most often suspended ceiling in our house is not set ourselves a company specializing in the performance of such work.The cost of such works is quite high, because most experts suggest using a calculator stretch ceiling for the preliminary assessment of the cost of finishing.
Application programs for calculating the cost of the stretch ceiling will allow you to predict your expenses, and choose the suspended ceiling, which will satisfy all your requirements - and aesthetic, and financial .
stretch ceiling: design features
What are the ceilings
order so that we can use the calculator stretch ceiling with maximum efficiency (ie, the total amount was as close to reality), we need to understand - what issuspended ceiling.
Stretch ceiling - a design that consists of a fabric or film, stretched between the frame members .As a rule, in modern stretch ceilings frame is mounted on the walls around the perimeter of the room (the easiest way) or not elements of plasterboard false ce
as the basis of a stretch ceiling can be used :
- Vinyl (PVC) film.The ceilings are made of PVC to the size of the factory premises by welding strips of polymeric material width from 1 to 5 meters.Modern technologies allow to make the ceiling a different texture of PVC - leather, satin, gloss, etc.The choice of texture and color of the ceiling determined by your requests in the field of design.
- Textile fabric (knitted netting) of polyester filaments impregnated polyurethane primer.Unlike vinyl ceiling textile ceilings are made seamless and do not require heating installation.
Attention!Unlike PVC ceilings, textile ceilings are not afraid of the cold, because they can be installed in rooms that are not heated in the winter, for example - in cottages.
suspended ceilings Both have their advantages and disadvantages, so it must choose between them, building on your particular situation.
types of suspended ceilings
Depending on the design of the ceilings are divided into several types.And if you decide to calculate how much it will cost you one or the other suspended ceiling - a calculator, as a rule, show that the folded structure, the ceiling is more expensive (see. All types of suspended ceilings: classification describing the installation).
What then can be ceilings ?
- ceiling classic design - the most simple to manufacture and therefore the cheapest.The canvas ceiling is on one level and is attached to the mounting plate on the perimeter walls.
Attention!The classic ceiling easiest Downlights and ventilation elements.
- Multilevel suspended ceiling - a complex structure, which is a combination of one-tier ceilings of different colors and textures, arranged at different heights.In view of the greater complexity of installation multilevel ceilings are more expensive one-tier.
- ceiling-dune - one of the most spectacular structures, which suggests a smooth transition of columns at the ceiling with original lighting solutions.
- ceiling arch type - suspended ceiling, which completely changes the geometry of the room.Installed around the perimeter of the room ceiling has an arch-shape dome."Dune" and "arch" the most difficult to install, and because their cost is much higher than that of standard versions of stretch ceiling.
course, our story about the types of suspended ceilings would be incomplete if we did not mention the most spectacular of their kind - "starry sky".The effect of a starry sky on the ceiling from the inside is achieved by installing a ceiling of fiber optic strands that are connected to the light source.Should such a ceiling quite expensive, but the effect produces simply stunning.
cost of the stretch ceiling
So the type we decided - it's time to move to the calculation of the cost.But for the price of a stretch ceiling has not become an unpleasant surprise for us, we recommend to analyze all factors that will contribute to the rise in the cost ceiling as compared to the classical single-tiered structure (see. Stretch ceilings - the business plan for the production of PVC film).
- Manufacturer - here everything is quite transparent.There are quite affordable at the price of domestic ceilings, there is a more expensive French, Austrian and German models.As a rule, the quality is directly proportional to the price - except for a number of our manufacturers.Indeed, among the Russian manufacturers of suspended ceilings can be found a number of models that are different optimal price-performance ratio.
- Drawing on the ceiling.To make the design personality of PVC ceiling by UV printing is applied to a variety of patterns - from the traditional clouds and ending imitations frescoes.Naturally, the ceiling with photo printing will be much more expensive than a traditional monophonic ceiling.
- irregular shape.The more complicated the configuration of the ceiling, the more expensive it will install.And if a few more angles is not too much impact on the final value, the curved contours of seriously expensive design.
Use the calculator
How to use the calculator on the miscalculation cost of a stretch ceiling?It's simple :
- Using information provided in this article, select the material type and characteristics of our future ceiling.
- find a company that can offer us such a ceiling.
- On the website we find a calculator for the calculation of the value of the ceiling and enter the following information into it :
- selected type of fabric.
- perimeter of the room.
- number of angles.
- length of the curved sections.
- need to install the chandelier or recessed luminaires.
- number of levels.
- necessity of mounting fillets (decorative moldings), etc.
As a rule, a calculator for suspended ceilings allows you to pre-calculate the costs for the installation of a stretch ceiling is such that you like (see. How are mounted ceilings: all methods of attachment from professionals).So use these programs - and to choose a manufacturer who will provide you with the suspended ceiling is not only "like", but also "afford"!
