Rubber Stud Isolators are an affordable, easy-to-install, and effective way to decouple walls and ceilings for vibration and sound control. Simply attach to studs and continue construction to experience improved performance with any building method.


Stud isolators are made of extruded rubber and are shaped to fit and isolate wood beams in floors and ceilings as well as wall studs.

The isolators are 2-1/8″ wide × 1-1/2″ high × 2″ long and come in black.


Installation is simple due to their 'friction fit' quality - simply place the stud isolators over the stud or beam faces and continue construction.  Install the stud isolators spaced 16″ on center.


  • "Damping Shoes" support and acoustically isolate floor framing members (ie. Joists)
  • Extruded EPDM rubber formulated to reduce or eliminate vibrations
  • Shaped to accomodate standard joist dimensions

  • Great question, John. These stud isolators do provide 1/2" of isolation, so if you using them on the top and bottom of the stud, they would take up one inch of space.

  • So if I use these stud isolators under my drywall, it will decouple the wall from the stud and make my room sound proof?

  • Hi Patrick,

    The stud isolators will not make your room completely soundproof, but will help with a specific kind of noise. The stud isolators keep your studs from contacting the sub floor and/or ceiling. This keeps vibration and therefore structure borne noise from transmitting from floor to wall, wall to ceiling or floor, etc. So this will help diminish the spread of impact noise on these surfaces, and some low frequency vibration as well. To stop the transmission of high to mid frequencies you should think about adding mass or sound damping materials.

  • If you use the isolators as shoes to isolate wall studs, how do you attach the wall studs to the baseplate and topplate? do the nails go through the baseplate, through the isolator, and then through the wall stud? If so, doesn't that make the stud no longer isolated?

  • Hi Jamie,

    The rubber stud isolators are not meant to completely isolate a studded wall structure. You will still need to fasten the wall structure in place. The rubber stud isolators are meant to reduce the surface area the of the studded structure but not to fully decouple or isolate it. You would use a resilient sound isolation clip system to fully decouple a wall structure. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any more questions: 800 782 5742
