WALLS: One and Two Layers of 5/8" Gypsum Board

  • Resilient Sound Isolation Clips (RSIC-1) shall be 48 inches maximum on center (horizontal).
  • Fasten the Resilient Sound Isolation Clip (RSIC-1) to the substrate with a fastener approved for a minimum pull-out and sheer of 120 lbs.
  • Ensure the internal metal ferrule is tight to the substrate. • Locate the first row of RSIC-1 clips within 3 inches from the floor and within 6 inches from the ceiling.
  • Snap in the drywall furring channel (hat track) into the RSIC-1 clips (horizontal for walls). (see page 2 for splice details)
  • Place 1/4" (minimum) shim on floor to fully support the gypsum board.
  • Install the gypsum board from the bottom up leaving a 1/4" min. gap around the perimeter of the wall.
  • ONLY remove the shims after ALL the gypsum board is completely screwed to ALL the drywall furring channels. Make sure every screw (floor to ceiling and wall to wall) is installed as required by the assembly design, in every layer of gypsum board before removing the shims at the floor.
    The shims are critical to ensure best results.
  • Caulk around the entire perimeter of the gypsum board. Use fire and smoke rated acoustical sealant where required.

Ceilings: One and Two Layers of 5/8" Gypsum Board

  • Resilient Sound Isolation Clips (RSIC-1) shall be 48 inches maximum on center .
  • Fasten the Resilient Sound Isolation Clip (RSIC-1) to the substrate with a fastener approved for a minimum pull-out and sheer of 120 lbs.
  • Ensure the internal metal ferrule is tight to the substrate.
  • Locate the first row of RSIC-1 clips within 8 inches of the wall at each end of a run.
  • Snap in the drywall furring channel (hat track) into the RSIC-1 clips.
  • Install the gypsum board from leaving a 1/4" min. gap around the perimeter of the ceiling.
  • Caulk around the entire perimeter of the gypsum board. Use fire and smoke rated acoustical sealant where required.

General Information:

  • Refer to www.UL.com, or www.pac-intl.com for complete installation details on all fire resistive assembly designs.
  • Resilient Sound Isolation Clip (RSIC-1), furring channel (hat track) and gypsum board shall not carry heavy loads such as cabinets or bookshelves
  • Splice furring channel (hat track) with 6 inch overlap in mid span, secure with 18 ga. tie wire or with two framing screws (7/16")
  • Seal all potential air leaks with non-hardening acoustical caulking to achieve best noise control results. Use fire rated sealant where required.
  • When attaching the RSIC-1 clips to a steel stud the minimum allowable thickness is 20 ga. (0.030).

RSIC CLIPS ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Drywall Furring Channel Overlap:

  • Overlap drywall furring channel mid span in between RSIC clips and fasten together with 2 Steel framing screws


RSIC clip Soffit installation:

  • Soffits should be hard framed and RSIC clips instalaled to the outside of the soffit frame to support the gypsum board.




RSIC clip Beam installation:

  • Beams can be floated with 90 deg. angle or supported with a single run of RSIC clips and channel at the lowest point.






RSIC clip Transition or interruption installation:

  • The furring channel may be interrupted by HVAC, Light Fixtures, Sprinkler heads, or other items that need to penetrate the ceiling.
  • The furring channel may be trimmed to allow this interruption when stringbacks are placed perpendicular to the main runs of channel and are supported by the adjacent furring channel runs, and the interruption is box framed using drywall furring channel.
  • Additional RSIC-1 clips may be added to support the additional weight of a light box or light fixture. Add one RSIC-1 clip for every 36 lbs added to the ceiling at those location

Optional RSIC-1 clip added to support the end of the channel
