Hear the difference.

Play the video to hear the sound difference before and after installing this system. For best results try to match the volume of the unreduced audio to the volume of the noise you’re able to hear.

The noise in the video has been digitally reduced to give you an idea of the sorts of results you could expect. Unfortunately, this is not a perfect science and your personal results could vary due to myriad reasons. However, we have found our customers prefer to hear a decibel reduction rather than read it!

We stand for quality, and we are proud of it.

MuteClip® Stud Double is our most advanced brick wall soundproofing system. The finished system can reduce airborne sound by an incredible 69dB, a huge difference.

An isolated stud frame already adds a great reduction but when coupled with a MuteClip frame it performs even better. It creates a double level of isolation from your existing partition wall using our MuteClip® which is composed of a dual-density rubber in a galvanised metal case, acting as a mini shock absorber.

The MuteClip® Channel affixes to the MuteClip®, and the new soundproof wall which is composed of two layers of dense Acoustic Plasterboard 15mm and Tecsound suspended away from the partition wall, ultimately resulting in an improved reduction of airborne noise.

How to soundproof a brick wall

Brick walls already have quite good soundproof qualities so to improve that we need to employ some science and engineering magic. Instead of solely adding mass, the MuteClip Stud Double creates two structures decoupled from the original brick wall.

First, a stud frame is built and only connected to the flanking walls, floor and ceiling not the problem wall. This helps prevent the original wall from transferring noise vibrations to our new wall.

The stud wall is then filled with sound-absorbing acoustic mineral wool. We then attach our sound isolation clips (MuteClip) to the joists of the stud frame. These act as mini shock absorbers to further reduce the noise vibrations. From here you can clip our MuteClip channels into the MuteClips to create a frame to which you can attach two layers of acoustic plasterboard. Between these two layers, we install sound-dampening Tecsound. Once complete this creates an incredible reduction in decibel level.

Soundproofing a brick party wall

Unfortunately, we frequently encounter customers who are at their wits’ end because of noisy neighbours. This obtrusive noise may stress a person out or just make them uncomfortable. A MuteClip system can lower this noise to a level that you can forget about when it comes to soundproofing your walls against noisy neighbours!
iKoustic will be ready to provide all the assistance you need to create the system that works for you once you’re ready to put an end to disruptive noise and soundproof your walls against noisy neighbours.

Wall Stud Center

The wall stud center is the distance between stud uprights. The typical stud upright is 600mm. If you are working directly on a brick wall we recommend using a 600mm spacing here also.

Wall Channel Center

The wall channel center is the distance between the horizontal MuteClip Channels. The typical channel center is 600mm. If you are working directly on a brick wall we recommend using a 600mm spacing here also.

  • If you have multiple adjacent surfaces or partitions to soundproof input them individually. Not as a total m2 input as this will affect the results.
  • If you have windows, fireplaces or other fixed structures we recommend booking a call with us before purchasing.


A soundproofing system isn’t rocket science but sometimes figuring out which one is right for you can be challenging. Check out our FAQs, get in touch via our live chat, or give us a call to speak to a human.

As our most commonly selected and popular system for its compact size and acoustic performance, MuteClip® Double provides the best of both worlds. This system does not encroach on living space when looking at wall soundproofing options for the home. It will help to reduce common household noise from your neighbour’s conversations found in the background and at raised noise levels, light television usage and even reduction of light vibration from light switches and boiler rooms. With an existing single-course brick wall, we expect to see a reduction of approximately 8-15dB or 40-67% as a guide; this will not take into consideration flanking transmission or sounds coming from an unknown location.

Yes, the installation of Mute Clip™ and our channel system can only be installed one way, with one screw per clip, with the channel snapped in. It lends itself to speed of fixing without the fear of over tightening and bending the resilient bar or fixing upside down, which we have seen in some cases. Its acoustic performance is also improved through the use of a dual density rubber composition and lesser fixings.

MuteClip® and channel creates a 41mm void between acoustic plasterboard and the structural wall, so a 25mm or 30mm acoustic mineral wool is best placed here to allow an air gap to be created. Do not attempt to compress a thicker size in, this will negatively impact the system by short-circuiting the acoustic clip and bar.

Flanking transmission can cause vibration to travel between tightly joined hard surfaces, which can have a significant impact on any system’s acoustic performance. Always allow a space between the nearby walls, floor, and ceiling, and line it with acoustic sealant as closely as you can without touching.

Most homeowners tell us that the sounds can be heard from anywhere because there are small routes that allow the sound to freely move. There is a misconception that dot and dab improves acoustics where this is not the case.
Wherever possible, they ought to be taken out or at the very least cut into so that the new wall soundproofing system can be installed close to the actual structural wall.

Competent DIY’ers have installed our systems thousands of times. If you have good DIY know-how and read our installation guide carefully you should have no problem.

If DIY isn’t for you we have a network of independent soundproofing installers up and down the country that we can recommend to you.
