Knauf Airless Finish spray plaster has been specified by off-site construction company Danilith at one of its projects in Norfolk.
Danilith’s unique construction method uses factory-produced brick-faced insulation panels to deliver a bespoke home in just 18 weeks, and Knauf’s spray plaster was specified to assist with this rapid build time. Traditional plastering methods require a bonding agent to be applied to the concrete panels prior to plastering, but Knauf Airless Finish can be applied directly onto the concrete substrate.
The ready-mixed plaster is applied using a piston pump machine and can reach up to three metres from floor level, removing the need for scaffolding, steps or hop-ups. A two-man team on-site at the Norfolk project were able to complete 60m2 of ceilings in less than 12 minutes.
With a two coat application, Knauf Airless Finish is applied between 1-2mm thick and dries to a consistently smooth finish with a white appearance, meaning less work is required once handed over to the decorators.
