What Is a Demising Wall?

递减墙是一种分隔属于不同租户的空间或私人空间的隔断 tenant areas and common areas. Demising walls often have special considerations for energy efficiency, noise pollution, and tenant safety.

Demising walls are found in apartment complexes, 两套公寓之间的共享墙代表了属于不同租户的区域之间的分隔.

Demising Wall Uses

Noise reduction: The building code may require a demising wall to be insulated. Insulation 能否减少噪音,从而最大限度地减少对共用墙壁噪音的投诉.

Energy efficiency: Insulation can improve energy efficiency. 每个租户都可以控制自己空间的温度, 不用担心隔壁房间的供暖或制冷费用.

Temperature control: 绝缘也可以是重要的,当一个消亡的墙隔开了不同寻常的热或冷的地区从建筑的其他部分, 比如商业厨房和私人住宅之间的共享墙.

Fire resistance: Demising walls may need a fire rating 为了防止火灾在租户区域之间蔓延. 防火墙和防火门是火灾发生时控制火灾的重要组成部分.

Liability protection: 在两个空间之间设置高等级的墙体可以限制责任问题. For example, if one tenant's carelessness causes a fire, 邻居的空间躲在防火墙后面会很安全.

Rules About Demising Walls

Within a building, 对于租户与其他租户共用的墙壁和公共区域,可能会有一些规定.

  • 通常情况下,租户不能移动墙壁,因为它们代表了他们空间的外部边界.

  • 租户可能被禁止在墙上或墙上附近安装某些物品, as a courtesy to fellow tenants.

  • 租赁协议将提供有关物业使用限制的信息,以便租户知道哪些是允许的.



Evaluating a Demising Wall

In a building inspection, 检查员可以评估建筑中的墙体,以确保它们符合规范要求. 有时内部的重新排列可能会在以前不存在的地方产生一堵新的隔离墙.

一堵即将消失的墙将不同租户的空间分隔开来, as in an apartment complex or row of townhouses.

In this situation, 在完成墙面之前,检查规范要求是很重要的, 有必要采取特殊措施以满足规范要求的. If the wall does not conform, the inspector may cite the structure's owner, 他或她必须在大楼被批准使用之前修好它.

我的公寓联排别墅有木结构的斜墙,两边都与邻居毗邻. 起居区域之间的墙是2乘4的框架,最初没有隔热材料. The walls between bedrooms have staggered studs with insulation woven between them (leaving big spaces around each stud); unfortunately, these walls were only a little better than the empty ones.

当我刚搬进来的时候,我能隔着这些墙听到完整的对话. Over the years, 我到处打洞,然后用紧密包裹的纤维素和玻璃纤维绝缘材料把墙填满, 用水泥砂浆混合袋装满每个空间,将松散的填充物压实. It's important that such insulation be packed tightly to increase the amount of friction; loose, fluffy insulation lets a lot of sound right through it.

我总是用大量的接缝填充物填满这些洞,甚至在一些地方加了一层额外的干墙. Now, I can only hear really loud noises, 就像一个靠墙睡觉(哭闹)的婴儿, and even then, it's muffled and vague.

@shell4life -你很幸运地生活在一个地方,那里的建设者预先考虑了即将倒塌的墙的质量. I would imagine that since you have an effective one, you probably have certain rules to abide by to protect it.

I have a great demising wall, 我签的租约中有一部分对我能写什么不能写什么有限制. I cannot mount a television screen, computer monitor, 或者其他任何可能对即将消失的墙壁产生声音或温暖的东西.

我可以在上面挂艺术品或照片,但我不能在上面放任何电器. Even my space heater has to be a certain distance from it.

我从未住过公寓,但我去过不少酒店. 房间之间有消音墙以帮助减少声音.

我记得我第一次打开房间中间那扇通向隔壁房间的门. I was surprised to find another door on the other side. 声音和温度需要通过大量的木材, so both are significantly blocked.

Some hotel demising walls are thicker than others, though. It seems that in cheaper hotels, you can hear everything that's going on next door, while in luxury hotels, you barely hear even loud noises.

Fire walls are amazingly effective. When my neighbor's apartment burned all over, 我和她共用一面墙的那一面没有任何损伤.

My smoke alarm did go off, but this is a good thing. If there is a fire anywhere in the building, it's best to be alert to it, even if the fire wall does offer protection.

She was at work at the time of the fire, but when she came home, she saw that the place was beyond repair. 她很快检查了我的情况,她很惊讶地发现我在火灾中没有受到任何损害.

我公寓里的那堵墙绝对能消音. 即使当我的邻居大声争吵时,我能听到的都是他们低沉的声音.

我不喜欢住在一堵极薄的墙里. 我的表姐喜欢,她能听到她邻居的电视机开得很大. He is nearly deaf, so he has to crank up the volume, and since he usually watches TV late at night, my cousin has trouble falling asleep.

我的音响机的背景噪音就足以盖过邻居的声音. I turn it on to hear the soothing sound of ocean waves, 隔着这堵墙我再也听不到任何声音了.
