Ceiling/Wall Gap Spacer for Eliminating Flanking Paths
Space Assurance™ is a flexible, flame-resistant polyester fabric used as a fastener line, ensuring the proper detail between the wall and ceiling. Space Assurance™ eliminates a common path for noise flanking in multi-family construction.
Flanking noise is often caused by improper detailing of the gypsum wall and ceiling. The proper detail is to leave a 0.125” space and then caulk the joint. This installation detail is difficult to install and difficult to ensure.
