PRODUCT USE

The QuietBox is used to isolate IC rated recessed lighting for nearly every brand and style of housing. Each untreated recessed light in your ceiling will lower the performance of your assembly by 1-2 STC points, depending on the number of lights and size of ceiling. This reduction in performance is due to the loss in mass where the recessed light is installed in place of one or more layers of drywall on the rest of the ceiling. The concept of the QuietBox is to restore this lost mass created by the recessed light housing by fitting the entire housing within the QuietBox and sealing the QuietBox to the back of the finish layer of drywall. Normal drywall ceilings will have the QuietBox installed using a 2x framing member or similar while resilient ceilings will remain decoupled by attaching the QuietBox with the GenieClip LB clips. Installation of the QuietBox around your IC rated recessed light will restore the lost mass entirely allowing your ceiling to reach the full STC, OITC, and IIC rating.

The interior of the QuietBox is finished with 5/8" Type-X drywall and UL rated acoustical sealant. The QuietBox meets building code requirements for electrical fire code. The height of the QuietBox allows enough space above each of the compatible housings listed under the Compatibility tab.

COMPATIBILITY

Our QuietBox fits the majority of IC rated lights available from every recessed light manufacturer. Click on a manufacturer's name to view which of their housings are compatible with the QuietBox. This is not an exclusive list so there may be other housings from these manufacturers or other manufacturers that fit within the QuietBox.

INSTALLATION

IN RESILIENT CEILINGS

A resilient ceiling is a ceiling that has resilient clips or resilient channel installed. To maintain a resilient ceiling with the QuietBox installed, the GenieClip LB should be used. Each QuietBox requires two GenieClip LB installed on opposite corners of the QuietBox.

View QuietBox with GenieClip LB Install Guide

IN FIXED CEILINGS

If your drywall is fixed directly to the joists, then the QuietBox can be installed using a 2x framing member or similar.

View QuietBox with Framing Member Install Guide

CUSTOMIZING SIZE OF QUIETBOX

Our QuietBox may be too tall for the depth of your joists. To resolve this, you can turn the QuietBox on the side and run it through a table saw. Allow a 1/2” space above the recessed light for typical IC housing clearance.

PERFORMANCE

The QuietBox is sound tested to show zero loss in ceiling assembly performance when the QuietBox is installed over the recessed light housing. Average loss from untreated recessed light is 1-2 STC points depending on the number of lights and size of the ceiling. The final rating of the QuietBox will be equal to any ceiling assembly with triple layer drywall and a damping compound.
