MuteClip® (Patent Pending) XP (Extended Profile) is our acoustic 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® XP. The extended profile helps to accommodate varying joist depths whilst maintaining the same performance as the standard MuteClip®, it is is installed up onto the required depths on the inside of the joist, creating an efficient and streamlined way to ensure a suited levelling of the ceiling instead of building a new framework or resulting to ad-hoc methods of installation. The MuteClip® XP systems look to minimise the points of contact with the joists while creating an easy to install a system 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 space is at a premium and that your joists are level, we would recommend the use of our MuteClip® LP (Low Profile) or standard MuteClip®, if there is no requirement for reduced head height.

 

  • Dual density rubber acoustic clip.
  • Extended profile design to accommodate varying room and joist heights.
  • Dramatically reduces airborne and impact noise as a high performing, slimline acoustic system.
  • Can be used on metal, wooden, brick and concrete structures.
  • Reduced points of contact to help de-couple ceiling systems.
  • Significantly improves sounds control in both high and low frequencies.
  • A significant improvement over standard resilient bars in both performance and fitting (you can view our blog in resilient channels by clicking here).
  • Compliant with both Part E Building Regulations (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland) and Building Standards Technical Handbook 2017 for Scotland for impact transmission.

 

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® XP is part of iKoustic's MuteRange core - these are products that are 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.

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!

 

How to soundproof ceilings

A combination of the following will always result in the best acoustic performance possible.
 

  • Mass: the addition of more substantial materials to reduce sound energy, for example, added layers of acoustic barrier combined with soundproof plasterboard.
  • Separation: breaking contact with the surface or surfaces through the use of acoustic isolation clips or stud framing.
  • Damping: the reduction of vibration through the use of flexible, damping materials such as Tecsound.
     

MuteClip® XP is the principal component of all MuteClip® XP 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® XP 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® XP 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.

MuteClip® XP Ceiling Installation

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

*Standard joist centres of 0.4 centres

MuteClip® XP is designed with an extended profile (XP), and this allows each clip to be installed on the side of the joist so that the MuteClip® Channel now runs inside the joist at variable heights to maintain a level ceiling where variable heights can be problematic - this makes it perfect for sound proofing rooms with a varying ceiling heights. This system is ideal for home soundproofing where impact and airborne noise from above is intrusive, as well as using it as an acoustic solution for recording studios, cinema rooms and other environments that generate noise in excess. You can find all systems MuteClip® XP is featured in by clicking on the systems tab next to the FAQs here.

MuteClip® XP cannot be installed on any wall construction as the bracket would be larger than most stud frame walls and would often be beneficial for creating a stud framework and using our standard MuteClip®.

16kg per MuteClip® XP 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® XP, and with any other soundproofing clip too, reducing its soundproofing effectiveness.

MuteClip® XP can accommodate 100mm of a difference in ceiling height. The MuteClip® Channel needs to run straight through without any bending or fluctuation in heights if there are this could cause acoustic plasterboard to butt up uneven with one another.

This all depends on which system the MuteClip® XP 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 the acoustic performance is adjacent cavities or stud framing lacking noise insulation, and sound can travel into these areas and weaken the overall sound proofing performance through the way of flanking transmission. We offer estimations of soundproofing performance in our acoustic results, but it is important to note that every property will behave differently.

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.

Fixings are not provided with Mute Clip® XP, and these 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, but if if you have placed orders with us or have a few projects looking to specify MuteClip® XP, do get in contact with us to see how we can help you best.
