Single Layer Partition - G1  Series

Single Layer Partition - G1 Series

System Description:

Gypsemna Drywall Partition solutions are non load bearing, light weight, easy to install, yet robust –comprising of plasterboards screw fixed on either side to UC metal structures (Tracks and Studs), with joints taped and filled to get even smooth and homogenous surface.

  • Low weight in comparison to masonry walls of comparable thickness
    • Enhances saving in structural design
    • Suitable for high rise buildings
  • Quick and Easy to install
    • Cost effective
    • Reduced Project completion time
  • Performance
    • Fire protection – up to 1 hrs
    • Sound Insulation – up to 51 dB
    • Enhancement of fire & acoustic performance can be achieved by increasing the number of layers of plasterboards
    • Filling the cavity with insulation enhances the acoustic performance

Used as Partitions in commercial and residential buildings.

G1-Series–partition with single layer boards on either side of the UC metal structure. 


Gypsum Plaster board

Based on the performance requirement, the plasterboard needs to be selected – RG for general applications; MR for humid and aerated area application; FW for enhanced fire resistance; TF for enhanced Impact resistance etc.


Horizontal member of UC metal structure with equal 32mm minimum flange heights. In case of deflection the Top tracks have a flange height of minimum 50mm


Vertical member of UC metal structure with unequal flange heights( suitable for boxing of studs)


Used for fixing the tracks to the slabs and floor respectively

Drywall screws

Used for screw fixing the boards to the metal structures; available as self tapping or self drilling

Joint tape and Filler

Used to get a even smooth and homogenous surface at the joints


Applied at the perimeter areas, to achieve the necessary fire and acoustic performance


Used as cavity infill to enhance sound insulation

Fixing channel / Noggins

Used as backing for horizontal edge cut joints in fire rated partitions

* Stud spacing and metal thickness will be determined by the partition height, deflection limit and lateral pressure. Min. recommended metal thickness is 0.55mm for fire rated partitions.
