Drywall Walls Installation and Calculation

by Andrew Izot Digital Marketing Specialist
A drywall wall, like a drywall partition, consists of a metal frame twisted together, but unlike a drywall partition, a drywall wall is sewn with drywall on one side. For the device of a metal frame of plasterboard walls, it is recommended to use cold-formed galvanized metal profiles with a thickness of at least

The use of different profiles while drywall installation

The use of thinner profiles can lead to deformation of the entire wall structure. Profile and the gypsum Board, it is necessary to use the same manufacturer.
The most commonly used length of profiles is 3000 and 4000 mm, but if necessary, you can use profiles of other lengths.
In contrast to drywall partitions, two types of profiles are used in the construction of walls: UD-27 (wall-mounted) and CD-60 (frame)
similar to installation of suspended ceilings. To facilitate installation, the guide profile UD-27 often already has holes for the dowel. But if necessary, the puncher can easily make holes in another desired place. UD-27 and CD-60 profiles are mounted in pairs. For wall cladding with drywall, the specified thickness of drywall is used. If necessary, for a stronger rigidity, you can install the drywall in two layers.

The characteristics of the walls

In this section, we will look at the characteristics of a drywall wall, how to correctly and easily calculate the wall and the amount of material, the technology of drywall installation  on walls on a metal frame, as well as some secrets and nuances of installation why install drywall on walls? Let's say we have an apartment where the walls are made of brick, or even better of concrete. Concrete walls are strong, but thin enough to provide comfortable heat in the room, in cold and frosty weather outside. Of course, it is better to insulate the wall from the outside, but there are the structures of houses when it is quite difficult, or quite impossible to do this. The question arises, how to insulate the wall with drywall? In this case, we make installation of drywall on the wall from the inside on a metal frame, pre-insulated with mineral wool layer between the wall and drywall plates. This is often the case in multi-storey buildings, where the houses are built very close to each other and there is a gap between the walls.

The second option, if we have a brick wall built quite crooked and for alignment, it is easier to install drywall on the walls. Also drywall installation on the walls, used for different decorations, with built-in niches and shelves. It often happens that for some reason, it is necessary to increase the thickness of the already built wall. The UD-27 profile and the CD-60 profile are the main profiles for installing drywall on walls, but there are also other elements necessary for a proper and reliable wall construction.

Necessary elements for fixing a drywall wall
Direct suspension of profiles, designed to attach metal profiles to the base of the wall (concrete or wooden walls, etc.). Next element for the calculation and installation of drywall, the connector is single-level. The crab, as in suspended ceilings, serves for a cross-shaped connection of profiles at the same level.
Drywall installation demands some skills and proficiency, of course a newbie can watch some tutorials and after researching the niche try to do everything by himself. Though we have free access to info it’s better to install drywall with somebody who is experienced. This craft isn’t a mystery but to master it you need apply energies.
