Timber Stud Partitions
These are more commonly used in domestic applications. Fermacell Timber Stud Partitions provide versatility and performance including Category 1 racking strength for timber framed properties.
The ability of Fermacell to be stapled or nailed to timber studs means a significantly 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. Fermacell also meets Part E and a number of Robust Detail compliant systems as a gypsum based board.
Testing carried out at the CERAM testing centre confirmed that Fermacell can replace timber sheet materials when used in timber frame constructions as the racking board adding lateral structural strength to the building. This means that Fermacell can be used as a dry lining board giving fire and acoustic properties, and a structural board also saving time and money on fixing separate gypsum and timber sheet materials.
