Types of Non-Load Bearing Partition Non-load bearing partitions can be grouped broadly into two main categories: 1. Timber Stud partitions 2. Proprietary Partition Systems The second category can be subdivided into two types: a). Honeycomb Partition Systems b). Metal Stud Partition Systems Timber Stud Partitions Timber Stud Partitions will usually comprise minimum 63mm x 38mm sill and head plates and 63mm x 38mm studs at maximum 600mm centres, although larger timber section sizes are often used. The partition will be either prefabricated in the case of timber frame building, or site made in the case of masonry building. Plasterboard finishes are fixed directly to the timber framing. 2Typical timber stud partitions weigh about 29.5kg/m .

Timber Stud Partitions Timber Stud Partitions will usually comprise minimum 63mm x 38mm sill and head plates and 63mm x 38mm studs at maximum 600mm centres, although larger timber section sizes are often used. The partition will be either prefabricated in the case of timber frame building, or site made in the case of masonry building. Plasterboard finishes are fixed directly to the timber framing. 2 Typical timber stud partitions weigh about 29.5kg/m.Proprietary Partition Systems Honeycomb Partition Systems These systems are typified by British GypsumPanel Wall (Paramountdry partition) and LafargePanelplusBoth systems comprise a partitions. plasterboard sheet bonded to each face of a cellular core.

Metal Stud Partition Systems These systems are typified by British GypsumGypWallandGypWall RAPIDand LafargeHomespan Partitionsand generally comprise plasterboard sheets fixed to each face of a light gauge steel frame that includes floor and ceiling channels, 2 studs and noggings. The partitions generally weigh from about 25kg/mto about 2 43kg/m .The partitions are installed by fixing the floor and ceiling channels followed by the studs and noggings, to which the plasterboard sheets are then attached.Fixing Partitions to the Floor To ensure the long-term performance of the floor and partition are maintained it is important that all partitions, whether timber stud or proprietary system, are securely fixed to the floor. Fixing should be made through the partition sill or sole plate directly into the joists or noggings. Figure 1 shows typical fixing details. NHBC Standards Section 6.3-S4 shows similar details and states that ‘partitions should be fixed at head and base to noggings or joists.’ Fixingthrough the sill or sole plate into the floor deck is not adequate and could lead to differential movement between the partition and floor that may result in squeaks and disruption to finishes. Proprietary partition system manufacturers also state that the partitions should be fixed to the floor at maximum 600mm spacing.
