Description

A non-loadbearing, stud partition which provides very high levels of sound insulation. It can be used for space division within critical areas of offices, hotels, schools, hospitals, recreational complexes, shops and conference centres. In industrial units it can be used to isolate machinery noise. In refurbishment work on residential units it can be used as space saving, sound resisting partitions between dwellings.

The system is based on alternate Gypframe 'I' Studs, which are staggered within the floor and ceiling channels, with acoustic insulation suspended in the cavity.

Not suitable for use in areas subjected to continuous damp or humid conditions. Specify MR (moisture resistant) boards in intermittent wet areas.

Performance:

  • Strength and robustness: Satisfies BS 5234 requirements up to Severe Duty.
  • Fire resistance: Up to 90 minutes.
  • Sound insulation, Rw: Up to 63 dB.
