Understanding Dry Lining Insulation

Posted on 12th May 2021

When it comes to insulation, sometimes it is hard to understand what everything means. That is why we are here to help you understand dry lining insulation. To put it simply, dry lining involves an internal wall with insulation properties, this tends to be a more quick and clean way compared to plastering.

Dry lining includes many different techniques of applying plasterboard to masonry, timber or metal surfaces. It also is more simple than traditional plastering, as dry lining needs no water.

What you should know about dry lining is that it could add to your home insulation, the thermal efficiency of your home can be greatly increased if the plasterboard applied has a vapor layer fitter or an insulant bonded to its surface.

That is why we recommend the Ultra Liner high performance insulated plasterboard for walls, ceilings and pitched roof applications. It is perfect if you are looking to insulate your room in an easy way without using plaster.

When choosing your dry lining you need to be careful when choosing the right one, as you need to think about the thicknesses, sizes and lengths. The plasterboard you choose must work with the stud centres. You should always think about where it is going to be fitted, especially since humid areas or those near areas where water penetration is susceptible, will require using moisture resistant plasterboards. Making these the best option for bathrooms or kitchens.

Not only will these provide great insulation in your home, at an affordable cost, but they are great if you are looking for an eco-friendly solution, that is flexible, and easy installation – especially if you hire a professional to help install it for you!
