INTERIOR SYSTEMS - DETAILS

The details that follow are standard details that depict proper detailing for interior non-load bearing partitions.  The source of these details is either ASTM or the Gypsum Association.  The intent is to serve as a guide.  Final approval of detailing for a specific construction project is the right and responsibility of the Architect of Record.

ACOUSTICAL HEAD - OF- WALL

ACOUSTICAL HEAD - OF- WALL
GENERAL NOTES

  1. Continuous bead of acoustical sealant in contact with gypsum panels, track, and structure.
  2. To allow for differential movement, no mechanical fasteners between gypsum panels, track, and stud.
  3. Check with Underwriters Laboratories for specific fire rated head-of-wall designs.
  4. Source:  Gypsum Association, GA-600 Fire Resistance Design Manual.
  5. Attach track to structure with appropriately sized and spaced fasteners.
  6. Nominal 3/8” gap between top of gypsum panels to bottom of structure.

WALL BASE - NON STRUCTURAL

WALL BASE - NON STRUCTURAL
GENERAL NOTES

  1. Sealant required for acoustical performance, smoke control, and fire resistance.  Check specific Underwriters Laboratories designs for specific sealant types.
  2. Attach track to structure with appropriately sized and spaced fasteners. 
  3. Nominal 3/8” gap between bottom of gypsum panels to top of structure.

DOOR FRAME DETAIL

DOOR FRAME DETAIL
GENERAL NOTES

  1. Position jamb studs from floor to structure and attach to track top and bottom.
  2. Determine if special details are required to accommodate slab deflection.
  3. Fabricate door header from track sections and attach to jamb studs.
  4. Number and steel thickness of jamb studs based on size of opening and weight of doors.
  5. Less than full height door frames require control joints in gypsum panels over door frame.
