Description

Soundbreaker Bars

Soundbreaker bars are designed to significantly improve the sound insulation of walls and ceilings. The soundbreaker bars effectively separate plasterboard and soundproof panels from the stud frame or ceiling joist. The decoupling of the building structure from the plasterboard reduces sound transferring from room to room.

An integral part of any wall and ceiling soundproofing solution to achieve the best possible level of isolation you should consider using these acoustic hangers when ever you are considering soundproofing walls or ceilings. Soundbreaker bars are essential when you have a project that requires Building Regulations Part E compliance.

Soundbreaker Bars on Walls

Reduce sound transfer between rooms by attaching the acoustic hangers to timber and metal studs. Fix the bars horizontally across studs at 600mm centres and fix the boarding to the corrugated fixing flange. The soundbreaker bars will reduce sound that transfers through walls by absorbing sound that would normally vibrate through the structure of the wall. The unique design decouples the plasterboard from the stud frame.

Soundbreaker Bars on Ceilings

Soundproof ceilings with soundbreaker bars when they are installed on to timber ceiling joists. Bars are attached at right angles to the joist. Spacing for the bars on ceilings should be approximately 400mm centres. The bars reduce sound that transfers through the ceiling by absorbing sound that would normally vibrate through the ceilings structure. The unique design decouples the plasterboard from the ceiling joist.

Product Fitting Guide

Soundbreaker Bars

Sound breaking panel
Soundbreaker Bars

 

Soundbreaker bars are an acoustic hanger used to increase isolation to increase the sound insulation when installed on to walls and ceilings. Increase the separation between plasterboard and soundproof panels from stud walls and ceiling joists.

 Soundbreaker bars absorb vibration that carries sound waves through the structure of a wall or ceiling. Reducing the vibration reduces the over all level of sound that would transmit through a wall or ceiling with out the separation created by installing the bars.

Quick fixing guide for soundbreaker bars

  • Fixed to walls and ceilings
  • Only use on timber or metal studs and timber ceiling joists
  • Attach the bars by screwing through the pre-drilled holes
  • The pre-drilled holes go to the bottom and the corrugated section faces into the room when fixing to walls
  • No need for drilling into the bars
  • Screw straight through the boarding into the corrugated section of the bar
  • Space at 600m for walls
  • Space at 300-350mm for ceilings

Fitting soundbreaker bars

Soundbreaker bars can be fitted on to any type of stud frame including timber and metal frame. The acoustic hangers can also be fitted to ceiling joists.

You should not fix the bars straight over plasterboarded walls and ceilings, or directly on to solid walls. The bars should only be fixed into stud work.

Soundbreaker bars are fastened to the wall or ceiling with screws. You will not need specialist screws; you can use any type of screw. Ensure the screw is a minimum of 25mm long.

Fitting the bars to stud work or ceiling joists

Before you begin fixing the bars its wroth noting which way round the bars are fitted when fixing them to a wall. The narrow edge of the bar has pre-drilled holes running along the full length of the bar. This is the edge that comes into contact with the stud frame or ceiling joist.

The bar is attached at right angles to the stud or ceiling joist. Attach the bar by screwing through the pre-drilled holes along the edge of the bar as they contact the stud or joist. If your wall or ceiling is longer than 3m you should overlap the bar at the nearest stud or ceiling joist.

Spacing the bars on walls and ceilings

The correct spacing for bars fitted to a stud wall is 600mm. The first bar is fitted to the bottom of the wall, approximately 50mm up from the floor. The second bar you fix should be 600mm from the floor to the centre of the corrugated fixing edge. Repeat the process up the wall centring each bar at 600mm. A bar will also need to be fitted at the top of the wall approximately 50mm from the ceiling. Following this method will ensure you have a minimum of three bars per board to fix into.

Bars are fixed to ceiling joists in a similar way to walls, fastening through the holes along the edge of the bar into the ceiling joist. The bars are run at right angles to the direction of the joists. The spacing for the bars on ceilings is between300-350mm between the bars. Following this method will ensure you have a minimum of four bars per board to fix into.

