I'm battening the walls of my brick and block 80s house, insulating in between and then plasterboarding over with acoustic plasterboard (heavier than the regular stuff). Have I used enough battens to support the weight? I see some people put header battens and noggins in too. I'm trying to do a thorough job but don't want to waste materials, plus the neighbours are very bothered by the sds drilling into the walls so don't want to go overboard.
Most walls are 2.4m high but some areas on the stairs are up to 3.3m.
Hi hrimalf, Yes that’s right but you should support across the ends of the boards with noggins. Don’t forget to lift the boards about 20mm above floor level so they are clear of damp and overly keen floor washers. Regards S
