Floor Joist Isolators are a U-shaped isolation product constructed from a medium density thermoplastic which is designed to isolate vibration and structural noise transmission. Floor Joist Isolators improve a flooring assembly’s Sound Transmission Class (STC) and Impact Insulation Class (IIC) by decoupling the flooring from the structural supports which provides a reduction of sound transmission, especially the hard to control low frequency sounds. The Stud Beam Isolators are sized to fit any 2X lumber product, are very easy to install and are best used for new construction when floor joists are exposed.

Features / Benefits
Good Soundproofing Performance — Floor Joist Isolators are attached to floor joists in order to structurally isolate floor surfaces, including substrates, from the structural support elements. They are a cost effective product that reduces sound transmission through floor or ceiling assemblies. Floor Joist Isolators are perfect for applications that use the “Box in a Box” or “Room in a Room” construction methods commonly used when building a professional home theater or recording studio environment.
Quality — Floor Joist Isolators are made from a medium density thermoplastic that is commonly used to make vibration isolation feet or vibration damping pads for large industrial machinery. The raw material is a time tested vibration isolating material.
Ease of Installation — Floor Joist Isolators are friction fit over any wood with a 2 inch width (actual width equals 1.5”). No messy glues or adhesives are needed to install is product. No tools required!
Cost Effective Soundproofing — Floor Joist Isolators are our most cost effective sound isolation product due to the ease of installation. Labor costs are minimal to install this product.
Light Weight and Low Profile — Floor Joist Isolators are designed to provide effective soundproofing performance with minimum added weight and thickness. The low profile maximizes valuable square footage.
In-stock — We stock Floor Joist Isolators in large quantities. Most orders are filled and shipped the same day the product is ordered.
