Shaft wall is a product designed to provide a method of constructing mechanical, electrical or other types of shafts out of thick gypsum based panels and specially designed steel studs. The use of shaft wall for fire rated shafts is beneficial due to its light weight, speed of installation, as well as its use of less floor space than the typical masonry shaft construction. In many renovations, the use of shaft wall is preferred, due to the challenges of masonry construction. Shaft wall can be carried up stairs, moved vertically within existing elevator cabs, and is easily constructed in tight quarters and difficult areas to access. Ask one of our experts if Shaft wall is right for your home project.
