Frequently asked question

How do you build a fire-rated partition where access is limited to one side only?

Our ShaftWall system provides a lightweight, fire resistant structure to protect elements in confined spaces wherever access is limited to one side only. The system comprises Gypframe 'I' Studs and Gypframe Starter Channels within Gypframe Floor & Ceiling Channels. The non-accessible (shaft) side boards (Gyproc CoreBoard) are retained between the Gypframe Floor & Ceiling Channels and adjacent studs using Gypframe Retaining Channels without the boards needing to be screw fixed, this enables construction from only one side if required. Please refer to White Book Chapter 05 Section 02 Page 02 for more details.
