The KINETICS IsoMax Sound Isolation Clip

Kinetics IsoMax resilient sound isolation clips are an effective and easy to install solution for ceiling and wall soundproofing apparatus. When used with standard furring channel, IsoMax clips acoustically decouple drywall walls and ceilings from the building structure. IsoMax are appropriate for all standard clips and channel assemblies and provide excellent soundproofing properties.

IsoMax may be the easiest resilient sound isolation clip to install. Easy installations save time and money and headaches. In addition, IsoMax clips are designed to minimize the possibility of “short circuiting” the acoustic pathways during installation.

Decoupling walls from the building structure is the easiest way to reduce the propagation of low frequency sounds. That makes IsoMax clips excellent choices for residential applications, mixed use buildings, as well as home theater solutions.

KINETICS IsoMax Clips Specifications
 
KINETICS IsoMax resilient sound isolation clips offer significantly higher STC values than drywall attached to resilient channel. IsoMax clips are designed to ensure that installers will not inadvertently screw through the “resilient” leg of the channel into the joist or stud, rendering the resilient channel ineffective. IsoMax clips are the amongst the easiest clips to install and can reduce the cost of labor for installations.IsoMax Clips Specifications

KINETICS IsoMax Installation Guide

Wall Installation Guide
IsoMax Clips Wall Installation Guide
NOTES

• Use 25 gauge furring channel on walls.
• Furring channel is installed across studs horizontal to the floor.
• Use a 4 ft. level to ensure furring channel is installed level.
• Clips are spaced no further than 48 inches apart horizontally
• Hat channel must not be spaced more than 24 inches vertically
• Bottom clips must be less than 3 inches from the floor
• Top clips must be less than 6 inches from the ceiling
• Make sure to leave a 1/4 in. gap between wall and celling and wall and floor to fill with acoustical caulk.

STEP 1 - INSTALL THE CLIPS
Measure for placement of KINETICS IsoMax resilient sound isolation clips using layout guidelines listed in the Installation Notes above.
Mark locations and install clips using appropriate screws. To make installing channel easier, only affix the clip to the stud with the top screw.
Outermost clips must be spaced at every interval.

STEP 2 - INSTALL THE FURRING CHANNEL
Snap furring channel into clips.
Apply second screw to the bottom of the IsoMax clip.
Alternative Method: Before attaching the clips to the wall, snap clips onto the furring channel at approximate stud intervals. Place the channel across the studs making sure it is level. Slide clips to appropriate studs and fasten with appropriate fasteners.

STEP 3 - INSTALL THE DRYWALL
Place shims on the floor to allow spacing between the drywall and the flooring. This ensures decoupling from the floor to make it impossible for vibrations to travel from the wall to the floor and vice-verse.
Screw drywall in place through the furring channel. Be sure the
drywall is fully installed before removing shims from underneath.

STEP 4 - SEAL THE PERIMETER
Use acoustical sealant to fill the 1/4" gaps around the perimeter, and all gaps around electrical boxes, windows, and doors.

NOTES
• Use 20 gauge furring channel on ceilings.
• Furring channel is installed perpendicular to floor joists.
• Clips are spaced no further than 48 inches apart (every 3rd joist if joist are spaced 16 inches OC).
• Furring channel must not be spaced more than 24 inches apart.
• First and last row of clips are less than 6 inches from the wall.
• Make sure to leave a 1/4 in. gap around the perimeter of ceiling to fill with acoustical caulk.

STEP 1 - INSTALL THE CLIPS
Measure for placement of KINETICS™ IsoMax resilient sound isolation clips using layout guidelines listed in the Installation Notes above.
Mark locations and install clips using appropriate screws to fasten the clips to the floor joists.

STEP 2 - INSTALL THE FURRING CHANNEL
Snap furring channel into clips.
Alternative Method: Before attaching the clips to the wall, snap clips onto the furring channel at approximate stud intervals. Place the channel across the studs making sure it is level. Slide clips to appropriate studs and fasten with appropriate fasteners.

STEP 3 - INSTALL THE DRYWALL
Have one person lift and hold the drywall in place. Have a second installer screw the drywall directly into the hat channel using a power drill.
Leave a 1/4" gap around the perimeter of the ceiling. This ensures decoupling from the wall to make it impossible for vibrations to travel from wall to floor and vice-verse.

STEP 4 - SEAL THE PERIMETER
Use acoustical sealant to fill  the gaps around the perimeter of the ceiling, and around any lighting fixtures and vents.
