Plastering and drywall systems specialists install internal linings to buildings using lightweight steel frame systems, plasterboards and plaster products.
A dryliner creates new walls, rooms and corridors within a building. They also encase pipes and wires, create space for insulation and smooth out uneven surfaces during renovation work. Dryliners are skilled in building the internal walls in all types of buildings, using metal stud partitioning and plasterboard sheets. They can also install partitions that can be relocated as required, along with suspended ceilings and raised flooring.
