appearance enhanced, through the use of mouldings. There are several types of wallboard mouldings available,.most of which fall into one of three classifications: metal, plastic or presdwood. Depending upon the classification, these are available in a full range of types

and colors for every conceivable installation or use. The better mouldings are scientifically designed to compensate for natural expansion of the wall and ceiling panelings; and many mouldings are designed, also, to permit installation of both mouldings and panels with concealed fastenings. As with the panels, most of the available mouldings are adaptable to any structural requirements, being easily fitted around corners and curves. The sparkle and brilliance of the metal mouldings, and the color of the presdwood and plastic types permit considerable latitude in the selection of the proper moulding to complement any decorative theme.

Cleaning is Easy

Particularly important is the eaSe with which plastic-finished wallboard can be cleaned. Here, again, we refer especially to the premium quality wallboard, with integrated surface and base. Merely wiping with damp cloth will remove dirt and grime. This operation takes little time and effort, yet restores all the original lustrous beauty of the paneling. With simple care, plastic-finished wall paneling never requires refinishing, a factor in cutting annual decorating costs to the minimum. At least one manufacturer makes a cleanerpolish that cleans, waxes and polishes pre-finished panels in one operation, and is widely used for maintenance of theatre installations of plastic-finished paneling.

Rest Room Accessories

To add still another word concerning theatre interiors, we might mention that at least one manufacturer of wall and ceiling panels also offers a complete line of rest room accessories. Finished in brilliant chrome and triple coated for a life-time of service, these accessories are of a modern octagonal design and harmonize with any plumbing fixtures. Die-cast from non-rusting metal and electroplated, these accessories are specially designed to withstand the unusually severe service to which such fixtures are subjected in public buildings.

Effective Interior Decoration

As shown in the illustrations, the use of plastic-finished wall and ceiling panels provides colorful, attractive interiors that please the most discriminating patrons and, at the same time, are practical, requiring little maintenance time and effort, and eliminating annual redocorating chores. That this combination of attractiveness and practicality is economically advantageous is evidenced by the constantly increasing number of theatre installations utilizing this modern method of creating beautiful, durable interiors.
