The RC-1 Boost is designed for use with any wood or steel application where noise control is required. This includes, wood framed or steel framed wall and ceiling systems. The RC-1 Boost product decouples the gypsum board from the structure, giving the assembly enhanced acoustical performance. With an Acoustical design load rating of 18 lbs per isolator, the RC-1 Boost clip can support up to two layers of 5/8" gypsum board when spaced no more that 16" x 24" oc. Final spacing [of the RC-Boost isolators is determined by the UL Fire Resistive Design specifications. The RC-1 Boost clip Wraps around the screw edge of standard RC channel. The RC-1 Boost is screwed to the framing using the PAC International supplied RC-1 Boost Screw. No substitutions allowed. The RC-Boost decouples the gypsum board from the structure stopping STC and IIC vibrations from entering the space adjacent. RC-1 Boost screw specifically designed to enhance the acoustical performance of the RC-1 Boost isolator. No substitutions allowed.
