ACOUSTIVIBE sound insulators and metal furrings soundproof drywall ceilings in a unique and innovative way. Rather than attach the metal furrings directly to the wood beams or joists, they’re suspended by ACOUSTIVIBE insulators which have a rubber insert. The insert absorbs shocks and vibrations which will reduce the noise level to the floor above.
ACOUSTIVIBE sound insulators require parallel installation, on the sides of wood beams or joists (glass wool or cellulose). ACOUSTIVIBE sound insulators include a thin piece of rubber on one side and a thick piece on the other. The thin part goes between the beam or joist and the ACOUSTIVIBE insulator. ACOUSTIVIBE insulators are installed with screws (provided). It’s also acceptable to use 1½ inch nails (roofing nails) applied with a pneumatic nail gun.
