The IsoMax Clip System is a high performing, space conserving sound reduction system that has been developed by CMS Danskin, designed to eliminate “direct contact”. IsoMax are intelligently designed clips that are attached to ceiling or wall joists; because of their unique design and use of furring channels, IsoMax isolates plasterboard or drywall from nonisolated structures.
How IsoMax Sound Isolation Clips Works
The IsoMax Clip System has been designed to act as shock absorbers in structures. When the sound hits the decoupled layer of plasterboard it will begin to vibrate, however since the plasterboard is isolated it will absorb most of the vibrations, meaning they are unable to reach the main structure.
Features & Benefits
- Offers a robust and higher performing alternative to traditional wall and ceiling isolation methods
- Outperforms standard resilient bar construction by up to 7dB
- Withstands greater loads than standard systems to provide peace of mind for developers and dwellers
- Reduces the risk of error at installation stage, as screws cannot be inadvertently attached to the stuff or joist through the resilient area
- Works as a space saving solution for either existing or new wall constructions, with minimal encroachment into living space
- For situations where fire protection is a consideration, fire rated wall and ceiling systems are also available
- Offer ones of the most cost effective methods available to achieve superior noise controls in walls and ceilings whilst using standard materials
Ensure that any plasterboard or dry wall is removed, exposing the joists otherwise the drywall could impede the performance of the IsoMax clips.
When you begin attaching the clips to the joist ensure that they are held in place with one screw, do not fix using two otherwise it may cause complications whilst attaching the furring channels.
Ensure that between each column that there is no more than 1200mm, anything larger than this will impede the structural integrity of the plasterboards. (Between each IsoMax clip there should be no more than 600mm).
Once the clips are in place begin attaching the furring channels. If the channels are not long enough to cover the full width of the room try overlapping the furring channels (there should be a 150mm overlap between each furring channel).
The furring channels should not sit flush against the wall. Once the furring channels have been attached to each clip you can begin fixing the clips in place permanently with a second screw.
