Acoustic hangers isolate plasterboard and soundproof panels from stud
walls and ceiling joists to reduce sound and vibration.
Increase the sound insulation of walls and ceilings, reduce airborne and
impact noise that will vibrate along solid surfaces such as wall studs and
ceiling joists by attaching soundbreaker bars before you fix the plasterboard
or acoustic panels. The bars are designed to reduce sound as it vibrates
through the buildings structure; they also decouple the stud work and the
plasterboard reducing the surface area that connects the plasterboard to the
stud due to the unique shape of the bar. You should consider using the
soundbreaker bar when you are considering soundproofing for walls and ceilings,
the minimal space loss to the room make it an ideal product to use in a soundproofing
system. Soundbreaker Bars are used as part of a Part E compliant ceiling
structure for separating floors.
Soundbreaker bars are attached to timber or metal studs using screws. Fasten
the bars by screwing into stud work through the predrilled holes that run along
one edge of the bar. Once you have attached the bar to the stud work the wide
flat flange should be facing into the room, if using on a wall the wide flange
should be pointing upwards, so when boards are attached to the bars they pull
away from the wall slightly. We calculate the number of bars needed based on square meterage, one bar per sqm for wall soundproofing systems and one and a half bars per sqm for ceiling soundproofing systems.
