Installation: Dynil Sound Barrier is designed to be installed during
the construction or remodeling of your home & commercial dwellings. Dynil is
installed between the wall/ceiling studs & sheet rock, and between floor joists
& sub floors on floors. Cut Dynil to length with a razor knife or scissors.
Dynil allows for quick installation with standard construction staples.
- Wall Installation: Measure the height of your studs. Cut Dynil to
this length. On standard wall construction, attach the 54" wide material
across four studs (48" across) allowing the material to drape between the
studs. On staggered wall construction, weave Dynil in and out between the
studs. Fasten to studs with standard staple gun. Attach drywall according to
- Floor Installation: Measure length of room perpendicular to
joists. Cut Dynil to this length. Apply before underlayment installation.
The maximum roll length is 25 ft. For floors longer than 25 ft, overlap the
material 2". Position the 54" wide material across 48" of floor joists and
fasten with standard staple gun. Attach sub-floor according to
- Ceiling Installation: Measure the length of ceiling along the
rafters. For regular ceilings, cut Dynil slightly larger than the spacing
between rafters. Attach Dynil with a standard staple gun between rafters so
that it sags 2" from the mounting points. Finish drywall ceiling according
to manufacturer's instructions. For resilient channel or drop ceilings,
attach Dynil across the rafters with a standard staple gun so that is sags
0.5" from the mounting points. Finish drywall or install drop panels
according to manufacturer's instructions.
