GenieClip™ - Vibration Absorbing & Sound Isolation Clip
A reliable and affordable soundproofing solution!
The GenieClip™ is a resilient sound isolation clip built for exceptional acoustical performance. The GenieClip™ reduces the transmission of airborne and impact sound through wall and floor/ceiling assemblies.
GenieClip™ is a vibration absorbing and sound Isolation Clip. The GenieClip™ is an affordable & reliable sound solution used on both wood and steel wall stud and ceiling joist applications. Engineered for superior acoustical performance. The GenieClip™ significantly reduces the transmission of airborne and impact sound through wall and floor/ceiling assemblies. GenieClip™ is a unibodied molded rubber and galvanized steel part used to attach drywall to either wall or floor/ceiling assemblies. Made from recycled components, and engineered to allow a reduction in assembly weight, the GenieClip™ contributes to LEED certified building.
• Significantly improve low frequency sound control performance.
• Substantially improves impact noise and helps stop sound through walls and floor-ceiling construction.
• Substantially reduce costs and associated problems in wood truss floor/ceiling construction and still meet code for fire and sound control
• Fast and easy to install.
• No short-circuiting as is often the case with resilient channel .
Easy to Install:
The GenieClip™ is easy and fast to install using standard steel furring channel and held in place with a single fastener. The furring channel is simply snapped into the GenieClip™ and the drywall can be immediately installed.
Used in Ceilings:
The GenieClip™ in connection with an acoustic insulation like Roxuls Safe N Sound between the joists and a dampening material like Green Glue as well as Green Glue Noiseproofing Caulking, will create a superior acoustic break between the bottom of any floor joists and the drywall ceiling.
Used on Walls:
Vibration absorbing GenieClip™ are also recommended to upgrade the sound insulation of any wall; particularly effective at reducing loud music or bass noise penetrating the wall. Ideally, a new stud batten frame built spaced away from the current wall is recommended. This will create a sealed, insulated gap between the new wall and the existing one. Fill in between the studs with an acoustic insulation like Roxuls Safe N Sound. Care should be taken not to fit the acoustic insulation too tightly. A loose fit is better than a tight fit. The GenieClip™ are screwed to the stud frame from floor to ceiling using our self-drilling screws followed by one or two layers of drywall. For best results, add an additional layer of drywall with Green Glue damping compound and seal up all seams with Green Glue Noiseproofing Caulking.
