Plastering is a building technique that is ancient. It was devised to cover and protect surfaces against the elements, and also to provide a decorative finish. Thanks to the evolution of technology in the construction industry today, we are able to offer a number of plastering techniques to choose from.
Sand Cement Finish
What is Sand Cement Finish?
It is basically a mixture of Sand and Portland Cement with water, often used as an undercoat. The percentage of each varies, based on requirement, and is mixed on-site. Ready-made Sand Cement Finish packages are also available these days for convenience.
For both internal and external surfaces.
1. Gives a smooth finish 2. Plasticizer is added for smoother application and to prevent insect infestation 3. Adds a decorative element
What is Weber Render?
Weber Render is a range of Renders and Decorative finishes from Weber, that offer a fast application and a durable surface that is weather-resistant.
For both internal and external surfaces. Weber Render includes top coat and base coat renders, and decorative finishes.
1. Offers good insulation 2. Can be used for various types of brick or blockwork 3. Comes in a variety of texBenefitstured finishes and colours 4. High performance, low maintenance finishes
What is Multi Finish plaster?
Multi Finish is a Gypsum finish plaster that can be used for multiple backgrounds,from low-suction to medium-high suction of gypsum or cement-based undercoat plasters.
Multi Finish Plaster provides a high-quality surface for internal walls and ceilings, and a durable base for decorative finishes.
1. Pre-mixed 2. Fire resistant 3. Flexible – suitable for even small repair jobs 4. Can be used for a variety of backgrounds 5. Provides a smooth, high-quality surface 6. Aids sound insulation 7. Can be applied by hand or plastering machine
What is K Render?
K Render is a cement-based render system, incorporating silicon water repellents.It allows water vapour to pass through the render, for the substrate to breathe,while simultaneously making the render surface water-repellent.
K Render is available as Silicon Thin Coat and Silicon Scraped Texture renders, for external wall insulation, or for one coat applications directly on blockwork.
1. Optimum adhesion 2. Ready mixed 3. Low maintenance4. Water repellent 5. Easy application 6. Natural finish 7. Comprehensive range of colours 8. Allows substrate to breathe
Over the years, our service offerings have evolved. However, we have consistently built on our core competence as plasterers, honing our skills and developing a variety of plastering techniques, to always meet our client’s requirements.
What is Hardwall Plastering?
Hardwall Plastering is basically an undercoat plaster that is quick-drying, and is suitable for most types of masonry backgrounds, including bricks, aircrete and medium-density blocks. It can be applied by hand or sprayed on, ideally in a 2-coat plaster system.
For both commercial and residential use, Hardwall Plastering is a finishing coat applied over cement render or concrete, to prepare for painting.
1. Quick drying surface 2. Resistant to high impact 3. Can be applied both by hand or by mechanical plastering machine
What is Bonding Plastering?
Bonding Plastering is a pre-mixed, Gypsum undercoat plaster, ideally used for low to medium suction, and smooth, backgrounds. Primarily for interior use.
For new or to-be-patched walls. Bonding Plastering can be used with dense blocks, medium density blocks, plasterboard, painted or tiled surfaces, engineering bricks with raked joints, cast in situ and precast concrete, and metal lathing.
1. Easy application 2. Spreads smoothly 3. Good finish 4. Helps control suction
We always endeavour to provide our clients diversity, in terms of materials and techniques. This involves offering alternatives to plastering which you can opt for based on your building requirements. Our aim is to offer options that are easily maintained and durable.
What is Dry Wall?
Dry Wall is a plaster alternative. It is basically made from Gypsum, and is also known as plaster board or dry lining.
Dry Wallis used in the construction of walls and ceilings
1. Quick drying 2. Easy installation 3. Fire resistant 4. Durable 5. Easy to maintain
What is Dry Lining?
Dry Lining is a system used to clad internal faces of a building, like ceilings and walls. It does not require as much technical expertise as traditional plastering, and requires less water.
Dry Lining is used for cladding walls and ceilings, either directly, or indirectly onto a secondary framework attached to the internal face.
1. Easier and faster to install than wet plaster 2. Reduces the weight of the overall construction 3. Increases thermal insulation 4. Prevents condensation 5. The dry lined walls are easier to replace/change
What is Plasterboard?
Plasterboard comprises two outer layers of lining paper that sandwich an inner layer of gypsum that contains crystals which possess a small quantity of moisture. The layer of gypsum contains certain additives that influence the strength and weight of the lining paper.
Plasterboard is suitable for areas that require sound insulation, hence good for schools, hospitals, offices, etc. Ideal for the dryer areas in a building, hence unsuitable for kitchens and bathrooms.
1. Prevents the rapid spread of fire 2. Reduces noise transmission 3. High durability 4. Superior plaster finish 5. Available in tapered edge and square edge 6. Flexibility for use in curved areas
We like to offer services to our clients that go above and beyond just plastering – for walls and ceilings. These include services that facilitate insulation of external walls, fire safety and sound insulation.
External Wall Insulation
What is External Wall Insulation?
This is a high-performance insulation system which is applied to a masonry substrate, offering a variety of insulation and render finishes.
External Wall Insulation is suitable for most types of buildings, including commercial and industrial structures; new build homes; hospitals; educational institutions; airports; and hotels, etc.
1. Improves thermal performance 2. Enhances interior comfort 3. Offers a variety of colours and textured finishes 4. Enables remodelling and decoration of existing facades 5. Simplifies wall construction
What type of fire proofing?
For fire proofing, we use different materials with fire resistance ratings, and techniques, to help insulate walls and ceilings against fire.
Fire proofing techniques depend on the type of construction and the client’s requirements.
1. Insulation of walls and ceilings against fire.
What type of sound proofing?
Our sound proofing techniques involve the use of different materials and techniques to help insulate walls and ceilings against sound filtering in or going out.
Sound proofing is carried out in areas that require sound insulation, hence good for schools, hospitals, offices, theatres, etc.
