What is Partition wall testing?

Partition wall are non-load bearing walls that separate spaces in buildings. As well as spatial division, they can provide; privacy, acoustic and fire separation and flexibility of layout.

It may potentially be hazardous to the occupants if it is left unchecked. Without proper laboratory test for partition wall used in a building, it could affect the safety, comfort, and durability of the building materials.

Why is Partition wall testing important?

Partition wall testing is important because manufacturers, developers and consultants can understand the characteristic and behaviour of the wall under vigorous testing in the lab before being build on-site. The test report on the partition wall performance such as strength performance, fire safety, water impermeability, thermal conductivity etc can help manufacturers and developers to ensure that the product is safe and fit to use
