Sealtight Putty Pads are designed and used for both soundproofing and fire protection. By molding to the back of any electrical box sound will be unable to pass through the lightweight box, and protection from sparks and electrical fires will be improved. Putty Pads are available in 7″ x 7″ squares to fit any standard two plug box (single gang).
Install Sealtight Putty Pads after the gypsum board is applied to one side of the wall and before it is closed in on the other side. Installing the Putty Pad after one side of the wall is covered with drywall requires some technique. The pad must be applied to the box and then either lapped over the front of the tile plate (if one is used) or excess material must be worked toward the front of the box and built up into a compressible gasket much like the pinched area of a pie crust. This gasket compresses between the front edge of the box and the gypsum board as it is installed.
