Internal walls

Internal load-bearing walls

If the internal partition walls are a support for the ceiling of the upper floor or the roof structure, they are referred to as internal load-bearing walls. Walls of this type are permanently attached together with external walls. The structural layout and assembly process of the internal load-bearing walls are practically the same as in the case of external frame walls. The only difference lies in the way the plating and finishing of the walls.

Inner wall non-bearing

The unattractive partition walls serve only as a partition separating the internal rooms, i.e. they are not treated in the context of the building structure as an element transferring horizontal or vertical forces. Nevertheless, such structures must have sufficient load capacity to transfer their own weight, as well as other forces acting on their surface (from mechanical impacts to hanging point loads), and then transfer them to adjacent load-bearing divisions.
