MuteClip® Channel

Thickness: 29mm for each MuteClip® Standard and MetueClip channel

Compliance: Compliant with both Part E Building Regulations (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland) and Building Standards Technical Handbook 2017 for Scotland for airborne and impact transmission.

Installation: Only one fixing per MuteClip® required, find additional installation information below.

Where: Wall and ceiling installation to separate building elements such as stud frames from the wall. It is also ideal for suspended ceilings, making it compatible with Metal Frame (MF) ceilings. A significant improvement over standard resilient bars in both performance and fitting.

MuteClip® MP 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.

How to soundproof walls and ceilings

A combination of the following will always result in the best acoustic performance possible:

Mass: the addition of more substantial materials to reduce sound energy, for example, added layers of acoustic barrier combined with soundproof plasterboard.

Separation: breaking contact with the surface or surfaces through the use of acoustic isolation clips or stud framing.

Damping: the reduction of vibration through the use of flexible, damping materials such as Tecsound.

MuteClip® is the principal component of all MuteClip® Systems and is what provides separation by decoupling from a vast range of surfaces and frameworks. By breaking contact with surfaces and creating an air gap, each MuteClip® system gives a significant improvement over directly fitted systems, for example, fitting Acoustic Plasterboard to the surface.

We understand that it is not always possible to incorporate significant losses of space with say, the introduction of a stud frame, so we provide many options that can be applied directly to partitions, to help suit your desired performance, cost and thickness.

Installation Guide

MuteClip® Installation

Recommended Centre for MuteClip® on Timber Stud / Brick / Blockwork – WALLS ONLY.

MuteClip® Ceiling Installation

With a ceiling configuration, we would recommend removal of the existing ceiling for a secure fit into the bottom of the joists. Recommended Centre for MuteClip® on Timber Joist / Concrete Slab (CEILINGS ONLY).

*Standard joist centres of 0.4 centres
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®.
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.
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.
