Entry Level Sound Insulation Panel System

ZIPS-Vector system is mounted without a frame directly onto the surface of walls and ceilings. Improves sound insulation by 12-14 dB Operating range of the system is from 125 Hz. Allows to eliminate sounds such as neighbors talking, dogs barking, sound from radio/TV, etc.

Eight Special Vibration Joints

ZIPS Vector panels are attached to walls and ceiling slabs by special vibration joints that prevent transmission of noise from the insulated surface to the outside of the structure.

Unique design of vibration joints and the method of ZIPS panels attachment through these joints are patented.

Additional Sound Insulation for Walls and Ceilings of up to 14 dB

The use of lightweight sound-absorbing and heavy sound-reflecting layers in the panels, as well as the absence of rigid connections in the form of framework, ensure efficient reduction of transmitted sound waves.

Additional airborne sound isolation value for ZIPS Vector system is from 12 to 14 dB.

Features of the material usage, ready-to-use soundproofing structures and examples of implemented projects can be found in the "Usage" tab.

ZIPS Vector Foam concrete, brick, tongue-and-groove block ΔRw up to 12-14 dB 53 Talking, TV, radio The thinnest panel of the ZIPS family. More often is used for sound-insulation of walls and partitions.
ZIPS Modul Brick, concrete ΔRw = 16-18 dB 83 Loud talking, shouting, TV, dog barking, water noise Effective system, suitable for solution of 80% of all household noise issues
ZIPS Cinema Concrete, brick ΔRw = 19-20 dB 133 Loud talking, shouting, TV, dog barking, water noise, noise from a loud audio system or a home theater The most effective sound-insulating system in the entire ZIPS range. When you use this system, it means that everything that can be done has been done.
ZIPS III-Ultra Foam concrete, brick, concrete ΔRw = 16-18 dB 55 Loud talking, shouting, TV, dog barking, water noise The ultimate system in terms of the thickness/efficiency ratio. Despite being thin, it ensures great additional sound insulation and is suitable for 80% of tasks.
ZIPS-4 Foam concrete, brick, concrete ΔRw = 16-19 dB 55-105 Loud talking, shouting, TV, dog barking, water noise Family flagship . This system is for those who value their time and money. It not only ensures top efficiency despite its lesser thickness, but also allows to level the surface using adjusting supports, thus avoiding wet processes.
ZIPS Slim Foam concrete, aerated concrete, tongue-and-groove block ΔRw = 11 dB 37.5 Conversations, TV, radio The thinnest panel of ZIPS family. It is used for sound insulation of inter-flat walls made of foam concrete with a thickness of < 200 mm

Maintenance info

Composition and description

ZIPS Vector sound-insulating panel system consists of 40 mm (1.6 in) thick ZIPS 4 sandwich panels and special 12.5 mm (0.5 in) thick finishing plasterboard sheets. The total thickness of the system is 52.5 mm (2 in).

ZIPS Vector sandwich panels are a combination of layers of moisture-resistant gypsum plasterboard and fiberglass plate. Each sandwich panel includes eight vibration insulating joints for installation on the surface.


ZIPS Vector panels must be stored in dry, enclosed premises, away from any precipitation.

The panels should be stacked horizontally on wooden pallets, boards or other padding materials to avoid sagging.

Features of the material usage

ZIPS Vector sound-insulating panel system is used for additional sound insulation of single-layer construction structures: walls and ceilings. Mounted without a frame.

Do not use the system for partitions and ceilings less than 80 mm (3 in) thick.

Marko Stošić 23 November 2022
Can I install ZIPS Vector if my renovation is already finished? Plaster, putty, and non-woven wallpaper have been already applied to the wall and parquet flooring has been installed. Still, I want to soundproof an adjoining wall.
Expert answer

Yes, you can install the ZIPS Vector panel system even if your renovation has already been finished. You can install it directly onto the wall. You do not have to remove the wallpaper. You just need two layers of Ultrakustik Tape 100 laid along the perimeter. The sound-insulating lining should be brought up to the ceiling overlap and rest on the floor screed (the finish coating should be cut off).

Can I mount a TV stand onto ZIPS Vector?
Expert answer

Yes, you can. Most household hanging items fit inside the maximum load of 50 kg (110 lbs.) per linear meter that may be attached to the ZIPS structure.

Marek 23 November 2022
Is any gap between tongue-and-groove sheets of ZIPS Vector panels allowed?
Expert answer

Yes, a gap not exceeding 5 mm (0.2 in) is allowed. In this case, the gap can be sealed with Ultrakustik VS sealant.

Master 23 November 2022
How do I install an electrical outlet to the ZIPS structure?
Expert answer

We recommend using surface mounted outlets and switches, while the hole for wires, if laid behind the sound-insulating structure, should be insulated with Ultrakustik VS sealant. If a built-in option is required, then Ultrakustik Box outlet boxes can be used to preserve the efficiency of the design.
