Resilmount A50R – Resilient Sound Isolation Hangers

When selecting hangers, it is recommended that the calculated mass of the ceiling system is increased by 10-20% to avoid overloading of the isolation element. If maximum rated deflections are required, the ceiling system needs to be accurately weighed and point loads assessed in accordance with the architectural specifications of the project.

The site contractor can undertake normal installation procedures of the suspended ceiling system. Once the hanging wire has been hung from the substrate, the lower end of the wire needs to be bent up in accordance with the ceiling system manufacturers specifications, providing a ‘hook’ on which the Resilmount™ Type A50R can be hung. Once the mount is in place, another section of hanging wire is required to be bent and inserted through the lower side of the Resilmount™ Type A50R. The shaft of this wire then becomes the mounting point for the ceiling suspension clip.

FEATURES:

• Easily installs with all types of hanger wire.

• Can be used in new or existing ceiling systems.

• Acoustically tested for STC and IIC.

• Does not reduce the load capacity of the ceiling system.

• The hanger isolates the ceiling system from the structure to reduce structure and airborne noise.

INSTALLATION NOTES:

When selecting hangers, it is recommended that the calculated mass of the ceiling system is increased by 10-20% to avoid overload of the isolation element. If maximum rated deflections are required, the ceiling system needs to be accurately weighed and point loads assessed in accordance with the architectural specifications of the project. The first length of wire is hung from the base building from an approved fastener (by others). The bottom of this wire is bent up and the A50R isolator is installed on the wire and secured by twisting the wire back on itself by at least 3 full turns in a 3” length (consult local codes). A new length of wire is installed to the bottom of the A50R isolator in the same manor. The site contractor can proceed with normal installation of the suspended ceiling system once the wires and A50R isolators have been installed.
