Partition walls: types, materials and cost of partition walls

Articles > Partition walls: types, materials and cost of partition walls

Introduction to Partition Walls:

Partition Walls also called Stud Walls are unloaded walls intended to separate apart within a building, to form an interior room/cabinet, or to separate the laundry area from the rest of the building. Since partitioning walls can be loaded with a roof, therefore, they are built solely for the purpose of partitioning. They are not as strong as all the other loaded walls. The partition wall has 12 types. Each type is distinguished from the other on the basis of the materials used in it. Therefore, the definition of each type is a description of the materials used in partition walls.

Different Types of Partitioning Walls:

1. Partitioning of brick walls:

The purpose of a brick wall is similar to that of other types of walls, such as separating one part of a building from another, separating a room, making one interior cabinet, separating one part of that part from another. A brick dividing wall was built with the task of building bricks. A brick wall takes a lot of time to build. Not suitable for the earthquake zone. The advantage of a brick partition wall is that it is not expensive.

2. Partitioning walls made of certified bricks:

Reinforced bricks are made of reinforced material to add strength to bricks. This type of wall is very strong and durable. The disadvantage of this type of walls is that these walls are heavy and use a lot of load on the floor.

3. Differing a Wall made with Hollow & Clay Brick:

Empty concrete is made of units of concrete and clay bricks are made only of clay. Since these types of bricks are empty on the inner side, so they are lightweight and do not put a lot of load on the floor. This is cheaper to build, but not as strong as reinforced partition walls.

4. Partition wall by concrete material:

Concrete separating concrete is made of concrete made of stone, sand, and cement. Sometimes iron/steel rods are inserted into the concrete material to strengthen it further. Like a brick wall, and a reinforced brick wall, this too is very strong, but still places a heavy load on the lower floor.

5. Glass made Partitions Wall:

The glass partition is made of glass. Thick glass panels or hollow glass blocks are used to create this type of wall. Most glass used for partition walls may be made of opaque glass or other adhesive adhesives are attached to the glass wall to protect privacy.

6. Grass Boards as Building Blocks of Partitions Walls:

These types of walls are easily moved from one place to another. Grass boards are less expensive and weigh less. These are not built permanently but are placed in one place and in time these walls are moved to another location.

7. Partition walls made of Paris cement and burnt minerals:

This type of wall is made of Paris plaster plates or burnt minerals. This is very easy to build, but it does not last very long. These types of walls are well built and their finish is very smooth. These types of walls are easily built and easily demolished.

8. Different Walls Made with Metal Lath:

Steel frames or planks are used to fix metal parts. These steel straps are tight, strong, and durable. Lath is fastened with steel wire attached to soft metal bars or channels separated by 15 to 30 cm. These metal bars are attached to the farm on both sides to protect from heat and compaction.

9. Walls built with A.C. & G.I Spreadsheets:

These sheets are cut with wood or metal strips to create a texture on both sides. These sheets are economical, lightweight, and durable. Each slab has a basic or metal asbestos cement sheet (5mm) with a plain asbestos cement sheet (10mm) attached to that in any part.

10. Partition Walls made up of Wood:

Wood partition walls are also strong, durable, and economical. Wood partition walls can be repaired or moved. If the wall cannot be moved, it should have a di-pode stand.

11. Wooden Partition Walls:

Wood is the name of the wood used in the USA. The wooden partition is a wooden frame supported by a floor or sidewalls. The structure consists of a solid arrangement of wooden parts, which can be plastered or boarded up, etc. on each side. Not them.

12. Abestos Partition Walls:

Asbestos is a silicate mineral, used for construction purposes. Like the Paris plaster, it is easy to build and can be easily constructed. Another advantage of Asbestos Cement is water resistance. Asbestos cement sheets are laid with wooden or metal frames.

13. Double glazed windows as Partition Walls:

It is used as acoustic insulation. Two panels are placed at a distance of 50 mm. The space is full of air. The air contained in the middle of the small spine is a kind of 'firmness' and transmits vibrations in low waves. Specific members give the program a glossy "flawless" look. Glossy partition walls are widely used in all offices, private meeting places, and board rooms.

Types of Materials used in Partition Walls:

The partition walls mentioned above are of different types. This section is based on the material used for each type of partition wall. The durability and cost also vary with each type of wall. Walls made of concrete and reinforced concrete or steel materials are stronger than the walls built by Asbestos and the Plaster of Paris. The attractiveness and beauty of the wall also depend on the type of material used. There are some dividing walls that are not built with individual materials. They are made of composite materials. Using composite materials can add strength, beauty, and durability to walls.
