FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions
Sound isolation clips, also known as resilient mounts, are used as a way of disconnecting the wall system in acoustic wall and ceiling assemblies, for buildings or rooms that require a high level of noise reduction or soundproofing.
Using sound isolation clips significantly reduces noise transfer, as the clip is fixed between the steel stud and furring channel, to attenuate the sound between rooms or floors.
Resilmount sound isolation clips are used in order to decouple a wall or ceiling system. They can be used in conjunction with other sound proofing techniques.
The difference between a soundproofed assembly versus a non-soundproofed assembly entirely depends on the assembly. A typical standard 2x4 wood stud assembly with one layer of 5/8” drywall either side will receive around 34-36 STC, should you install Resilmount clips in the same assembly you will receive 54 STC. Giving you an average increase in 20 STC points.

Resilmount sound isolation clips are manufactured from 18ga steel and molded thermoplastic Santoprene rubber.
The thermoplastic rubber outperforms standard rubber because of its unique natural absorbing characteristics and its ability last longer than any form of natural rubber.

Certainly! Our Resilmount clips can be used with most all framing components. Be sure that you are using a 25ga furring channel with a minimum width of 2 ½” and a max of 2 5/8” from flange to flange.
Resilmount Sound isolation clips are engineered to decouple the drywall (mass) in an assembly from the structure. This means that there is no direct transfer of sound vibrations from the drywall through the structure to the neighboring room or story.

Often times to achieve different ratings in soundproofing it helps to apply different methods. There are a multitude of products that can be used in conjunction with Resilmount Sound isolation clips to help with soundproofing. The most prevalent is adding extra layers of drywall to increase mass, this can be simply achieved by adding further layers of drywall.

When spacing the A237R clips at 24x48 inches OC, divide the total square footage by 4.5. In a 1000sf room this would give us roughly 222 A237Rs. Do keep in mind that this is only a close average to give an idea for what is needed for the project.
