MuteClip® Channel for Part E Building Regulations Compliance

Achieving good levels of Sound Insulation to ensure you pass your sound test and achieve Part E compliance can seem a daunting task. We have put together a myriad of commonly used soundproofing wall and soundproofing floor solutions, with the simple aim of achieving passing your Part E sound test. We have selected a range of products which we have tested frequently and are confident in their onsite performance. So look no further your sound testing, acoustic design and product supplier is looking right at you.

MuteClip® Channel is only compatible with MuteClip®, the reason for this is that the design maintains a return lip to hold substantially more weight as the MuteClip® clasps onto this, it cannot be used as a resilient channel.

MuteClip® Channel is part of the MuteRange core - these are products that been subjected to stringent testing in both laboratory and real world environments providing the best possible solution for the purpose with a result you can trust.

Can the MuteClip® Channel be used as a resilient channel?

MuteClip® Channel cannot be used as a resilient channel, this is because it is not created with a single fixing point, nor does it offer the same mechanical functions as resilient channel - it works in combination only with MuteClip®. 

Do I need to use the Mute Clip® Channel with the MuteClip®, or can I use my own channel?

We advise that you use Mute Clip® Channel with MuteClip® to ensure security and stability, any alternative channels you opt to use will not be guaranteed and will be at your own risk.

Can I use MuteClip® Channel as a Joist Topper?

Joist Toppers are generally installed on top of a joist to securely place acoustic plasterboard between joists, we offer many floor soundproofing alternatives to this method - MuteClip® Channel is not suitable for use in this way.
