Resilient Partition Isolation Pad

KINETICS™ Wallmat

Application

Kinetics Noise Controlís Model Wallmat resilient partition isolation pad offers designers a quick and easy solution for resiliently decoupling a sound-rated partition from non-isolated structure. Flanking of sound through a floor/ceiling assembly can reduce STC (airborne noise) or IIC (impact noise) ratings 10 points or more versus non-flanked sound control construction. Frequently used in conjunction with other Kinetics sound isolation products, Model Wallmat creates a resilient break to stop sound or vibration from flanking around a sound rated assembly. Neoprene bushing assemblies (Model KAI) used at each anchor point through the top and bottom plates of the stud wall ensure effective isolation. Apply Model Wallmat continuously along the bottom and top plates of a stud wall wherever acoustical isolation is required to maintain a fully effective sound rated assembly. For isolating masonry walls, see our higher load capacity Model NAFP-10.
