GenieClip® RST

An innovative, affordable and reliable sound solution GenieClip RST is engineered for superior acoustic performance in reducing the transmission of airborne and impact sound through wall and floor/ceiling assemblies.

GenieClip RST is a unibody molded rubber and galvanized steel part used to attach plasterboard to either wall or floor/ceiling assemblies. Made from recycled components, and engineered to allow reduction in assembly weight.

Significantly improve low frequency sound control performance
Substantially improve impact noise and help stop sound travelling through walls and floor/ceiling construction
Allow for thinner and even no resilient mat used in certain floor/ceiling assemblies
Substantially reduce costs and associated problems in wood truss floor/ceiling construction and still meet code for fire and sound control—great for multi-family construction

EASY TO INSTALL

GenieClip RST is easy and fast to install using Pliteq’s proprietary steel furring channel and is extremely stable when held in place with a single fastener. There is nothing to adjust or site fit. The furring channel is simply snapped into the GenieClip RST and the plasterboard can be immediately installed.

Only one screw required to attach metal clip to wood or metal wall studs or floor joists.

Engage the furring channel into either claw, then squeeze channel to engage the claw.
