DRYLINING

Dry lining (sometimes referred to a drylining, or as drywalling) is a type of finishing or cladding for internal walls and ceilings. Dry lining is fast and easy to install, and in some cases, it can be useful for increasing thermal insulation and preventing condensation.

The dry lining process creates a smooth dry finish by attaching plasterboard to internal walls. Unlike plastering processes which can take up to twice as long to apply and dry out, the plasterboard surface is ready for painting straight after application.

Dry lining plasterboard materials come in a wide variety of sizes and thicknesses, making it a flexible, lightweight alternative to plaster. It can be fixed either directly to the internal face of a wall, or to a secondary framework of metal or timber.

SUSPENDING CEILINGS

A suspended ceiling is an affordable fitting which can be installed quickly and with the minimum of disruption. It is designed to either cover up unsightly fixtures such as pipes or wiring, disguise an unwanted soffit, improve the acoustic qualities of the environment, or simply as an aesthetic improvement.

There are several advantages to fitting a suspended ceiling, including easy access to vents or electrical wiring, flexibility should you with to replace ceiling tiles, and specialist fittings such as the incorporation of specialist features such as lighting or speakers into bespoke ceiling rafts.

There is a range of suspended ceiling systems including MF plasterboard, lay in grid, and metal pan, each of which offers a different stylistic finish.

PARTITIONING

Flexible design is important to the contemporary environment and lightweight partition systems can provide a cost-effective way to keep your office or home environment adaptable and responsive to the changing needs of its users.

Partitioning systems are non-loadbearing and are quick and non-disruptive to install as they employ modern, drylining techniques. They are ideal for use in new and existing buildings and can act as simple space partitions or they can be customised with features designed to enhance sound insulation, fire resistance and height requirements.

The materials utilised in partitioning are lightweight, and can be removed or reconfigured easily as your requirements change.

TAPE AND JOINTING & PLASTERING

This describes the finishing process for dry lining and interior wall. The major advantage of using plasterboard rather than plaster is that there are no wet compounds which must dry before you apply paint. Taping and jointing ensures that the surface of the plasterboard is smooth and perfect for your decorating requirements.

Plasterboard has tapered edges which allows for them to be lined without having to use plaster. Joint tape is applied to these tapered edges and it is then covered with a jointing compound which is left flush with the surface of the plasterboard.

Once the taping and jointing is complete, all that is required is a light sanding before decorating.

METSEC

Metsec or SFS is a light gauge metal infill system which provides a rapid envelope system. It creates a secondary support which allows insulation and cladding to be installed. The main benefits are:

  • It reduces the build duration
  • It reduces weight loads
  • It will save money in both labour and material costs

GLAZED PARTITIONS

Translucent glazed panels transform work environments by elegantly partitioning space without boxing in the individuals required to work within it. Glazed partitions create a professional office ambience which is light, airy and characterised by clean lines.

Glazed partitioning looks great, is easy to install, and comes with a range of optional features such as single or double glazing, glazed or timber doors, aluminium or timber head and base channels, fire resistance and sliding or hinged door mounts.

The installation of glazed partitions offers an ideal solution for shops, offices and light industrial spaces looking for a flexible and time-efficient way to configure space and create the necessary ambience and aesthetic for a contemporary commercial environment.

ACOUSTIC WORKS

The use of contemporary materials and applications can radically transform the sound quality that can be achieved in work or domestic spaces.

Most traditional decorative finishes reflect sound energy, producing a slight echo. By contrast synthetic acoustic plaster absorbs sound energy, reduces the reverberation times (eliminating the echo) and muting the overall noise level. The effect is a clear, crisp quality of sound which is particularly pleasurable when listening to music or talking. Acoustic spray is an alternative treatment, offering equivalent benefits which can be fine-tuned using a range of different finishes.

We can also install timber acoustic linings in spaces requiring enhanced sound quality, accompanied by the warmth, durability and texture which is unique to wood finishes.

FEATURE CEILINGS

Designing feature ceilings is all about creating a space that is individual to you; highlighting and defining specific areas within your environment to reflect or enhance to the ways in which you want the space to work for you.

Whilst painting and decorating tends to be our first thought when we’re looking for a change, a redesigned ceiling using imaginative and exciting ceiling features can radically reshape your living space. Ceiling features might include the use of lowered soffits, concealed lighting or speakers, angled ceiling slopes, beams or raised coffers.

If you can imagine it, we’ll find a way of installing it for you.

COVING CORNICE

Very often the terms coving and cornice are used interchangeably now, but there is a difference between them.

Coving describes the concave panels that are fitted at the joint between the wall and the ceiling in many houses. Whilst the choice to use coving is often primarily aesthetic – it softens the edges of the room – it does also have the practical purpose of covering unsightly cracks caused by heat expansion.

Cornice work describes a wholly decorative form of plasterwork which is used to ‘crown’ a room or a building. You might apply a cornice over a door, at the top of a wall or around the upper edge of a window. The design is often elaborate and it is frequently bespoke.

RAISED ACCESS FLOORING

This has fast become an essential feature of modern office environments. Raised access flooring comprises a horizontal grid of load bearing floor panels which are supported by adjustable vertical pedestals. The raised access creates an under-floor space which houses building services such as electrical power, data cables, water and drainage, and air conditioning.

Having a flexible raised floor system ensures that essential building services can be accessed for regular maintenance and service level adjustment. Easy to install raised floor grids are ideal for workplaces where data usage is high and floor space is at a premium – creating a void for cabling ensures that data can be channelled effectively and safely to exactly where it is need.
