Developed decades ago, Resilient Channels are a staple in the multi-family industry. However, there are several installation issues which compromise performance. The design calls for a channel installed with a 1.0  fastener & the typical installation utilizes a 1.25  or 1.50  fastener mostly to help in the “grab.  This minor modification assures that 20% or more of the connections will be compromised & that the performance of the system will cause short circuits. These “shorts  effect the low frequency performance in the system. In many cases, a lab tested 52 becomes a field 42. The resilient channel needs another 5/16  to assure that connections are limited between the gypsum board & the joist assembly. RC Assurance provides that space & the added safety of a hardened steel plate. This unique, patent pending clip acts as an impenetrable washer that puts extra space between the resilient channel & the joist. For the developer, it is the assurance that the RC channels are installed properly. The RC Assurance clip allows the resilient channel to stay resilient after install.
