WHAT IS A PARTITION WALL
Details
Created : 2016-02-16 06:12:52

A partition wall is "an internal wall used for the purpose of subdividing a storey of a building into sections and which supports no load other than its own weight and wall fixtures.

Also, "lightweight material" means:

  • any sheet or board material such as timber board, plywood, fibreboard, plasterboard / gypsum board, corrugated metal sheet or polycarbonate sheet.

  • Partition walls are given grades. These are related to the level of activity in adjacent spaces and the degree of care the partition is likely to receive. Grades are also determined by the structural and functional performances of the partition. 

 

Functional Performance

 

Fire protection

Thermal insulation

Moisture resistance

Water vapour resistance

Sound insulation

Acoustical soundness

Access- door openings- access panels, hatches

Services

Loadings from fitting

Access for services such as electrical ducts etc

Durability

Contamination from dirt, fumes, chemicals, humidity

 

Structural Performance 

Load imposed by partitions

Load imposed by adjacent structure

Structural support and functional areas

Wind loads and air pressure
