mirrored ceiling - it's not just the external aesthetics and versatility.Due to this structure, it is possible to visually increase the height of any room, which is important if the sizes are small.
In today's construction market can find the materials from which produced mirrored ceiling structures, such as glass, aluminum, plastic.We consider these types of structures and methods of installation.
Types mirrored ceilings and mounting methods
Features classic glass mirrored ceiling
This design is a collection of classic paintings or tinted with a reflective coating with a thin rectangular, square, rombovoy, round shape.Along with a glass mirror with amalgam is widely used plexiglass.
material is lighter in weight, it is easier to process, the price modest glass analoga.Uchityvaya that the whole fabric can not be set up at the ceiling, then use composite plates of the mirrors of different sizes and shapes.
Upon completion of the installation works to get at least a beautifu
mounting structure is made on false ceiling or directly on the ceiling in several ways:
- boards just glued.
important to remember to make a mirrored ceiling in this manner, you will need well-prepared flat surface.Otherwise, the reflection is broken and fixing unreliable.Items not recommended to mount plastered on the plane if it is done, it is likely peeling.
most optimal variant of this solution would be the installation base surface for the mirror elements of moisture-resistant GLA.Originally mounted metal frame plasterboard.Step
mounting rails GLA should be approximately 30 cm. This value is due to the need to prevent sagging rails (so the distance is less than the traditional).As the material for the fastener strips, depending on the strength of the base used anchor bolts or screws.
distinctive features of design
preparatory surface under mirrored ceilings does not need painting and decorating, the elements are mounted directly on it.It is possible to treat the surface with a special compound that will reliably protect the amalgam of moisture.
- To mount the mirror surface is used a solution of silicone rubber.
is important to remember that it is prohibited to use glue for aquariums formulations solvents.
- Mirror plates are mounted with screws or screws.
substrate (drywall or plywood) is mounted to the ceiling by means of fasteners such as molii or butterflies.
- mirror elements are glued and screwed at the same time.
for attachment points have special caps that serve as a kind decorative element.After mounting the wall structure is closed plinth.
- mirror tiles mounted by means of suspension.
To do this, use special hangers.But it is important to apply the fastening system, which is designed for a load of at least 10 kg. / Sq.
Each work has its own technology.And if it does not perform, you get a low-quality result.
therefore advise you to do everything right and only use high-quality material.
Mirror plastic - it's polystyrene plates, which are sold in rulonah.Pered how to mount the structure, the material is straightened under the weight of his day kept in the room where the installation will be carried out, for making optimum temperature.
This type of coating is smooth and embossed textures, in addition, this material is easy to use for curved shapes, thanks to the flexibility.
- Before you attach the mirror plastic, you must prepare the surface.Rough plastered surface and ground (sm.Gruntovka ceiling - a useful necessity).
- Mirror plastic is sold to the adhesive layer and without it.For mounting with self-adhesive will need a roller to squeeze out air bubbles.
- If there is no reason to apply a special adhesive composition based on PVA.Mirrored plastic - is the best option for rooms with low ceilings.
important to remember that for the ceiling of a mirror, not all plastics are suitable lighting.The material can not withstand intense heat from halogen lamps and other powerful lamps.
Aluminum mirrored ceiling
This type of design is incised on the surface of the joints. mounted using aluminum rack systems. First do the installation of metal hangers to the slab, and then set the rack.
Tension mirror construction
Regarding the stretch ceiling mirror, then they should talk about in more detail as the design is widely used in different rooms and requires no special training to work with the reference plane.The mirror surface is achieved by a glossy film that perfectly reflects light and has a very smooth surface quality, though imitation.
advantage of the tension ceiling mirror is a security breakdown and the collapse of mirror elements.Durable material has a long service life and are not fastidious in the care.
Mirrored ceilings are installed using the harpoon system of guide profiles on the perimeter of the ceiling plane, after which the material produced a stretch thermal equipment.
Mirror hanging rack and cassette ceilings
Mirror rack and cassette ceilings is also widespread, thanks to simple installation - the installation can be made with their own hands.Mirror slats are made from aluminum , often used in the construction of large office premises owing stringency appearance.
important to remember that depending on the material construction works are separated, and each method has its own instructions for use.
Features and installation of slatted mirror ceilings
This type of design is most suitable for rooms with high humidity.Mirrored ceiling rack is made of aluminum material that provides protection against corrosion and rust.
In addition, it can be washed frequently, so it can be safely installed in a bathroom.A game of lighting and mirrors give the room a special charm.The main advantage of the rack
mirrored ceiling - easy to install.
device selection and rack designs for mirror surface
aluminum strips cut from the rake desired length, which is bent on either side.The outer surface is polished and covered with a transparent protective layer.
width, tend to choose the universal.The thicker the material rack, the design will be more reliable. thickness should keep fit and prevent dents, do not bend during installation.
aluminum slats can be divided into 3 types:
- open , having a little invisible gap, the best option for high ceilings;
- closed , mounted back to back, on the principle of mounting battens reminiscent;
- with inserts , as open, but the gaps are closed with aluminum strips.
If purchased mirrored slats with chrome, should pay attention to the quality of parts.The ceiling should be free of cracks reflective coating which may occur due to improper transportation.
Step installation mirror suspended ceilings
Before you begin the installation work, it is best to view the video instructions.It is important to do the job accurately, without the use of excessive force.
one careless pressing entail a dent on the rail, which then no ispravit.V complete set of mirror strips include suspensions, tires, wall baseboards.
Each rack is equipped with the tires, so that later you can avoid distortions and izgibov.Iznachalno ceiling made under the mark mirrored slats.
markup includes the line, which will determine the position of the ceiling plane to overlap, and fixing the line.
Tip: If your plans include built-in lighting, it is necessary to provide the distance from the ceiling, taking into account the size of the body lamp base.
next step after the marking procedure is mounting, and start it with a mechanical fastening profile on the plane wall.End profile is mounted on the wall at the marked baseline using anchor bolts in increments of 30-40 cm, see photo below.
Further, the tire is mounted to a mirrored ceiling rack.Typically, the kit includes somewhat larger tires.
Before you mount the ceiling should be cut tire size metal shears. Then the tire is joined with the end profile.
- panel is then inserted into the slots profile and fixed with a latch on the bus.Rods are inserted into an intermediate profile between the main bars.
In order to give the surface an unusual appearance, use the rack with chrome or mirrored slats combined with the material, painted in gold or copper.
