Is it suitable for retrofitting insulated plasterboard to rendered solid walls?

Usually we use treated battens...but have started using metal frame for ceilings and its quick...

When dry lining walls do you have to use a GL8 track around the perimeter e.g ceiling and floor? if so what do you do with lathe and plaster ceiling...stick track to ceiling?

Thanks

Yes, you use gl8 top and bottom with gypliner. It has to be fixed to the ceiling and floor. Once the wall is boarded, 6a around the perimeter and suspended mf ceiling- mf5-7 and hangers.

When you say fixed...how would you fix to lathe and plaster ceiling? assuming its not possible to get fixing into joists!

Can you not get a fixing because the last joist is too far away from the wall? Can you fix galv angle to the existing wall then fix track to the angle? Depends how much the current wall kicks out. Alternatively cross batten the ceiling first then you can fix trim to the batten
