Understanding ShaftWall: System performances and detailing

23 Jul 2024
Fully Booked

Gyproc ShaftWall partition systems are somewhat unique given that they are a special type of lightweight metal stud system that can be constructed entirely from one side but offer claimed performance characteristics in both. Generally used where fire resistance performance is critical and access to construct a metal stud partition system from both sides is restricted, there is often at least one suitable requirement for a ShaftWall systems to be included as part of the overall project package. 

This presentation will provide an overview of the key information to give all members of the project design and installation teams the knowledge to correctly specify, construct and sign off Gyproc ShaftWall systems. Covering the unique performance qualities of the asymmetric partition system and relevant limitations. The presentation will look at the required Gyproc components and how they should be installed and address common details which require special consideration when applied to a ShaftWall system.  

All our Technical Academy Online courses are being run through MS Teams and require registration which can be undertaken in a few easy steps by clicking the link below/above. Participants do not need to have MS Teams installed on their devices to attend the webinar. 

Each webinar will include the described presentation with sufficient time also allowed to ask the presenter questions. Questions will be directed to the presenter through the systems chat facility and will be anonymised when responded to.
