For an elegant finish, Flush plastered ceilings are the way to go. We use a thicker stronger quality rhinoboard than standard ceilings to carry the extra weight so that they don't sag over time and then use a rhinolite plaster to skim plaster the ceiling boards to make the finish clean and elegant. By choosing this ceiling there are a number of benefits, you can make use of this ceiling for almost any design shape or size, and use it as a design feature, the boards are thicker providing better insulation as well as sound attenuation, and we can easily integrate bulkheads into your designs by using flush plastered ceilings.

Two common methods are :
The installer will fasten Rhino or Jumbo boards to the frame using screws or nails. It is important to apply a special Fibre tape to reduce the chance of cracking at joints where boards meet. This is when the fun starts. The plasterer will then apply a thin coat of Rhinolite or skimming plaster evenly across the boards. Finally the plasterer will float the ceiling to a smooth finish. It is vital that materials used in installation of ceilings and bulkheads comply with South African building standards therefore insuring the installation is safe and protects the owner from liability issues.
When the plaster has dried a decorative moulded cornice or other ceiling trim can be fixed at the corners where the wall and roof meet to create the desired effect.
