What Is Dry Lining?
Dry lining is a generic term applied to the use of (typically) plasterboard on timber or metal frames. Or (in the case of a finish to blockwork walls, on plaster ‘dabs’) as a replacement to conventional building practices (‘wet trades’) where brick or block, or more traditionally lath and plaster would be specified. The term dry lining strictly applies to the use of plasterboard to replace a sand and cement or wet plaster finish to internal blockwork, although it’s use has become more broadly associated with internal fit out throughout the building. In this application the term studwork (from the timber or metal studs that form the frame to which the boards are fixed) is more commonly used.
What Are It’s Advantages?
The main advantages of dry lining relate to the speed of installation and lower imposed water loadings on a building.
Other advantages include the fact that the use of lightweight partitions will result in a lighter building with consequent benefits in the specification of the foundations, together with greater flexibility in designing and changing the internal shape of the house as a family’s needs change. The lightweight nature of the partitions also allows far greater flexibility in the design of upper floor layouts, where a conventional brick or block partition may prove out of the question on most types of floor.
The use of dry lining systems also gives the Builder flexibility in the choice of insulation materials, which may not be available with conventional building methods. In timber frame, dry lining is implicitly the preferred method of building.
