Resilient Bar system for soundproofing walls

When constructing a stud wall for soundproofing a party wall or simply for separating rooms and the highest degree of soundproofing is required, it is advisable to decouple the plasterboard from the frame using a Resilient Bar system.  Resilient Bars are a flexibly link for fixing the plasterboard and the flexibility of the link absorbs much of the sound energy that would otherwise still penetrate the structure.  This method of decoupling will significantly improve the soundproofing of any wall.  The Resilient Bar system of soundproofing walls is easy to fit but care must be taken

When fixing the bars to the frame.  It is important that the bars are not fitted over the sole or top plates and that the fixing flange is on the underside of the bars.  If the fitting is not carried out correctly then the full soundproofing benefit will not be obtained.  Additionally, care must be taken when screwing the plasterboard to the bars to ensure the screws do not short circuit into the supporting frame.  For more information on our Resilient Bar decoupling system along with our other soundproofing products, go to our commercial web site
