MuteStrip

£10.00 (Excluding VAT)

£12.00 (Including VAT)

Why Choose MuteStrip

Dimensions: 2m x 46mm x 4/8mm.

Weight: 400g

For: homes, workplaces, industrial developments, and specialist audio environments.

Compliance: Compliant with both Part E Building Regulations (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland).*

Installation: Please see our installation tab below.

Where: multi-use application on walls, floors and ceilings, with special focus on decoupling the structure to improve acoustic performance.


MuteStrip is an essential component for the damping of vibration in metal structures, and in decoupling building of stud-frames and flooring, joists to assist in decoupling the structure, an essential property of reducing structural-borne vibration and low-frequency noise through suspending the mass away.

MuteStrip is a visco-elastic material, and this means it is both a viscous material, part way between a solid and a liquid, and has elastic properties, meaning that it returns to its original form when stresses within its limits are applied, like pulling an elastic band, if you pull it too hard it will break. It is also self-adhesive and will apply to an extensive range of building materials. This creates a great alternative for those who only need to apply small strips to certain areas to control vibration, instead of using Tecsound that comes in great sizes. MuteStrip will not falter under expected weights in most applications that are common in households and commercial properties, but with significant weights being applied that are not usually expected, then do let us know.


Information

  • To decouple stud framing and floating floor constructions, essential for projects that require low-frequency or vibration control
  • Apply to metal to reduce any form of ringing, or metallic like sound including forms of rattling
  • Easy to cut and manage
  • Visco-elastic material
  • Self-adhesive strip that applied to both timber and metal

Can MuteStrip be applied to both timber and metal studs to improve soundproofing?

MuteStrip is perfect for use of timber and metal studs to help separate it from the adjacent surfaces, in metal framework it will help to dampen vibration and problematic resonant frequencies that are often found in metal structures. For an alternative product for lining stud timber framing, take a look at our Isolation Strip.


Can MuteStrip be used to reduce footsteps and other impact noises on timber joist floors?

MuteStrip can also be used to sound proof floors with space at a premium by separating the sub-floor from the joists, reducing impact and vibration travelling into the structure.

Our alternative product for floors that will allow for additional floor heights, do take a look at our Isolation Strip.


Where else can MuteStrip be used?

MuteStrip is a visco-elastic strip that helps to sound proof against structural-borne vibration, so where any metal work is concerned or any machinery that conducts problematic vibration, MuteStrip can be applied. Because it has a high-grab self-adhesive backing, it is incredibly easy to install - it has been used with speaker placements, and it has also been used to de-couple air conditioning units where fixings are placed to reduce the transfer amount of vibration travelling into walls.


Does the MuteStrip compress under a certain weight?

MuteStrip is a highly dense sound proof material and would need to be subject to a significant amount of weight before it compresses. In most cases, it will not be a concern, but with any questions you may have or where high amounts of small point weight is going to be applied - please do contact us

Make sure to peel the paper covering off to expose the self-adhesive face, do not pull off the meshing on the reverse, this protects and holds the material together.

MuteStrip must be installed on to a clean surface, one that is debris and oil free to remain in place.
