MuteClip™ (Patent Pending) LP (Low Profile) is unique in its design with it’s dual density rubber polymers that have been carefully designed and assembled to improve noise reduction over a broad range of frequencies whilst remaining stable and consistent with each and every MuteClip™ LP. The adopted low profile helps to reduce the loss of room height whilst maintaining the same performance as the standard MuteClip™ , it is is installed up into the joist so that it is only partially the depth of the MuteClip™ Channel that protrudes from the joist. The MuteClip™ LP systems look to minimize the points of contact with the joists whilst creating an easy to install system with little to no error due to the accomplished design. With these properties working in tandem, you will achieve optimum soundproofing against impact and airborne noise in a whole host of applications, all completed with swiftness and efficiency at an affordable price.
In scenarios where there are varying joist depths, or two pre existing rooms that have two different head heights, we would recommend the use of our MuteClip™ XP (Extended Profile).
You will find our entire range of systems on the Systems tab at the top of this section with an abundance of practical and technical information of each.
MuteClip™ LP is part of iKoustic's MuteRange core - these are products that been subjected to stringent testing in both laboratory and real world environments providing the best possible solution for the purpose with a result you can trust.

When considering Ceiling Soundproofing there are a few basic principles you need to be aware of when looking to achieve the best possible result. Initially you will need to increase the mass of the partition to begin noticing a reduction in airborne noise, but to yield the best reduction for high levels of airborne noise, as well as impact noise, you will want to consider creating seperatation from the structure to by implementing our MuteClip™ XP and Channel System direct to stud or brick and block walls. You can improve this further by applying it to a completely separate stud frame.
If you are uncertain of what to look for when soundproofing a ceiling, you can read our informal guide, A Guide to Soundproofing a Ceiling by clicking on the icon below.
With a ceiling configuration, we would recommend removal of existing ceiling for a secure fit into the side of the joists.

This product is part of the following systems:
MuteClip™ LP is designed as a low profile (LP) option that allows each clip to be installed on a ceiling to the side of the joist so that the MuteClip™ Channel will run on the inside and parallel to the joist - making it perfect for sound proofing rooms with a limited ceiling height. It is applicable for home sound proofing where impact and airborne noise from noisy neighbours above is intrusive, as well as soundproofing recording studios, cinema rooms and other environments that generate excessive noise. You can find all systems MuteClip™ LP is featured in by clicking on the systems tab next to the FAQs here.
MuteClip™ LP cannot be installed on to walls nor any stud wall framework as the MuteClip™ Channel would need to be placed vertically which could lead to a slight drift towards to floor increasing the level of contact and reducing the effectiveness of the sound proofing - it should only be used as a ceiling soundproofing option.

16kg per MuteClip™ LP is the maximum load that can be applied to each clip, our team can help to advise you on the weights. We aim to be no more than 75% capacity of the clip as hitting the maximum reduces the suspension of the MuteClip™ LP, and with any other noise insulation clip too, reducing it’s sound proofing effectiveness.
This all depends on which system the MuteClip™ LP is incorporated in to and what is currently in place, for example a concrete ceiling will offer a solid support for sound proofing against airborne noise but will present issues with impact noise, whereas a joist ceiling will perform differently and would require acoustic mineral wool between joists. Other notable areas that can also affect acoustic performance is any adjacent cavities or stud framing lacking sound insulation, noise will always move to the next weakest area and can travel into these areas by way of flanking transmission. We offer estimations of acoustic performance in our acoustic results, but it is important to note that every property will behave differently. You can find all systems MuteClip™ LP is featured in by clicking on the systems tab next to the FAQs here. There is no compromise in performance or additional performance with use of the Low Profile compared to the standard MuteClip™, it’s use is for concerns of loss of head height in each room.
Each colour represents a different density, these react different to vibration and intensity of sound which helps to cover a broader range of frequencies in sound proofing.
MuteClip™ LP requires more fixing points than the standard MuteClip™ because of the way it is designed and how it suspends its weight on the bracket, the levelling process requires a little more experience in DIY and dry lining, and previous use with drills and a little knowledge of installing materials on to ceilings (so that no servicing or plumbing is fixed in to), when it comes to the acoustic plasterboard stage in systems, again, some experience in dry-lining will go a long way to ensure large gaps and incorrect cutting are minimised as these can affect the result of the sound proofing. Two or more people are required due to the high mass of materials.
Fixings are not provided with Mute Clip™ LP, these will need to be sourced from a local fixings merchant - you can find out more about installation and guidance of fixings in the Related PDF tab.
We offer a range of trade discounts that is dependent on frequency and or value of orders alongside our service and guidance for each and every project. We ask that a few orders are placed prior, if you have placed orders with us or have a few projects looking to specify MuteClip™ LP, do get in contact with us to see how we can help you best.
