Duplex suspended ceiling with lights, is a wonderful decorative design, which carries not only a decorative function, but hides utilities, irregularities and defects in the base ceiling plane.For structural elements hidden and integrated lighting with lamps.
split-level ceilings can be set using several types of material:
- tensioning system;
- insert glass skeletons.
Recently, a very commonly used two-level ceilings with lighting with a combination of several kinds of materials.Consider what tools and materials needed for proper installation of the structure.
two-level ceiling installation steps
Before starting the installation work is necessary to make the following operations:
- develop the project design of future construction, taking into account the lighting;
- layout work on the ceiling plane walls;
- Install mounting rails metal profiles on the perimeter of the premises;
- Assemble the first level, with the help of the C-shaped profiles;
- stretch ceiling mount to the frame of the first level;
- Mount Trey ceilings with lighting on the frame.
necessary preparatory work
Installation work should be done after careful surface preparation. To install proceed only when all the works are completed, operations requiring wet plaster, screed, plaster.
During installation work must be kept optimum temperature, and humidity of 75% Then, prepare an accurate drawing of the future construction.With the help of the drawing makes the calculation of stretch ceiling.
The figure should take into account the size of the premises, all features that relate to projections, columns and ceiling nish.Kogda calculated level 2 levels, takes into account the width of the channels for ventilation.
Knowing that mounted two-level ceilings with lighting, you want to make a footnote in the built-in lights, consider their gabarity.Na drawing should be possible to accurately mark the places of fasteners and frame joints, space, lighting and ventilation channels.
first gasket should ensure ventilation and electrical wiring.Posting is carried across the line of lighting devices.
Preferably, the base ceiling cleaned of all contaminants, other waste material, wash whitewash (see: How do wash whitewash from the ceiling with the least effort).
split-level ceilings with lighting provide for the use of the following tools:
- needle roller in the case of bending strips of drywall, if you plan to create different profile pieces;
- screwdrivers, drill;
- pliers to seal profiles;
- fine rasp;
To make the main frame rails and needed rack profiles suspensions. If the design of more than 3 meters, in order to avoid possible sagging needed crabs.
used for fixing screws and dowels.
important to remember that you need to purchase a variety of plugs designed for the concrete base and wooden.
two-tiered ceiling with lighting: installation technology
Installation begins with the design layout, using a laser or conventional level determines the zero point.Further, the drawing once beat off two levels.
The first level is the foundation, which is nailed as close to the base ceiling, and the second level is a decorative stage.It is recommended to do no more than 100 millimeters thick.
Tip: Before you begin any installation work, it is necessary to see an instructional video with steps.
- Along the perimeter of the room the guides (using a U-shaped metal profile).Next, the assembly of the C-profile, are inserted into the guide elements and are fixed with screws.
Rack profile installed at 0.5 meters (step depends on the size and thickness of the plane of the ceiling drywall, the larger the area, the lower the pitch).
- then fasten sheets of drywall using self-tapping screws and screwdrivers, pushing it into their design without considerable effort not to damage the sheet.After assembly of the main body of the first level to the second turn.
- To start, you need to mark out the boundaries of the main frame has developed the figure for the stage.Then, fasten the rails to the base ceiling of the second level.
- For structures with different decorative forms profile is cut with scissors for metal grinder or .Step fracture is about 10 centimeters, depending on the level of the fracture.
two-level backlight around the perimeter of the ceiling is made with a special groove, which will be further laid wire for lighting fixtures.
- then cut and assembled pieces of drywall to the surface of the future design of the second level and the end part of the strip.To bend the elements, they must be carefully cut and moisten the edges of the material.
bending elements need a needle roller which will help to make perforation on both sides.For a good example, look like the curves, you can see the photo.
Tip: generating installation with their own hands, not worth much to moisten the GCR, and during mounting work much pressure on him.Otherwise, the structure may be damaged.
Installation Manual two-level stretch ceiling
Stretch ceilings with lighting perfectly combined with plasterboard.Mounted plasterboard frame once in two levels.
first level is constructed in such a way as to leave the area for mounting the tensioning system.On the second level is sutured drywall.
Experts recommend immediately drywall putty and primed.On our website you can see how putty plasterboard.
What do I need to provide for the two-level stretch ceilings:
- stretch ceiling must be secured with plastic or aluminum profiles.If you plan to use arched, wavy flowing shapes, it is best to use a plastic profile, it is easier to bend.
only inconvenience during installation, should pay attention to the strength of the fastener.From how much quality will be performed installation, it depends on the durability and structural strength.
- Then, very carefully unpacked suspended ceiling, mount it using special clips at the corners slowly heated gas hairdryer.Stretch it should be neat, securing the latch on the brackets.
- By abutting edges closed with a decorative ribbon.
This design will give the room a special charm.The price depends on the complexity of the design and installation of the selected material.It may be noted
basic schemes, suspended ceilings with lighting, which today repairs are the most popular.
Combined ceilings with perforated and translucent cloth
From the base of the ceiling down gradually mounted:
- light source (LED spotlights or tape);
- opaque fabric, perforated with holes, simple or complex shapes.The main task level, is an organization for selective illumination of the web sites of the next level;
- translucent material that transmits light.It's kind of a screen on which the image is applied attractive;the sky with the stars, leaves and other interesting scenery.
In this case, each layer (cloth) is stretched individually, but at different levels.This method is used for sufficient strength of the walls.
different levels, but the installation is carried out in a single layer
This option provides for the division of the ceiling of the plane into different zones, height.After mounting the frame stretched fabric line inclines.
Lighting installed in different ways (by a translucent ceiling or vertical boundaries of the structure).This method, unlike the first is more convenient for access to lamps (they can be easily replaced).
Stretch ceiling duct is surrounded by drywall
Speaking of the above methods, there without the services of highly qualified professionals can not do and that is understandable.The film should be cut in advance of the desired shape and size, if required welding of several paintings, which need special sophisticated equipment.
But still, there is a way where there is an opportunity to save money and make the two-level ceiling installation using PVC films themselves (at least most of the work).
How will the future construction, in this case:
- on basic ceiling made assembling the first level of the drywall, it will be possible to pull the PVC film;
- Further, the wiring is done lighting.You can use the LED strip, which are mounted hidden;
- Boarding frame sheets of plasterboard, made all the work on GCR (putty, priming, painting);
- on the inner frame stretched film.Then set lights and ceiling ready.
