«Where is the video?" - You ask.Do not worry, there will be video.Suspended ceiling issue is not just interesting and educational, but also quite heavy.Every step of the installation of such structures requires clarification, since it has its own features and tricks.
Installation in this case - is not only a gradual assembly of parts but also as O.Bender used to say - "quasi uno fantasy."That is - the ability to create, to invent, to try.
From simple to complex
that simple and that difficult to install suspended ceilings single- and multi-tiered?
Let's start with a single-level ceilings.And before we can fully delve into the technical details and tweaks some general information.
suspended ceilings include:
- suspended ceilings with plasterboard;
- raster suspended ceilings using a special harness and mounting panels.
Sometimes this category rank and film ceilings.
But these ceilings have some specific differences in the design and installation.
That allows them to select a single view - ceilings.
ceilings may be installed independently, without the use of special equipment and special skills, the ceilings not only require skills heating the web and work with it, but also the use of special heat gun.
Plasterboard enhance our ability
Does not that sound paradoxical.How can the material and design with its use to expand our capacity, if it just hides the part of the premises.Yes, and hides, and the possibility of expanding.
What we will plasterboard:
- relatively cheap material, spanning a large area;
- fairly easy assembly (if it does not apply to multi-level structures for individual projects);
- surface is easily installed in the horizontal plane and aligned;
- material has good sound and heat insulation;
- drywall durable;
- there are unlimited possibilities in creating stages, platforms and a variety of other design elements.
Putting the instrument and start the installation
next step, quite responsible.All of our materials we devote a lot of attention to it.This is not surprising.The proper selection of tools depends on the success of the case.
So today we need:
- Scissors on metal and Bulgarian circles of metal;
- screwdriver and a Phillips head screwdriver;
- water levels and normal;
- drill or a hammer;
- Various meters and square;
- knife with replaceable blades, hacksaw on plaster;
- Consumables profiles, metal screws, dowels and, of course, plasterboard.
sheet of drywall is large enough for its installation requires verified assistant.
- begin with drawing - you need to paint the frame scheme, based on your circumstances.This takes into account the height of the new ceiling, and all the levels and location of lighting.
Use water level and mark the perimeter of the room contour.She will be attached extreme metalloprofili.
Secure the ceiling profiles for drywall to the walls.For this we need a drill or a hammer, dowels or screws.Selection of mounting profile depends on what kind of walls you have.Draw the layout of the ceiling.
- establish a U-shaped mounting , and that will keep our entire structure.
When using stationary fixtures, or massive and heavy structures on the ceiling, we recommend to prepare additional fastening.
The immediate installation of these devices, we recommend to carry out in profile metal screws.
- We fix profiles .Next picture is so vivid that comment is superfluous.
- from the carrier profile, scroll to the installation of the transverse profiles .
In this case, it is assumed fixing with special connecting structures such as crab.With the step of sheathing to 40 centimeters.
- When ready the whole crate, droopy ears, U-shaped fixtures tucked inside the structure .
- And then - fasten drywall to the ceiling.To do this we will need a screwdriver and screws on metal.
Trimming sheets of drywall when installed in the corners of the room is carried out without any problems knife with replaceable blades or saw for plaster.
Direct mounting to drywall metalloprofilnoy crate does not cause problems.
We want to draw your attention that the cells under the lights cut out "on the ground" and in advance.
And yet, if you are installing lights in the ceiling, consider and set auditing windows that provide quick access to the fixtures and wiring.
And then spend putty.Joints covered with special bandage (he even called armirovochnoy mesh) and gloss over the starting filler.
proceed to putty: start - wait until dry, finish - wait until dry, rub clean sand mesh and paint if desired.
Video Installation of suspended ceilings will evaluate all resulting complexity and get to work fully prepared.
Setting raster ceilings little different from installing drywall.The only difference may be considered that the flight of your fancy,
will be limited to a single plane system.Objectives suspended raster ceiling are the same as in the drywall.Moreover, and tools that you install these structures are almost the same.The only thing that is clearly unnecessary, it's the knife and saw for plaster.
establish a crate for a raster ceiling
Like all hanging, raster ceiling requires crates.And not only that crates, so still and special profiles, and with a pitch ready panel - fussy.
carry out the calculation in the space of 100 square meters.
raster design, and all the other suspension systems are not used in rooms with low ceilings.
They themselves were taken of the volume.
- carrier profiles, we need 23 pieces
- transverse profile L1200 143 pieces;
- transverse profile L600 157 pieces
want to pay special attention suspensions.These devices are the main items in the crate.They bear the responsibility for keeping the weight of the ceiling and light fixtures, both built, and overhead.Today, the most popular of such suspension is here.
two needles and a spring in the form of a butterfly - that represented constituent elements of the suspension.Thus, the needle connected with a hook with a profile, borehole with a loop secured to the ceiling.The spring holds the spokes and allows for adjustment of the structure height.
Each suspension, unfortunately, it has a limit of withstand load.
One element is able to withstand only 6 kilograms per square meter.
If you want to pave the insulation or soundproofing, you will need additional canopies.
In the case of remote mount fixture without a few, canopies above plan you just can not do.
installation, installation has
- Fasten the horizontal line trim level;
- Install hangers on the ceiling;
- expose the guide profiles along the length of the room and fix them on hangers;
- With levels align their profiles and expose horizontally;
- Insert transverse profiles.
Edge Profile is entered in line trim, with the step of the installation of the transverse profile is calculated based on the size of panels inserted.
conclude this important and crucial stage, it is necessary to ensure a strictly horizontal arrangement of shapes and designs all crates in general.Ensure?Moving on.
Laying panels and lamps
complete any case the most enjoyable stage.Everything is ready, what we have done, is transformed in the eyes than a miracle.Take the panel and insert them into the grooves in the profiles in the direction of the arrows on the panel.
panel installation should be carried out with gloves to avoid injury.
Installation of panels and lamps involves the completion of finishing works in the room.
not recommended to put the panel in advance of wallpapering and other wet works.
Suspended ceilings are not just a fad.Smooth surface, the ability to improvise and a variety of colors allow you to implement the most courageous decisions.And the installation of a suspended ceiling: Video withdraw all technical issues.Be bold, and you will succeed.
