Bathroom - a room with high humidity, and therefore relevant to the walls, floor and ceiling are special.But, nevertheless, materials and mounting options are many, and how do the ceiling in the bathroom, will depend on your personal preferences. ceiling can be simply plastered and whitewashed, but can also be mounted and ceiling gypsum board (see. The ceiling in the bathroom plasterboard: features installation), decorative rods, suspended ceiling of PVC fabric or PVC panels.We will look quite simple, the last option - installation of the ceiling in the bathroom of PVC panels.
installation guide ceiling
If we decide what can be done in the bathroom ceiling, the PVC panels are best suited for this purpose (see. The ceiling panels PVC in the bathroom).It is convenient not only to be mounted on the suspension frame, but take care of them, or rather once every six months to wipe the napkin, that leaving is difficult to call.You can also note that the glossy
preparation for assembly and installation of the suspended frame
- So how do the ceiling in the bathroom is possible only after the installation of ceramic tile, then we will assume that we already have a reliable guide in the form of tile joints and the upper face of the tile.If we fall below this face, then from the last stitch to measure out the desired distance and put a label .Such labels do around the perimeter and connect their line, which will serve as a guide for the lower plane of the suspended carcass.
- Now, note an important point!If metal frame of profiles CD, then we'll have to fasten the perimeter guide UD, if the wood - do not be .But if you screwed the UD for ceramic tiles, do it through 50-70cm as a ceiling rather easy and the mount is not necessary.
- mainly on the ceiling need to strengthen the U-shaped hangers for timber or metal profiles, and this again will have to engage in drafting - every 50cm on the main line across the ceiling perform the intended direction of the panels.It is these lines serve as a guide for installing hangers, and they should be bolted through 50-70cm apart
recommendation.If the main ceiling is made of concrete slabs, the slabs have voids, which will fail plastic anchors, so it's best to use samples with a hat on the front of the cartridge and drum.When using percussion dowels screws from the equipment better replaced by thicker, so with a diameter of 6mm dowels, screws should have a diameter of 4-5mm.
- When suspensions set - pass to mount wooden slats or metal profiles .
- metal frame fixed with special screws fine and wood - wood screws, length 25 mm.Since hanging on a wooden frame around the perimeter of the profile is not set, the extreme rail should be installed close to the wall, with an estimated line.
metal frame suspended
- To frame is received from the flat surface, beneath it can be stretched nylon thread for leveling, as seen in the photos, and if the area of a small bathroom, use a rule or a long spirit level.Protruding ears suspensions bend around, and if they get too long, you can cut them and use them for further repair apartments (these pieces are always handy).
- device in the bathroom ceiling also includes hidden in the plenum wiring (see. Installation of LED illumination on the ceiling, the optimal solution).Wiring is done taking into account all the ceiling lights, that is, each of them supplied the wire or loop is done.All wire is driven into a special corrugated flexible cable channel and a loop can be done with it, and then cut after mounting lining.
Council. depth suspension frame should be adjusted by aligning coverage , ie, if you mount the recessed point, that most of them hide in the ceiling void.By length of the lamp to add 10-15mm quenching heat wave, and you get away from the main ceiling.
installation PVC panels
- After installing a suspended wooden or metal frame (see. The framework for the ceiling of plasterboard: design features) start installation of the ceiling in the bathroom.If you do not stick in the future foam ceiling moldings, set around the perimeter of the L-shaped profile or plastic moldings for PVC ceiling panels.
- In the first panel before installing the bevel cut so that it fits into the profile, and there is a gap, which in the future may accumulate dirt .The metal frame screwed battens with screws to press the puck and the wooden can and bolted, and nailed metal straps length 10mm using a stapler.
- During panel installation (see. The ceiling panels PVC in the bathroom - especially installation) do not forget to output wires for lighting fixtures, as do the ceiling in the bathroom, you need a comprehensive, taking into account the entire device.If lighting will be built-in type, then immediately cut to the holes, it can be done with a knife or a building, or cutter for plasterboard.
- Now install the last panel.If the installation is carried out without L-shaped profile or plastic ceiling moldings, that make it easier, but if not, then follow the instructions.
- Measure the distance from the edge of the penultimate panel to the inner part of the profile and deduct 5mm - this will be the width of the last panel .It is possible that the corners of the bathroom not completely straight, so that the distance will vary and should measure the two ends of the ceiling.Cut the battens best building knife, but not immediately, but by making an incision along the line at the top, and then breaking it, trim the bottom.
- You put first bevel panel, and then start to fill it in the L-shaped profile.If Elka soft, you can do it hands, and if rigid, the refill battens using narrow spatula or carpentry chisels. Be careful not to cut with a spatula profile, especially if the structure has a low viscosity (low viscosity profile may crumble under the strain).
- If you are installing PVC panels without profiles, the edges of the first and last panels need to grab screws (you can not press the puck), but with a view of to screw then it was possible to block the foam molding.
Conclusion Of course, any type of ceiling will look prettier than usual, as the whitewash the ceiling in the bathroom, you can simply shpaklёvannoy concrete slab.PVC glossy panel can not only choose the appropriate tone ceramic tile, but also to establish spotlights, which substantially change the interior of the premises.
