Objectives met


A stud partition is by far the easiest way of dividing one large room into two, and as long as all the principles are understood, planning permission may sometimes be required.

Rockwool Sound Insulation Fire resistance is achieved by using double layers of 12mm extra thick plasterboards with joints staggered

Consideration should be given to any sound or fire resistance

Before constructing any partition, the type of floor that you are building onto is always an important factor.

With a solid floor, the partition can stand anywhere, fixed down using screws and plugs.  (assuming that the floor does not conceal underfloor heating or pipework)


With a suspended wooden floor, the first thing that needs to be established is the direction in which the joists are running and if the floor will support the partition.


If the partition run between two joists, the floorboards in the area should be removed and noggins or trimmers (short length of joists) should be fixed between the joists.

You can use joist hangers at 400mm centres. This must be done to the FULL LENGTH of the partition


If the partition is to be positioned directly over a single joist it is simpler. However if the joist in question does not conform to requirements, then it would need to be reinforced with a second joist (supported from wall to wall) next to it,

Before work begins, checks should be made to ensure that there are no electric cables, water or gas pipes running along or across the joists in the path of the proposed partition, which could be damaged in the course of construction.

Where services are to be found, they should be adequately protected, here we have used “safe plates”

 In

addition to being fixed to the floor, the partition must also be fixed to the ceiling.

The same principles apply regarding floor joist positioning.

 Two

timber sizes are usually used for timber partitioning, 75mm x 50mm or 100mm x 50mm rough sawn timber (whites). 

The plasterboard can be either 12.5 mm, or 9.5 mm in thickness, depending on sound / fire requirements  

Cutting Plasterboard Sheets
Plasterboard sheets are heavy and may bend or snap under their own weight. Handle sheets carefully and make sure they are properly supported prior to scoring.

Place the sheet with the light-coloured face paper side up. Measure and mark the sheet to the size desired.

Cutting Plasterboard Sheets
Line a straight edge up with the marks and hold firmly against the sheet. Draw a pencil line as a guide for scoring. Score through paper and lightly into the core using a drywall or craft knife. Extreme care should be taken when using sharp tools such as these.

The top is called the ‘HEAD PLATE', the bottom is called the ‘SOLE PLATE'


uprights are called the ‘studs'


Noggins are placed horizontally to stiffen the partition and support plasterboard edges

The Studs must be set out so that they correspond to the width of the plasterboards. For this reason, when setting out, one always works to what is known as 'centres'

This means that; at the point where two boards meet, this will be the centre of a stud.

Making a Start (tight areas) Select a straight length of the timber that will be used as the sole plate, and cut it to the required length. Place it in position on the floor, mark for studs and transfer to head plate. Fix a string line the full length of the sole plate (along one edge) to check for it being straight, and adjust at the centre if required before nailing at the middle.

Tight areas

 Place

a short off-cut of the timber that is being used for the studs onto the sole plate near to one wall, and measure up to the ceiling from it.  Do the same at the other end, do not assume that both will be the same length.

 Up

(tight areas)

the Wall Before the head plate can be fixed in position, lift the two end upright studs that will be fixed position is established on the walls by drawing two vertical lines up from each end of the sole plate up to ceiling.

 Their

 Lift

the head plate and place it onto the Studs, carefully raise both the uprights and head plate together, until the head plate is up to the ceiling

 When

studs are in position, secure them to the head and sole by skew-nailing.

 Any

adjustments can be made at ceiling height to make plumb before they are permanently fixed to the walls using screws and plugs

By measuring from one wall, the sole plate can be marked to the width of one board, and 'Centres‘ can be marked off. 

Line board edge studs to centres and adjust until vertical. Skew nail them to the sole plate, then secure to the head, adjusting as necessary so that they are perfectly plumb (vertical).

 When

board edge studs are in place, the intermediate studs can be fitted in the same way so that they are all at either 600mm or 400mm centres.

Having a gauge cut to the exact distance between the studs, and temporarily fixed to the head and sole plate, helps in the correct positioning of the studs, as shown in this illustration.

Each noggin should be measured and cut individually by measuring along the sole plate between the two studs that it is intended for.

 Noggins

are fixed between each stud to the full length of the partition  These should be measured from the sole

 Before

noggins can be fixed, their position must be marked onto the studs, so that they will all be in line.

The size of the plasterboard will determine the height of the noggins.

 The

method for fixing noggins in position can vary, often skew-nailing on one side, and nailing through the other is used.

 Pre

– assembly of studwork is often carried out when there is plenty of room to work in


thing to remember here is the framework should be made with 12-20mm clearance all round depending on how even the walls / ceilings are.
