Smile Drylining/Fibrous Plasterer

Hi there,

I am wondering if anyone can help with a trade description.

My husband's trade is described as a Dryliner in the UK. I have been told that the correct term for the same thing is a Fibrous Plasterer in Australia.

Can anyone confirm this for me?

Thanks

Yep - definatly called fibrous plasterers, my hubby is a painter and decorator but he does drylining too so i have looked into it.

just googled it and found this!

Fibrous plasterers make and install plaster internal linings of domestic, commercial and industrial buildings. The work involves fixing and finishing plaster sheets and cornices to timber and metal framing. There is also a large segment of the trade in the manufacturing and fixing of ornamental plasterwork.

hope that clarifies

ive never heard of a dryliner called a fibrous plasterer in england, might be different in oz. a fibrous plasterer deals in the ornamental side of plastering, cornices,niches and mouldings and they mainly work in workshops but can work on site. Im a solid plasterer but trained a friend of mine in drylining a few years ago, now hes got his quals as a dryliner fixer but he wouldnt know were to start on running a cornice. Hes interested in going to aus also, he was there for two years labouring and loved it, now hes got quals as a dryliner, if anyone can find anymore info on this, cheers.

hiya, do a forum search for plasterers, you should come up with one or two threads from the last couple of years on the subject.

Question Re: Drylining/Fibrous Plasterer

Thanks, I tried that but it wasn't much help. Hubby's a dryliner so plastering doesn't really cover it.

I am soooooo confused with everything I have read I am starting to get brain drain with everything that is required.

We were told in Oz that this was the correct term but now I'm not so surem maybe I should put the English term down and hope for the best!!!!

just had a thought, have you looked at the asco definition? if you go onto dimias website and follow the links for his trade assessing board it should give you a definition (I think its a link to an asco booklet from dimias website) I will have a look for you when i get a minute......
alternatively, have you tried emailing/pm'ing some of the posters on the threads about plassterers? there are quite a few knocking about on here....

Smile Re: Drylining/Fibrous Plasterer

Thanks very much. That's exactly what I needed. Hopefully now that should make life a lot easier.

Hubby has just been told that he has passed his health an safety for working on site in England. This is coming into force across the country. You have to have these cards to be able to get on site. Part two is for inspectors to come round and watch you work. Once this has been done he will receive a certificate for NVQ3!! I can put this on his assessment form and hopefully it will be helpful.
