I routinely hang soffits off of decoupled drywall ceilings, Not a problem. A screen wall would be easy. Nearly all of the screen walls I've built have been below decoupled ceilings. What do you see as the issue?

I was just concerned about wedging a wall between the floor and decoupled ceiling might compress the RISC clips and no longer decouple the ceiling?


I guess this is where the comment "measure twice, cut once" comes into play

I don't think I ever stopped in here to say "Thanks!" to @BIGmouthinDC for the screenwall idea. Worked like a champ when I built mine about a year ago.

Thanks!

You shouldn't need it super tight like you would want in a support wall. If it is a little lose you could use some shims, that way you won't be pushing on the DD and channel, but I would think it would take a lot to compress them. If you have to beat the wall into place, it it to tight for false wall in my opinion.

you could put a thick rubber pad under the base and between the top and the ceiling if you want to do everything you can to keep everything decoupled. Another option would be rubber on the bottom, and secure the top with an appropriate RSIC clip. IMHO this is an over the top strategy. But this forum is full of over the toppers. I'm usually standing below cheering them on.

I really like Big's approach to the modified minimized approach used in the White Oaks build. No goal posts, just upper and lower brackets. This would eliminate your concern.
