Whats the procedure for external edges using tapered edge boards?
Do you use beading, if so what type and size?
Any info would be appreicated

For tapered edge boards or dry lining there is a corner tape which is stuck with joint adhesive the same as joint tape.

They've got steel reinforced edges which when stuck, finish level with main part of board. (filling is required as with standard jointing where the taper starts and edge of corner tape begins) Clear??? Just google corner tape for dry lining and you'll see what I mean!
do you have to join over the 2 tapered edges on the external corner?

By putting a corner bead or corner tape over the tapered edges of an external corner, you are automaticaly joining the edges. Once the bead/tape is on, just fill out the tapered edges with filler to the flush level of the sheet of plasterboard.

Thanks for the info, I've also found a guide on the web which is very useful.
