Create interior wall in dry construction


Drywall construction has long been a building standard in the interior design of new buildings. But even for subsequent use, the dry construction technique is excellent. However, the special features of the drywall interior wall must be taken into account.

The disadvantages of the drywall are reflected in the construction

To better understand where the problems with a drywall are, first of all the disadvantages:

  • not as high a load capacity as masonry
  • for good soundproofing a correct installation is essential
  • less stability than masonry

Load capacity of the inner wall in dry construction

The load-bearing capacity of a drywall can be produced quite well by double-plating the drywall. This increases the load capacity of Trockenbauwandg.

The sound insulation and the inner wall in drywall on screed

Far more problematic, however, is the sound insulation. Especially when installing a drywall in existing buildings optimal conditions are very difficult and expensive or even impossible to produce. So the drywall usually has to be placed on screed.

However, this has a lasting effect on sound insulation. In order for the sound to be decoupled between the now emerging two rooms, it is necessary to place the drywall on the bare floor, so first the drywall, then the screed.

If you need the drywall only temporarily and / or sound protection is not so important, this otherwise very important aspect is of course negligible. In addition, the interior wall in dry construction, of course, offers many advantages such as quick installation and low, manageable costs.

Build up the inner wall in dry construction

How you proceed when installing the inner wall as a drywall, you can read in numerous guidebooks in the house journal in detail. Also important is the substructure of the drywall, which can consist of different materials. It comes either wood or - today common - metal as a stand in question.

Tips & Tricks

There are even more special features to consider when using drywall interior walls. For example, the transition of the drywall between the wall and ceiling or the attachment or rather not performed attachment of the drywall to the ceiling. Here, the building physics and thus the bending of the ceiling must be considered. Although the drywall is easy to execute, important details have to be taken into account in order to permanently enjoy the new interior wall.
