Suspended ceilings came to us from Germany in the mid 90s.At that time, as well as all new, they were very expensive and, therefore, did not receive wide distribution.
Currently, everything is different.Plastic suspended ceilings made available for almost everyone.And are becoming more common.This is due primarily to the high decorative qualities, a variety of applications and ease of use.
plastic Pinion ceilings are ideal for installation in the bathroom, the kitchen and even in the indoor pool because they are not afraid of moisture and are easy to clean.
We turn the device directly to the question of the ceiling in his house.
First of all, need a set of instruments:
- Punch or screwdrivers
- level building
- Shears for metal
And set of rack ceiling
- adjustable suspension
- Support rail (traverse)
- plastic slats decorative
- corner or U-shaped
Once you pick up the entire set of
Technology of work
plastic ceiling rack is easy to mount even a specialist.The only thing you need to pay attention to some aspects about which will be discussed further (see further. Suspended ceiling made of plastic panels: advantages, disadvantages, and especially mounting)
all technology will be divided into several stages:
- preparatory work
- mounting frame
- installation of decorative panels
First you need to mark the perimeter of the room, which will be installed rack plastic ceiling.For this retreat at least 5 centimeters from the ceiling.Next, using the level of doing strictly horizontal line around the perimeter of the room (see. How to make the PVC ceiling panels: the basic operation and troubleshooting)
perform this step more quickly by using the laser level.
Note: the installation of the ceiling should be done only after the completion of finishing works in the room.
- First set angular profile. Depending on the wall material, the screws used for fastening a length of less than 35 mm or dowel-nail diameter of 6 mm.Step fasteners maximum 0.4 meters.If the angular profile is too long - it is cut with scissors for metal.In no case do not use a cutting machine for cutting
- Next set adjustable suspensions .They consist of three elements: a spring clip;rod with a hook, attached to the boom;thrust ring is attached to the ceiling.Step installation of one meter.First hanger set at a distance of 5-10 centimeters from the wall.
- Then you can begin to install the mounting profile (traverse) .If the ceiling in the room has a good geometry and it is not necessary to hide the problem of communication, it can be attached directly to traverse it.In all other cases you need to use suspensions.
Tip: despite the fact that the traverse is a universal mounting rail, it is best to use a set of one manufacturer.For example, if you use a rack ceiling
Alkonplast, then you need to use that traverse this manufacturer.Only in this case it will be possible to guarantee perfect docking elements.
- decorative slats should be installed.To do this, you must remove their protective film.The length of the rack should be five millimeters less than the distance between the walls of the room.To cut the rail, it is necessary to make an incision on metal scissors on both sides to continue to break down.To trim, you can use hacksaw.Thereafter, it is latched in the yoke.Finishing rack usually is wider than the space in which to be installed.In this case, it must be trimmed.To do this, first of all mark up the rail, then an incision with a knife along the line markings and straighten the rail.If you use an open rack, then further between them are established between the rack insert.
- Installation is carried out on the built-in fixtures have a ceiling mounted.Holes can be made for them mounted on a ceiling or on fixed rails not.In the first case it is easier to do the layout, but you need to be careful, no matter what damage the plastic roof rack (see. Recessed spotlights: types and mounting options)
drill hole drill, which is attached to the nozzle-metal crown.The diameter of the crown is chosen according to the diameter of the lamp.
Note: All ceiling wiring, including issues on the lights should be mounted and secured prior to installing the carcass suspended ceilings.
- concludes stage will serve as installation of decorative moldings.They will give a more complete view of the structure and accuracy (see. Ceiling PVC moldings: Features installation)
After this installation can be considered complete.
