How It Works:
Sound Isolation Hangers are designed to support internal suspended ceiling grid systems while providing optimal acoustic isolation. Noise and vibrations tend to be transmitted and amplified in drop or hung ceiling applications. By using Isolation Hangers made with resilient rubber at regular intervals along the suspension system, sound waves are broken in their paths. Rubber mounts differ from spring mounts since the natural frequency that results in its use is a function not only of the deflection but also of the rubber hardness.
Hangers can be spaced up to 4 feet between each hanger (16 sf per clip).
Sound Isolation Hangers are designed to work with all hanger wire. They can be installed into new or existing ceiling systems. There are three product options with unique color coding to specify the load capacity of the hanger to maximize the performance of the ceiling system. A50R-1 is red with a load capacity of 65 Lbs, A50R-2 is black with a load capacity of 120 Lbs, A50R-3 is blue with a load capacity of 200 Lbs. Noise absorption properties allow it to deflect 3/16" in accordance with US Standards, when properly installed, providing optimal isolation of tranferred noise.
Which weight should you use? In order to maximise the resilience of the clips you do not want to use a heavier weight clip with a light load. In example a 5/8 drywall sheet weighs 2.5 pounds per sf so hanging one layer of drywall would equal 40 pounds on the clip prompting you to use the A50R-1 hanging 2 layers would be 80 pounds per clip prompting you to use the A50R-2. This would be calculted by using 16 sf per clip , if you would be spacing them further or closer apart you would use the appropiate calculation for that.
- Isolates the ceiling system from the structure to reduce structure-borne noise
- Easy installation into new or existing ceiling systems.
- Made from Natural Rubber
- Works with all hanger wire
- Meets all standards and guidelines
- Does not reduce the load capacity of the ceiling system.
- Three variants available with load capacities of 65 lbs., 120 lbs. and 200 lbs.
