Iso-Mount Type2 for timber & concrete soundproof ceilings
Sound travels through floors and ceilings as vibrations and sound pressure waves generated by footsteps, voices or music on an upper floor. Using our Iso-Mount Type2 to create an isolated, 'floating' ceiling you will stop the vibration that causes the transfer of unwanted noise from floor to floor.
The Iso-Mount Type2 significantly expands the versatility of our Iso-Mount range of isolating acoustic hangers for soundproof ceilings. Iso-Mount Type2 can fix under existing ceilings without disruption, directly or with extensions for 50mm to over 1 metre voids for acoustic/thermal insulation and services.
Typical Iso-Mount Type2 applications include: House conversion to flats, house and flat renovations, new builds, shops, restaurants and other commercial soundproofing applications.

Iso-Mount soundproof ceiling advantages
Our unique Iso-Mount Type2 acoustic hanger design uses isolating soundproof ceiling technology:
- Significantly improves the soundproofing of existing ceilings: impact and airborne sound reduction.
- Fixes under existing concrete and timber joist ceilings with minimum fixings.
- All work is done from the room below.
- Proven acoustic performance.
- Exceeds British Building Regs Document E for airborne & impact sound.
- Just 1 hole to drill per mount; saves hours when drilling concrete.
Impact and airborne sound reduction
Impact: The rubber block breaks the path of vibration reducing the sound of footsteps etc.
Airborne: The additional acoustic insulation reduces the sound of voices, music, TV etc.
Screw direct to concrete using just 1 concrete screw per hanger
into plasterboard using 1 screw fixing into the timber joist per acoustic hanger.
Iso-Mount soundproof ceiling testimonials
"Once again thank you for your prompt response with processing our order for the additional Iso-Mounts. The owners took us by surprise when they asked for the additional area to be done, but they have been so impressed with the results of all the acoustic ceilings that they felt they just had to have it done."

“The whole transaction has been simple and easy. I fitted the ceiling this weekend and it’s made an instant difference. So much so, that I had to ask the owner of the flat above if he had been using the room above. I will recommend the product to my friends and will use it on other ceilings in my flat. Keep up the good work!”

"Soundproof ceiling is complete...
I've tested it by powering up a loud DeWalt router in the garage and seeing how loud it is in the room above.
WOW. Can hardly hear it...It really was much quieter than I thought it would be. I can finally use the workshop in the evening when the kids are asleep in the room above. I'll admit not having done it before I was unsure if it would deaden the noise enough for power tools...but I am blown away by how well it works. Thanks again for your help - much appreciated."
