Correspondingly, how much weight can you hang on drywall?
This can be 5 to 10 pounds, but keep in mind that the drywall is an extremely brittle material and, it is not strong enough to hold the weight for a longer period of time.
Subsequently, question is, can you put a wall on top of a floating floor? If you used a lot of mass, as you should, it will work and you have to calculate the loading of the walls and also the ceiling weight that will sit on those walls and then use the proper isolator on the floating floor perimeter. Therefore, YES, put the interior walls ON the floating floor.
Similarly, you may ask, how do you anchor a freestanding wall?
A common way to anchor such walls is to cover one face with 1/2-inch plywood, extend the plywood down below the subfloor and screw it to a floor joist. Use 2-inch screws, which are long enough to almost penetrate the joists, and space them about 12 inches apart.
Can you hang things on drywall?
Ideally, you want to hang heavy things from your walls by using the studs as the anchor. This is where drywall anchors can save the day. A drywall anchor goes between the screw and the drywall, biting into the drywall much more effectively than a screw would.
