What is best for the ceiling: plates, adhesive mounts way or panels for modular systems?
answer to this question can not be clearly much depends on the financial capacity of the owner of the house.It has the value of the configuration and the height of the ceiling, the appointment of the room, its interior concept in general.
In this article we will discuss about the different options, and which one to choose, will solve themselves.To help those who intend to engage in arrangement of the ceiling space with their own hands, we will offer a video on "plates to the ceiling."
adhesive mounting ceiling tiles
If the overlap in your house or apartment flat, and has no differences in height, the easiest way to produce it with the help of finishing ceiling tiles, mounted on the glue.
first thing that comes to mind for each of us, it's easy relief tiles made of polystyrene or PVC.But not all regard it as a good option for your home - for the simple reason that this tile is
- Pretty simple structure and simple manufacturing techniques allow many years of ceiling tile hold the palm at an affordable cost.In addition, manufacturers are trying to prove to the consumer that the boards of inexpensive polymers, surface aesthetics can compete with many natural materials, moving away from the strict geometric shapes, offering fashionable nowadays 3D reliefs.
- So, in addition to traditional sutures plates, appeared seamless tiles.Its main difference - a curved shape edges, which is engaged in establishing the pattern on the ceiling, or a pattern of joints.The tiles are placed, like a puzzle, forming a solid pattern.Stitches, of course, exist, but they are virtually invisible.
- surface of a tile usually looks like a stucco pattern, and the color range of sometimes pleasantly surprised.Accordingly, the price of seamless tiles higher than the seam panels with a surface for painting.So, you can choose the perfect option, and not just for the kitchen and bathrooms.
course, there are other types of plates that can be mounted on the ceiling adhesive method: plaster, bamboo, wood.Different materials and installation method is similar in all cases.Next we will describe in general terms what the technology of pasting the ceiling surface.
On that special attention
Pasting the ceiling, together with the painting, is good because it does not reduce the volume of the room, as is the case when installing suspended ceilings.Those people who have a room height is no problem, do not attach any importance to this.But the owners of the so-called "hruschёvok" in which a tall man, no problem gets a hand to the ceiling, are well aware of what is at stake.So
- you decide to make finishing the ceiling using tiles.Before you buy it, remove old paint, and appreciate the quality of the grounds on which it is mounted.Many people think that once the surface is closed tiles, it is not required to make preparations.
- To some extent, it is this: hide minor cracks plates, bowls, roughness. But if there is a difference between adjacent beams;old screed: although strong, but uneven;or it is somewhere vyscherblena, you will need to make alignment.Otherwise it is the most beautiful tiles will not look good.
Keep in mind that even minor irregularities can spoil the impression of the work.Therefore, pasting must be done either directly on the concrete base, with the obligatory sealing of joints between the slabs;either on the old plaster with a fresh putty.
Once leveling screed has dried, the surface under the pasting must-ogruntovat, and only then proceed to markup.
markup ceiling surface
This step is important, and how well it is made, ultimately depends on the result of the work.On the lines of the markers are located ceiling tiles - how to glue them, you will understand the scheme carefully examining table.
|arrangements of ceiling tiles||Performing the markup|
| This method is most simple and convenient for plates having a regular geometric shape.Any markings of the installation of tiles is based on the definition of the center of the ceiling.Most apartments at this point is a chandelier, but rely on it too not worth it. |
The figure photo, we see that it is located along the perpendicular axes.Diagonal here just give a reference point: for them align corners tiles.
| In this scheme, everything is exactly the opposite: the verge boards placed along the diagonals and corners - perpendicular.In such an arrangement of squares (whole tiles), the perimeter of the ceiling is framed by triangles (the halves of the tiles). |
|This option is more complicated.If the two previous schemes in the central vanishing point four tiles, here it is aligned with the center of one tile.All other squares conditional axes intersect in half.|
|only option where the installation is carried out not by the center and away from the window.It is best suited for such premises, where the entrance is located opposite the window.In this case, along the walls on which the window opening, cut tiles will not.|
- Sometimes the tiles are mounted in a spiral starting from the center as well.If she has a curved shape, then invent a "bicycle" does not have - it has the manufacturer's instructions, which gives a detailed explanation.
These schemes are used for all types of ceiling panels, mounted on adhesive.The ceiling suspension systems are most applicable first and last options.
Apply marking line using yarn dyeing.First otcherchivayutsya diagonal: in one corner of the screw is screwed, it is attached to the cord and pulled in the opposite corner so as to obtain an imprint.
for applying perpendicular axes on each side of the ceiling surface of the need to find middle ground.Further actions are similar: screw - Cord - mark.
make installation of the finished layout is very easy.The adhesive is applied on the diagonal and perimeter of a thin strip on the back of the tile.
