Construct soundproof walls using a resilient sound channel.
A resilient channel is a thin metal strip designed to substantially improve the insulation and absorption of sound in drywall. When sound waves hit one side of the drywall it causes a vibration on that side. Without a structure to block the sound waves, they bounce and reverberate, resulting in a “low hum.” This makes it hard for people to hear each other in conversation, or to enjoy the best tones of a musical performance.
If you want resilient sound channels in Richmond, ours are manufactured in corrosion resistant galvanized steel and are available with single or double legs.
- Installation of resilient channels dampens the energy and reduces sound by suspending the drywall from the steel studs.
- Single-leg resilient channel is commonly used in wall applications.
- Double-leg resilient channel has two legs for rapid installation, and is typically used for ceiling applications with multiple layers of gypsum board.
Resilient sound channels are also available in heavy duty 22m gauge or with extra wide screw flange.
