    Has anyone ever seen or used a bead for joining ceilings or walls to skeiling ceiling, thinking variable angle plastic trim for dry lining to, have uses some the other side of the pond.
    I had to look up the word skeiling and realized its something I've just put into the design of a house, this week.

    I was just going to joint and skim it. Why would you want to use a plastic joint? Problem will be finding the right angle.

    The only thing I can think of is to look for suppliers of suspended ceiling parts and office partition walls.

    The ones I saw were like hinges and so one size fits all.

    It is not east to get the join straight and with dry lining it is nice if it is, the one we needs to do is 22m long so more crucial to get straight.
    I guess it depends on the structure you are fixing the plaster board and if it is set up straight. Then its up to the skill of the guy doing the tape and joints

    But I agree that its very hard to get that kind of joint straight.
    Up until fairly recently it wasn't the norm to tape and joint ceilings here in Sweden. Finishes were either T&G timber or a pre-finished panel with beveled edges installed brick bond. In both cases various types of timber beads are used to cover the junctions.

    In new builds taping and jointing is more common (done by the painters and decorators so no chance of buck passing if the final finish isn't up to spec) they don't tape the joint to the ceiling just caulk it with a small radius and paint with the ceiling colour. Not being used to it I thought it looked a little odd at first but quickly got used to it.

    Could you use 2 stop beads back to back. Caulk joint if you want?
