You create extra space with a partition. For a study, for example, or a children’s room. But partitions have more functions. A low partition can be purely decorative. A glass partition can serve as a shower enclosure. A partition wall becomes sound-proof with insulating material between the plaster boards.
A dividing wall of plasterboard
Plasterboard or Gyproc is the most commonly used material for partition walls. Such a wall is very lightweight, so you can place it on any surface without any problem. The construction is simple. The plates are screwed on two sides to a framework of wooden slats or metal racks. You can apply insulation material between the plasterboards. After sealing the joints with a filler, you can tile, plaster or wallpaper the wall as desired.
Special moisture-resistant plasterboards are available for wet areas.
Wood instead of Gyproc
You can also use plywood, chipboard or MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) instead of plasterboard. You do this in the same way. You can read more about glue laminated timber manufacturer in our blog.
A partition of aerated concrete blocks
Aerated concrete blocks – or aerated concrete blocks – are large, lightweight building blocks that allow you to quickly build a partition wall. They are available in different sizes, with a thickness of 5 to 10 cm, a width of 60 cm and a height of 20 or 40 cm. There are even quarter-round aerated concrete blocks for sale, with which you can make a round wall.
You can glue aerated concrete blocks with a suitable adhesive. Cutting to size is best with a special aerated concrete saw , which has extra hardened teeth.
A wall of aerated concrete blocks is moisture resistant, heat insulating and fire resistant. Because it is easy to tile, it is ideal for damp rooms in the house.
Tip: If you want to drill in aerated concrete, do not use a masonry drill or concrete drill, but an iron drill. And choose a drill bit that is 1mm smaller than the size of the plug. Visit wood panels nz.
A partition of glass building blocks
A glass partition is decorative and ensures that no light is lost. Glass building blocks are available in different shades and in both matt and clear versions. For a square meter you need 25 bricks.
You can build such a decorative glass wall in two ways: bricklaying with special masonry mortar for glass building blocks, or with a so-called fast construction system, which consists of plastic plastic profiles that you finish with silicone sealant.
