MF-RESILIENT ISOLATION CLIPS
MetroFlex Resilient Isolation Clips are used to decouple new drywall from the existing wall studs/ceiling joists. The Resilient Isolation Clips are screwed into the wood or metal studs and hold hat channel in place. The drywall sheets are then installed over the hat channel which limits the amount of contact between the new drywall and the existing wall/ceiling. MetroFlex Reslient Isolation Clips reduce the amount of sound vibration transmission through the wall/ceiling structure, creating a more sound resistant barrier.

Hat Channel Requirements
MetroFlex Resilient Isolation Clips are designed for use with standard 25 gauge hat channel with a height of 7/8" and a hemmed width of 2-1/2".
Rubber Isolator - The isolator is preformed from rubber and other rubber compounds which allow flexibility and support for the clip. The rubber isolator is designed to decouple the clip from the stud/joist.
Clip Base - The base of the clip is 18 gauge galvanized steel.
FASTENERS FOR EACH STUD/JOIST TYPE
Wood Stud: #8 x 2-1/2" coarse thread screws
Steel Stud: #8 x 1-5/8" self-tapping screws
Concrete: 3/16" diameter x 2-1/4" TapCon anchor screws (or equal)
The Stack Method is the easiest way to install MetroFlex MF-RIC clips.
Clips are stacked no more than 48" apart horizontally on the studs and
the same stud location is used for all hat channel. Clips must be installed
on both ends of the wall to ensure adequate support.
The Staggered Method is the most effective way to install MetroFlex MF-RIC
clips, but uses more clips than the Stack Method. The same 48" max
rule applies, but clips on the adjacent hat channel are not placed on the
same stud as above or below. Simply move the clip one stud to the left
of the clip above. Clips must be installed on both ends of the wall to
ensure adequate support.
