Word-of-the-Month: Demising Wall
The construction of a demising wall is inherently important to comply with building codes related to fire, smoke and sound. There are many types of demising walls, some of which are reusable and movable to give flexibility or to redefine a space.
A demising wall is also known as a party wall.
A demising wall separates one guest room from the next guest room and corridor at a hotel project Stahl is currently building in Orlando, FL. The wall is a one-hour interior rated wall (fire resistant for a designated time period) that is insulated, fire caulked and acoustically sealed.
