Timber lining boards from Glosswood offer the flexibility to be installed easily on curved walls or ceilings. In fact, it’s very similar to installing Glosswood timber lining boards onto a flat surface. This is because of the unique tongue-and-groove joint on these boards that allows them to be accommodated in an arc.

Direction of boards

The boards should ideally be installed with the tongue-and-groove running parallel to the curve of the arc of the ceiling.

Joining the boards

When joining the timber lining boards together, do not pack them too tight as it will cause unnecessary pressure in the event the boards expand or move slightly due to minor movement in the building. Simply place the tongue-and-groove boards comfortably into each other, pin into place and let the polyurethane glue do the rest.

Gluing the boards

It’s not the tongue-and-groove joint but the rubberised polyurethane glue that holds the boards in place and allows the lining boards to move with expansion and contraction.

Need an extra hand?

Talk to a qualified builder or carpenter prior to installing the boards yourself. Getting their advice or assistance can be useful during the installation.
