SHTM 56 v1.0 Dec 2006 Scottish Health Technical Memorandum 56 SHTM Building Component Series Partitions. This SHTM offers guidance on the technical design and output specifications of partitions. Although this guidance is presented in the context of requirements for non-loadbearing partitions in new buildings, much of it applies equally to the alteration or upgrading of existing buildings, to load-bearing partitions and walls, and to dry linings to masonry and concrete faces generally.
