How do you install resilient bars on the wall?
- Flange mounting on battens or joists. On walls, fix the resilient bars to the battens every 600mm, horizontally from floor to ceiling, by the narrow fixing flange.
- Fitting the plasterboard. Use a double layer of high density acoustic plasterboard, at least 12.5mm thick.
- Finishing off.

Similarly one may ask, how do resilient bars work?
A resilient bar is a thin metal channel designed to substantially improve the sound insulation of plasterboard walls and ceilings. The bars work by decoupling the new suspended ceiling from the joists, creating a gap.
Additionally, can you overlap resilient channel? Resilient channels can cantilever a maximum of 6 inches. An option to the overlap would be to abut the adjacent channels over the same framing member, leaving a 1/16-inch gap between the channels. Additional channels should be installed on the wall framing if there will be wall cabinets.
Secondly, how do you soundproof an existing wall?
- Locate the studs in the wall with a stud finder.
- Install the Quiet Barrier HD onto the wall surface with roofing nails, 1 ¼-inch in size.
- Butt the edges of Quiet Barrier HD together and try to minimize the number of seams.
- Place the Quiet Barrier Tape over all seams.
What is Green Glue?
Green Glue Noiseproofing Compound is a viscoelastic damping compound that converts sound energy into a minute amount of heat. Very simply, when used between two rigid layers of material, typically drywall, the compound works to isolate the noise traveling from one room to the other.
