Finishing systems and decorative effects


Jointing materials produce durable joint reinforcement and a smooth, continuous, crack-free surface ready for priming and final decoration. They also seal the lining – a pre-requisite if the building element is to achieve the specified levels of resistance and sound insulation. A number of jointing specifications are available to suit the board type, method of application, and site preference.

Plaster skimming

Plaster skimming to plasterboards is a popular method of providing a smooth, seamless surface ready to receive decorative treatment. Skim plastering gives many of the advantages of a traditional plaster finish combined with quick turnaround on site.


Tiles can be applied to drylined walls or the surface of lightweight partition systems to dado rail level or above. Tiling can be carried out in any type of building either in dry areas or in areas subject to intermittent moisture conditions.
