How do you extend the length of Gypframe metal stud?

This can be achieved by ‘splicing’ two studs together with an overlap of 600mm minimum, then fixing together using Wafer Head Drywall Screws (two to each flange). Please refer to White Book Chapter 04 Section 01 Page 07 which includes details for Gypframe ‘C’ studs, AcouStuds and ‘I’ studs.

Which partition types provide high acoustic performance with minimum impact to space?

GypWall CLASSIC using Gypframe AcouStuds, GypWall QUIET SF and GypWall STAGGERED are all good options to meet this requirement.
