Resilient Bar 45mm x 13.5mm x 3m

Product code: 61540

Resilient Bar is a thin metal channel designed to substantially improve the sound insulation of plasterboard walls and ceilings. The channel effectively isolates the plasterboard from the studwork, eliminating 'direct contact' to dissipate sound which would normally be transferred through the frame. This system is easy to install and produces excellent results especially when used with suspended high mass ceilings. Each resilient bar is supplied in 3 metre lengths. Please see image for additional dimensions.

Galvanised Steel Resilient Bars

Resilient Bar Profiles are designed to improve the sound insulation of plasterboard walls and ceilings whether used in new build or in the improvement of existing constructions. The profile assists in isolating the plasterboard from the supporting surface hence reducing the area of contact and dissipating the level of sound transferring through the metal section.

Care should be taken to ensure that board fixing do not penetrate through the resilient bar into the timber joist as this will create flanking and reduce the performance of the profile.

Resilient Bar Performance

The choice of board will be dependent on the performance required for both fire and sound insulation.  Reference should be made to the National Building Regulations before commencement of work.

Method of Build

Fix resilient bars 90 degrees to stud work framing either to ceilings or walls.  Fix with the narrow flange to the bottom and the fixing flange to the top using the desired fixing, with exception to the top bar which is fixed with the fixing flange at the bottom.

For singe boarded systems install at 400mm centres, for double boarded systems install resilient bars at 600mm centres.  When installing to ceilings install resilient bars at 400mm centres.

Where abutting door openings cut and install resilient bar noggins between horizontal bars to allow plasterboard to be fixed at the required centres.

Slightly different dimensions from my previous order as it is a different manufacturer. This was not apparent when I ordered it. It would also be useful to sell the self drilling screws required
and remind the buyer that they need them.

Used this product for the first time in the hallway to get around a problem with ceiling joist hanger hardware interfering with ceiling plasterboard. Worked a treat and with the ceiling insulation I've installed I believe there has been a benefit in term of noise reduction.
Cutting the product using a Bosch Circular mitresaw (tungsten tipped blade) made things easier (it's a bit tedious using a hacksaw).

Excellent price and product. The only flaw is that the pitch of holes for screwing the resilient bar to joists or battens is too large. However, not too much of a problem using self drill screws as you will need these to secure the plasterboard anyway

I have used Gypframe RB1 Res. bars and although these have a slightly smaller space for screwing into (40mm instead of 45mm) they are an excellent product. The literature says fix at 600mm centres but do it at 400mm for double boarded systems. They should have put in more holes for screwing into joists but a sharp plasterboard screw works well to pilot through the metal. Most of all the price is excellent - as of May 13' they are a whole £1.50 cheaper from R&J than the RB1's can be found elsewhere - saved me lots of money! Thankyou R&J

Never used this before but it was considerably cheaper than I have seen in many places so thought I'd give it a go. It's easy to fix in place. I'd recommend good tin snips for cutting. When fixing plasterboard to it we found it was easy enough if you apply good pressure on the area you are screwing in to.

We have installed these to a recently renovated 3 storey house which we plan to convert to flats. When the inspector came round we meet the sound transmission regulations Part E. Was easy to install if you follow the instructions and make sure the resilient channel is not bridged to the ceiling. Delivery was next day and at a very cheap price!

A: We would recommend 400.
When fitting these bars direct into single skin block work. What would be the right kind fixings to use?

A: At 400mm centre & screw into the joists. The Resilient bar is already pre-drilled.
Hi What type of screw would i use to fix these to stud and then the plasterboard to the bars please? Thanks Matt

I have to replace a ceiling in an entrance lobby,my architect wants me to use resilient bars screwed to the under side of the existing timber joists, she wants 2 layers of 15mm sound bloc or low db board then fixed the the resilient bars. would this be ok and should I fix the bars at 400mm centers and what screws would you use to fix the resilient bars to the old joists? many thanks tom.

sorry for this "stupid" question : when fixing a suspended ceiling, do I screw the pre drilled holes to the joists then the plasterboard to the "zigzag" flange?
A: There are no stupid questions here ! Yes you are correct screw the pre drilled holes to the joists then the plasterboard to the "zigzag" flange.
Hi and thanks for the speedy delivery of the resilient bars. Can I double check installation? Bars are to be fitted with screws holes to the top and flange at bottom, is this correct as all other installs state screws at the bottom so flange is at top? Just wanted to check thanks.
A: Please see fixing details under "Method of Build" section in Datas Sheet
We have had installed by a contractor resilient bars. We need one more length but the ones installed seem to be 60 x 20mm or thereabouts. Do these bars come in different sizes?
