MuteClip™ (Patent Pending) XP (Extended 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™ XP. The extended profile helps to accomodate 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 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 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 a reduced head height.
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™ XP 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™ 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 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 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™ XP, and with any other soundproofing clip too, reducing it’s soundproofing effectiveness.
MuteClip™ XP can accommodate 100mm of difference of 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 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 the acoustic performance is adjacent cavities or stud framing lacking noise insulation, sound can travel into these areas and weaken the overall sound proofing performance through 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, these react different 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, 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™ XP, do get in contact with us to see how we can help you best.
