Isocheck Isoblock and Isobar

Application

  • Suitable for enhancing separating ceilings and walls.
  • For new build, conservation and refurbishments.

Description

Isocheck Isoblock and Isobar is a sound reduction system designed to offer a more robust alternative to a standard resilient bar with similar low profile features.


The Isocheck Isoblock and Isobar system comprises a vibration absorbing steel channel which is secured to studs and joists with isolation blocks.


Attaching the isolation block to ceiling joists, timber and metal studs simply and easily secures the Isobar furring channel and decouples the gypsum board from the structure. The resulting construction provides a resilient isolation solution to enhance or construct separating and partition walls and ceilings.


Features and benefits:

  • Weight capacity of 45–60 lbs maximum, see installation guidelines.
  • Acoustic performance from 46 dB to 60 dB (Rw), depending on wall construction.
  • Economical, easy to install system. Attaches simply to ceiling joists, wall studs and masonry.
  • Significant improvement on the use of resilient bars alone.
  • Error free installation of standard drywall furring channel; maximizes available occupied space.
  • Withstands greater loads than standard systems to provide peace of mind for developers and dwellers.
  • Isocheck Isoblocks simply attach to ceiling joists, wall studs or masonry and easily secure the Isobar furring channel.
  • One or more layers of gypsum board are hung to this channel using good construction practices.
  • Offering consistent high values than a standard resilient bar, the Isocheck Isoblock ensures that installers are unable to inadvertently bridge the resilient leg of the channel into the joist or stud.
