WHAT IS A DEMISING WALL?

A Demising Wall is the partition wall that separates one tenant’s space from another tenant’s space or from the building’s common areas such as a public corridor, hallway or restroom. Ideally, demising walls will go up to the next floor or roof deck and be sealed at all connection points. Additional insulation and noise abatement measure can be added and are often required by landlords or even building departments. It’s important for Demising Walls to be built properly in order to protect privacy, increase sound-proofing and eliminate or reduce issues between adjacent tenants.
