Sound Isolation Company and Studco Building Systems have introduced the Resilmount line of sound isolation clips. With many designs Resilmount can accommodate a variety of construction challenges.

Sound Isolation Company has Resilmount Clips available in our New York, Houston and Charlotte locations.
With a variety of models, Resilmount offers unique solutions to several soundproofing challenges. Decoupling double wall construction, dropping ceiling below conduits or minimizing the drop to 1/4", and isolating walls from masonry exteriors are just a few of the benefits when using Resilmount Clips. For truly isolated walls and ceilings, choose the appropriate Resilmount Clip to solve your soundproofing problem.
Additional Resilmount Clips
The Resilmount A96R are designed for use where an additional drop for HVAC, Plumbing, or Electrical Chases is needed while retaining the superior acoustical performance. This clip gives you the flexibility to drop a ceiling as much as 4" from its original height. The Resilmount A96R is also used to level out uneven floor joists. This clip has proven to be very popular with the Home Theater industry.
The Resilmount A48R are an engineered, acoustic resilient mounting bracket for reducing airborne vibration and structure-borne vibration in internal wall and ceiling applications. Use to brace an acoustic wall to the structure without compromising sound and vibration transmission requirements.
The Resilmount A24R are used as a resilient mounting bracket for reducing airborne vibration and structure-borne vibration in a double wall application where acoustical bridging is required. Using the Resilmount A24R bracket improves the strength and rigidity of chase walls, allowing both walls to support each other while remaining completely acoustically isolated.
As an economy option the Resilmount A237 can be used in walls and ceiling where a more reliable STC is needed to meet minimum code requirements. Many resilient channel installations are rendered ineffective due to mechanical fasteners being screwed directly into the framing members. Using Resilmount A237 and drywall furring channel makes this short circuit far less likely.
