For finishing ceilings in offices, public buildings and industrial buildings are widely used plate ceiling Armstrong.This is a fairly practical option repairs as suspended ceiling structure allows successfully hide various communications - channels ventilation, fire extinguishing systems and so forth. In addition, such ceilings look great, make it possible to install recessed lighting and do not create any problems with the service.
Such finishing material as Armstrong ceiling tiles, appeared in Russia at the beginning of the last decade of the last century.And immediately suspended ceilings from mineral fiber plates have gained immense popularity.
its low cost and easy installation of components, the cost ceiling is quite accessible.Therefore, they are widely used in a variety of settings.
Use ceiling type Armstrong
suspended ceiling Armstrong is a system consisting of profiles, attached to the ceiling and mineral boards.As a rule, Armstrong ceiling bo
advantages of such ceilings
Using a finishing material, such as plate, Armstrong ceiling, are coatings that have many positive qualities.
- Affordable accessories.
- Fast and easy installation that does not require specific skills.
- underceiling possibility of using space for hidden laying communications.
Tip!This type ceiling is very convenient for office buildings, as in the space above the floor can be laid not only the ventilation ducts, and the wiring network.And it is massive enough and requires installation of special rails for mounting.
- Easy access to communications, located in underceiling space.
- simple way to repair if during the operation will be spoiled by one or more plates.
- mounting on the suspension makes it easy to fix even highly uneven surface of the ceiling.
- using a material such as ceiling boards Armstrong can completely change the color and texture of the ceiling coverings.
- folding design and interchangeability of different elements allows to set and implement a variety of design tasks.
- high noise and heat insulating properties of the ceiling provided by the mineral fiber plates, in addition, it is possible to place additional space in underceiling sound - or thermally insulating material.
Fixtures for ceiling type Armstrong
Usually on such ceilings set fixtures in standard sizes, which do not differ in size from the slab ceiling Armstrong, so they are easy to install in a free cell ceiling.
standard lamps have four special fluorescent lamps and light reflection of that light is evenly distributed.
Types Armstrong ceiling tiles type
should be noted that plates for suspended ceiling are available in a wide range.They can be divided into series.
This series comprises plates having a quite decent quality features and reasonable price.Applicability of plates in the series has limitations because they should not be installed in places where the air has high humidity.
The series includes models:
- Baikal (Baikal) - has a white surface with a structured "wormholes."This modification is the cheapest, it is compatible only with the edge Board (Board).
- Oasis (Oasis) - is characterized rough white surface, combines affordable price and original appearance.
- Tatra (Tatra) and Kortega (Cortega) - mineral panels decorated with cracks, has an average sound absorption.Installed in combination with two varieties of edges - Board (Board) and Tegular (Tegular).
- plus Oasis (Oasis plus) - differs from the basic model, the presence of perforation, which improves its acoustical properties.
- Norma (Norma) - Armstrong ceiling tiles with perforations having an enhanced ability to dampen noise.
Series Prima (Prima)
This series includes ceiling tiles Armstrong:
- has six different types of surface.
- combined with the three most popular types of edges.
- available indicators of water resistance by 95%.
- increase (compared with the above-described series) acoustic characteristics.
- damage resistance and durability.
addition to the standard series of manufacturers offer more specialized and designed for specific tasks.
- Acoustic Series.There are samples that contribute to reducing noise, creating a more comfortable working environment.This series includes models of Ultima (Ultima), Sabbia (Sabbia), Optima (Optima), and others.
- Sanitary series.Plates are designed for use in food factories and hospitals.Characterized by a high rate of moisture resistance, smooth surface, and the presence of a special coating, limiting the growth of bacteria.Among the models in the series - Bioguard (Bioguard), Mylar (Mylar), and others.
- Water-resistant series, designed for use in rooms with high humidity series models Newton (Newtone), Keramaguard (Ceramaguard).
Tip!For the installation of water-resistant panels are encouraged to acquire corrosion resistant profiles for mounting Trulok (Trulok).
Furthermore, the market can find a design options plates that various different design and size.As
To mount the suspended ceiling is required:
- Basic material - tile ceiling Armstrong.
- guides bearing rack.
- Corners for installation on the perimeter of the room.
Installation is so:
- slugger level around the perimeter walls of the room.
- As planned line secured area.
- Carrying strips are mounted on the suspension, mounted to the ceiling tile.
Tip!Do not make the distance between adjacent suspensions too large, such a material saving can lead to the collapse of the ceiling.
- After installation of longitudinal rails mounted transverse rails so that the ceiling appeared broken up into squares of 600 × 600 mm, which corresponds to the size of the standard plate.In
- ready cell plate set.It is clear that in rare cases it is possible the entire surface of the ceiling on the flat squares.As a rule, extreme ranks receive less in size.To install these cell Armstrong ceiling tile must be cut to the desired size.This can be the most common office knife.
- in targeted cell mounted luminaires, after which installation of the ceiling can be regarded as completed.
So, ceiling type Armstrong - a great choice for a wide variety of areas.They are inexpensive, practical, and installation of ceiling Armstrong does not require serious stroy.podgotovki.In addition, a wide range of ceiling panels allows you to choose in accordance with existing needs.
