Resilient Channel Systems

Resilient Channels for Walls and Ceilings

 

One of the most efficient low-cost methods of reducing sound transmission in wood or steel-framed partition or ceiling assemblies.

  • Lab-certified STC-rated up to 62
  • Single and double-leg channels
  • RC Deluxe™ has extra-wide screw surface for easy attachment
  • Available in 12’ lengths

ClarkDietrich resilient channel is one of the most efficient low-cost methods developed to reduce transmission of airborne sound through partition and ceiling assemblies. The resilient channel dampens sound waves effectively, dissipating the energy and reducing sound transmission by suspending gypsum wallboard 1/2" from the stud or joist. Sound absorption can be maximized by utilizing sound attenuation blankets within the wall or floor cavity.

Resilient channel is manufactured from 18mil and 22mil corrosion-resistant galvanized steel and is available with single or double legs.

ClarkDietrich RC Deluxe™ resilient channel is the preferred resilient channel in many applications because of its extra-wide 1-1/2" screw flange. The extra-wide flange provides added rigidity and a wider surface for faster and easier installation of sheathing materials.

ClarkDietrich RC-1 Pro™ high-performance single-leg resilient channel has a 1-1/4" screw flange. RC-1 Pro™ is commonly used in wall applications.

ClarkDietrich RC-2 Pro™ double-leg resilient channel has two legs for rapid installation. Double leg resilient installation is typically used for ceiling applications with multiple layers of gypsum board.

ClarkDietrich RC-1 ProPlus™ heavy-duty (22mil) single-leg resilient channel has a 1-1/4" screw flange. RC-1 Pro™ is commonly used in wall applications.

ClarkDietrich RC-2 ProPlus™ heavy-duty (22mil) double-leg resilient channel has two legs for rapid installation. Double leg resilient installation is typically used for ceiling applications with multiple layers of gypsum board.
