Partiwall System – Overview

Partiwall sometimes commonly referred to as Partywall is the perfect solution for partitioning attached dwellings. As the pioneering system of its kind in Australia, the Partiwall system is now one of the most widely-used separating wall systems for attached villa units and townhouse developments. Featuring excellent acoustic performance, easy construction and design friendliness, the Partiwall system is an outstanding choice for projects such as side-by-side duplexes, villa units, and even multi-unit developments.

Essentially, Partiwall is a twin-stud system incorporating either a single or a double layer 25-millimetre SHAFTLINER plasterboard fire barrier contained within the wall cavity, developed to suit the normal framed construction process.
