So set out at say 400 centres on a 6m ceiling your getting £9 but on a linear at a £1 he will get £15? Or maybe £18 depending on the lay out, am I missing something?

90p lineal meter works out better than £150m2 mate as flynnyman pointed out , this is site prices and there's no middle man

Same thing kev all it is,is metal lenghts of track and you screw It to joists or plywood on walls thus acting as a sound barrier and then double boarded with soundblock or normal boards pending budget as we are doing it at min but using plain boards instead of soundblock thank god..its a load of bolloxs kev but u can earn gud dosh

You have to use the correct length screws so that you don't go through the board and resi bar into the joust, or that defeats the object of doing it. The bar hangs down forming a void of about half an inch between the joist and the back of the board. This acts like an acoustic cushion.

Yes mate I'd done lots of it but didn't know the price of the linear metre I always worked it out how long it would take and priced accordingly [emoji2]
