Weight of Soundproof Plasterboard on Garage Ceiling

Hi,
I’m building a soundproof room in a garage for a friend, after having done it for myself, but am not sure about the ceiling. I was planning to use two layers of acoustic plasterboard (roughly 40kg per 2.4x1.2m), with rock wool in the middle. The joists in the garage are similar to this:

Would that be too much mass for the joists, or would it be okay?
