I have a new store and am unable to build my partition walls up to the
suspended ceiling. Most of the walls are 8' high and consist of a free
standing L shape of free standing T shape. I have the top of the L's
and the bottom of the T's anchored into a concrete wall, and also have
the floor plates for them anchored into the concrete floor. However,
without any support on the ceiling, the walls easily move when you push
on them. I have not put any drywall on them yet. Will installing the
drywall stabilize them more? If not, what method can I use to
Thanks in Advance!
Assuming you now have triangles at the top and with the bottoms secured
to the floor or formed into a triangle with a link from each end to another,
they should become more stable with additional weight. Securing them to the
floor will also help. If you have a number of them you may be able to
secure the tops together making your own floating ceiling.
