Dry Lining refers to the process used when attaching plaster based sheet boards to either a wooden stud framework , metal stud work or direct to brick or block works using an adhesive compound in a process called dot & dab.
It is popular, on both new build applications and refurbishment projects.
There are many different types of board used in dry lining, each one suited to a particular purpose or need, from standard wall boards to specialty boards:-
- Moisture Boards
Used for bath rooms and rooms with high levels of condensation.
- Fireline boards
Especially suited where additional support is required for extended fire retardation.
- Sound boards
Used to reduce sound travel through walls and partitions or coupled with resilient bar can offer sound protection between floors.
- Insulated Boards
Coupled with a layer of insulation these boards can be used to reduce heat loss and lower carbon emissions.
What ever the application there is a board to suite, and using the correct board for the job makes all the difference.
