Timber stud partitions are used in domestic and commercial applications, both in new housing and refurbished housing and in commercial and site applications. Timber studs are typically formed from 3×2 or 4×2 cls and are usually set out at 600mm or 400mm centres. They have gyproc plasterboard sheets fixed to either side of the timber studs and insulation is inserted between the studs if required.
Jumbo studs are typically used in industrial and commercial buildings. Jumbo stud partitioning is built on the same principle as timber stud partitions but is of heavier duty lightweight metal material. They come in various sizes and are built to take heavy duty fire rated plasterboard.
