As the same GenieClip is used the same furring strip can be used across systems, including the LB2 and LB3 systems, keeping things nice and simple.
The GenieClip is an innovative Canadian product which, in our opinion, offers significantly better protection against transmission when compared to a resilient bar.
The GenieClip system is a superior alternative to the conventional resilient bar system producing better performance and is far less prone to fitting error. In fact its virtually impossible to fit incorrectly.
It significantly improves low frequency sound control performance and this is often the hardest frequency to cope with. Of all the resilient solutions that fix direct to joist it offers the best performance.
How it works
The GenieClip is a moulded rubber and steel isolation clip used to to control the passage of noise. The integral springing mechanism providing much more dampening than the corrugations of a resilient bar system. In fact performance numbers are superior even with a single layer of plasterboard potentially saving on materials cost and labour.
The GenieClip superior performance stems from the generous moulded rubber body that sits within a galvanised steel frame work offering exceptional isolation. The GenieClip can be successfully used as part of a regulation E system.
It is important to understand that the GenieClip system should be used in conjunction with these bespoke Soundstop furring strip as other metal sections will not fit. The GenieClip is designed to have a comfortable working load of 14Kg per clip.
