USG Boral Partiwall is an intertenancy solution for separating walls between attached dwellings.
Partiwall is a twin stud wall system, which incorporates a single or double layer of 25mm Shaftliner plasterboard fire barrier panels within the wall cavity. Shaftliner panels are held in position by lightweight steel H- or I-section studs. Installation of Shaftliner fire barrier is carried out during the framing stand and does not require plasterboard screw fixing, jointing, or finishing. The internal wall linings are installed at the plastering stage using conventional installation methods.
Partiwall permits easy incorporation of services and does not require penetration and perimeter treatment associated with traditional fire-rated systems.
Partiwall was developed to suit the normal pattern of construction and follow-up trades.
USG Boral Partiwall Intertenancy Wall Systems have been appraised for use as fire-rated and sound-insulation rated walls between household units within the following scope:
In the opinion of BRANZ, USG Boral Partiwall Intertenancy Wall Systems, if designed, used, installed and maintained in accordance with the statements and conditions of BRANZ Appraisal 898 (2015), will meet the following provisions of the NZBC:
The Partiwall System does not require maintenance but USG Boral recommends that a visual check of the wall is undertaken when the opportunity arises.
In the event that moisture gets into the cavity then the lining must be removed and the Partiwall inspected, as moisture may cause degradation to the structural integrity of the Shaftliner or Firestop.
USG Boral manufacture and supply plasterboard systems, membrane roof boards, steel partitions and suspended ceilings.Product Enquiries
