Options finishing the ceiling there is a great variety, from traditional whitewash before the installation of stretch fabrics.One of the most practical material for finishing the ceiling is a PVC ceiling tiles.This embodiment is one of the most cost and, at the same time creates incredible opportunities for decoration.Use the ceiling tiles for decoration can be in all areas - from the hallway to the bedroom.
often referred to as Masters ceiling tile adhesive, and the name reflects exactly the way it is installed.Typically, ceiling tiles PVC has a square shape, a much rarer rectangular patterns as applicable seamless ceiling tiles.Manufacturers offer tiles in a wide range of colors, in addition, it can be smooth or have a pronounced relief.
Tiles can have different sizes, but even the overall sample weigh a bit, so they are easy to mount.With work well and can handle one man.
How to choose a ceiling tile?
As mentioned, PVC ceiling t
quality pvc tile ceiling is geometrically correct size .Each tile in the party should have the right shape and size of the parties must be met exactly.
Angles tiles must be straight and clear, rounding and unacceptable jam .Otherwise, it will not be able to achieve normal engages tiles and ceiling will look sloppy.
edges of the tiles should also be smooth, no damage and should not be seen crumbling .If the tile with a picture, it must be clear, and the tone coloration - the same for all parties.
After you select the form of tiles, you need to calculate how much material is required for repairs.This value depends on the size of the room and the selected type of tile.
For example, it is necessary to repair the room 5 meters long and 4 meters wide.If you choose square tiles measuring 50 × 50 - cm, the need for repair of 10 × 8 tiles, ie 80 pieces.
In the case when placing the tiles on the length or width of the room to do only whole tiles can not, the material will have to be cut.Thus, if the gap distance less than half of the tile (in this example, 25 cm), then every two clearance must purchase one tile.If the width of the gap more, for each gap will have to spend on the entire tile.
For example, if the room dimensions 5.3 by 4.2 meters, the whole tiles 80 apart, we need an additional 10 halves (5 integers) and 8 whole tiles, i.e. the total amount would be 80 + 5 +8 = 93 tiles.
Tip!In case of deformation or other damage to the tiles during the work necessary to get 10-15% more material than out after the calculation.
choice of adhesive material such as pvc tile ceiling is attached to the substrate using an adhesive.
Today, you can buy different kinds of adhesives.
- Water-based adhesive .This is the most environmentally friendly material, since it includes only natural ingredients.The downside is that such formulations may develop microorganisms.Therefore, they are added bactericides.Also, water-based glue dries long.
- adhesive having a basis in the solvent .This solution of the polymeric substance in a liquid capable of rapidly evaporating.The solvent may be an alcohol, acetone, etc.
- Hot melt .It formulations that do not contain solvents or water, they are made of thermoplastic polymers with additives.
- adhesive resin (silicone acrylate and so forth.).This compounds that quickly freeze under certain conditions.Cooking should be a glue in small portions.
to paste PVC ceiling tiles, you can use the following compositions:
- Universal adhesive .Typically, this solvent based compositions, they allow to glue the tiles, even in places where it is difficult to ensure a snug fit surfaces.
Tip!If you choose a universal adhesive, should pay attention to restrictions on use.Not all the convoys are allowed to apply for internal works.
- glue "Liquid Nails» .Name glue speaks for itself, it turns a solid connection.The composition is applied in small drops indented from each other, it provides economical use of material.
- special composition intended for gluing of ceiling tiles.This option is the best.
Stick PVC ceiling plate is easy, however, and in the process has its own nuances and "tricks."
ceiling must be cleaned from the previous coating and aligned (see. Can I glue the ceiling tiles in the whitewash?).Slight difference in height in the range of 1-2 mm are allowed.Before sticker tile ceiling primed recommended, especially if it is wood or plywood surface is coated.
Where to put the wiring?
When using a material such as PVC panels for ceiling, the question may arise as to do with wiring running across the ceiling?
There are several possible options:
- at the preparation stage to perform shtroblenie plates and make the hidden wiring.
- If the chandelier is located in the center of the room, then stick the tiles is recommended to start from the location of the lamp.In this case, the wire will be located between the tiles.In place of the four corners of the ground tiles will have to make the undercut, but then this defect will be hidden glass hanging chandelier.
way of arranging the tiles
When working with a material such as PVC plates to the ceiling, there are many options for its placement.
- Most often, begin to glue the tiles from the center of the room.This option is particularly successful if the center is planned to hang a chandelier.In this case, along both diagonals room pull strings to determine the center of the room.Through the data points should be carried out two perpendicular lines crosswise.The first four tiles are pasted so that they converge in the corners of the marked center point.Then the tiles are placed on the marked diagonals close to each other.
- If the room has a rectangular shape and the chandelier is located not in the center, you have to act differently.First you need to spend two perpendicular through a point location chandeliers parallel walls.In the resulting right angles spend bisector, separating them in half.Further ceiling tile pvc glued as well as in the first case.
- happens that start pasting from the center of the room is inappropriate.For example, if you install the tiles at the center can not install it so that the parties were strictly parallel to the wall.Or the room has a small area, and pasting "from the center" will lead to a high consumption of material.In these cases, it is recommended to start pasting from the junction of the ceiling and the wall, which is located opposite the entrance.
- What if the walls of the small width gaps remain?If the gap distance is not more than 15 mm, it closes the fillet, which is glued around the room.Gaps of greater width close stripes desired size, cut off from the tiles.
Creating two-color coatings
It should be noted that the ceiling made of PVC tiles can be arranged in different ways.For example, using two color tiles interesting effect can be achieved.
Sticker tiles in a checkerboard pattern. Once the center of the room layout and performance (construction diagonal), the tile can be pasted in a checkerboard pattern, alternating between the two colors.With this embodiment it is important that the edges of the tiles were strictly parallel walls.
- tiles sticker "snake." layout made similarly, taping begins with a marked center point.This version looks more impressive in the rooms, the form of which is close to the square.
Finishing the ceiling tiles - it is inexpensive and, at the same time, aesthetically attractive solution.If the budget planned repairs, this alternative design of the ceiling is one of the best.
big plus is the fact that work on the tiles, you can label yourself.To get the accurate and beautiful cover, should be given time to carefully markup.After completion of this operation can be performed sticker very quickly.
