The elastic connection is the recommended standard design because it can compensate smaller structural deformation (e.g. bending of the ceiling) and, through the high damping of structure-borne noise offers the best acoustic insulation.
The most important components of the elastic connection are the edge connecting strips made of
- Polyethylene low expansion foam (MultiGips AkustikPro 120)
- Compressed cork
- Bitumen felt (MultiGips AkustikBit 1000)
- Rock wool (in case of fire protection requirements)
The use of MultiGips FG Füllgips is recommended at the ceiling connection. Its special composition prevents cracks due to too rapid deflagration and through this ensures a crack-free connection.
