Nail through the upper and lower plates 2-by-4s at the ends of other 2-by-4s (wall bars) located perpendicular to your upper and lower plates 2-by-4s.

At the center, you have space barriers from the center of an mdf wall panels line to the middle of the other, beginning at one end of your top and bottom plates to the other. Cut down any 2-for-4s in small “truncation” or “fire block” sections. These should be cut to fit perpendicularly between wall rails halfway between your top and bottom plates.
