Customers have been asking us for a long time for the option of a real Class A Fire Rated Mass Loaded Vinyl. While we have the ability to provide UL listed plain MLV they are still not Class A rated. Enter our new listing the Foil Faced one pound Mass Loaded Vinyl. A true Class A fire rated product with the same STC 26 rating as our standard MLV. Check it out and let us know what else we can bring in to our store to help our great customers.

Concrete Ceilings/Floors

Surprisingly to many people concrete is not soundproof (or at least not as soundproof as people believe it to be).

So you want to decouple the ceiling however just adding resilient sound clips with drywall is not enough as you will not have the basic component of insulation there. Therefore we suggest that you first fur out the ceiling to allow for at least 2 inches of mineral wool and then add your resilient sound clips to the furring strips. This will also make for a much easier installation of the clips rather than having to fasten them to concrete especially if you are using our highly recommended Whisper Clips that require two screws per clip.
