Abstract (en)

Elongate packing elements (12) fill gaps (11) between tiles (4) of a suspended-ceiling where the gaps (11) are traversed by a partition wall (1) that abuts the under-faces (10) of the tiles (4). Each element (12) has an adhesive backing (14), and before the wall (1) is extended to the ceiling during installation, the element (12) is affixed within its gap (11) to an I-section support (6) of a rectangular grid (7) through which the tiles (4) are hung. The header-channel (17) of the wall (1) is screwed to the support (6) through the element (12), sandwiching the element (12) between them to at least partially block the gap (11) there. A notch (20) in the element (12) allows it to be divided for use with walls of different thicknesses, and an alternative packing element (26) for use with an H-section header-channel (28) can be shortened for use with the channel (28) reversed. <IMAGE>
