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
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
