The GenieClip soundproofing kit for concrete ceilings is a comprehensive solution designed to effectively reduce noise pollution while enhancing fire safety. At its core is the Hush Slab Insulation, a high-density mineral wool that serves as the primary sound-absorbing material. It is strategically packed into the ceiling cavity to mitigate the transmission of airborne sounds. Complementing the Hush Slab are the Soundbloc Plasterboard and the Fireline Plasterboard.

Integral to this system is the GenieClip RST, a unique combination of rubber and steel designed for decoupling the ceiling from its structure. By attaching these clips to the ceiling and fixing the furring channels onto them, a floating ceiling structure is created.

The soundproofing kit for concrete ceilings combines various components to create an effective barrier against noise pollution and enhance fire safety. It includes:

  1. Hush Slab Insulation: High-density mineral wool, used for absorbing airborne sounds. It’s packed into the ceiling cavity, acting as the primary sound-insulating layer.
  2. GenieClip RST: A unique rubber and steel clip system for decoupling the ceiling from its structure. These clips are attached to the ceiling, onto which furring channels are fixed. This arrangement creates a floating ceiling effect, significantly reducing the transmission of both impact and airborne noise.
  3. GTEC Siniat Fire Board Tapered Edge: A specialized plasterboard with elevated fire resistance. It enhances the safety of the space by offering superior fire protection. Its robust construction adds to the ceiling’s stability and sound insulation.
  4. Soundbloc Plasterboard: Known for its sound-insulating properties, this high-density plasterboard further reduces the transmission of airborne noise, complementing the Hush Slab.
  5. Fireline Plasterboard: Similar in function to the GTEC board, this plasterboard provides additional fire resistance, ensuring compliance with safety standards.

This system synergises these components to deliver a comprehensive solution: the Hush Slab and plasterboards reduce sound transmission, the GenieClips prevent sound bridging by decoupling the ceiling, and the fire-resistant plasterboards ensure safety.

The most important factor to soundproofing a room is to add layers of dense mass. In layman’s terms, the thicker the wall the less sound can travel through it.

he GenieClip High Mass Ceiling Kit is highly effective at reducing the transmission of low-frequency noises. The combination of the mass-loaded vinyl (Tecsound) and high-density acoustic plasterboard significantly increases the mass and density of the ceiling, which are critical factors in blocking and dampening low-frequency sounds. The decoupling effect of the GenieClip system further enhances this by isolating the ceiling from the floor joists, thus preventing vibration and impact noises from easily transferring.

The installation of the GenieClip High Mass Ceiling Kit will result in a slight reduction in the ceiling height, typically a few inches, due to the addition of the acoustic plasterboard and the decoupling system. The exact amount of height reduction will depend on the specific installation method and materials used. It’s important to plan for this change, especially in rooms with already low ceilings.

Acoustic Mineral Wool is engineered with a density that surpasses many other sound control methods, making it a superior choice for those seeking effective acoustic insulation.

When installed between floor joists and within stud partitions, it offers an optimal solution for enhancing soundproofing capabilities.

This specialised mineral wool effectively absorbs and dampens sound vibrations, significantly reducing noise transmission and enhancing the acoustic performance of the space. Its unique density and composition make it a valuable addition to any soundproofing project, ensuring a quieter and more comfortable environment.

This wall soundproofing solution is designed to exceed Part E Acoustic Building Regulations. So, it’s only the installation that could let you down. The main focus to do your homework on what noises are present and where they are coming from.

The primary distinction between conventional plasterboard and acoustic plasterboard hinges on their density. Acoustic plasterboards possess superior sound-deadening attributes thanks to their denser core.

Although both variants are crafted from gypsum, acoustic plasterboard incorporates additional components, such as mineral wool or glass fiber, which enhance its sound-absorption capabilities.

Consequently, sound-resistant plasterboard excels at diminishing noise levels and obstructing sound transmission through walls and ceilings. These boards can reduce sound by approximately 30 to 50 decibels. However, it’s important to note that the heightened density of acoustic plasterboard can render it heavier and more challenging to install compared to standard plasterboard.

The components of the GenieClip High Mass Ceiling Kit are manufactured with fire safety in mind. The acoustic plasterboard is typically fire-rated, and when used in combination with fire-resistant sealants and proper installation techniques, the overall system can contribute to the fire-resistance rating of the ceiling. However, for specific fire rating requirements and compliance with local building codes, it’s important to check the product specifications and consult with a professional.
