Stretch ceiling systems, so-called PVC ceilings are the most progressive way to finishing as the ceiling in terms of design and in terms of speed of erection of the structure.However, simple at first glance, the design is quite complex by their own hands, so the quality is really set ceilings PVC is often only by experienced installers having, among other things, a special installation equipment.
nearly every case without calling on experts from the house will not do as required before installing competently perform measurements premises, and then make them PVC fabric the desired size, which later must be installed already.
In this article we'll show you how to fix the profile for ceilings PVC how to perform installation of web technology to discuss other subtleties.How to choose PVC ceiling film, read the article PVC Film for suspended ceilings: advantages and disadvantages of the material manufacturers and application features.
Component parts for the
installation of suspended ceilings
to build indoor ceilings, need to prepare the following materials and fasteners:
- Baguette , aka PVC profiles for suspended ceilings.
- PVC fabric , knit of several rolls of film of PVC and bordered on the perimeter of the so-called spear.
- batten - inlay mounting to close the gap between the door and the wall.
- dowels and screws for attaching baguette.More
profile for suspended ceilings
Baguette is not only PVC, but also aluminum.
Depending on the method of attachment is the profile of the following types:
- trim - the most common and serving for fastening to the walls around the perimeter of the room (like mounting the guide profile ceilings).
- Ceiling - used if you can not mount to the wall.Mounted directly on the edges of the ceiling.
- connection (separation) - applicable if the floor space is too big (over 60m2) and there is the possibility of sagging under its own weight fabric.It allows you to mount the ceilings of PVC in the form of several individual installation sections.
Factory length of the baguette is typically 2.5 meters, but the need for on-site assembly can be cut into segments of the desired length using a grinder.
The installation of suspended ceilings begins with fixing moldings around the perimeter of the room, and only then proceed to mount and stretch PVC cloth (see. PVC baguette for suspended ceilings - the types and methods of attachment).About
canvas and PVC harpoon mounting system
Manufacturing PVC fabric made from several pieces cut from a roll of material desired color, by soldering.The width of the rolls glossy film is typically 1.3, 1.5 and 1.8m, matte - 1.5, 2 and 2.7m.Welds resulting spikes segments receive direct, subtle and almost unnoticeable.After making the size of the web under tension PVC ceiling by about 5-15% less than the actual area of the ceiling space, which provides specifically for the possibility of tension and achieve a perfectly flat surface.
Regarding harpoon, it is a flexible plate made of a thick and rigid compared with the film of polyvinyl chloride, which is welded along the perimeter of the web and serving for securing the latter in the boundary baguette.This element is called a harpoon due to the similarity of the structure: Plate is easy enough to include in the profile, and without any additional manipulation securely it is attached.
Tip!Harpoon mounting system suspended ceilings is one of the most reliable and able to withstand not only the load of the stretched PVC cloth, but also additional loads such as the weight of water in the flood, organized by the neighbors from the top.
Technology Mounting tension ceilings
Tension ceilings PVC provides the following installation sequence:
- Along the perimeter of the premises and to meet the strict horizontal signage on the walls are fixed PVC profiles for suspended ceilings.
- Next canvas hung from the ceiling by means of special hooks and warmed the room up to 50-60 degrees by a heat gun.
- After the film becomes soft and supple, start fixing it, driving the spear leaf inside the baguette with the help of a spatula construction.Pulling the film harpoon prints straightens and securely attached PVC fabric on the ceiling.
- to PVC stretch ceiling finally tightened, the room is allowed to cool.The cooling film shrinks, and the surface is perfectly flat.
- final stage of assembly involves closing the technological gap formed by the characteristic design of wall profiles, decorative plastic panel strip.These flashings are typically made from the same modified PVC that harpoon and bought a baguette with the same footage.Batten fixed to the baguette with special teeth provided in each of the fastening elements.
Tip!At the end of PVC ceilings must be dried from dust and other contaminants that may have occurred during installation.
This installation manual suspended ceilings complete.Although independently implement each stage of the technology is difficult, you will have an idea of how to construct ceilings, and will be able to assess the quality of the installation when it is running outside specialists.
