Stop noise transfer between floors with Iso-Mount

Noise transfers through ceilings and floors as sound pressure waves and vibrations generated by footsteps, voices or music on an upper floor.  These penetrate and travel through floorboards, joists and ceilings in the form of vibration and noise.  By creating an isolated or 'floating ceiling' using Iso-Mount acoustic hangers you stop the vibration that causes the transfer of unwanted noise from between floors.

Our unique Iso-Mount acoustic hanger design combines space saving with isolating acoustics to provide you with the best possible ceiling soundproofing.  Iso-Mount is the ultimate high performance acoustic hanger that exceeds Building Regs Part E and achieves up to a 90 minute fire rating where required.

Iso-Mount testimonials

Read Iso-Mount case study

"I did not fully appreciate at the time, but the use of Iso-Mount with industry standard metal channel was a huge bonus and cost saver.  Also, we did not appreciate how much time and money we saved using the adjustable Iso-Mounts to level the uneven joists.  Now installed the ceiling is superb and flat as a pancake.  In terms of acoustic isolation the system is superb and overall I couldn’t be more pleased with the end result.  The Iso-Mount system is a brilliant way to isolate noise between floors.  I recommend it very highly."

“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!”
