The Whisper Clip was designed to be the highest performance sound isolation clip on the market, while remaining cost competitive.
How It Works:
Whisper Clips and channels are used in the process of decoupling walls and/or ceilings from the joists, creating what is called a floating wall or ceiling. Decoupling the wall or ceiling helps prevent vibrations from traveling from one side of the structure to the other.
This break in the path greatly reduces the amount of noise that travels from one side to the other in two ways. Firstly, there is no direct connection for sound to travel via the joists as the wall/ceiling is disconnected. Secondly, the wall and ceiling are given resiliency (flexibility), thus greatly reducing vibration (similar to shock springs on a car).hat
Commercial Whisper Clips offer a low priced option with high STC rating, ideal for large-scale soundproofing projects. For smaller projects, or for a higher STC rating, our Standard Whisper Clips are recommended.
Whisper Clips are from the highest performing resilient sound clips available on the market. Its patented design delivers decoupling and resilience that is unmatched by any conventional Resilient Channels. By decoupling the drywall from the ceiling and/or wall, Whisper Clips can achieve an astounding STC of 55 with just one layer of drywall. See Technical Data Sheet for more information.
Whisper Clips were designed with maximum low frequency sound isolation in mind, so walls fortified with whisper clips will eliminate the bass sounds most commonly found with home entertainment and theater systems. Whisper clips cannot be short circuited, unlike resilient clips, ensuring maximum sound absorption at all times. Whisper clips does not require special drywall; regular off the shelf product and readily available hat channel are all you need. Whisper Clips work better and last longer. No need for double stud, staggered stud, or double wall assemblies.
Installation is simple and affordable. See Installation Guide or video tutorial to the right for more information.
How Many Do I Need?
You can space the clips at 48" apart and up to 24" between the channels. As a general rule, figure one Whisper Clip for every 5 square feet (20% of total square footage). However, since more clips are required for the ends of the walls / ceiling, we recommending purchasing at least 23% of total square footage (multiply the total square footage by .23) See Installation Tab to the right for a layout diagram.
Commercial Whisper Clips require a minimum purchase of 100 clips. Don't need so many? Consider our Standard Whisper Clips.
