Using Fermacell Boards on either metal or timber partitions provides properties associated with solid masonry with the flexibility and speed of drywall, with a construction that is often thinner, quicker and cheaper to install than both.
This is largely achievable due to the all round performance of the Fermacell Boards that provide superior fire, acoustic and impact performance that eliminates wet trades making practical, technical and commercial sense.
Metal Stud Partitions
Fermacell Boards are fixed to DIN Standard steel studs, which have a 0.6 mm gauge metal thickness with a 50 mm fixing face allowing a versatile, high performing and cost effective solution for domestic to commercial applications often achieving superior fire, acoustic and impact resistance over drywall construction. The excellent screw retention properties of Fermacell means that significantly fewer noggings or plywood is needed for dead load fixtures and fittings; this also allows intersecting partitions to be started from any point.
Timber Stud Partitions
These are more commonly used in domestic applications. Timber partitions provide versatility and performance including racking strength for timber framed properties. The ability of Fermacell to be stapled to timber studs means increased speed of fixing.
Twin Frame Systems
Fermacell partitions achieve a number of advantages over masonry construction by reducing the weight, build time and cost often associated with masonry construction. We offer a number of Robust Detail compliant solutions.
