For the soundproofing of timber and concrete ceilings
The Iso-Mount Type2 significantly expands the versatility of our Oscar Iso-Mount range of isolating acoustic hangers for soundproofing ceilings.
The 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.
Screw direct to concrete using just 1 concrete screw per hanger OR
into plasterboard using 1 screw fixing into the timber joist per hanger
House conversion to flats, new build and renovation of houses and flats. Shops, restaurants and other commercial soundproofing applications.
The end of noisy upstairs neighbours problems
Our unique Iso-Mount Type2 design uses isolating acoustic technology to provide you with the best possible ceiling acoustics and soundproofing.
Key benefits of the Iso-Mount Type2 include:
- Improves the soundproofing of existing ceilings: impact and airbourne sound reduction.
- Fixes under existing concrete and timber joist ceilings with minimum fixings.
- All work is done from the room below. Your neighbours never need to know!
- Proven acoustic performance.
Impact and airbourne sound reduction
Impact: The rubber block breaks the path of vibration reducing the sound of footsteps etc.
Airbourne: The additional acoustic insulation reduces the sound of voices, music, TV etc.
Iso-Mount Type2 design features include:
- All of the installation is completed working only from the room below.
- Just 1 hole to drill per mount; saves hours when drilling concrete.
- 18kg max load per Iso-Mount: 3 mounts/sq.mtr (spaced evenly) gives a maximum weight load of 54kg/sq.mtr.
- The GL1 ‘C’ channel and GL3 connectors/steel channels are widely available from many well known UK manufacturers. We do not stock steel channels so you can save money by purchasing your required amount directly from manufacturers. We found it online for as little as £0.88 per metre!
Steel channel not included. You can save money by purchasing directly through many well known UK manufacturers
Oscar Iso-Mount 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!”

"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."
