Ceiling surface at the moment have a very large range of design and structure.The most popular use of steel tensile structures, but the ceiling broke the tension, what to do when it knows not everyone.
What is suspended ceiling
Before you deal with what measures should be taken to break the case of tensile structures, it is necessary initially to determine the types and properties of a stretch ceiling.Stretch ceiling is a canvas which is stretched on the ceiling surface using special hardware.
There are two types of ceiling coverings:
- Film ceilings.
They have virtually the same properties and characteristics, but different in their structure.
Film ceilings and their properties
stretched canvas of this type is made of PVC film.She is very strong and elastic.
That is, able to stretch freely.Using such types of ceilings in any room, as they are environmentally friendly and do not harm human
- Strong as able to withstand fairly heavy loads (1 sq m can affect up to 100 kg).
- Practical, because the surface does not require frequent cleansing because of its resistance to a variety of contaminants.
- Waterproof, since they can withstand moisture and is not deformed.
- Long life - the life of this ceiling covering more than 10 years.
- Wear - do not lose their original appearance over the entire lifetime.
- not fade when exposed to sunlight.
- not deformed by moderate to extreme temperatures.
- Film suspended ceiling is able to protect the room from flooding.Due to its flexibility and strength at its inner surface it is loosely holds water and prevents it from seeping into the room.
the photo is visible example of such functions ceiling surface.
- traction coating of this type has a large assortment of decoration.It is possible to print on the surface different images.
very popular in recent years began to use the ceiling with imitation of the starry sky.There are already used in addition to the main ceiling and even special equipment on the remote control.
- is also possible to create a structure with not one, but with a few levels.Making a stretch ceiling can have a variety of pastel colors and bright colors.
- very surface of the ceiling meets matte or glossy.Then their characteristics differ little.If
matte stretch ceiling can withstand hot water and thus suffer minor deformation, the glossy - lose the appearance of the fact that the surface crack and the film itself will be stretched.
- This stretch ceiling can easily be installed an unlimited amount of lighting.Only the original draft to the ceiling surface is necessary to carry out electrical wiring and install the brackets for installation of lighting.
They act as a special metal hooks, which are mounted in the concrete slab using a punch.
- holes are cut in the web after its installation, focusing on the hooks (they need to probe).Once all actions are carried out very carefully so as not to break the web.
Council.Do not use film ceilings in rooms that are not heated in the cold season.The surface of the ceiling can begin to deform because of their dryness.The elastic film also becomes.
Mounting tension ceiling film
Mounting tension film ceiling perform their own hands will not work as well as repairs in case of rupture.All this is due to the unusual design of the installation technology.
participate in it:
- Special fasteners (plastic or aluminum).
- Cloth PVC film.
- Building or chalk level.
- Plugs and small hammer.
- gas stove (duyka).
- Initially, the room must be warmed using the equipment to a temperature of 60-70 degrees.This is necessary due to the fact that the film must be soft and easy to deformation.
- At this time, surface mounted fixture with dowels and punch.The web is then subjected to high temperature as to enable it to adjust to room temperature conditions.
tightens the ceiling with a special hook-like spatula, wherein the web is inserted into the slots of fixture.The actions themselves are beginning to carry out a corner of the room and gradually moving to the entire perimeter.
All of this is carried out only in a very warm room.
Repair tension film ceiling
What if broken suspended ceiling PVC film?
This may occur in the coating during installation and its operation.The reasons for this may be different.
- repair of such paintings is usual patch on its surface.For this purpose is called a master of tension ceilings and it is desirable that he was of the firm that manufactured the ceiling.
As a rule, this type of organization always provide a guarantee on its products and its obligation to serve for a certain period of time.
- Master uses the same hardware as in the installation of the coating.Initially, the surface is heated until it becomes soft and supple.
then cut a piece of film of the same color (it should be included with the ceiling in case of film rupture).
- also exposed to a high temperature and is pasted on the surface of the ceiling, which was torn.Then using a rubber roller patch is smoothed on the surface.
- Repair work on the film tensioning coating remain invisible, because after their fabric finds integrity.
Council.Do not try to repair the stretch ceiling film yourself as gap coverage may increase.
- If the gap is very large, the wizard freely dismantled tension coating repairs on his company and after such work sets him back.
What if flooded and water is on the inner surface of the ceiling cover?No need to worry about their own and carry out any action to withdraw the liquid.
should refer to the master who on arrival dismantles part of the ceiling, drain the water and under high temperature to carry out its installation again.
Cloth stretch ceiling structures
Fabric ceilings in their properties too, but still have differences on the film.They also
- If the film is not able to withstand hot water or too high a temperature, the fabric is able to not deform under the influence of too high or too low temperature.
- Made a ceiling coating of any kind of tissue, which is processed by special means.They increase its strength and giving it elasticity.
As a rule, the cut of the fabric may be deformed and paint.Thanks to the new technology of processing of the ceiling is painted and the fabric is not deformed even under great stress.
- say that the fabric can not be moisture-proof ceiling, but over time they are free to withstand exposure to moisture.
Council.If the ceiling of the film can be used in any room, the fabric is not recommended for use in the decoration of the rooms, which have high humidity.
price of this type of the ceiling surface is several times higher than for PVC film.The material is environmentally friendly and does not harm human health.
surface can be:
- with photo printing.
- The main advantage of the tissue web is that you can paint up to 10 times.Only if this can not be used vodoeulsionnye paints because they are water-based.
- How will the tissue after such exposure - professionals can meet - in different ways.There are types of fabric ceilings that after exposure to moisture regain their previous form, but there are those who remain stretched and deformed
- When selecting such a ceiling cover is worth considering that it is unable to protect the room from flooding.Keep the water on its inner surface fabric can be very long.
Note.Clears the canvas with a dry cloth and vacuum cleaner should not be used for such operations.Because he can be a great power, which violates the ceiling mount.
tissue repair fabric
What if a broken ceiling cover?Here repairs are performed slightly differently.
Any specific instructions according to which the Master goes to the object, and initially evaluate lacerations.So
- There are defects that can not be resolved on the spot and have to completely dismantle the ceiling cover.
- Typically, such patches on the ceiling should be put.
- Covering just handled a special tool (glue) and a high temperature.
Installation fabric ceiling coverings
installation works tissue surface tension differ in that they do not use high temperature.Everything else is similar.
Initially, the surface fasteners are mounted in their grooves with a spatula blade is inserted, a video is an example of such work.
