Resilient Bars Ceiling

A breakdown of resilient bars used in soundproofing.

Airborne and Impacts Noises – Why you might need resilient bars

If you live in a small flat or house, ceiling height could be a real problem when soundproofing, which is why resilient bars are such a popular product of ours. For rooms with low roofs, the resilient bar decouples the new ceiling from the joist, so sound gets absorbed as it travels through the flange of the bar which is built to absorb vibrations.

As this decouples them, the new wall or ceiling will be separated from the surface that is vibrating and causing the problem. This means that noise travel and penetration should be severely reduced thanks to the resilient bars which are fixed perpendicular to the direction of the joists. This system also utilises mineral wool between exposed joists and two layers of acoustic plasterboard, to catch any vibrations before they slip through gaps or cracks.

Who else could benefit from resilient bars?

The benefits of soundproofing are applicable to almost any environment; from the gentle calm of a home, to the hustle and bustle of a professional office. We, and any other reputable soundproofing company, would strongly recommend resilient bars to any customer that has the budget for them, as they can significantly improve your soundproofing efforts.
