1. Ensure joists are level and install the Hush-Bars at 90 degrees to the joists, mounting sufficient spring clips on to each bar to enable the bars to be fixed to joists at 450mm centres.

2. Screw fix the first clip, then slide the next clips along the bar into the required position and secure with the screws supplied. During progression install the connecting sleeves ensuring that an equal amount of sleeve covers each side of the joint.

3. Leave a minimum gap of 15mm at the end of the bar runs and ensure that perimeter bars do not contact the walls.

4. Fix two layers of specified plasterboard to the bars using self drilling drywall screws, staggering all joints and sealing all perimeters with gyproc sealant prior to skimming. Do not allow screws to penetrate in to anything other than the resilient bar.
