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.
They are 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 whenever you are considering soundproofing walls or ceilings. Soundbreaker bars are also the perfect solution for any 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.
Use Soundbreaker Bars on Part E Separating Ceilings
If you are creating separate dwellings between floors for either new build or conversion projects you should use soundbreaker bars in the construction of the ceiling. Ensure your project complies with Building regulations by incorporating soundbreaker bars, acoustic insulation and two layers of acoustic plasterboard. Finalise the construction with a suitable floor covering comprising of either acoustic underlays or floating floors.
