How Many To Order:

Clips can be spaced up to 48" apart with spacing of up to 24" between channels.  When using this spacing, divide the square footage of the area to be treated by 5.  That will give a rough estimate of the amount of clips needed.  In most cases you will need to compensate for being within 6" to walls/ceilings so we have found that calculating the square footage by 23% should get you close to the amount of clips needed.  See Installation Tab above for layout diagram.

General Guidelines 

  • A96R to be fastened to structure with a minimum #8 screw or masonry sleeve anchors.  (See fasteners manufacturers specifications)
  • Load capacity: 55 lbs. maximum dead load.
  • Maximum spacing of clips on furring channel is 48"
  • Spacing between furring channels should not exceed 24"
  • Ensure that a 1/4" gap is left around the perimeter of the ceiling to fill with acoustical caulk. 

Installation Guidelines 

  • Use a 4 ft. level when installing furring channel to ensure that it is installed level.
  • .25 gauge furring channel should be used on ceilings.
  • When using A96R clips, furring channel is installed parallel to ceiling joists. 
  • If "recessing" the clips to minimize lost ceiling space, affix mounting blocks, to the floor joists and install clips to the mounting blocks.

Installing Clips

  • Measure placement for the clips using our layout guidelines listed above.  Mark the location for each clip then install clips using appropriate screws.  If desired, use mounting blocks to recess the clips.  Mounting blocks should be about 6" long with the A96R clip placed in the center of the mounting block. Outermost clips must be spaced at every interval.
  • Snap furring channel into the clips.
  • Have someone hold the drywall in place while screwing the drywall directly into the furring channel using a drill.  Screws should not enter any floor joists.  Leave a 1/4" gap around the perimeter of the ceiling.  This ensures decoupling from the wall making it impossible for vibrations to travel through surfaces.
  • Use acoustical sealant to fill the gaps around the perimeter of the ceiling and around any lighting fixtures and vents.

Comments about Resilmount A96R Clip With Additional Drop :
These clips work pretty well for helping to attenuate sound waves by making a good break between the ceiling joists and the drywall. In addition, they make it pretty easy to level the ceiling and make it flat. The center channels allow positioning the clips close, and then you can slide them up or down as needed. Once they are positioned, you can use the upper or lower mounting holes to lick the clip in place.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
