Such is our people that everything tends to make on their own, for which he deserves credit.Installation of suspended ceilings - videos and text materials to help you to take another step toward independence.Self installation is not particularly difficult, and in a small room you can spend a few hours.
Installing suspended ceilings
Accessories rack ceiling consists of the wall bracket, stringers and frame hangers.Also included rack panels and inserts them, but need more plugs and screws for mounting.
The tool kit can include hammer, screwdriver, tape measure, level, rules and tin snips.You will also need the cutter to cut the holes for the fixtures and jigsaw for cutting panels (see. Suspended ceilings for kitchen: assemble yourself)
Layout and installation frame
- heightsuspended ceiling frame is chosen arbitrarily and put on the wall mark.Carry it with the help of a laser or water level in all corners of the room and make the line of control.However, if the installation of the ceiling rack is happening in the room, lined with tiles, for example, in the bathroom, it is possible to dispense with the level - will serve as a reference point the seam between the tiles.
- In a small room the control line between the marks can be made under a rule or a long level, but installation ceilings in large rooms is too much trouble - you need to do a lot of labels .Therefore, for an estimated line used choklayn (paint line), which can be stretched between the marks at any distance.The thread is pulled and released rapidly, leaving on the wall of a smooth, clear line.
- now have a control line on which we will install the wall surface area.For this purpose, drill a hole through the profile 30-40cm, and then, putting the cornice to the wall, move the mark for drilling to a vertical surface.Drills for the wall itself left her marks.
- But there is another way, but he requires a certain skill in handling the punch - drilled through the wall of the profile, accelerating thus the production process.There is also another positive aspect - for drilling through the wall of the eaves, you will not get at the seam between the tiles.When the drill hits the edge of the tile, it slips, and the hole can be displaced.
- We continue to parse how to install the rack ceiling and proceed to the installation of the stringers.In order to cut the profile, measure the distance from wall to wall, and defraud him 5-6mm of free running.If the plenum turns shallow, the stringers can be attached with dowels and screw length, as shown in the photos and videos.
- If the plenum gets deep, you can use a wire hanger, which will lower the frame is much lower screws .Sami suspensions also attached to the main ceiling of 6mm in diameter dowels and screws, 4-5mm thick.
- offset stringers much easier when they are installed and you can use a rule or a long building level .But in large spaces such instruments difficult to do so under the frame pull the nylon thread.For this purpose in the wall corners of the bottom screws are screwed and thread attached to them.
Council.If the room in which is mounted ceiling, it does not have much clearance, then it should be done a minimum depth.But takes into account the length of the lighting that will be between the ceiling and add to it in the zone 1-1,5sm repayment of thermal radiation from the bulb.
recommendation.If the wall surface area is too long and rests against the wall - do not cut off the residue completely.Separate the lower horizontal shelf and folding angle 90⁰ - turn to conjugate the wall.
- When the frame is ready, you can begin to install the rack panels .Cut the panels on the same principle as the stringer - by 5-6mm smaller than the distance between the walls.Reiki is most convenient to cut the jigsaw, and, and aluminum and plastic (see. Suspended ceiling rack for the bathroom: features set and installation)
- begin installation of rails can be any edge of the ceiling and even the middle - still on the stringers have this mountingslots.Make sure that the panels tightly snap profiles.
- You have, in fact, know how to install a ceiling rack, but do not forget about lighting.The holes in the panels for the lighting is better to do on earth, prior to installation.For drilling, use the cutter, suitable for the diameter of the lamp, for example, the diameter of the holes for the embedded device is a point equal to the distance between the fastening mustache.
- Make sure that the hole had across the width of the center panel, thereby you will not break the strength of the profiled rail.Lamps for suspended ceilings can be installed directly connecting them during installation of the panel.
- After installing the panels are gaps between them, which are closed with special inserts.This can be done during the installation of racks, and can be and after final installation.Then rack ceiling ready for use.
Conclusion We reviewed easy installation, but also rail and set diagonally and in tiers.Installation instructions strip ceiling is in each set of panels, but to build more complex structures you need practical experience.
