Stretch ceilings are increasingly finding their fans.Therefore, this article is about how to make a two-tier suspended ceiling with his hands.
can not say that it is just required endurance and patience.Before buying the material purchase material and see photos and video on the topic.
All work will take place in a certain order and at the right technologies.This will be the key to success.
Advantages and disadvantages
decide to start, whether it is this approach konstruktsiya.Ona not only has positive aspects, but also some disadvantages that may make you change your mind .So
- This design is suitable if you have an uneven ceiling, and you do not want to deal with them a lot.The tensioning system is not a hindrance.
And this design is perfectly hide communication.It is possible to make the plane in multiple levels.
Just before the work should decide on this issue, this will depend on the amount of material;
- It is possible to mount an extra layer of insulation, and of any thickness;
- you get a perfectly flat surface and with no great expense.The price of the material and not so high.It can afford to almost anyone;
- This design is practical and does not require a lot of care;
Note: If you are not a permanent indoor heating, then do not give preference to the film, and the material that best tolerate changes in temperature.The film in this embodiment is better not to use, it is not intended for it.
So it must first be examined instruction material and then decide how to make split-level ceilings
- himself fabric is fragile and it is not difficult to damage by mechanical means.And it is very difficult to make repairs, the seam will still be visible;
- acceptable price, if you do the installation work with their hands, and without resorting to outside help.But if a person has no skills, then it is better not to do this yourself, you can simply spoil material.
But if this work is performed by a specialist, then it will cost expensive.To install the required special equipment;
If you do decide to do the work yourself, then it will continue on how to do split-level ceilings.
All work takes place in several stages that are important.There will be no need, all affect the overall structure.
equipment and instruments
First we need to prepare the necessary tools.
work must be carried out quite smoothly and according to a certain plan.You will have no time to be distracted.So
- need to install the framework and the right set of hammer drills with pobeditovye soldering.They take and expansion;
Note: The ceiling will be a significant load on the skeleton.Therefore, the connection should be made tough enough.
not use dowels included.Buy retail plastic pacifiers and then screws them.
diameter of which must be a life for a couple of mm larger holes in the plastic.It is this compound gives the desired rigidity and be safe.
- For high-quality film tension you need to heat a gas gun with the gas cylinder.You can certainly do a hairdryer and construction of large power.
But in this embodiment, a heating area is much lower and evenness suffer;
- hydraulic and building level.It will be necessary to make a quality framework that will be the basis.It is he who will determine the configuration and geometry of the plane;
- need a screwdriver and screws;
- blades and a spatula;
- It should be comfortable to stand at a gas station paintings, therefore, prepare a comfortable table.
Preparing the base frame and installing
first step is to create a base for mounting to fix the frame and only after that we will think about how to make a two-tier suspended ceiling.So
- first step is to clean the base of the ceiling of the old coating.To do this, use a brush on the metal;
- then makes inspection plane.If there is a darkening or manifestation of the fungus, then do the processing antiseptics, which will eliminate the disease.
It's worth doing even for the sake of prevention.If the disease will manifest itself after installation of paintings, then it will be very difficult to combat;
- You should also check how old plaster rests.If there is delamination, they should be removed with a chisel and jelly;
- Now we have to handle the plane primer.It is better to use liquid deep penetration.Take cover twice;
- Marker Draw lines finding the ceiling.One can be indicated by the solid line, the second dotted line;
- then give the ceiling to dry completely and find the lowest level and set the mark;
- To this we add the value of the size of the profile.
If you are using a heater in the design, then you should take into account the size.Becoming the second mark;
- Now we need to move this to the size of the other walls.For this handy hydraulic level that this can be done with sufficient accuracy.Transmission;
- now connects all the dots.For this we use nylon thread and simply repel level.
Now we have a line of the ceiling, which is applied around the perimeter;
- Thereafter, on the first level it is necessary to attach a profile.To do this, we cut to the desired size and used for this purpose scissors or metal grinder with cutting wheel.
then makes fixing to the plane on the dowels.When applying this connection point with a distance of not less than 50 cm;
- Now fasten the profile to the second level.At the same time we should not forget that the second stage is shifted to the first level of the thickness of the drywall, which is mounted on a vertical plane.
Warning: Do not mount the profile up against the end wall.When the expansion may have trouble.And that you will protect yourself from problems.
- Now fasten the uprights.
first cut them off, as described earlier and do a compound of the deposited lines.This should be done in steps of 20 cm Th. Fixing is done using metal screws.
layout for fixtures
After installing the frame must not forget to do the wiring for lighting (sm.Svetodiodnye lamp for suspended ceilings - make a choice).
this work is done as follows:
- Choose a location for the junction box.Note that there should be free access.If you encounter problems
need to make repairs.Just need to pick up and place for a step-down transformer, it is in the case if you use the energy-saving lamps.
makes installation boxes;
- now mark up on the ceiling of the place of installation of lighting fixtures.Stamp;
- Making channels for wires and fasten them;
Note: when connecting the cable can not be twisted to do.Use terminals that will provide reliable and quality connection.
take it seriously.When a fault is difficult to get to the junction.Do it qualitatively.
- choosing cable, define it properly section.Do not take the butt.
The core has to be the power supply, which should be around 20 percent.Prefer copper;
- In the field of lighting do the release of the cable so that was enough for the connection;
- Connecting the lighting on the light distribution.Make sure it is.
While you can fix it.After attaching the plugs that already do not work;
- If you are satisfied, then disable the light at the branch and remove lamps.
Now it's time to tell you how to make two-tier suspended ceiling.We had a two-stage operation.
This consolidation of drywall, which is set vertically.And then do the installation of the film itself.So
- To start your measurements and cut the drywall.This is simply done with a knife, but sharp.
Fixing is done on the profile does not accept connections on weight.When the compound is used for metal screw.
elements should not be set in a tight, do a gap about five mm.After fixing the gap filler is processed;
- After complete fixing drywall putty do its processing.First, simply align the start.After it dries
impose more than a thin layer of the finish.Then spend the processing of sandpaper or trowel grid.
If there is a sink, then have doshpaklevat.Then gruntuem and paint.Do
finally finish, the canvas is attached only to the full implementation of the field work on plasterboard;
Note: If you do install lighting on the drywall, then immediately make the holes for fixtures.
To do this, use the drill with a crown, which is taken to the size of the lamp.And only after that makes attaching sheets and further processing.
- Now cut the baguette in the right size and fasten it in the box.The mounting points do with a minimum size.
film will pull on a plane so this element must keep quality;
- Next, we need to warm the room up to 50 degrees.Before installation, do not forget to bring items that are afraid of heat.
Fasteners film coating made from the corner of the room.Warms cover 70 t degrees.Therefore
gun and better on the dryer, it is possible to do this work on a big plane and evenly.Only a strong close to the gun, the film can not keep;
- Derem trowel or shovel and dressed in a groove film baguette.Do it until you hear a click, this will be a signal of fixing;
- Now go to the corner, which is located on a diagonal and do the same thing should be done after other corners in the same order.Now, dressed with the rest of the coating.
this is done with the middle wall and towards the corner.We carry out refueling of the entire plane.
After complete cooling the room and the surface of the film completely tension occurs;
- on the location of the lighting is done as follows.We make an incision in the desired diameter.Always sticking plastic ring along the contour cut.
It should buy according to the size you want, it will not tear film;
Now you know how to do split-level ceilings (ceilings sm.Vredny Do?).Of course, it's pretty hard work, but not so difficult.
most important thing in this matter, to take the time and all the correct measure.
