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 applications of metal, wooden, brick and concrete buildings.

A significant improvement over standard resilient bars in both performance and fitting.


MuteClip® Standard 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® is an acoustic sound isolation clip that is unique in its design for it features a set of dual density rubber polymers, these have been carefully designed and assembled to improve noise reduction over a broad range of frequencies while remaining stable and consistent with every MuteClip®. 

With only a single fixing required per clip, the system minimises the points of contact with the partition and creates an easy to install soundproofing solution with little to no error due to the design. With these properties working in tandem, you will achieve excellent soundproofing against impact and airborne noise in a whole host of applications, all completed with swiftness and efficiency at an affordable price.

Information

  • Dual density rubber acoustic clip.
  • Also available in a low profile design to reduce the loss of room height (MuteClip® LP), and extended profile design (MuteClip® XP) for varying joist heights
  • Dramatically reduces airborne and impact noise as a high performing, slimline acoustic system.
  • Can be used on metal, wooden, brick and concrete structures.
  • Reduced points of contact to help de-couple ceiling and wall systems.
  • A significant improvement over standard resilient bars in both performance and fitting
  • 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 impact transmission.

MuteClip® is part of the MuteRange - these are products that are 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.

Where can the MuteClip® be installed as a soundproofing solution?

MuteClip® is designed to be installed in almost any internal application to soundproof walls and ceilings, used to soundproof existing stud partitions or in brick and block constructions against noisy neighbours, against disruptive noise in the workplace and can also be installed as a highly effective soundproofing solution for home cinemas, recording studios and other audio-focused environments where levels of noise can be found in excess of ordinary household disturbances. It is an affordable option for large residential or commercial projects that opt for or require a robust acoustic solution in where developers wish to exceed standard building regulations that lead to the increased comfort of living or workspace environment. 

What are the weight restrictions for each MuteClip®?

16kg per MuteClip® is the maximum load that can be applied to each clip; our team can help to advise you on the weights on a square meter basis which takes in to account all elements of each system. We aim to be no more than 75% capacity of the clip as hitting the maximum reduces the suspension of the MuteClip, this is true for all other acoustic clips too, reducing its soundproofing effectiveness.

Why are there two different colours featured on the MuteClip®, how do these intend to help with soundproofing?

Each colour represents a different density; these react each in their way to vibration and different intensities of sound, helping to cover a broader range of frequencies to further it’s soundproof qualities.

Is the MuteClip® easy to install?

MuteClip® is designed so that only one fixing is required per clip, this improves the rate of installation, limits the amount of contact with the surface it is attached to (which is vital in soundproofing) and makes it easy to install when it comes to applying the MuteClip® Channel, which is simply snapped in and very easy to level. We do recommend you have a little DIY experience, previous use with drills and a little knowledge of installing into brick and block walls (so that no servicing or plumbing is fixed in to). When it comes to the acoustic plasterboard stage in systems, again, some experience in dry-lining will go a long way to ensure significant gaps and incorrect cutting are minimised as these can affect the result of the sound proofing. Two or more people are required due to the high mass of materials.

Are fixings provided with MuteClip®?

Fixings are not included as there are a range of substrates in various conditions that are often fixed in to, we would recommend seeking advice from a fixings merchant and counsel from a structural engineer on walls that have been subjected to damp, mould or have aged, we do have guidance in our installation sheets which can be found in the Related PDF tab.
