Track and Stud System including Aluminium Framed Partitions
Track and stud incorporating aluminium framed components is a hugely used system. The C stud system ranges from 48mm up to 146mm studs for varying situations and heights, with standard office partitions usually utilising either the 50mm or 70mm studs.
This is a very versatile system that can incorporate many different layouts, designs and finishes.
- It can be installed in a straight line, multiple changes in direction or to a curve to make the most of the space available.
- Throughout a run in can combine solid modules with individual full height or half glazed modules.
- Be completely full height double glazed with blinds.
- Be single or double glazed and incorporate blinds.
- Solid modules can be finished with paint, paper or vinyl.
A basic run of studwork consists of a metal track that is fixed to the floor and ceiling, with a ceiling track being available to form a clean finish with a suspended ceiling, with metal ‘C’ studs installed at appropriate centres. This is then lined on both sides with one or two layers of plasterboard depending upon its situation and properties.
- The joints of the track and stud system can either be covered with a clip on aluminium section that is available in any RAL colour to carry on a theme or corporate identity, or they can be taped and filled to give a flush seamless finish.
- This system can incorporate both door and glazing modules.
- The glazing has the option of being single, or double glazed and can come equipped with blinds.
- The glazing modules or door frames that can be integrated into this system can be either timber or aluminium, depending upon the aesthetic or specified performance requirement.
- The system is generally finished with a laminate skirting.
These partitions can provide various levels of fire and acoustic performance.
- 30 and 60 minute fire ratings are easily achieved with a 48mm or 70mm c-stud when finished with the correct plasterboards, cavity insulation, glazing and doorsets. Up to 120 minutes is achievable with certain combinations of the system.
- Using mineral fibre cavity insulation and the correct board finish can result in partitions with high acoustic values, with solid partitions being able to offer up to 52dB sound reduction values.
Frameless Glazed Partitioning
We can offer frameless glazed partitioning. This system can help create light, airy and modern looking offices, while still keeping an open plan feel. It can be fitted with blinds if required, and comes with manifestations of any kind, such as your company logo or slogan in order to confirm to building regulations. This system can be created using a fire rated glass when fire rating is a requirement.
The system is made up of a floor and head fixing system which hold the modules in position, and then the joints are filled with a silicon mastic, which help create a frameless appearance. Units can be single or double glazed, and can incorporate blinds.
Composite partitioning is a demountable system that is formed using an aluminium head track and posts, infilled with honeycombed packed plasterboards. It is a system that can incorporate glazing and door modules, and changes of direction with the use of 45 and 90 degree upright posts. The aluminium sections are available in SAA, or with a colour coated finish. This system is widely used as it is cost effective, quick to install and is to a certain degree relocatable.
This system can consist of solid panels, half glazed or full height glazed, or any combination of these.
It doesn’t however have a fire rating, and has very basic acoustic rating values.
We can offer a wide range of steel partitioning systems that are used in industrial situations where a durable and robust system is required, or where a clean or secure environment is needed. The panel modules are available in many different formats: Fully solid, half glazed, half meshed or fully meshed. The system can be be have single or double doors, and can be finished in any RAL colour.
Partition systems can be installed a variety of styles:
There are many different basic visual style of partition available, but the three most common styles are below.
- Solid – This is as simple as it sounds, a solid partition with no windows or glazing in it.
- Half glazed -This is a partition that incorporates some glazing, usually a window (or windows) in the partition; these could be a module wide and about door handle to door head high with solid partition below and above this, or just a simple small window.
- Fully glazed – This is a full height glazed partition, either formed using a partitioning system with full height window mullions or a premium frameless system incorporating a minimalistic frame with silicon gaskets at the glazing joints.
