The AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling system will significantly reduce impact and airborne sounds. The product combination that makes this soundproofing system successful increases the mass and density of the ceiling as well as creating isolation and de-coupling. The AcoustiClip system isolates the new ceiling from the joist, absorbing sound that typically transfers through the structure. The 100mm DFM acoustic insulation slabs increase the mass/density of the ceiling; acoustic insulation slabs also stop sounds that resonate inside the ceiling cavity. The Noisestop 1+ Panel combines a 10kg mass loaded vinyl membrane and a 12.5mm acoustic plasterboard. The result is sound is dampened by the acoustic membrane and blocked due to the vinyl density and the plasterboard. The final layer is a 15mm acoustic plasterboard that adds more mass and density.
Soundproof systems will effectively block higher noise levels than any individual soundproofing product. Combining various products into soundproof systems ensures a higher reduction across a broader range of frequencies, ultimately stopping higher airborne and impact noise. You can rely on our ceiling acoustic panels.
AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling System Specifications
- System thickness 77mm (from the ceiling joist)
- Fire rating one hour
- Noise reduction
- Airborne 65dB (higher the figure the better)
- Impact 55dB (lower the figure the better)
- Reduce high levels of airborne and impact sound through your ceilings
- Apply onto ceilings with timber joists
- Part E compliant solution for separating floors/ceilings
Noise reduction and decibels – A three dB increase is equivalent to halving the level of sound. The higher the value for the airborne sound, the better the product performs. The lower the stated figure for impact sound, the better the product performs. Read the decibels explained guide for more help.
AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling System is used in various applications that require high levels of sound reduction. Use this solution in domestic and commercial applications; this system is used in music studios, cinema rooms, bars and restaurants. Install this system in your home if you require a high level of sound insulation.
Composition of AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling System
These materials are supplied with the AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling System
- Incorporate AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling System onto existing or new ceilings. To install this system, you must have access to the joist area
- Fill the cavity between the ceiling joist with the 100mm DFM acoustic insulation slabs to reduce sound resonating inside the void
- AcoustiClips increase isolation between the ceiling joist and the new ceiling, reducing the sound that transfers through the ceiling structure
- The AcoustiChannel fits into the AcoustiClips to ensure isolation from the joist and the plasterboard
- The Noisestop 1+ Panel incorporates soundblock plasterboard with a 10kg mass loaded vinyl mat, all pre-bonded to make installation quicker and easier than other self-adhesive methods
- 15mm Acoustic plasterboard then goes over the first layer to further increase the mass of the ceiling
- Acoustic sealant ensures an airtight seal
Fitting AcoustiClip Timber Ceiling System
- Incorporate AcoustiClip timber acoustic panels onto an existing ceiling. Remove the plasterboard so that the joist are exposed
- Fill the cavity between the joists with the 100mm DFM acoustic insulation slabs to reduce sound resonating inside the void
- Screw the AcoustiClip into the ceiling joists. Space the clips across the joists to a maximum of 900mm (every other joist) and150mm from the edge of the wall. The maximum space between the Acoustichannel should be no more than 600mm (see the diagram below)
- Clip the AcoustiChannel into the clips, join the lengths of the channel by overlapping them by 100mm and screwing them together with self-tapping or drywall screws
- Screw the Noisestop 1+ Panel into the AcoustChannel and then the final layer of 15mm Soundblock plasterboard over the top. Leave a 2-3mm gap around the perimeter of the wall to reduce noise transfer into the adjoining walls, ceilings and floors
- Acoustic sealant is applied between each of the acoustic panels and to the perimeter of the ceiling to ensure an airtight seal
The diagram shows the layer of mass loaded vinyl pre-bonded onto the acoustic plasterboard to form the Noisestop 1+ Panel. An alternative method of installing the boards would be first to fit the standard acoustic plasterboard and then overboard with the Noisestop 1+ Panel. The sheet of mass loaded vinyl is then between the two acoustic plasterboards. During sound tests, noise reduction is not dependent on where the vinyl layer is within the overall build-up.
