If you are able to remove the existing ceiling you can limit the amount of floor to ceiling height lost by using this system. The first step is to remove the existing ceiling. The ceiling structure can then be refitted and decoupled from the floor joists using Resilient Bars. Silent Floor - retrofit comprises two layers of 15mm Gyproc SoundBloc, 100mm acoustic insulation and Gypframe RB1 Resilient Bars.
The ceiling to be treated should have electrical points isolated and removed from the ceiling. Next, remove the existing plasterboard from the ceiling to expose the floor joists. Gypframe RB1 Resilient Bars can then be fixed to the underside of the joist at 450mm centres, 100mm Isover acoustic insulation placed between the joists and then two staggered layers of 15mm Gyproc SoundBloc fixed to the resilient bars.
