Ysgol Y Gogarth increases thermal mass with two coat plaster

Thistle plaster boosts robustness and avoids overheating in summer months.

Superior thermal mass was required on the south west facing classrooms to avoid them getting too hot during the summer months. Thermal modelling was undertaken and showed that the addition of a two-coat plaster system led to a better performance than what a standard solution would achieve, alleviating overheating in the warm weather. This, combined with the high quality and durability provided by the solution, made it perfect for the job.

The British Gypsum two-coat plaster system was a joy to work with as it was so quick and easy to apply. As this was a large project, with many different rooms to plaster, it was important that we didn’t have a lot of unnecessary building materials and equipment on site. Thistle HardWall and Thistle MultiFinish was so easy to mix on site, and the speedy drying times really helped us keep within our timescales.
