Product Summary

Where customers want to install the high performance Genie Clip system but they simply cannot afford the head height loss, then the LB3 system is ideal. The solution which runs parallel to existing joists sets the Genie clip "furring bar" at virtually the same level as the existing joist line. This means no head height loss with this variation of the Genie Clip system. Please see fitting guide for more details.

The GenieClip™ is an innovative Canadian product which offers significantly better protection against transmission when compared to a resilient bar.

The LB3 type fixing now means that you can fit the GenieClip™ system while suffering virtually no ceiling height loss whatsoever. This bracket fastens to the inside of the joist such that the furring channel can sit just below the run of the joists.

We can offer an estimated requirement with the following calculator but bear in mind that joist spacings can vary and hence this is an estimation only.

The GenieClip™ superior performance stems from the generous moulded rubber body that sits within a galvanized steel frame work offering exceptional isolation. The GenieClip™ can be successfully used as part of a regulation E system.

If you wish to buy just the GenieClip™ alone please be aware that you will need to buy the bespoke furring strip as well. Other metal sections do not fit this product.

However if you are looking to buy them as part of a ceiling construction we recommend you go to The GenieClip™ ceiling systems. This page will contain an easy to use set of materials calculators and full fitting instructions for soundproofing a ceiling.

For an idea of how many The GenieClip™s you will need you can use the calculator on the right of the page. However with this type of clip we are unable to give you accurate quantities as the joist centres in every property vary. We recommend that you fasten to the side of each joist with a centre of 1.2m apart per clip.

Further Information [more]

For those customers wanting to incorporate the highest performance materials into their soundproofing projects we introduce the GenieClip™ solution. The GenieClip™ is a very high performance solution that provides the best single component we know of when soundproofing a ceiling. The clip itself outperforms a resilient bar by around 7 db, an impressive amount.

The GenieClip™ is screwed direct to joist working in the same manner that a resilient bar ceiling would, and it houses the "furring strips". To these furring strips plasterboard is attached using screws.

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.

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 figures are superior even with a single layer of plasterboard, potentially saving on materials cost and labour.
