In order to establish a two-level ceiling of the GCR, a sufficient construction skills, as well as some knowledge of geometry.Under this condition, the complexity of such a structure depends only on your desire and imagination (see. The ceiling of the GCR with their hands: detailed installation instructions).
Installation of two-level ceiling of plasterboard with their hands will give you the opportunity to complement the design of the room beautiful and modern decorative element.
- Before you start work, paint, the ceiling should look like on paper.Desirably, the scheme was performed in the right scale.Calculate the necessary size and put them on the drawing.
- then repel the level of the top of the ceiling.Do it with a water level and otbivochnogo cord .
- Next, attach the metal dowels through the UD-guides (marking them Russian - PN).The guide insert the CD-rack profiles (Russian designation - PP).Attach them to the suspensions of metal screws.Suspensions should be pre-attached plugs to the main ceiling.
- When finished with the frame for the top level, proceed to the installation batten for the lower part.To this end, move the drawing at this level to the ceiling and secure bridge for mounting on its perimeter (see. The framework for the ceiling of plasterboard: design features).
If the ceiling has a radius design
- Radius When drawing the ceiling, guiding profiles for the second level is necessary to make an incision, so they can be bent.This can be done with scissors for metal.
Attention!When the inner radius at UD -profile cut triangles, for its uniform bending.When the image has an outer radius, makes it simple cuts.
- further guide bar is attached with screws (for line drawing) to rackmount profiles and jumpers.
- When fix all PN-profile, cut into pieces of rack the bar, equal height boxes.Attach them to the guide profile .
- Then incise new UD-bar and connect it to the frame of the second level, parallel to the first guide plate.The second bent PN-profile must be installed so that it was convenient to paste the PP profiles.
- At the same time attached to the wall with UD-profile dowels.In this design, insert the CD-profiles, cutting them to size.
- frame to the second level was strong and rigid, lock rack profile suspension.
frame ceiling with rectangular boxes
Installation two-level ceiling of plasterboard, which has a rectangular configuration, and must begin with the drafting of its scheme .
- repel the first level for the PN-profile.
- Then set the frame for the top of the ceiling.The guide profiles are fixed to the wall with dowels, strictly on the level.
- Then paste PP-profile in Mon-bar and attach it to the ceiling using dowels and spacers.
Attention!Control the level of the fastening structure by tie nylon cord.Otherwise, it may occur deflections.
- Hangers attach with screws to the guide rails of metal.
- Then fasten the guide PN-profiles on the perimeter of the lower level.
- Then grinder cut mullion bar at a rate equal to the height of the lower level and fix the pieces on the PN-profile screws for metal.
- Then fasten a new guide bar to the segments of the PP, and parallel to the wall - is another.
- In parallel UD-profile insert rack segments and secure them with screws.When a large area of the lower level, you will need an additional rack to fix the profile to the main ceiling spacers.
note that PP rack-mounted strips in increments of 40cm, 50 or 60. At the same flexing their need to put more often .
Installation sheets GCR start on flat areas of the ceiling.Fasten them with screws on wood using a power screwdriver or drill, running at low revs.
Fastening sheets to the frame Radius
- GCR cut off a paint knife to the desired size and is fastened to the furring flat areas.When the sheet can not be cut precisely, first attach it to the frame, and then trim to the required size.
- Plasterboard mount staggered to not receive cross-joints.
- Then proceed to the installation of the FCL on the radius plots.When the radius is large enough, measured and cut off the right piece of drywall, wetting his back toward the water.Since the material can bend.
- Then screw the soaked piece on the end of the radius, it just, pressing to obtain the desired shape.This operation is performed slowly and very carefully.If the ceiling has small radii, you can sew the ends of the small pieces of the GCR.
established plasterboard ceiling should stand without further treatment a few days .This is necessary to ensure that the joints are not formed on the cracks.
Installing the sheets on a rectangular frame
two-level ceiling installation of plasterboard rectangular takes almost as much as the figure (see. This split-level ceilings plasterboard with their hands: a detailed review and video tutorial).
first sewed up all horizontal surfaces, then proceed to the vertical ends of the ceiling.Do not cut all the sheets GCR same time, the best option - to do so in the course of work, precisely measuring out the required size of each sheet.
Although what will be the finishing time of the ceiling, it must be primed, using a roller, brush or sprayer.It is necessary for good adhesion of putty and GCR.
After the primer dries, all joints must be glued to the masking grid, and then their putty.In all corners of ceiling structures using putty attach metal perforated corners.
ceiling with radius form, you can use the special arched corner.They also attached putty, but they need to be pre-fix screws or staples.
then zashpaklyuyte all screw heads on the surface of the GCR.When the composition is dry, you can start all Shpatlevanie ceiling.Do not cook a lot at once putty mixture, because of its application to the complex shape design - the process time-consuming.
putty should be applied to the surface of the ceiling in two layers.Here, the first of them should dry completely.When you're done with Shpatlevanie, start gluing baguettes.
This can be done using a plaster solution or construction adhesive, for example - "liquid nails".When the moldings are installed, start grouting the ceiling.
This operation is extremely important, especially if the ceiling will then be painted.On this basis, produce grout carefully.On the GCR should not remain surpluses putty composition, passes and valleys.After the grouting can start finishing the assembled structure.
