RSIC-1 Clips and channels are used in the process of decoupling walls and/or ceilings from the joists, creating what is referred to as a floating wall or ceiling. The advantages are twofold, first of all there’s no direct connection for sound to go back and forth by way of the joists as the wall/ceiling is disconnected. Secondly the wall and ceiling are given resiliency (flex) thus greatly reducing vibration (very similar to shock springs on a car). The RSIC-1TM is designed to be used with more than a few framing designs and applications. The RSIC-1TM decouples the Gypsum Board from the framing in wall and floor ceiling assemblies. The RSIC-1 has been acoustically tested, and adds 15 to 20 STC an IIC pts on your existing assemblies. Reducing the noise transfer by 75 to 100%.
