Why Choose MuteClip® XP

Specialist Acoustic Hangers and Soundproofing Clips for Part E Building Regulations Compliance

Thickness: MuteClip® XP offers a varying depth, so this will alter depending on which system you choose.

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: four fixings require per MuteClip®, you find additional installation information below.

Where: ceiling installation to metal and timber frames.

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


MuteClip® XP 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® XP (Extended Profile) is an acoustic sound isolation clip that is unique in its design with its dual density rubber polymers, each carefully designed and assembled to improve noise reduction over a broad range of frequencies while remaining stable and consistent with every MuteClip® XP. The extended profile helps to accommodate varying joist depths whilst maintaining the same performance as the standard MuteClip®, it is is installed up onto the required depths on the inside of the joist, creating an efficient and streamlined way to ensure a suited levelling of the ceiling instead of building a new framework or resulting to ad-hoc methods of installation. The MuteClip® XP systems look to minimise the points of contact with the joists while creating an easy to install a system with little to no error due to the accomplished design. With these properties working in tandem, you will achieve excellent soundproofing against impact and airborne noise on a whole host of projects, all completed with swiftness and efficiency at an affordable price.

In scenarios where space is at a premium and that your joists are level, we would recommend the use of MuteClip® LP (Low Profile) or standard MuteClip®, if there is no requirement for reduced head height.

Information

  • Dual density rubber acoustic sound isolation clip.
  • Extended profile design to accommodate varying room and 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 systems.
  • Significantly improves sounds control in both high and low frequencies.
  • 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® XP is part of the MuteRange core - 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® XP be installed as a soundproofing solution?

MuteClip® XP is designed with an extended profile (XP), and this allows each clip to be installed on the side of the joist so that the MuteClip® Channel now runs inside the joist at variable heights to maintain a level ceiling where variable heights can be problematic - this makes it perfect for sound proofing rooms with a varying ceiling heights. This system is ideal for home soundproofing where impact and airborne noise from above is intrusive, as well as using it as an acoustic solution for recording studios, cinema rooms and other environments that generate noise in excess.

Can MuteClip® XP be used to soundproof a wall?

MuteClip® XP cannot be installed on any wall construction as the bracket would be larger than most stud frame walls and would often be beneficial for creating a stud framework and using our standard MuteClip®.

What are the weight restrictions for each MuteClip® XP?

16kg per MuteClip® XP is the maximum load you can apply to each clip, and our team can help to advise you on the weights. We aim to be no more than 75% capacity of the clip as hitting the maximum reduces the suspension of the MuteClip® XP, and with any other soundproofing clip too, reducing its soundproofing effectiveness.

How much of a variance in ceiling height can the MuteClip® XP accommodate?

MuteClip® XP can accommodate 100mm of a difference in ceiling height. The MuteClip® Channel needs to run straight through without any bending or fluctuation in heights if there are this could cause acoustic plasterboard to butt up uneven with one another.

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

Each colour represents a different density, and these react differently to vibration and intensity of sound which helps to cover a broader range of frequencies in sound proofing.

Are fixings provided with Mute Clip® XP?

Fixings are not provided with Mute Clip® XP, and these will need to source these from a local fixings merchant - you can find out more about installation and guidance of fixings in the Related PDF tab.
