Fibertex

  • How do I fix Fibertex to a Surface?
    • We recommend mechanically fixing to a structure with 4 fixings and a large washer hold in position.

  • Can I Install directly on walls to absorb noise?
    • Yes, ideally you would do this in an industrial application where appearance is not an issue as the product is fibrous. Many builders will use fibertex around pool pumps and install inside generator bays to control reverberation.

  • Can I use Fibertex to make my own sound absorber?
    • Yes. A good idea is to make a frame to go on the outside perimeter of the fibertex product. Wrap the product with a breathable product like a cotton fabric. Staple to the frame and hang or place in the required location.

  • Can I cut Fibertex?
    • Yes, you can cut with a hand saw or large Fatmax Stanley knife and straight edge. Always use the correct PPE when using hand tools.

  • Can I install in walls behind plasterboard?
    • Yes you can. As this product is an industrial application it will need to be cut down to size. This product is very dense and heavy and will control noise inside walls.

Fire Sound Acoustic-sealant

  • Can I use Fire Sound Acoustic Sealant it as an Adhesive?
    • No. It is not recommended to use an adhesive to structurally bond materials together at high strength.

  • Where do I use Fire Sound Acoustic Sealant?
      • Fire Sound Acoustic Sealant should be used on small penetrations to seal the opening in the wall assembly.
      • It should be used when joining 2 layers of Sound-Stop 5 together to create an acoustic seal.
      • When joining a wall and ceiling plasterboard assembly together. The Fire Sound Acoustic Sealant should be beaded in the join to decouple both ceiling and wall plasterboard form each other to stop noise flanking.

Resilient Channel

  • What fixings should I use?
    • We recommend using self-drilling plasterboard screws. Always use fixings that are long enough to penetrate the plasterboard and resilient channel but will not puncture the Sound-Stop 5.

  • Can I use the resilient channel on a wall?
    • Yes, you sure can. If you are looking to increase the transmission loss around another 3dB-5dB it is a cost-effective way to increase transmission loss.

  • Can I cut the channel?
    • Yes. Simply cut with a snips or grinder. Always remember to use the correct PPE.

  • Where should I use a resilient channel?
    • A resilient channel a designed to decouple the plasterboard from the structure. We always recommend using resilient channels on the ceiling in conjunction with Sound Stop 5. The resilient channel will reduce impact noise coming down through the floor and increase transmission loss.

Sound Stop Foam Composite

Super Grip Tape

  • How is Super Grip Tape applied?
    • Pell off the liner backing of the tape and slowly apply Super Grip Tape to the area that needs to be sealed. The tape needs a firm pressure and must be rubbed by your hand as this applies heat and pressure which in turn activates the adhesive to adhere to the substrates.

  • What is the Tape made from?
    • The tape is made from a robust ripstop fiberglass fine weave mesh. The adhesive is a specially formulated permanent acrylic adhesive.

  • How do I cut the tape?
    • The Super Grip Tape has to be cut with a Stanley knife or scissors. The tape cannot be ripped by hand.

  • How much noise does Super Grip Tape stop?
    • Super Grip Tape does not stop noise it is used to join the Sound-Stop 5 together to create an acoustic seal.

  • Why should I use Super Grip Tape?
    • Super Grip Tape has been designed to adhere to the Sound-Stop 5. Other tapes will peel over time as some adhesives will not work with the plasticizers in Sound-Stop 5.

Stratocell® Whisper™

  • How are the panels Fixed?
    • The Stratocell® Whisper™ can be mechanically fixed with 8 fixings if attached to a wall. 3 fixings on each side and 2 in the center with a large washer. Product can also be attached by using a polyethylene adhesive like 3M 90 High Strength adhesive.

  • Can the panels get wet?
    • Yes, it is ok for the panels to get wet on the front face. But a capping must be placed on top to stop water/rain from entering the top of the panel.

  • Can the panels be used outside and inside?
    • They are two types of panels a fire-resistant panel (FR) and an ultraviolet (UV) panel.

      A FR panel must be used inside for fire regulations.

      A UV panel must be used outside as UV additives are added to this panel for UV stability.

  • Can I paint the panels?
    • No, the panels cannot be painted as this will affect the noise absorption qualities of the product.

  • Can I cut the Stratocell® Whisper™?
    • Yes, the Stratocell® Whisper™ can be cut with a Circular saw or sharp knife and straight edge to required size.

  • How much noise do the panels stop?
    • The panels are excellent for absorbing noise, with an NRC of 1 which means the highest absorption possible. The panels have an STC/Rw of 14 which means a 14-dB drop.
