Plasterboard also distinguished by its high moisture resistance, and hence, with the help of it you can run the partition and in the toilet.

The photo posted below, you can see some samples of partitions of this versatile material.The very process of work with their own hands analyzed in detail in the video.


preview milestone

before will be done with their own hands drywall, it is necessary first of all to think carefully about its design and make a detailed drawing.

For its preparation does not need to make any complicated calculations, but the product should be thoroughly planned.

First we need to move with extreme precision on a piece of paper all the conditions of the room in a certain scale.

Next drawing is drawn on the place where it will be directly carried out the installation of the inner wall.

In the case where the process operations will be erected more separate partitions begin with the drawing, to which would then be attached others.

Similarly performed the frontal image, which will be necessary to specify all the supporting structures.Also at this stage should provide all jumpers.

In order to properly calculate the amount of future posts, you must define the expected load as accurately as possible, which will be provided on a partition during its operation.

should also take into account the fact that the cladding sheets of material it is necessary that their edges were attached to different profiles in the frame structure.

This will maximize evenly distribute the load across the frame area.Also, the drawing must include the design of future partitions and tailored to each decorative element.

Then should be prepared to work all the guide profiles, which at one of their parties should apply a special sealing tape, after which they are fixed firmly on the pre-drawn markings on the floor and on the ceiling.

Fastening profiles to the surface is best done with dowels and screws.

Rack mount profile should be started directly from the wall, the first of them is to abut tightly to its surface.

mounting racks made at the top and bottom of the guide directly.

To improve sound insulation properties of all profiles before mounting their recommended paste sealing tape.

After you have installed and secured extreme rack profile, go to the installation of the rest.

Their number is selected based on the expected load on the partition, and also takes into account its overall design.Next, go to the installation of horizontal crosspieces.


In this case it is necessary to take into account the place of the future joints sheets of material.Also, for added strength throughout the frame structure, it is necessary for the whole of its area to mount the stiffener.

This will help make the partition more stability, as well as enhance its overall reliability.

For more information on how to mount the frame walls with his own hands, you can see on the Photo and Video section.

Casing frame

Before you begin the frame paneling, drywall should be marked properly and carve out in accordance with, as indicated by the drawing.

with sheets of drywall, which will directly form a butt angle should necessarily have an exquisite cut.

Next drywall should be attached in place so that the raw edge of it as accurately coincided with the center of the walking track profile.

Thereafter, the sheet tightly fixed by screws with the same pitch, which is recommended to do with the value of twenty-five millimeters.

for his organization at the place of rack mounted reinforced profile, which further raskreplyayutsya ribs.

also its amplification can be carried out with the help of guides and profiles.In any case, the design should get the most stable and durable.

At the final stage, lining plasterboard surface directly at the very doorway.For more information, described in the video, which is available below.


Additional recommendations

partitions made of gypsum board, have one significant advantage, namely, by design, you can discreetly hide various communication and engineering networks.

Their frame is placed as the plumbing and electrical wiring, and without any effort, and the overall design of this does not change.

laying of communications is recommended at the stage of the assembly of the carcass overall design.

If planned under the plasterboard lining water system, all pipes should be mandatory to wear a special insulation to prevent the formation of condensation in the future.

In turn, the electric wires laid recommended solely horizontally while using the protective sleeve.
