Acoustic Wall Solutions

Walls often require acoustic treatment to prevent the passage of sound from one internal room to another or between dwellings. When it comes to acoustic wall solutions, the TVS portfolio caters for all airborne and noise control requirements when specifying wall treatments. This includes both high performance isolation products and damping materials.

TVS RESi Clip and Channel

TVS RESi Clip is a high performing sound reduction system designed to completely isolate walls and ceilings.

Attaching the Isolation Clip to ceiling joists, timber and metal studs or masonry simply and easily secures the drywall-furring channel, and decouples the gypsum board from the non-isolated structure.

The resulting construction provides a resilient isolation solution for internal walls and ceilings.



Features & Benefits

  • Ceiling and Wall Solution
  • Low Profile (space saving system)
  • Attaches easily to Ceiling Joists, Wall Studs and Masonry
  • Significant improvement on the use of resilient channel alone (plus ensures the system is not short circuited during installation)
  • Offers a robust and higher performing alternative to traditional wall and ceiling isolation methods
  • Withstands greater loads than standard systems to provide peace of mind for developers and dwellers
  • • Weight capacity 30kg maximum per clip, see installation guidelines (other thicknesses of channel are available on request for higher wall and ceiling loads)

TVS hangers are shipped fully assembled and ready for installation in threaded rod suspension systems. For more technical information please download our brochure on this page.



TVS Resilient Wall Ties

Application

Where it is required to structurally tie an isolated wall in to an un-isolated structure, there is a potential bridge in the box-in-box design. TVS Resilient Wall Ties overcome this problem by integrating a high performance Sylomer element in to the wall tie.

Available in a whole host of designs, depending upon the construction of the isolated and un-isolated structures that are being resiliently tied (stud work, masonry etc), these ties offer natural frequencies down to 8Hz providing optimal acoustic results. They have a fail-safe rugged metal structure and are recommended for applications where fire or impact resistance is necessary.



TVS Isolation Strips

TVS Partition Isolation Strips are designed to sit beneath all types of studwork and steel track partitions where flanking noise isolation is required. Available in various grades and thicknesses to ensure that the highest acoustic performance is always achieved.

Although from an acoustic perspective, constructing the walls off the floating slab would provide the best box-in-box solution, the additional complications that this would cause in terms of the design of the floated slab, the construction programme and the overall build-ability mean that the most common method of isolating the walls in a cinema is to build these off a resilient strip on the structural slab.

TVS Isolation Strips provide a low natural frequency solution that is easy to integrate in to the wall construction. Any fixings through this material should incorporate a resilient washer to prevent any short-circuiting of the isolation strip.

For more technical information about cinema acoustics please download our brochure on this page.



Features & Benefits

  • Offers long term performance without collapse or ‘bottoming out’ under high point loads
  • Common thicknesses 17-25mm, although other thicknesses are available depending upon performance required
  • Grades capable of withstanding loads up to and including 1.5N/mm2, with low frequency performance achieved
  • Resistance to ageing and deformation
  • Quick and easy to install
  • Minimises construction heights
  • High quality and exact material thickness guaranteed

TVS Resilient Washers

Application

Elastic washers EW are used to decouple structure-borne noise bridges that arise from screw connections. The polyurethane material Sylodyn® effectively isolates vibrations and retains its material properties over its entire service life. As well as decoupling vibrations, the washers are also electrically non-conductive and resistant to common oils and greases.

Design

As well as the simple design, the washers are also available with a centring aid (groove), to facilitate easier installation and to guarantee the exact positioning of the screw with the hole. The dimensions are adapted to screw sizes M8, M10, M12 and M16 and are available in different bearing thicknesses for different efficiencies of insulation.


Features & Benefits

  • Effective vibration isolation and vibration decoupling
  • Material properties remain constant over the long term
  • No brittleness (free from softeners)
  • Range for different screw sizes
  • Variants with centring aid
  • Flammability in accordance with DIN EN 13501-1
  • Surface protection
  • Electrically non-conductive
  • Resistant to oils and greases
  • Thermally insulating
