Partition Walls

A partition wall is a wall for the purpose of separating rooms, or dividing a room. Partition walls are usually not load-bearing.

Block
Concrete formed into a 8″ x 16″ (depth usually varies) block and allowed to set until it hardens. The inside of the block is usually hollow but can be solid in some areas of a wall. Unless the block is covered with some other material, each block is easily recognized.

Drywall
Drywall also called plasterboard, sheetrock, gypsum board or wallboard comes in sheets typically 4′ x 8′ or 4′ x 12′. It is a hard, chalk-like material covered with paper on both sides. It forms a smooth surface on a wall that can be painted or finished in any number of ways.

Drywall, Textured
Drywall also called plasterboard, sheetrock, gypsum board or wallboard comes in sheets typically 4′ x 8′ or 4′ x 12′. It is a hard, chalk-like material covered with paper on both sides. A decorative texture is applied to the surface on a wall that can be painted or finished in any number of ways.

Glass Block
Hammered glass blocks, 8″ x 8″ x 4″ in size, set in masonry or frame walls to provide diffused light.

Plaster
Interior partition walls consisting of lath and plaster applied over partition framing. Plaster is typically found in older and high-value residences, seldom in more recently built ones. Through the 1930s, wood lath was common. From 1940 to 1960 the typical lath was button board, a gypsum board with thin paper and holes. After 1960 a thin gypsum board with thin wall plaster is common.

Plaster, Textured
Interior partition walls consisting of lath and plaster applied over partition framing, with a decorative texture applied to the surface. Plaster is typically found in older and high-value residences, seldom in more recently built ones.

Plaster, Horsehair
Interior partition walls consisting of wood lath and horsehair plaster applied over partition framing, with a decorative texture applied to the surface. Horsehair plaster is typically found in homes built before 1930, seldom in more recently built ones. It is actually regular plaster with a fiber added to it for additional strength.
