Chatterton Lacework provides guidance on the best way to install various
lacework designs including Chatterton Lace Clover, Cloverleaf, Birmingham,
Bristol, Dorrington and Small Maldon.
Chatterton Lacework advises that all the corner sections of the lacework
must be installed first by holding the corner into the top section of the post
and fixing it to the post and the beam above with plasterboard or wood screws
utilising the fixing lugs on the corner.
Once the corners are attached, the decorative dropper is installed in
the centre of the span between the two posts to the beam. After fastening the
dropper to the beam, the lacework is fixed by fitting one section
of frieze to the edge of the corner. This is done on both corners on
either side of the span. Any lace overhanging the dropper must be cut
neatly to fit behind the decorative dropper. Repeat this process on
the lacework on the opposite side of the span.
If there is a gap between the frieze and the dropper as a result of the
span being wider, cut a small section to join onto the lace to fit behind the
