Metal Building Material Angled acoustic Impaling insulation clip panel
Impaling clips are used to easily attach Acoustic Panels (703 Board) to walls. Each clip has 8 spikes that stick into the fiberglass panel backing and hold the panel in place. The dimensions of the clips are 2-1/8" x 1-1/2". The impaling clips are installed on the wall by either 1 drywall screw (not included) or attached with adhesive (Multi-Seal 180). 4-6 impaling clips are recommended per standard 2' x 4' panel making sure one impaling clip is placed in each corner. For panel applications requiring an air gap, wood spacer blocks can be installed between the acoustic panel mounting hardware and the drywall to keep the panel spaced off of the wall.
1. Determine the location of your panel and have one person hold it up in place while the other person makes a light mark on the wall to show all 4 corners.
2. Attach 4 Impaling Clips approx 3" off each corner edge and an optional 2 more impaling clips 3" in from the edge of the center of the panel. Acoustic panel mounting hardware should be screwed into the studs, so moving the clips a little to hit a stud is recommended. If screwing into a stud is not possible, use a drywall anchor type screw to ensure a proper hold.
3. For permanent placement, use adhesive on the wall to stick the back of the panel to the wall (adhesive such as Multi-Seal 180 is recommended).
4. While using a level on the top of the panel, line up the acoustic panel and when ready, press the panel into the Impaling Clips.
