At the moment, along with plenty of ceiling structures in great demand among the population use PVC ceilings.There are different types of such a coating.
Species PVC ceilings
can be of two kinds:
- tensile structures.
- Suspended ceilings.
In appearance they have great differences.The photo below is an example.
Note.Also, they are different in material, density and functional properties and characteristics.
Tension PVC fabric
Stretch ceilings made of PVC have recently become very popular.They have excellent properties.
They are made only from high quality polivilhloridnoy film.They have excellent elasticity, however have a fairly sophisticated technology of its installation.
- In appearance they can mimic a variety of materials.Also, there is the possibility of printing on the film itself.
- ceilings PVC films are considered to be environmentally friendly.They can be used for decoration of children's rooms and even the rooms that have high humidity.
- stretched canvas PVC is not able to perceive the effects of moisture.
surface does not absorb dirt and quite easy to clean.You can use detergents and cleaning products.
Council.Clear PVC film must be carefully, because the entire structure rests on the weight and wrong or reinforced pressed onto the surface of the entire structure can start to deform.
the color registration have different options, the surface of this coating can be:
- There are also satin surface which has a reflective effect, pearl, which has a rather interesting design.
- Became popular translucent film.It is able to create lighting effects on the surface of the ceiling, through which visually differentiate the space of the room.
- perforated film is quite interesting.Through its small holes will be visible bright light.
properties tension PVC fabric:
- strength and practicality.
- moisture resistance and fire resistance.
- ability to withstand relatively high temperature conditions.
- Frost, this indicator can be only up to a certain temperature.
Council.This type of ceiling is not recommended for use in rooms that are not heated and have a fairly low temperature conditions (-5-10 ° C).
price for this type of ceiling construction is quite high.Especially if it is a mirror surface or a pearl.
But often stretched canvas with the surface should not be used in the bedroom, as it reflects the effect can cause discomfort.
Mounting tension ceilings of PVC film
This type of stretch ceiling mounted quite difficult.The reason is that the technology installation may at first glance seem difficult.
need to work:
- special heat gun, which heats the room to a certain temperature.
- profiles of thick plastic mount, which are fixed to the surface using dowels.
Council.In such works do not use screws, as they are not capable of withstanding heavy loads when stretching the fabric.
- spatula with a bent end, which makes it quite quickly paste PVC film in profile.
- Building level for a smoother installation fixing profile.
- Tape measure and pencil.
- With the level initially set the height of the ceiling.Pencil made on the surface of the walls a certain point.
On them will be mounted to mounting tension profile of the web.
- then attached profile and have them inserted PVC film.Pre-room heat gun is heated to a temperature of 70-80 degrees.
This level of temperature contribute to greater elasticity fabric and make it easier to mount.
- Unfortunately, with his own hands to perform all the work does not work, because working with tensile structures can only professionals.
Council.Independent mounting tension ceiling could negatively affect the quality of work, as in the course of their movement with the wrong web may burst.
Begin installation from the corners of the room.Then the canvas is mounted in the center of the room, and only gradually all actions carried out on the perimeter.
The video shows an example of work with tensile structures made of PVC film.
Suspended PVC ceiling
This type of coverage is different from the previous one that is not web, which requires stretching during installation, and finished panels, which are fairly easy to install.
At the moment there are several types of suspension PVC Ceiling:
- such coatings are made on the basis of a polymer which is widely used for the manufacture of pipes for water, syringes and other necessary appliances.
- It differs not only for its strength but also durability.
- Currently suspension PVC materials have a wide range of design.The color scheme is also diverse.
- Rack PVC ceiling.
- in a lining.
- The most interesting and unusual is considered a ceiling rack PVC.It has a mirror or matte surface.
- rack ceiling has specific properties and characteristics.It is very durable, as for the manufacture of PVC is characterized by its strength.
is also worth considering that the ceiling is water-resistant and its surface will not accumulate dirt.
Council.Clean the rack ceiling with any surface can be only a mild detergent.
- used these designs in any room, as they have no restrictions.They are considered to be environmentally friendly and can not cause harm to human health.
- surface of PVC does not corrode and does not fade in the sun.Also it is able to withstand relatively high and low temperature extremes and thus not deformed.
- weight of the ceiling cover is quite small, so it will not cause additional stress on the surface.PVC panels for ceiling and can not burn for a long time to withstand the direct impact of the fire source.
- They have no pores that may serve as source for the formation of bacteria.On the surface, there will never be formed mold and fungal diseases.
cost of such a ceiling structure is very small.
- durability of the material is characterized by its life, and in PVC panels it is not less than 15 years.
- Mount PVC ceiling with his hands very quickly and simply.After such work does not leave any debris.
How is the installation of PVC strip ceiling panels
How to make a ceiling made of PVC?Initially, the rough surface is made crate.
This will require:
- wooden boards and strips of the same diameter.
- dowels and screws.
- screwdriver and hammer.
- Starter profile.
- Building level.
- Tape measure and pencil.
- Just set the height of the ceiling structure using a spirit level.
pencil on the wall surface makes certain mark.On them is mounted starter strip plugs, which are able to securely attach the ceiling.
Council.The thickness of the wood boards or planks is to choose based on the prescribed ceiling level.
- crate mounted to the surface of the plugs, and all design elements are fastened together with screws with long legs.
- While such work can be done quality insulation of the premises or the insulation.For these works the solid materials, such as styrofoam or polyurethane foam.
then begins installation of PVC panels to the ceiling, it would require:
- Tape measure and pencil.
- staple gun.
- screws and screwdriver.
- first panel is inserted into the pre-assembled starter strip.To attach it securely in her staple gun is used.His braces will not take up much space.
- between a panel fastened with special locks, which are located at the end of the material.
Council.For more tightness is often used sealant that handles all the joints.
- After completion of installation pvc panels perimeter is made with decorative ceiling moldings, which currently has a wide variety of design.
- they are mounted with the help of liquid nails or special glue.You can also use foam skirting board, which by their weight are not too large and rather quickly and easily fixed to the surface.
How is collected and attached to the surface of the ceiling crates of PVC, the video shows.
