Metal Stud Partitioning has been an industry that has been around for some time. It is a basic sturcture of a 50mm metal stud covered with either 1 or 2 payers of plasterboard on each side of the stud. The center cavity can also be sound proofed by inserting a layer of fibreglass insulation. Metal Stud Partitioning UK

What is so good about metal stud partitioned walls?
Metal stud is by far much lighter than timber stud, easier to cut with a pair of tin-snips, and easier to fit. This will reduce the amount of time needed to fit a metal stud wall as compared to a timber stud wall. Fitting a metal stud wall is also much cleaner that fitting a timber stud wall as the workplace is not littered with shavings and bits of cuts.
Once the stud wall is in place then it can be fitted with door frames and plasterboards with gyproc drywall screws into the metal stud. The plasterboard can either be skimmed or joint taped to a finish and also insulated for sound proof and heating.
Equipment used (depending on contract work):
- 50mm Gypframe Standard Floor and Ceiling Channel
- 48 mm Gypframe C Stud
- Gyproc Lining Board
- Gyproc Drywall Screws
- Gyproc Wafer Head Drywall Screws
