MuteClip™ is a sound isolation clip that significantly reduces airborne and impact transmission through structures when used in our MuteClip™ and Channel systems.


MuteClip™ (Patent Pending) 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™. With only a single fixing required, the system looks to minimize the points of contact with the partition and create 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.

To where space is at a premium, MuteClip™ can be applied directly to brick/block walls and concrete/joist ceilings - still giving you the best acoustic performance possible with a slimline solution. 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 on each.

 

 

 

MuteClip™ is part of iKoustic's MuteRange core - these are products that have 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.

How to Soundproof a Ceiling and How to Soundproof a Wall

 

When considering Wall and 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™ 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 wall or ceiling, you can read our informal guides - A Guide to Soundproofing a Wall or A Guide to Soundproofing a Ceiling by clicking on the icons below.

 

Guides to Soundproofing Walls and Ceilings

 

 

MuteClip™ Information

 

  • Dual density rubber isolator.
  • Dramatically reduces airborne and impact noise as a high performing, slimline acoustic system.
  • Only one fixing per MuteClip™ allows for easy installation.
  • Can be used on metal, wooden, brick and concrete structures.
  • Reduced points of contact to help de-couple ceiling and wall systems.
  • Significantly improves sounds control in both high and low frequencies
  • 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 Republic of Ireland) and Building Standards Technical Handbook 2017 for Scotland for impact transmission.

 

MuteClip™ Wall Installation

The MuteClip™ and Channel System can be applied in two methods depending on the level of reduction you are looking to achieve;

  • Direct to Brick/Block wall (80mm loss of space)
  • Timber/Metal Framework, we would recommend timber wherever possible to reduce any resonances within the metal work (150 - 200mm loss of space dependent on stud depth)

Our MuteClip™ is designed to be installed in almost any internal application to soundproof walls and ceilings, used to soundproof existing stud partitions or in brick and block constructions against noisy neighbours, against disruptive noise in the workplace and can also be installed as a highly effective sound proofing solution for home cinemas, recording studios and other audio focused environments where levels of noise can be found in excess of ordinary household disturbances. It is an affordable option for large residential or commercial projects that opt for or require a robust acoustic solution in where developers wish to exceed standard building regulations that lead to an increased comfort of living or workspace environment. You can find all systems MuteClip™ is featured in by clicking on the systems tab next to the FAQs here.

Yes it can, with existing stud partitions you will likely find a lightweight material, often a pink-fluffy heat insulation material, between the stud framing with perhaps only a standard plasterboard applied to each side, which is why you may be hearing excessive noise - these can also be found not only in internal dwellings of your own home or property, but also in neighbouring dwellings that were constructed before the introduction of Building Regulations in 2003, this can be intrusive and disruptive to living spaces. Without a brick or block wall creating the initial high mass, which is important for soundproofing against airborne noise issues, conversation and television for example, our MuteClip™ offers a high acoustic performance in these cases. You can find all systems MuteClip™ is featured in by clicking on the systems tab next to the FAQs here.

16kg per MuteClip™ is the maximum load that can be applied to each clip, our team can help to advise you on the weights on a square meter basis which takes in to account all elements of each system. We aim to be no more than 75% capacity of the clip as hitting the maximum reduces the suspension of the MuteClip, this is true for all other acoustic clips too, reducing it’s soundproofing effectiveness.

It all depends on which of our systems MuteClip™ is incorporated in to and what is currently in place, for example a concrete or brick wall will offer a solid support for soundproofing whereas breezeblock is often very porous, meaning that it allows an increased degree of airflow through, allowing the property to breathe. Stud framing offers the least sound proofing but creates an air gap which works in favour of each soundproof system and would require an acoustic mineral wool to be put in place to offer this improvement. We provide estimations of performance in our acoustic results, but it is important to note that every property will behave differently - we are always updating our acoustic results where possible. You can find all systems MuteClip™ is featured in by clicking on the systems tab next to the FAQs here.

Each colour represents a different density, these react each in their own way to vibration and different intensities of sound, helping to cover a broader range of frequencies to further it’s sound proof qualities.

MuteClip™ is designed so that only one fixing is required per clip, this improves the rate of installation, limits the amount of contact with the surface it is attached to (which is important in sound proofing) and makes it easy to install when it comes to applying the MuteClip Channel, which is simply snapped in and very easy to level. We do recommend you have a little DIY experience, previous use with drills and a little knowledge of installing in to brick and block walls (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 included as there are a range of substrates in various conditions that are often fixed in to, we would recommend seeking advice from a fixings merchant and advice from a structural engineer on walls that have been subjected to damp, mould or have aged, we do have guidance in our installation sheets which can be found 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™, do get in contact with us to see how we can help you best.
