Computer-Generated Surface Textures
|Offered by||McGraw-Hill Construction|
Recent alternatives to hand plastering techniques include computer generated and routed medium density fiberboard panels which are small in scale and have a low relief; or gypsum wallboards that are directly applied to walls for smaller scale repeating patterns. However, the latest trend includes large-scale three-dimensional gypsum seamless sculptural wall finishes, many without obvious repeats. These panels are constructed from a series of pre-cast panels bonded to a substrate that can create large seamless wall surfaces. They are specified either by selecting a range of pre-manufactured custom patterns and finishes or designed by the professional as a unique pattern. Certified installers are trained to finish these surfaces in handcrafted techniques.
Used throughout the rest of the world and the United States in hotels, offices and restaurants, seamless wall surfaces modulate light and create surface textures that reflect both natural daylight as well as interior lighting. They can be placed on curved walls and wrap around internal and external corners. They also have environmental benefits and can easily be incorporated into projects with green building criteria.Panels are zero Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), contain thirty percent recycled material and can be finished with hard, durable fifty percent recycled marble surface finishes. They meet class #A# fire rating and are easy to clean and maintain.
1. Discuss decorative computer generated three dimensional gypsum wallboard surfaces that are durable, contain recycled content andhave a handmade finish.
2. Specify correct substrates to enhance performance and maintenance of three dimensional sculptural gypsum wallboards.
3. Discuss decorative low VOC finishes that meet Green Seal criteria for all pigment variables.
4. Select a decorative wall surface that reduces labor, product waste and meets green building rating performance values.
