Along with lots of finishing material for the ceiling surface is very popular stretch ceiling, which is a great harpoon fitting.
stretch ceiling and quality
In order to determine what constitutes a harpoon system suspended ceilings need to assess themselves and hanging ceilings characterize its views.
Stretch ceilings can be:
What are the PVC stretch system?
PVC ceilings have more advantages than the tissue (see: How do ceilings better fabric or PVC - the choice is yours).They have a matte or glossy finish.
It is often possible to meet a variety of patterns.It became very popular ceiling covering with simulated day and night sky.
You can also do it with photo printing and color image.
- major advantage of PVC ceiling is its practicality.The surface does not absorb moisture, and various odors.Also, it is well cleaned with a damp cloth.
Council.If the surface tension of PVC ceiling clean damp cloth does not work, you can use
- only the latter option has some limitations.Alcohol solution can not be used on glossy surfaces, as it may start the deformation of the protective film.
- Due to its flexibility of PVC stretch ceiling will safely support heavy loads.For example, if the top neighbors flooded, the water will be collected on the inner surface of the film, thereby protecting the room from water.
- Once such case occurred need to call a specialist to help dismantle the ceiling of the cover and drain the water.Reverse the installation will also make it their own.
Note.Because there is mounting as the harpoon system of suspended ceilings and the installation and dismantling is done very quickly and easily.
Film Ceiling Floor:
- durability and reliability.
- has a large range of colors and decorations.
- considered universal, since it can be used even in areas with high humidity.
- strong and elastic.
- helps to create a unique design of any room.
- is also worth noting that on such a surface it is possible to install an unlimited number of decorative lighting devices and thereby delimit the room into several functional areas.
- It may seem that the film ceiling can be used in rooms flat shape.This is not true.Ceiling coverings of this type can take many forms.
See photos with examples of various forms of processing facilities.
- Why PVC stretch ceiling a robust and reliable?All due to the fact that it is made from polyvinyl chloride film, which has excellent properties.
With it you can make out the ceiling various shades.For this purpose there is a special equipment which performs a spike paintings.
thus obtained suture ceiling paintings.
Using this ceiling has a number of limitations.It can not be used in areas where permanent heating, since the film may start to shrivel under the influence of low temperature and thus to the ceiling surface cracks will begin to appear protective coating.
stretch ceiling fabric
from fabric ceilings harpoon system, which is also present, its style.Installation they have some differences from the PVC film.
- This type of ceiling cover is made of a wide web that makes it possible to use it in rooms of different sizes.
In most cases it is seamless.If you want to arrange the ceiling of the room in several colors, it is possible as well as to film ceilings perform spike.
- There is a large selection of fabric ceilings.They have a variety of imitation textiles: linen, viscose and so on.They are also durable and reliable.This is the account of the moisture resistance can be questioned.
- fabric itself, though, and a good pass processing with special substances that give it strength and elasticity are not able to withstand exposure to moisture for a long time.
Council.Fabric ceiling coverings is not recommended for registration of premises with high humidity.
- Fabric ceilings freely carry sharp temperature changes and do not respond to a fairly heavy loads.Price is slightly higher than a film.
All this is due to the fact that the ceiling is completely environmentally friendly.Quite often it is used for children's rooms and bedrooms.
- Currently, the ceiling surface of the fabric may only have a matte surface.
- main advantage of tissue covering the ceiling is that it is free can be painted.Only when it does not use water-based paints, which is the main water.
from fabric ceilings Harpoon no different from the system of fixing the ceiling of the film, but there is a difference in the installation.
Mounting tension ceilings
Since the harpoon system ceilings is in the fabric and the film web, the main difference will be that the PVC ceiling mounted under high temperatures.
What you need for installation of a stretch ceiling made of PVC film:
- Cretaceous or laser level.
- Building level.
- pencil and ruler to mark the height of the tension applying coatings.
- Special equipment (duyka which produces hot air to warm up the room).
- special spatula with a bent end.
- Screws with long legs for wooden surfaces and expansion - for brick or other stone.
- Hammer, screwdriver or a normal drill.
- Hammer dowels to mount.
- Hacksaw for cutting profile.
Council.For greater strength harpoon mounting aluminum profile systems need to perform with dowels every 20-30 cm.
- room warms up to 70-80 degrees.It must also is PVC fabric, so that it can adapt and get used.
At this time, the installation is performed on the surface of the profile of the harpoon.
- Perform such work with their own hands will not work, because the need to have experience and skills in this area.Pre-room level is set using the height of the tension ceiling.
to better determine the optimal height is better to use a laser or chalk thread level.With it also calculates the center point of installation of the lighting device.
- also worth initially to determine the amount of lighting, because under it will need to do electrical wiring and integrated in the roof slab special hooks, the size of which depends on the mass of the device and the height of the ceiling.
- installation process begins with the corners of the room, that when using a fabric that at the film ceiling coverings.
gradually from the corners of the harpoon is inserted into the whole body.Its edges have the same lock, which keeps the ceiling system.
for mounting the tissue covering the ceiling need:
- Building, laser or chalk level.
- Screws or dowel.
- drill, hammer or screwdriver.
- Shears for metal.
- Pencil and ruler.
- spatula with a bent end of the rubber.
Tissue tension ceiling cover mounted in a similar way, but without the use of high temperatures.For this room should be properly measured, because the fabric will not stretch quite simple.
The video shows an example of mounting tension ceiling.
Methods mounting for suspended ceilings
At the moment there are two types of mounting:
- harpoon for stretch ceiling (harpoon system).
- Shtapikovaya system.
What is the harpoon system?
It's pretty simple.This aluminum profile, which has a special lock on the principle of a harpoon.That is, the hook.
- Canvas also has a profile, only milder.We can say that he rubberized.
- A special spatula with a bent end of the fabric is inserted into a harpoon and securely it is attached to an aluminum flap.
than aluminum and plastic harpoon system.Only they are less practical and reliable.They use them when the belt is stretched too.
Shtapikovaya system installation of suspended ceilings
What is this method of securing the ceiling cover?It consists in the fact that the wall bead (professional baguette).
It has a small height - about 2 cm. This makes it possible not conceal the space for mounting tension ceiling.
Only then it is worth considering, it's all possible in the case if the walls in the room are the same height.
- Baguette has a protruding edge that is mounted with dowels to the surface.You can also use self-tapping screws in the case of a wooden structure.
- The use of such a system is possible only if precise measurements premises, since the film web has already taken with a small margin for unforeseen situations during installation.
- With cloth such actions will not be implemented.Though she and flexible, but requires precise size.
for the installation of such a system have special instructions, and according to which all actions are performed.
If the installation of fasteners for tension fabric or film ceiling can be done by yourself as the markup of the premises, then mount canvases best left to professionals, because of the wrong actions of the structure and appearance of the ceiling may vary.
