Metal Stud and plasterboard partitions have become a first-choice option in many modern construction projects. It is a more cost-effective option than timber battons. The speed of construction, lightweight materials and versatility delivers cost effective results.
How do metal stud partitions work?
Metal stud partitions are available in sizes 50mm, 70mm, 92mm and 146mm steel studs that fit into 52mm,72mm, 94mm or 148mm tracks respectively. Then one or two layers of plasterboard are fixed to either side of the studwork. Various types of insulation can also be used within the partition to enhance insulation and/or reduce noise.
Studs can be placed closer together to provide additional support. Drywall partitions can be finished by either tape and jointing or plastering.
There are various types of metal stud systems used to create a framework which plasterboard is fixed. Metal stud frameworks can be used in vertical wall (Partitions/Wall Linings) or horizontal ceiling applications (MF Ceilings).
