PRODUCT USE

View our Product FAQ for answers to common questions about resilient sound clips.

Decoupling is the most efficient means to isolate sound in walls and ceilings. With a quality resilient clip, a high level of isolation for airborne, structure-borne, and impact footfall noise is possible. The extensive and successful testing of the GenieClip™ RST in walls and ceilings for STC, OITC, IIC, and UL fire ratings leads us to recommend the GenieClip™ RST as the best standard resilient clip for any project.

CEILINGS

The GenieClip™ C3 is engineered for use when the acoustical isolation systems must be installed below cold rolled channel. Engineered for superior acoustical performance in reducing the transmission of airborne and impact sound through wall and floor/ceiling assemblies.

The GenieClip™ C3 is a unibody molded rubber and steel bracket with custom formed wire suspension clip used when superior sound control is required in the floor/ceiling assemblies of multifamily housing, high-rises, or commercial buildings.

WALLS

The GenieClip™ C3 is not designed for use in walls.

Maximize the performance of the GenieClip™ C3 system by adding resilience to the floor above. We recommend the use of GenieMat™ RST02 for a low cost high performance underlayment. This will increase the IIC rating by at least 6 IIC points and the STC rating by at least 2-3 points.

ESTIMATING

The number of resilient clips required will depend on the weight of the assembly. A clip system can hold several layers of drywall, but the acoustic load of each clip should not be exceeded. For more accurate estimating, we recommend our resilient sound clip calculator. The calculator estimates based on the dimensions of each wall or ceiling partition.

Quick Math For Estimating Resilient Clips and Hat Channel
1 or 2 drywall layers, 48" x 24" spacing Divide total square footage by 5
3 drywall layers, 48" x 16" spacing Divide total square footage by 4
Hat Channel, rows 24" apart Multiply total square footage by .6 for total linear footage
Hat Channel, rows 16" apart Multiply total square footage by .7 for total linear footage
