There are 10 steps for this installation:
Appropriate VT V-Wall ‘U’ Tracks are suitably
fixed to the floor and soffit. VT V-Wall 'C'
Studs are suitably fixed to abutments then
fixed to the ‘U’ Tracks at both head and base,
at required centres.
The studs are fixed so as to face the same
direction. Apply Hilti sealant CP 606 to frame
perimeters to provide optimum acoustical
and fire performance.
Door openings are constructed to suit the
width of door. Extra studs should be provided
at openings, and corners. Overboard the
opening, and then cut out to avoid joint
directly in line with door jambs.
M&E services can be located within the partition cavity. The insulation shall be added to
the partition cavity for increasing acoustic
performance. All are normally installed after
one side is boarded. To obtain the optimum
acoustic & fire performance, air tightness is
essential. Board compensation and an insulation material need to be installed at back of
socket boxes. Use appropriate non-combustible material for electric conduit, sockets or
appropriate treatment by M&E contractor.
Fixed Gyproc plasterboards to a metal framework using VT Drywall Screws. For double
layer board lining, the outer layer will be assembled so that subsequent horizontal and vertical
joints are staggered. The security metal sheet
will be cut to appropriate length and installed
between two layers of boards.
Seal any gaps up to 5mm with Hilti Sealant CP
606 or gaps up to 10mm (as maximum) with
Gyp-Filler Jointing Compound.
