QuietZone systems have been designed to reduce unwanted
noise from specific areas of a home. There are three QuietZone
ceiling systems designed to suit varying budgets and design considerations
- these three systems are identified as "Quiet", "Quieter"
Building a QuietZone ceiling requires a little more care
and attention to detail than standard systems. Each component
in a QuietZone System must be securely fixed, necessary
services strategically placed and all plasterboard perimeter edges
and openings adequately sealed.

Limited trading as Insulation Solutions.
Boral Acoustic Ceiling Mount
The Boral Acoustic Ceiling Mount is used in the QuietZone
systems and provides a cost effective solution to impact sound
insulation for ceilings direct fixed or suspended to either concrete
soffits, timber floor joists, roof purlins and the like.
Acoustic Ceiling Mount significantly reduces transmission of impact
sound from many common sources including:
typical applications for the Boral Acoustic Ceiling Mount are
in multi-residential apartment construction, cinemas, and areas
below a plant room.
Easy and quick to install;
Suspended application does not need additional fixings;
Acoustic Ceiling Mount can be slid along the top cross
rail which allows for easy re-positioning;
Minimises low frequency thumps generated from
footfalls on timber floors;
Rubber Element is colour coded for easy identification
of load range; and
High load capacity minimises number of Acoustic Ceiling
Mounts required per square metre.
The Boral Acoustic Ceiling Mount is designed for use in Rondo's
Key-Lock Ceiling Suspension System. Refer to the Rondo catalogue
for the spanning and spacing options for furring channels and primary
Direct Fix Application
Furring Channel Clip;
Rubber Element; and
Screw (supplied by others):
- 14-10 x min. 65 mm Type 17 roof screw into timber;
- 12 or 14 gauge x min. 45 mm drill point roofing screw into light
gauge steel; or
- Tapcon screw into concrete.
Assemble the mount as shown in the following illustration.
Screw fix the mount via the central hole in the rubber element.
For fire-rated ceilings, a 25 mm diameter x 2 mm steel washer is
required under the fastener head.
2. Use a suitable power tool with an appropriate hex driver and
tighten the fastener to a point where there is no compression of
the rubber element. Check the pull-out capacity of fastener to ensure
correct size is selected.
3. Clip furring channel into the Furring Channel Clip.
