IB-1 Sound Isolation Clips - A favorite for Developers, Contractors, Architects, and anyone who needs effective economical decoupling for impact and airborne noise.
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
Drywall can be installed either horizontally or vertically on soundproofing clips.
Resilient IB-1 Sound Isolation Clips 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 the 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 similarly to other clips, but the low cost leaves more room to 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. These clips are particularly useful on open ceilings where there are neighbors overhead. Significant relief from neighbor noise can be obtained when we first start with clips to decouple the ceiling drywall.
NOTE: Use with 25 gauge 7/8" Drywall Furring Channel Only

Adding IB-1 Clips improve sound isolation by decoupling drywall from your room framing. Install Soundproofing Clips directly to ceiling or wall framing using standard screws . Snap 7/8″ Drywall Furring Channel into Soundproofing Clip to decrease the conduction contact area and increase the flexibility. Fasten standard drywall following local building codes. The combination of increased resilience and the mass from the drywall create a powerful ally against noise. See the official lab results below.

Noisy floors are a significant and growing issue as more people are opting for hard surface flooring. This creates distinct soundproofing challenges. We offer solutions tailored to your commercial or residential needs.
Impact noise coming through a ceiling is one of the worst soundproofing problems. A footfall imparts a violent level of energy into the ceiling. We offer ceiling solutions to quiet even the most problematic footfall noise.
Shared interior walls don't offer much in the way of sound isolation. There are good approaches and bad, and you only want to do this once. Our lab-certified wall solutions will help ensure you get it right the first time.
