Suspended ceilings are the most light-weight design, not only in terms of weight, but also in terms of installation.Below we talk about it and see the video - how to assemble the rack ceiling with his hands.For clarity, the principles will be considered a simple, single-level design, which is used for the installation of all the tools and principles.
As has been said, we will look at how to build a rack ceiling and also, for comparison, we learn how to assemble ceiling Armstrong, because the principle of installation of both designsvery similar.You could even say more - the construction of suspended ceilings fundamentally similar to each other
Usually, it starts with measuring and assembly of the ceiling is not an exception.Height is chosen arbitrarily and are put on the wall mark.They can be set with the help of the water level.If this process takes pla
- Tags we already haveand now needs to be done between the control line.In small rooms such as the kitchen or bathroom, this is easily done with the help of the rules, but if you need a line of 2 meters or more, you can use a paint line (choklayn).The thread is pulled like a string choklayna and abruptly released - the result is a flat line, marked by methylene blue.
We continue to consider how to assemble rack ceiling and will be installed near the wall in a corner of the profile.This profile is also referred to as the eaves, so rather be how to assemble the ceiling cornice.
- profile is marked by 30-40cm, and it makes a hole, then transfer them stenciled on the wall.Although it is possible to do in a different way - to drill holes in the wall through the cornice - so more likely that you will not get to the edge of the seam between the tiles.To fix the bracket using dowels with a diameter of 6 mm.
After assembly of the ceiling cornice is over - time to install the stringers.The distance between them should be from 70 to 150cm - everything will depend on the load on the skeleton from the ceiling lights.Recent stringers are placed in 10 cm from the wall, that there is no slack panels.
- to main ceiling stringers can be fastened with long screws with dowels, as shown in the pictures, or by means of wire hangers.The distance between the fixings may not exceed 70cm.
- To profiles went strictly on the plane, they negate the rule or long level.On large areas use a nylon thread, tying it under the frame.For this purpose in the wall ledges on opposite sides of the room are screwed screws and thread attached to them.
frame for the ceiling is ready and we will continue to consider how to assemble the ceiling panels of plastic or aluminum, which has absolutely no value in terms of installation.Measure the distance from wall to wall and subtract the 5-6mm - this is the length of the panel.Installation can begin at either end of the ceiling, and even from the middle - still, each panel is set to latch stringers.
Do not forget the ceiling lights.Bussing we ready, then there is guidance - mark up on them and make the cutter bar of the desired diameter of the hole.Try to respect the width of the rail hole appeared in the middle, so the lamp will look more presentable, because of the symmetry, and the panel itself does not lose strength (see. Flush ceiling lights - and specific types of installation)
When installing panels are gaps between them, which are closed inserts complete rack ceiling.This finish work can be done in parallel with the installation of rails, or after installation.
- If we work in a small room such as the kitchen or bathroom, the assembly of suspended ceilings will take us 3-4 hours together with mounting frame.Additional time may leave unless on wiring electrical wires.
- Installation Armstrong's installation is very similar to the rack unit, as the gathering ceiling can only be suspended by a frame.The framework itself to two types of ceilings, of course, is different, but, nevertheless, the principle remains the device.
marking the ceiling Armstrong is exactly the same as for the rack and the control line marked screwed corner or ledge (you can call, whatever - will be correct, and so and so).
- Now begins the differences in some of the nuances of installing two ceiling .This page has assembled ceiling Armstrong - video and text information, which will serve for easy comparison of the two mounting structures
After installing the bracket mounted basic T-shaped guide through 120cm from each otheralong the long wall .If the length of 360sm own is not enough, for the profiles provided by the connection.On one guide spent an average of 3 suspension, but in places you can put an additional docking console.
- installing basic guide, mark the ceiling so that the profile of the wall was no more than half the tiles, that is not more than 30cm .After fixing the basic profile set cross rails, the distance between them must also be 120cm.During installation, make sure that the profiles intersect at an angle 90⁰, because it affects the installation of the tiles.
- When you have a ready frame with a cell 120 cm, you can decide how to collect the ceiling Armstrong .That is, the plate may be 600 × 600 × 600mm or 1200mm, and in accordance with it, and you set the jumpers.That is, the cell will turn you or square - 600 × 600 mm or rectangular - 600 × 1200mm.
Armstrong ceiling tiles installed very easily - just embedded in the cell skeleton.This panel can have a different structure and texture, variety, so the design of the ceiling.They change the look and stripes, and sectors, and staggered.
- Now you already know how to collect ceiling Armstrong, but do not forget about lighting.The ceiling of this type are usually installed one lamp on 5m2 .But this is not a prerequisite as using lighting can decorate the ceiling, creating a certain pattern.
recommendation.After installing a suspended ceiling frame for rack or Armstrong - take care of ceiling lights.That is, before installing the panels is the time to make the layout of cables.
all wiring must be packed in the cable channel in the form of a corrugated tube made of plastic or metal and attached to the main ceiling.In places the wire taps are usually not cut - loop is made with flexi hose.It is cut with a wire already when you connect the lamp.
Installation Armstrong suspended ceilings can vary, creating a multi-level devices, and setting the direction of the diagonal panels.In any case, the purchase of parts of a ceiling attached to them assembly instructions that will help you in your work.But you can always include a fantasy, a variety of ceiling design, while maintaining the basic principles of installation.
