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. The suspended ceiling provides ample sound insulation, all whilst maintaining the existing ceiling and reducing any space lost. 

As this results in decoupling them, the new wall or ceiling will be separated from the surface that is vibrating, which is what causes the problem of both airborne noise, impact noise, loud music and more. By decoupling, the noise that travels and penetrates your ceiling system should be severely reduced thanks to the resilient bars, which are fixed perpendicular to the direction of the joists. This system also utilises acoustic sealant and mineral wool between exposed joists and the two separate layers of acoustic plasterboard,  which catches 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. Due to their innovative design and capabilities to offer sound insulation without heavily impacting existing ceilings, resilient bars are considered a soundproofing industry favourite, one that we are more than capable of installing at an expert level.   

Resilient bars offer an exceptional level of sound insulation performance, providing high-density acoustic insulation with the first layer of sound planks and working in partnership with both joists and acoustic sealant between the second layers of plasterboard. Thanks to their incredible soundproofing capabilities and the versatility that they offer for sound insulation, resilient bars can be installed in both domestic and commercial environments and yield brilliant soundproofing results, no matter how intrusive airborne noise or loud music may be.
