Drylining Services

Partitioning Wall Systems

A lightweight, non-loadbearing partition constructed using modern, drylining techniques. Our Metal framed partitions and walls can be used in all types of new and existing buildings. They cover all applications, from simple space division, through to high performance walls designed to meet the most demanding fire resistance, sound insulation, impact and height requirements.

Seperating Wall Systems

A lightweight, non-loadbearing, twin framed acoustic separating wall. It is often used in developments such as apartments, hotels, hospitals and schools, where a high level of acoustic performance is required to either meet or exceed Building Regulations.


This system provides a straightforward solution for fixing plasterboards directly to masonry backgrounds using adhesive dabs. It is suitable for fixing a wide range of plasterboards to non-plastered masonry substrates.


The ‘traditional’ form of plasterboard partition mainly used in residential applications - both in new housing and refurbishment. Plasterboard is fixed directly to timber joists, trusses and timber stud partitions or compartment walls. Insulation is installed above or between as specified.

MF Suspension

A suspended ceiling system suitable for most internal drylining applications. The fully concealed grid and ceiling lining can be used in conjunction with most plasterboards including acoustic ceiling boards to create a seamless, monolithic appearance.

Grid System

A lightweight metal grid suspended ceiling system available in concealed or exposed grid options. It presents a pre-finished tile ceiling and a range of decorative effects are possible by selecting the desired tile/board edge profile and finish.

Other Services


Traditional Sand & Cement, with polypropylene fibres which are added and dispersed during the mixing process. The fibres are incorporated to inhibit shrinkage and settlement cracking as well as increasing strength and durability. Flow Screed (aka. Liquid Screed), which can be laid substantially
thinner than conventional materials, flows into whatever shape is required while filling all gaps and voids. It is popular with underfloor heating, as it has almost twice the thermal conductivity of traditional screed – so offers reduced energy consumption.


Ferns Drylining are approved installers of Metsec Steel Framing System (SFS). Infill walling forms a secondary structure which is fixed between the primary super structure at floor and soffit. It is generally positioned at the slab edge allowing insulation and external finishes to be installed continuously outside the main structural frame.

Taping & Jointing

A prerequisite if the building element is to achieve specified levels or fire resistance and sound insulation. Jointing materials are applied, either manually or mechanically, to seal the lining. A number of jointing specifications are available.
A coat plaster is applied to plasterboard, giving many of the advantages of a traditional solid plaster finish, such as robustness and acoustic enhancement.

Two Coat Plastering

A substrate of HardWall or Bonding coat is first applied to give an even and sound background that can then accommodate the second and final coat of plaster.


We install many different types of insulation such as Rigid PIR boards, which are used in sloping rafter ceilings, flat roofs and timber frame homes. Quilted loft roll for loft insulation and acoustic, thermal and fire insulation can be installed where required.


This is usually installed at the angle between the wall and ceiling but can also be used to add further decorative effects in alcoves, reveals and other areas where there is a change of surface direction.

Through Colour Render

A one coat, ready mixed and weather resistant decorative render, which is suitable for most types of brick or blockwork. Available in many different colours and textures, and with Ashlar lines or Rough Cast systems.
An external wall system insulated by wrapping the building in a thermally resistant envelope. Each system can be finished in a wide range of renders with varying colours and textures.

Render Board Systems

Render boards can be installed to areas that require a clad board where suitable blockwork isn’t available. Boards then receive an acrylic-based, composite or decorative finish.
