What is a sound isolation clip?
Sound isolation clips, also known as resilient mounts, are used as a way of disconnecting the wall system in acoustic wall and ceiling assemblies, for buildings or rooms that require a high level of noise reduction or soundproofing.
Using sound isolation clips significantly reduces noise transfer, as the clip is fixed between the steel stud and furring channel, to attenuate the sound between rooms or floors.
What are Resilmount sound isolation clips made from?
Resilmount sound isolation clips are manufactured from 18ga steel and molded thermoplastic Santoprene rubber.
The thermoplastic rubber outperforms standard rubber because of its unique natural absorbing characteristics and its ability last longer than any form of natural rubber.

How do Resilmounts help with soundproofing a room?
Resilmount sound isolation clips are used in order to decouple a wall or ceiling system. They can be used in conjunction with other sound proofing techniques.
How do Resilmount products work?
Resilmount Sound isolation clips are engineered to decouple the drywall (mass) in an assembly from the structure. This means that there is no direct transfer of sound vibrations from the drywall through the structure to the neighboring room or story. For more information visit our ‘How does soundproofing work?’ article.
How much sound is prevented from the installation of Resilmount sound isolation clips?
The difference between a soundproofed assembly versus a non-soundproofed assembly entirely depends on the assembly. A typical standard 2×4 wood stud assembly with one layer of 5/8” drywall either side will receive around 34-36 STC, should you install Resilmount clips in the same assembly you will receive 54 STC. Giving you an average increase in 20 STC points.

The most prevalent is adding extra layers of drywall to increase mass, this can be simply achieved by adding further layers of drywall.
How do I know the quantity of Resilmount A237R clips I will need for my project?
When spacing the A237R clips at 24×48 inches OC, divide the total square footage by 4.5. In a 1000sf room this would give us roughly 222 A237Rs. Do keep in mind that this is only a close average to give an idea for what is needed for the project.
