Product Data

How it Works:

RSIC Clips are used in the process of decoupling walls and/or ceilings from the joists or studs, creating what is called a floating wall or ceiling. Decoupling the wall or ceiling helps create a soundproof environment in two ways, by breaking the path and creating resiliency.

In wall assemblies, the Clips are generally spaced every 48” OC, making the contact between the studs and boards minimal. 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).

Installation on Ceilings, Wood or Steel Framing:

Wood or Steel Framing Installation Diagram

Concrete Framing Installation Diagram

  • Fasten the Resilient Sound Isolation Clip (RSIC-DC04) to the structure members with approved fasteners.
  • Ensure the internal metal Ferrell is tight to the framing member.
  • Min. 12 Ga. annealed hanger wire tied through the existing 1/4” hole in the vertical leg of the RSIC-DC04 clip.
  • When using tie wire attached to the RSIC-DC04 clip to hang a dry-wall grid ceiling follow the installation instruction provided by the manufacturer of the grid ceiling system.

Important Notes:

  • Resilient Sound Isolation Clip (RSIC-DC04) ceiling system shall not carry heavy loads such as cabinets or bookshelves
  • Seal all potential air leaks with non-hardening acoustical caulking to achieve best noise control results. Use fire rated sealant where required.
  • When attaching the RSIC clips to a steel stud the minimum allow-able thickness of the steel stud is 20 Ga. (0.030”).

Customers Questions and Answers

1) Lawton: Hello, How do I determine if I need DC04 or DC04HD clips (or any of the other models)? This is for securing a new partition wall to existing ceiling joists. The wall will carry two layers of drywall. If the clips are spaced 48" oc, will the clips be strong enough to support the weight of the wall? Thanks!

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: Hi Lawton, The DC04 should work for that.
