steel stud interior wall - 16 foot high


I spell Brasil as Brazil because I'm writing in english, and in english that's how it is spelled. I spend the last week looking for powder gun or alternatives but with no success, I tried to contact Fischer (another company that has a powder gun) to see if they can give me any hope. But so far I'm thinking on "manual" alternatives, like a hammer drill and concrete screws...

here you can buy a manual one shot powder gun for about $30-60 and you can buy the cartridges right off the shelf. i know remington makes them and you can buy them on ebay. and yes you are suppose to get a license to operate one and you can be fined here in canada but nobody really enforces it. i've had mine for about 6years and have never been asked if i had one. just use tapcons or screws and plugs.

Because I live in Brazil, where people use the walls, brick, gypsum board is just getting started in the past few decades of the space. I am fairly new housing construction DIY, my work is mainly wood HP 75, electricity and electronics.

I don't think you have this right. The wall assembly must be able to handle deflection when attached to a roof structure or something similar, but this 1/2" gap is not mandated as a fire rated assembly or any other reasons than a wall top with a deep track deflection.

Yes, to meet your local codes. And many areas feel that if the entire assembly is non combustable, fire blocking may be deleted.
