IB-1 Soundproofing Clip


The IB-1 Sound Isolation Clip is an high performing decoupling value clip. IB-1 limits the connection points between the drywall and walls and ceilings framing.

Resilient IB-1 Sound Isolation Clip perform two main functions. First, because they are spaced in rows 24″ apart (generally), the drywall is attached with far fewer contact areas. Second, clips and hat track are resilient. They allow a wall to flex, and this increases sound isolation as well as lowering the troublesome primary low frequency resonance point.

This IB-1 Soundproofing Clip performs very similarly to other clips, but the low cost allows the contractor to instead invest in extra mass (drywall) and damping (Green Glue). The resulting system is far superior to using clips and drywall alone.

The IB-1 Clip can be used with wood or steel wall studs. Clips are particularly useful on open ceilings where there are neighbors overhead. Significant relief from neighbor noise can be obtained if we first start with clips to decouple the ceiling drywall.
