Pinion aluminum ceilings are aluminum structures, which is attached to the ceiling with a special tire profile.
Installing suspended ceilings allows you as soon as possible to get presentable-looking ceiling - in this case, regardless of whether the condition is self ceilings.
design and features aluminum suspended ceilings
What is an aluminum rack ceiling
Ready aluminum ceiling is a single plane, collected from the same type of aluminum elements - rails.Everything for aluminum ceiling rails can be used different sizes and colors, which opens quite wide opportunities for design use aluminum ceilings.
most common ceiling aluminum two configurations:
- Smooth - assembled from identical aluminum slats in the minimum.Installation of aluminum ceilings easier, but it looks ready to ceiling not presentable.
- With alternating profiles - mounted aluminum rails with inserts intermediate sections between them.Intermediate ceiling aluminum profile can differ from the basic profiles (slats) are not only the size, but also color - while the ceiling is even more spectacular.
themselves slats that make up the surface of the aluminum ceiling mounted on a tire longitudinal (traverse).Each crosspiece located on the lower side fastening, the shape of which matches the shape of the aluminum profile.
With this design, installation of aluminum ceilings maximum simplifies the profiles are snapped on the boom without using fasteners .
beams can be fastened to the ceiling in two ways: in large enough areas traverse necessarily attached to the ceiling by using hangers, and a small area in the rooms(for example, in the bathroom or toilet) tire aluminum ceiling can be freely laid on the wall mounting bracket without fixing the ceiling.
However, in this case more difficult to mount an aluminum ceiling profile, since it is not rigidly fixed rail can be moved.
Tip!If the width of the room exceeds 150 mm, it is better to use the same suspension system, since a length of the tire there is a risk of her sagging, and as a consequence - to change the geometry of the ceiling.
Advantages of aluminum ceilings
Aluminum suspended ceilings - is not just a beautiful decoration technology.
Their technical characteristics are such that the functionality of these ceilings superior to many other ceiling structures.
- Aluminium profiles for ceiling immune to external influences, in the first place - to excess moisture and high temperatures.
That's why aluminum suspended ceilings are installed in bathrooms, kitchens and other areas - where many other ways to trim unacceptable.
- simple installation of aluminum suspended ceilings is another of their dignity.By purchasing everything you need, you can set the amount of such ceiling - with the usual skill, you will be quite enough.
- Another huge plus aluminum ceiling systems is that they can be installed on curved surfaces.Aluminum ceiling rack is easy enough to bend and gives an opportunity to establish tent or dome-shaped rack ceiling.
Tip!To mount the curved ceiling, you need to purchase multiple mounting tires and install them on different levels.In this case the fixture will be sufficiently reliable, and curved aluminum profile rails hide vertical drop.
- Speaking about the benefits of slatted aluminum structures, we can not lose sight of the aesthetic component.
Because the ceilings are assembled from aluminum painted with powder paint is very resistant elements, their appearance is obtained very attractive.
broad palette makes it possible to choose exactly the color that is best integrated into the design of the entire building.
installation rack aluminum ceiling
To install a ceiling, we need ...
Before proceeding with the installation rack aluminum ceiling, we need to buy everything you need.
Typically, the kit includes a ceiling rack:
- Tire mounting (yoke) - depending on the size of the room in which we set the ceiling.
- Profile start - Area, which is mounted on the wall around the perimeter of the room.
- Profiles main - the main elements of which are, in fact, will meet our aluminum rack ceiling.The most common is aluminum rake ceiling 100 mm in width, but the market is represented by other models.
- intermediate profiles - in a number of models hanging suspended ceilings are used to connect the main profiles.
Tip!Select profiles for strip ceilings can be not only in the building supermarkets, but also on the internet by typing in the search engine are prompted, for example - "aluminum profile for the ceiling."First - determine which model you prefer, and only then proceed to the procurement.
Pendants - metal plates or rods, which are used to secure the frame to the capital ceiling.If the distance between the ceiling and the planned level of overlap is 100 mm or less, you can use the plate hangers.For longer distances fit spring hangers, rod type.
Tools for ceiling installation, we will need the following:
- Impact Drill or punch.
- screwdriver to connect parts of the carcass.
- level and measuring tape for marking.
- Metal shears for cutting profiles.
When all you need is available - you can begin to layout the ceiling.
start counting with the establishment of the level of our future ceiling.Minimum indent from the ceiling of 35-40 mm, maximum - to limit the length of suspensions.
- As set level around the perimeter of the room holding the line.It is this line will determine the installation of our ceiling.
- Tip!To ensure that our future will be quite smooth ceiling, the line should be checked by a level and - control the distance from the line to the floor every 1-1.5 m.
- then be marked on the ceiling.Depending on how much traverses we install, we need to apply one or more lines of markup.This optimal distance from the yoke to the wall - 400-500 mm and the distance between adjacent traverses - 1000-1200 mm.With this step, the bus carrying the ceiling provide the necessary rigidity.
When we finished counting - begin to collect the frame and mount the ceiling itself.
mounting frame and assembling
frame to the ceiling mount in the following sequence:
- first stage - setting the starting profile along the perimeter.For this putting a start profile applied to a horizontal contact line and via the perforator drilled therein, and the wall of the hole.It is more convenient to do it together: one captures the profile, and the second - drills, holding hammer with two hands.
- The drilled holes insert plastic dowels, and then - finally fasten the profile of scoring in the dowel screws for rapid installation.Optimal step mounting is 500 mm.
- When the profile is fixed - Getting fixing hangers to the ceiling.To fasten traverse suspensions attached.
then proceed directly to the assembly of the ceiling:
- Before mounting the tire on each ceiling aluminum rail is cut to size.
easiest way to make an easy notch awl or knife to the cutting line, notching edge slats and metal shears to break off the profile of notches along the line.
- cropped rail is lifted and snapped onto mounting tires.The ends of the rails at the same time should be instituted in the starting profile.
- strips inserted between the main intermediate profiles.
- last rail when necessary cut along.It can "lead" spiral, but that's okay - we tucked it into the guide profile, and she straightened.
are completing the installation of the connection of the built-in lighting fixtures.For this purpose, pre-rails should be cut a hole.
In fact, the installation of aluminum ceilings - not such a complicated procedure, as it may seem from the description.So if you are a responsible approach the case and examine carefully the recommendations in this article, the quality rack ceiling from an aluminum structure is practically guaranteed to you!
