2020 Winner



SoundGuard Silent Steel Framing System

Improves Productivity

“SoundGuard replaces traditional double studded walls (chase or other) with a single stud configuration. It is much faster to install a single stud. Additionally, bracing and resilient channel are not needed allowing the contractor to construct the walls faster.”

A Testimonial

“Job Details: Bozeman High School in Bozeman, Mt. SoundGuard was used for partition and corridor walls. The Sound Guard studs performed great during our sound tests of the classrooms. We tested above our spec, even with dozens of MEP wall penetrations at our worst case scenario. Lead time and delivery was shorter than expected, and the gaskets hold true through shipment, off-loading, storage, stocking and install.”
