PRODUCT USE

GenieMat® FIS acoustic isolation pad is used as a permanently resilient gasket for reducing sound and vibration transfer through top and bottom plate framing. GenieMat® FIS can be used with wood or steel framing over concrete or wood sub-floor. Unlike similar fiberglass based products, the rubber used in the GenieMat® FIS is unaffected by water and will not support mold growth. The use of GenieMat® FIS above and below the plates will ensure the isolation products installed in the wall (resilient clips, Green Glue Compound, etc.) will reach their maximum performance potential. GenieMat® FIS is sized to fit 2x4 framing, but can be used with 2x6 bottom plates.

ESTIMATING

Each roll of GenieMat® FIS will cover 30 linear feet of framing. We recommend the use of the GenieMat® FIS Bushings when the bottom or top plate is fastened with screws. Each fastening screw will require 1 GenieMat® FIS Bushing, typically spaced 16" to 24" apart.

INSTALLATION

  1. Roll out the GenieMat® FIS to the length of the bottom or top plate and cut to fit with a razor knife.
  2. Place the GenieMat® FIS where the plate framing will be installed and place the plate over the GenieMat® FIS.
  3. If the GenieMat® FIS Bushing is used, then drill a hole up to 3/4" in diameter every 16" to 24" through the plate without penetrating the sub-floor. It is okay to penetrate the rubber.
  4. Fasten the plate to the framing with the GenieMat® FIS between the framing. The GenieMat® FIS Bushing will break the connection between the plate and the head of the screw.

GenieMat® FIS can be installed with screws or a polyurethane based adhesive. Refer to the drawing in the thumbnail above for a more detailed spec.
