well known that plastering the walls and floors suggestsmandatory installation of special guidelines (the so-called "lighthouse"), lets you control the applied composition.That is why the works on plastering of surfaces, you can start only after consulting with how to install beacons on the wall.
used for arranging wall lighthouse guides are made, usually of metal strips or corners of a given size;Moreover, their options are selected, taking into account the thickness of the active layer subsequently applied plaster.Sometimes beacons, after aligning the solution is not removed from under it, which is practiced often in the plastering of walls, prepared for subsequent tiling.
Materials and tools
to install wall-mounted beacons you may need the following materials and tools:
- putty used to secure the lighthouses on the wall;
- trowel of appropriate size;
- a bucket of water;
- rule base with a length of 1.5 to 3 meters;
- profile level with the base of a meter;
Application Markup to install beacons
Preparing walls for plastering is applied to these vertical marks that indicate the location of the future of lighthouses.
Proper installation of beacons plaster
number of metal strips needed for the preparation of the guide, should be chosen with the expectation that in addition to the basic layout in some places plastered surfaces need to install additional (intermediate) beacons.Their location is usually chosen in the points that are equidistant from the major places of installation of beacons.
Fixing beacons on the wall
Cooking putty mixture
Securing metal beacons on a wall made with putty, which you will need to prepare in advance.This solution is prepared based on standard building mixtures, by mixing them with water in a classic proportions.
addition to secure the beacon can be used and ready putties, commercially available in standard packaging.When choosing a mixture of pay attention to the area you use the acquired composition.Of the variety of existing materials should be preferred composition for fillers walls of brick or concrete.
Installing beacons on the wall
procedure for fixing beacons on the wall is very simple and is as follows:
- The first step is to clean the dirt and dust from the section of the wall marked on a verticallabels indicating the location of the beacon.
- After that it should be thoroughly wetted with water and treated with a conventional soil composition.
- then with a spatula on the marks on the wall is applied to several small "spots" of the finished filler.
- And finally these islands solution installed (recessed in them) yourself beacons.
Alignment beacons installed
Checking the level of
vertical alignment Before installing beacons on the wall should be required to assess the degree of vertical surface serving as the basis for their application.To carry out such an evaluation, you will need a special rule with a built-in level, or any other (similar to this one) measuring tool.
Thus, focusing on the testimony of your measurements, you can change the thickness of the "spots" under the beacons installed at different points of the wall surface.
After fixing the lighthouse on the wall do not forget to double-check the accuracy of the setting and make an adjustment of its position (if necessary).To do this, you will need to make level to the beacon and gently crushing it, to achieve the vertical position of the guide.Upon completion of the alignment of the lighthouse be sure to remove any excess with a solution.
Installation of intermediate beacons
Setting intermediate beacons
If you can not use the beacons to set the long rule - it will be necessary to reduce the distance between the control points at the expense of installing additional (interim) targets.
For their preparation, you should divide the distance between the adjacent beacons into two equal halves and put on the wall of the corresponding markings.Just note that doing this will only be possible after the filler has dried, used for fixing the main lighthouses.
Then, the resulting vertical markings "spot" solution, after which it is pressed an additional beacon.To align it, you can use the same rules that apply before everything for the main beacons.
Beacons can be set in this alternative method:
