GenieClip RST is engineered for superior acoustical performance in reducing the transmission of airborne and impact sound through wall and floor/ceiling assemblies.
GenieClip RST is a unibody molded rubber and galvanized steel part used to attach drywall to either wall or floor/ceiling assemblies. Made from recycled components, and engineered to allow reduction in assembly weight, the GenieClip RST contributes to LEED certified building.
Key features and benefits
The GenieClip RST is a molded rubber and steel isolation clip used to control sound and is designed to:
Significantly improve low-frequency sound control performance
Substantially improve impact noise and help stop sound through walls and floor/ceiling construction
Allow for thinner and even no resilient mat used in certain floor/ceiling assemblies
Substantially reduce costs and associated problems in wood truss floor/ceiling construction and still meet code for fire and sound control—great for apartment construction
No short-circuiting as is often the case with resilient channel
Easy to install
GenieClip RST is easy and fast to install using standard steel furring channel and is extremely stable when held in place with a single fastener. There is nothing to adjust or site fit. The furring channel is simply snapped into the GenieClip RST and the Gypsum Wallboard (GWB) can be immediately installed. Only one screw required to attach metal clip to wood or metal wall studs or floor joists. Engage standard 25 gauge drywall furring channel into either claw, then squeeze channel to engage the claw.
Wood Truss IIC comparison
GenieClip RST outperforms RC-1 AT 100 Hz by 4-5 dB. This enhanced low-frequency performance is the key to higher IIC ratings and better quality construction.
