SOUND ISOLATION

SOUND ISOLATION

Resilmounts sound isolation systems cover a wide range of effective solutions for isolating noise transfer for the wall and ceiling industry.

There are two types of noise transfer through walls and ceilings, airborne transfer, and structure borne transfer. Both types need to be considered to achieve the most effective result.

AIRBORNE NOISE

Airborne noise is noise that travels through air, through a direct or open path between the noise source and the recipient. Airborne noise requires sound insulation and isolation control.

STRUCTURE-BORNE NOISE

Structure-borne noise is audible noise which is generated by vibrations induced into the structure. Vibrations can be generated by machinery attached directly to a surface, that in turn transfers into the structure. Another example is the sound of the footsteps on the floor above a listener. Structure-borne noise requires the isolation of the vibration itself.

The installation of Resilmounts which suit standard furring channels and top cross rails are one of the most cost effective acoustic control systems as they isolate the system from the structure or adjoining parties.

Resilmounts unique thermoplastic rubber outperforms standard rubber because of its absorbing characteristics. Resilmounts unique sound cell design guards against structure borne vibrations transferring into the body of the Resilmount because of its strong column design providing a small percentage of contact surface area with the structure or substrate it is fixed to.
