How can depict the sky at a stretch ceiling?What options offers us the current market?The effect is achieved by the so-called "starry sky"?Let's try to answer these questions.
How long have you looked at the sky?Not a glimpse to see whether the rain was not going, and admire it?Light clouds on a sunny day, with heavy rain clouds, stars and the moon?
If you live in a big city - the issue is likely to become rhetorical. Smog and standing next to skyscrapers in the afternoon allow you to see just a small patch of sky through a dirty cloud of exhaust.Stars ... you still remember, what are they?At night, above the head can be seen only the light of lanterns and advertising billboards .
course ceiling stretch Heaven will never turn into a real sky, like a wooden Pinocchio into a real boy.However, it is always there and will always be ready to remind that there are things beyond th
How to portray the sky on the ceiling?
There are two main ways of forming an image on the surface of a stretch ceiling.
print on canvas
Most often it is this way creates a tension ceiling with clouds.Good to know about making such ceilings ?
- most commonly used for printing large-format printer in combination with solvent-based (particularly resistant) ink.The maximum printing width in one run depends on the capabilities of the printer and is usually 3.2 meters.
Please note: there are printers capable of printing on the five-meter canvas, but they are rare because of the cost of approaching the budget of a small African state.
- Alternative method - UV-printing.Upon irradiation with ultraviolet light special ink instantly transformed into a solid thin film .Thus printing is possible not only on the film or PVC fabric: the image can be applied on hard surfaces, including irregular or ribbed.
- If you installed suspended ceiling sky with clouds, the perfect complement to it will be light.Light sources can be located above the ceiling and below.
- hidden behind the ceiling lighting system require the use of a translucent fabric.It hides the rough ceiling and all communications, but will miss the scattered light.
- Highlighting the bottom may be hiding in the recesses of drywall or moldings of polystyrene.The second method allows you to mount the backlight after being suspended ceiling with clouds mounted.The first method is usually mounted to the ceiling of the web tension.
- Regardless of the location of the backlight, the best source of light for her - LED strip.They combine highest efficiency with minimal heating, very reliable, durable and provide a uniform illumination of the entire perimeter of the ceiling or the whole of its area, depending on its location.
Important: The power supply for the LED strips is much less reliable.The power converter is best installed in an accessible location with adequate ventilation to allow heat dissipation.In addition, if necessary, the device is easy to replace.
- Stretch ceilings Clouds better mounted in spacious rooms.Strung in close closet, a ceiling will look rather out of place.
Illumination "starry sky»
If the suspended ceiling cloud requires print on canvas, the suspended ceiling night sky using, primarily, special lighting techniques.They can be combined with an art print, but not necessarily (see. Diode illumination of a ceiling - a description of the construction and installation).
The method of forming the image - in a selective illumination areas of the web. Usually on.The image can be static or dynamic;in the latter case the light sources are controlled by the microcomputer unpretentious .
What methods can be used to form the backlight ?
- ceiling is stretched in two stages, on which is located a light source.The first web - opaque perforated, the second - translucent.
- system optical fibers forms a light spot on the surface of the translucent fabric.Typically, a single light source is used.This scheme allows you to create a dynamic image to sunbathe and fading stars flying comets in the sky and so on.
- In some cases the fibers are derived outside the ceiling down.For light scattering can be used small crystals crystal (see. Installation of LED illumination on the ceiling, the optimal solution).
Conclusion Of course, when choosing a scheme pay attention to its value.Art print increases the cost of the ceiling is at least twice;installation of fiber optic lighting is expensive, too.The rest - all at your fingertips.Success in repairs!
