most difficult among the suspended structures are ceilings on two levels.
Design options can have a larger number of levels, and even planes.With such structures can not only hide the utilities, but also beat the irregular geometry of the room and hide the differences in height of the ceiling.
Due to the huge palette of colors and textures of stretch fabrics, such ceilings can be considered universal.The stretch ceiling fits equally well in both the living room and in the bathroom.
It is only important to properly combine it with the overall interior room, and its height.
Installing ceiling in two levels
Many people mistakenly believe that they can be mounted tension ceilings duplex hands.This work is laborious and quite complicated, and requires not only certain skills, but also special equipment, so that no instruction will not help here.
Installing a ceiling must be carried out in compliance with safety rules, and at least two experts.
If you go to a specialized firm on the mounting tension ceiling, to your house come zamerschik technology that will make the necessary measurements:
- They include: the perimeter of the ceiling, its diagonal,the number and size of lighting fixtures and other ceiling equipment, such as an infrared heater, the projector, the cornice.
- these sizes will be enough for a one-tier structure.If the level is more, you will need at least another ten linear dimensions: the radius of curves and distance from various points on these lines to the corner.
- On how accurately the measurements will be made, will depend on the accuracy of cutting fabric .For his work, the firm is responsible, and this is another argument in favor of not trying to make this design your own.
- When a contract for works, you will be offered to design a stretch ceiling, and select the desired web.After complying with all formalities and payment of the order, it is sent to production.
tailor ceiling, taking into account the shrinkage factor.That is, its size will be a little less real.
is done to ensure that the web does not sag after pulling its own weight.If we consider that the PVC film may have a different thickness, shrinkage each of its species will be different.So
- Pattern fabric is formed by a computer program on the basis of measurements entered into it, and issued Pattern cutting. finished fabric must exactly match the size of the pattern.
- For areas larger sizes, require soldering joints, as rolls of film have a certain standard width.
- Connect the pattern pieces of high-frequency welding - seam gives a very strong and almost invisible, especially on matte canvas.Soldering time takes only a few seconds.If
- Mounting tension ceilings (suspended ceilings sm.Montazh their own hands - it is you) will be made harpoon way, then welded the anchorages in the shop, too.
- But this method only mount design water levels.For two or more levels or the use shtapikovy cam techniques.
Layout and installation frame
correct markings base surface is also very important.When mounted ceiling stretch a two-tier, the baseline design is a lower level.
it is attached to the frame, as well as conventional painting - and there are no problems.
- But on the first level is the boundary of the second level, and it is essential that it coincides exactly with the markings on the ceiling.In place of the boundary between the levels will be mounted design of the wooden elements.
- Borders levels are applied to the surface of the base according to the scheme in pencil .Then this line is screwed screws, on which the thread is tensioned.
- Next to the ceiling fixed plywood squares of 15 * 15cm, first horizontally and then perpendicularly, fastened together by a metal corners.In the photo below you can see it clearly.
- Thus it is necessary to pay attention to the vertical squares were strictly perpendicular not only the ceiling but also yarn, indicating the boundary between two levels.
- to the ends of the boards will be fixed by the board, which will outline the second level.That is why two-level installation of suspended ceilings is more complicated, and the price is slightly higher.
- If the frame of the second level is made correctly, start the installation of the first level.Along the perimeter of the room, at a distance of 12-15 cm from the floor slab is applied to the contour on which will be fixed profiles.
- For this you need a hammer and the dowels with screws. distance between the attachment points must be within 24-28sm.
profiles are mounted on the finished wooden frame in two rows.Who cares how it is done exactly, better watch the video.
- profile for the two-level stretch ceilings can be used as the aluminum and plastic.Frequently used both species.
It so happens that some portion of the profile can be visible. profile of plastic has a white matte color, which is ideal to the web the same shade .If tension film of a different color, decorated with a visible profile.In addition, it is flexible, allowing you to easily perform curvilinear forms.
When the frame is ready, in one corner of the delay profiles of PVC films and gently spread over the perimeter.The rest of the special corners hung clothespins on a cord.So
- outer edges of the web are free - all focus on the internal border.The first fabric is attached there.
This part of the work must be done carefully, so you do not formed folds.
- Only then can fill the canvas along the perimeter of the room.This will require gas gun: with its help the film is heated, stretched - and its edges are inserted into profiles.Warming should be uniform, so that the coating is perfectly smooth.
bunk ceilings have long been a difficult decision design issues.Many are attracted by the possibility of creating a custom interior.
Plus, excellent performance and aesthetic characteristics of PVC canvases.Their manufacturers are new items each year, can be interested in the broad masses of the population.
Here and 3D ceilings, and photo printing, and the "starry sky", even biblical .Designers can only properly fit a ceiling in the interior of the premises, and for him to come up with original lighting.
