7.         HSE

  • Daily site inspections before work commences should be carried out to look for indications of any situation that could result in cave-ins and indications of failure of protective systems.
  • Provide sufficient lighting during hours of darkness to allow safe working conditions.
  • :

The foregoing procedure for the installation of Drywall Partition will serve as a guide or reference to the SA and QCE along the course of their work to achieve an acceptable quality of workmanship, and at the same time to control materials utilization and attaining the optimum results with less time and effort as:

  • Consist of bottom and top metal track runners with vertical and horizontal studs to form a framing system for the Gypsum Partition wall.
  • Bottom and Top metal track runners shall be aligned to assure plumb wall and by securing the track with suitable fasteners at maximum spacing of 600 mm on centers.
  • Vertical studs shall be fixed along the metal track runner plumb-aligned spaced at 600mm on center likewise horizontal studs are fixed at 1200 mm on center in a staggered manner.
  • Regular gypsum board shall be fixed to the framing system by means of fastener of self-drilling screws of 300mm distance on center
  • Gypsum board shall be installed vertically to avoid end-butt joints wherever possible.
  • Gypsum board shall be installed with face side out. Imperfect, damaged or damp board shall not be installed.
