Noise and vibration easily travel through rigid building elements like bolts, screws, nails, and other mechanical fasteners. Poor design and improper use of mechanical fasteners can create flanking noise paths that short-circuit acoustical treatments.
Don't let mechanical fasteners ruin your acoustical treatment. Use REGUPOL 3D isolation washers to reduce flanking noise transmission. The top-hat design effectively eliminates vibration transfer via decoupling. The bottom shank guides the fastner and prevents contact.
