Sound Isolation Wall and Ceiling Clip

IsoMax - Patent No. 7,093,814

Low Cost, Space Saving Walls and Ceilings

Designers wanting low-cost, space-saving ceilings and walls that provide superior noise control employ KINETICS™ IsoMax sound isolation clips. Offering significantly higher STC values than drywall attached to resilient channel, IsoMax ensures that installers will not inadvertently screw through the “resilient” leg of the channel into the joist or stud. This feature cannot be underestimated given the frequent, unknown occurrences where resilient channel is accidentally rendered ineffective because it is hard-attached.
