75mm Solid Module using 50mm Vertical Stud, Plaster Shadow Head Trim (code SA13) & Skirting (code SA14) with Taped / Filled Plasterboard Joints

SA Solutions’ ‘Seamless Abutments’ single layer plasterboard partitions partitioning system solid module with an overall thickness of 75mm is constructed by using SA Solutions 50mm galvanised steel stud (code 853), ‘U’ channel head / base track (code 835) and horizontal fixing strap (code DM53GF1) that are fixed to the supporting structure at 600mm centres. The vertical studs are cut a nominal 18mm short of the floor to ceiling height and positioned at 600mm centres with a single skin of 12.5mm thick taper edge plasterboard screw fixed each side using BZP finished 25mm long drywall screws (code SA319 ) at 300mm centres. The vertical board joints are then obscured by means of taped and wet plaster filling across the butt joint taper section of the plasterboards to mask the screw fixings. The partition cavity was filled with SA Solutions’ 60mm thick Crown factory clad (code 880).

The Seamless Abutments Single Layer Fire Rated Plasterboard Partitions head shadow trim (code SA13) and skirting (code SA14) plaster mouldings are screw fixed using BZP finished 25mm long drywall screws (code SA319 ) at 300mm centres to the ‘U’ channel head/base track (code 835) and the fixing strap (code DM53GF1). The horizontal joints between the plasterboard and the plaster mouldings are then obscured by means of taped and wet plaster filling across the butt joint section.

The construction has been tested in accordance with:

British Standard 476: Part 22: 1987

and is described within The Building Test Centres Report No. BTC 17322F

and International Fire Consultants Ltd Field of Application Report PAR/10876/01

Single Layer Plasterboard Partitions

Seamless Abutments single layer plasterboard partitions solid fire performance partition must be constructed with the use of intumescent mastic at the abutments.

It is important that the type size and fitting detail for the foams and intumescent seals remains as tested. These products can often exhibit significantly different characteristics which could alter the performance obtained during the test and therefore they must not be considered interchangeable, irrespective of whether the individual product has been tested and dimensions are maintained.

The Seamless Abutments single layer plasterboard partitions solution also provides acoustic performance and also being an insulation solution with insulation board preventing conventional heat loss and energy efficient, exceeding fire tests of fire protection of 30 minutes, combined with fire doors for passive fire protection and both being rated systems. unlike most cavity walls or insulation products.
