Specifying and fixing internal linings demands a high degree of skill to ensure that the finished installation will perform in the environment the internal linings are installed in and meet the end user's expectations. There is a wide range of internal lining materials available, and there is often a gap between what is expected of particular lining materials and what is achievable given the construction methods being used.
The audience for this guide is designers and specifiers, builders, partition installers, lining installers, stopping contractors, building officials, building owners and students of design and construction.
This guide covers most current wall and ceiling lining applications including:
- lining selection
- support systems and fixings.
It sets out the requirements and installation processes for all aspects of lining installtion so that realistic finish quality levels can be set and the completed installation achieves the expected quality level.
It does NOT cover the selection and installation of suspended ceiling systems.
