IntRwall Separating Wall System
Description

IntRwall is a lightweight separating wall system, suitable for multi-storey apartment buildings.

Based on panelised construction principles, IntRwall is easy and quick to install and does not require heavy lifting equipment.

IntRwall systems utilise 25mm Shaftliner plasterboard panels fitted between steel I-studs. Outer linings each side of the wall are fixed directly to I-studs, or on furring channels or free-standing steel studs. Services are easily incorporated in wall cavities on one or both sides of the wall.

Key Features
  • Panelised lightweight system
  • Fire ratings up to FRR -/120/120
  • Acoustic ratings up to STC 69dB
  • Easy incorporation of services
  • Narrow footprint, maximising living spaces
  • Installation does not require heavy lifting equipment
