Internal Steel Frame Wall 10mm Acoustic Plasterboard


Structure

Internal steel stud wall with plasterboard lining.

Insulation Installation

Install insulation in between stud work behind plasterboard.
Make sure all gaps are sealed and that insulation is not thicker than the stud wall as deformation of
plasterboard may occur.
Ensure insulation is not in contact with electrical plugs or light fittings.

NOTES:
A. Calculations and assumptions in accordance with AS/NZS4859.1:2002 Amendment 1. 2006 on the path of insulation as required by BCA Volume 1. Part J and Volume 2. Section 3:12.
B. Temperatures and Parameters are based on Australian climate assumptions. Air temperature difference 12ºC (36ºC less 24ºC) for summer conditions and 6ºC difference (18ºC less 12ºC) for winter. Actual conditions may differ from standardised conditions. This will invest on the actual performance of the insulation.
C. Thermal resistance of air films and attic spaces based on values obtained from Section K5 and K6 of AS/NZS 4859.1:2006.
D. Building material elements based on 2000 AIRAH Handbook and attic thermal value based on AS/NZS 4859.1 App K6 table K2.
E. Where reflective insulation is installed, a simple addition of R-values is not possible. Care must be taken to ensure the performance of reflective air spaces is not ‘double counted’.
F. The emittance of the reflective surfaces are dependant on tested values and the conditions of the installation, as specified by AS/NZS4859.1 Amendment 1:2006.
G. All residentail roofing calculations in this handbook are based on a dark coloured roof.  All commercial roofing calculations in this handbook are based on a light coloured roof. Please refer to the colour absorbence chart for use of coloured roofs.  Also refer to the roofing material manufacturers classification of type of colour for their range.
H. The Rw estimate tolerance is ± 3dB.
I. Thermal resistance contribution of the unventilated ceiling plenum is determined for a thickness of 600mm (a conservative estimate for thickness up to 1200mm) in accordancxe with ISO6946:2007 where the width and length dimensions of the airspace are greater than 10 times its thickness, and the area of any openings does not exceed 500m² per square metre of surface area.