Attaching plasterboard and soundproof panels to soundbreaker bars

Once you have fitted the bars you can fix the plasterboard or soundproof panels to the bars. You will not require any specialist screws to attach the boards to the bars

Fix the boarding into the bars by screwing through the boards into the wide corrugated fixing flange of the bar. You will not need to drill any holes beforehand; the screws will puncture the bar and hold the boards in place.

You should have three bars per board to fix into if you are soundproofing walls. If you are fitting on to ceilings you should have four bars to fit on to. Use a minimum of five screws when attaching the boards to the bars, for walls and ceilings.

How will my order be delivered?

The majority of orders we despatch are sent on pallets. We use a network of pallet distribution companies across the UK. All our pallet deliveries are kerbside deliveries. This means the pallet will be delivered as near to the delivery address as possible. Pallets are unloaded form the vehicles with a pallet truck. If it is possible the pallets can be dropped on driveways if they are accessible with the pallet truck.

Pallet deliveries are normally made on 7.5 tonne vehicles that are similar in size to bin lorries. Occasionally larger vehicles are used. If you know of any reason why it might be difficult to deliver to your address with this type of vehicle please let us so we can pass the information on to the delivery company. Typical delivery problems can include parking restrictions, access issues for certain size vehicles, low bridges and overhanging trees. Call 01423 339163 if you are unsure.

Unfortunately the delivery drivers will not bring the goods into your property or unload the individual items from the pallets.

Many of our items are heavy and often require two people to carry them safely.

All orders sent on pallets are wrapped and secured to the pallet to protect them while in transit. Once you have received your order we would recommend storing the materials inside. If you are planning on leaving your goods outside you should use additional covering to protect them from any adverse weather conditions.

Damaged or missing items

In the unfortunate event that items are damaged or missing when your order arrives you should sign damaged or missing items on the drivers paperwork. Call 01423339163 to let us know of the issue to allow us to quickly rectify the problem.

We might ask for a picture of the damage, this is to speed up the process of arranging a suitable solution.

To enable us to quickly resolve any issues with your delivery it is important that you sign for your delivery when it arrives.

Returns

Can I return items from my order? Yes you can return unused items from your order that are in a salable condition. We can arrange to collect any unused materials and have them brought back to us. We would refund the cost of the items returned back to us less the shipping cost incurred by the company collecting the items.

Alternatively you can arrange to return the materials back to us and we would issue a refund once they have been received.

Special delivery note if you order soundbreaker bars as part of a wall or ceiling kit

If you order a wall or ceiling soundproofing kit that include soundbreaker bars these will be delivered separately from the pallet. we are not able to despatch the bars with the pallet. The soundbreaker bars are too long to go with the pallet so they will be delivered separately. No additional charges are incurred for the separate deliveries. We try to ensure the pallet and the bars arrive on the same day, occasionally this might not happen. Normally both deliveries are made within 24 hours of each other.

*All prices displayed are exclusive of VAT @ 20%. This will be added at the end of the checkout process before you confirm your order.

If you require any additional information regarding deliveries please give us a call 01423 339163, alternatively get in touch via our contacts page.

How do I attach the bars to the stud frame or ceiling joist?

Answer: The bars are screwed directly into stud frames and ceiling joists by using the pre-drilled holes that run along the edge of the bars. You do not have to do any drilling to fix these acoustic hangers.

Which way up do I fix the bars to my stud work?

Answer: You attach the hangers to stud frames with the pre-drilled fixing section of the bars at the bottom. The wider corrugated flange should be facing into the room.

How do you fix the panels to the soundbreaker bars?

Answer: The boards that are being fixed to the bars are screwed straight into the wide corrugated section of the bar. You will not need to drill any holes. The screws will go through the panel and puncture the corrugated section of the bar.

How do you cut soundbreaker bars?

Answer: The acoustic hangers can be cut using tin ships or cut to size with a hack saw.