Then it is applied to the base, slightly pressed and held for 10-15 seconds.Extruded excess glue cleaned cloth.So
- along the entire wall tiles, as a rule, do not fit.Plates of PVC and polystyrene are cut very easily, it requires a metal ruler, pencil, stationery knife yes.The main thing is the correct measure of the distance of the cut, and try to make it as straight as possible.
- If transoms around the perimeter will be the same size, make a template of which will measure the desired lengths.With a diagonal installation method, a half tile is a triangle.
To avoid overspending of the material, do not rush to throw away the rest of the - it may well fit to the opposite side!
- gypsum ceiling tiles laid on any of the above methods.If it caisson, it is often used to frame the ceiling, that is mounted only on the perimeter.This is not only very beautiful, but also convenient.After the gypsum board does not razrezhesh as foam.
- When required additional elements, they must be indicated in the order.In the manufacture of boards at home, casting transoms should be a separate form.
If all other modular materials to glue "Liquid nails" or "torque-installation", the gypsum board - a special gipsopolimere glue.And of course the junction of the ceiling and walls decorated very differently.
- When the label of polystyrene tiles, pick up the plinth of the same material.The joints between the mask putty slightly hides, and then paint the entire ceiling latex paint.When used in the decoration of the ceiling gypsum board, at the junction of wall and ceiling is carried out according to the rules entablature.
This arrangement of three architectural elements: a frieze, cornice and architrave, also made of plaster.Although today gypsum successfully replaced polyurethane.
from it can be made not only for decoration elements with wall-ceiling joints, but also the tile.And it is mounted on the same circuit, but on the polyurethane adhesive.
Panels for ceiling systems
If problems with high ceilings in the house there, you can give preference to those embodiments of plates which are mounted on the frame.In general, in modular suspended systems, you can see all the options that we have already discussed - except polystyrene.So
- To this list can be added glass, aluminum, gipsovolokno, fiberglass, plastic, wood and its derivatives.All of these materials are used as raw materials in the manufacture of plates for ceiling systems.
In this case, they are called cassettes.In fact - it is water-resistant ceiling tiles, which are suitable for rooms of any purpose, since combines beautiful aesthetics with exceptional practicality.
- Unlike options for adhesive mounting modules for suspended ceilings are standard dimensions taken around the world: 600 * 600 mm.Other dimensions may be only in systems made individually.This size corresponds to step between the longitudinal and transverse belts carcass, which, in fact, fix the plate.
- Speaking of practicality coffered ceiling, their main advantage is that each individual module can be easily removed and as easily set in place.After all, if space in the ceiling concealed any communication access should be free.
This is useful for homes and even more valuable for offices, where in addition to the wiring under the ceiling hide cables for telephone and internet, wire burglar and fire alarm systems - plus lighting and ventilation equipment.So, advantages of modular ceiling there.
Useful information about the modular ceilings
Some types of ceiling tiles can be installed on a metal frame, and on the wood.Only in the latter case, the ceiling will not be suspended, and boarded.
This design is especially acute when the trim is made of bamboo or wood panels:
- In such cases, they are fixed to the crate with nails or screws, especially if no communications, except for built fixtures in the ceiling space is not going to be installed.But this does not mean that the wooden plate can not be mounted on the suspension system.
- Plates made of natural wood are the elite materials, and are used mainly for respectable interior, with an appropriate design.The cassettes of mineral fiber, on the contrary, is a budget option, and commonly used for the headlining large area.
- But tapes of aluminum and glass - this is the "golden mean", when, and look good, and the price is available.Each manufacturer offers the buyer to purchase the complete ceiling system.This eliminates the need for human self-selection of elements.Also
- ceiling tiles, the kit typically includes: trim angle, transverse and longitudinal sections, spring hangers, fasteners.Independently, you can select only point or raster fixtures commonly used in such cases.Chandelier not look harmonious on the coffered ceiling, is that if the mirror plate.
- Face profile for coffered ceiling decorated.She closes the joints between the tiles, giving the surface of the completed look.If in general terms, the assembly sequence is as follows.Layout the ceiling is similar to that of which we discussed in the previous chapter.
- only after the application of the central axes, draw lines belts crates, and the line indent, which will be installed on the trim angle.Actually, it begins with the installation of elements of the framework.Then, at the intersection of the axes mounting hangers made to overlap, and have them fixed transverse and longitudinal sections.
plates themselves set at the end of electrical work.No interlocks them not - they simply rely on cell sheathing.Therefore, for the dismantling of nearly enough to lift the plate and push it to the side.
