SFS High Bay Separating Walls
High bay walls are similar to infill walls, except they are used internally to provide high separating walls for factory units or atriums. As they are often constructed within hot rolled steel portal frames, the amount of primary frame deflection that needs to be accommodated can be much greater than required for infill panels and bespoke details are typically provided to suit project requirements.
Metsec high-bay walls can be constructed up to 20m high and because of their lightweight construction there is rarely any need to provide additional foundations underneath the wall.
The high strength to weight ratio of the Metsec studs enables these high separating walls to be constructed without any need for any hot rolled steel wind posts which would be necessary in an equivalent wall of masonry construction.
Walls can also be designed to meet project specific acoustic and fire rating requirements.
