Party Wall Systems

Gyprock Party Wall Systems are designed to provide a separating wall between dwellings that are side-by-side such as town houses. The systems feature discontinuous construction and offer acoustic performance to a standard of Rw+Ctr 50.

The systems are also fire resistant (FRL 60/60/60) and offer the added benefit of design freedom – achieved with double load bearing walls (when supporting non-fire rated structures only). The design allows services including water and electricity to be run within the wall frame, without affecting the system’s performance.

Application

Gyprock Party Wall Intertenancy systems are designed as separating walls for class 1 and 10 buildings. Systems are available for steel and timber framed buildings with FRL 60/60/60 and sound ratings to meet BCA requirements and offer the flexibility of internal linings to cover individual room needs.

The systems are lightweight and can be installed rapidly without the use of wet trades. They have some elements that are common to the adjoining buildings, and are suitable for buildings with shared title on single allotments.
