Used to add to demising wall in order
    to cut down or eliminate sound transfer
    from one Tenant's to another.

  11. Verified Customer

    Used for a basement remodel where acoustics were important, easy to install and very much improved (decreased) sound transfer
