Temporary partition wall to divide a room?

what are the best options to build a temporary partition wall ?

3 Answers from MyBuilder Carpenters & Joiners

In my opinion using a 70mm metal stud partition with appropriate 12.5mm plasterboard depending on the purpose of the wall to both sides would be an ideal option giving you a total thickness of 95mm. You could also use a 50mm metal stud in place of 70mm giving you a total thickness of 75mm. Each will give you a substantially solid parti wall with the only difference being in the price of materials, with the aid of insulation for acoustics and thermal properties and ply patrass in the cavity if required to mount anything to it e.g shelves, radiators etc. Would give you the perfect option for a temporary partition.
It’s a quick and easy system with the option of tape and jointing for ease of quick dismantle or plastering for a better finish for bedrooms etc..
Hope this info helps.

I have done a few stud walls and just just 3x2 timber frame plaster board each side then plaster attach to floor and ceiling and make sure you check floor and ceiling before screwing screws and make sure its straight pretty easy
