These are challenging times and we would like to share our heartful support with you and your families.
As the UK government implement significant measures to control this virus, iKoustic are doing everything to comply with these instructions. I can assure you that we are operating in a safe and responsible manner, adhering to the guidance in full.
Our plan is to continue to offer a product advice and supply service for as long as we can. We appreciate your understanding if there are any delays to our normal service times.
Due to home working, we would encourage you to communicate through the Jivochat email link on the site. Supplying all contact details will speed this up further and enable us to get back to you in the order that your enquiries are received in and in the shortest time possible.
We will update you if this position changes.

MuteClip® (Patent Pending) LP (Low Profile) is our sound isolation clip that is unique in its design with its dual density rubber polymers, each carefully designed and assembled to improve noise reduction over a broad range of frequencies while remaining stable and consistent with every MuteClip® LP. The adopted low profile helps to reduce the loss of room height while maintaining the same performance as the standard MuteClip®, it is installed into the side of the joist so that it is only partially the depth of the MuteClip® Channel that protrudes. The MuteClip® LP systems look to minimise the points of contact with the joists while creating a system that is easy to install with little to no error due to the accomplished design. With these properties working in tandem, you will achieve excellent soundproofing against impact and airborne noise on a whole host of projects, all completed with swiftness and efficiency at an affordable price.
In scenarios where there is varying joist heights or two pre-existing rooms that have two different head heights, we would recommend the use of our MuteClip® XP (Extended Profile).
To achieve the best possible solution in soundproofing, you will need to incorporate them into acoustic systems, and it is under our 'Systems' tab above you will find MuteClip® in a range of options. These offer ways of increasing acoustic performance by fitting them to decoupled stud frames, internal stud frames to split multiple rooms, or when you need to be conservative with space - directly installing them to your brick/block wall or joist ceiling.
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.

*Our Typical Performance Results and Noise Reduction Guidance are provided to indicate the results that have been achieved in previous tests but are not guaranteed to a specific site as multiple factors can affect this, you can view their variants on our 'Featured Systems' tab.
We endeavour to display the most up to date testing and assist in managing your expectations through each stage of the process so that the choice we make is the right one.
We are always looking for the best ways to describe to you the world of soundproofing through introducing guides that range from the basic principles of sound, how to best soundproof surfaces and what to look for, and how to understand acoustic test data, to name a few! We want to help you come to the right decision, so whether this is through the use of our guides or talking to a member of our team, we are here to help!
A combination of the following will always result in the best acoustic performance possible.
MuteClip® LP is the principal component of all MuteClip® LP Systems and is what provides separation by decoupling from timber joists to both metal and timber frames. It breaks contact with these building elements and creates an air gap, each MuteClip® LP system gives a significant improvement over directly fitted systems, for example, fitting acoustic plasterboard to the surface. When low-frequency airborne noise and impact noise is present, it is necessary to decouple from the structure so that the vibrations have a greater variety of materials for the soundwaves to travel through. Since our MuteClip® LP solutions are designed for different purposes, each will be tailored to the level of noise you are receiving or expecting from adjacent rooms, and to what level you want to reduce them. Mass and Damping properties are dealt with in the 'barrier' of each system. Our 'Double Plus' solutions feature the dense SoundPlank 19mm, Tecsound (a damping membrane) and Acoustic Plasterboard 15mm, and by sandwiching Tecsound between the layers, a damping effect is provided between them - increasing performance.
We understand that it is not always possible to incorporate significant losses of space with say, the introduction of a stud frame, so we provide many options that can be applied directly to partitions, to help suit your desired performance, cost and thickness.

With a ceiling configuration, we would recommend removal of the existing ceiling for a secure fit into the side of the joists.

This product is part of the following systems:
MuteClip® LP is our 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, and this makes it a perfect option for sound proofing rooms with 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.
You cannot install MuteClip® LP on to walls, nor any stud wall framework as the MuteClip® Channel would need to be vertically installed which would lead to a slight drift towards to floor increasing the level of contact and reducing the effectiveness of the sound proofing - it must only be used as a ceiling soundproofing option. If you are looking for our wall soundproofing MuteClip®, click here.
16kg per MuteClip® LP is the maximum load you can apply to each clip, and 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 its soundproofing 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 reliable 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, the 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. There is no compromise in performance or additional performance with the use of the Low Profile compared to the standard MuteClip®, and its use is for concerns of loss of head height in each room.
Each colour represents a different density, and these react differently 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 significant 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, and you will need to source these 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 are dependent on frequency and or value of orders alongside our service and guidance for 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.
