British Gypsum’s ThistlePro DuraFinish skimming plaster is playing a significant role in protecting the walls from accidental damage at a new sensory room facility for charity organisation Autism Isolation No More.

Plasterer and charity volunteer Aaron Pearson, from Titanium Plastering, took responsibility for the internal finishes and installation of all equipment at the new sensory room, in Fareham.

ThistlePro DuraFinish creates a plaster skim finish that is proven to provide significantly increased resistance to accidental damage when compared with a regular plaster. Moreover, it can be used on plasterboard or undercoat plasters, or for re-plastering and repair work on previously finished walls.

Mr Pearson said: “It is the ideal testing environment for the plaster’s durability because the children are constantly running around, throwing toys against the walls and really testing its strength.

“We needed a plaster finish that would stand the test of time. The added benefit of installing DuraFinish is that it provides a smooth finish and is so easy to work with.”
