Trade Guidelines


Written for the wall and ceiling industry, the Trade Guidelines is a companion to the Australian Standards AS/NZS 2589 and manufacturer’s technical manuals. This booklet is an excellent source of information that contractors can share with their clients to better understand the trade and manage expectations. Developed with both education and industry ‘best practice’ in mind, this guide provides lining installers and contractors, builders, designers and owners with information on the wall and ceiling industry and factors that influence the quality of finish.

Trade Guidelines Edition Three (February 2022) is now available.

  • Troubleshoot common issues with descriptions on how to prevent or rectify.
