Made of 25 gauge steel, RC-1 Pro is one of the most effective, low-cost methods of improving sound transmission loss through wood and steel frame partitions. It is used as a cross-furring member for resilient attachment of gypsum. Knurled face makes screw attachment of wallboard easier.
Resilient channel should be installed perpendicular to the framing members with the attachment flange of the RC-1 Pro installed along the bottom edge. Channel is pre-punched for screw attachments to wood or steel framing members. Nails are not recommended for attaching RC-1 Pro resilient channel to framing members.
