Stretch ceilings have become popular recently.Most people consider them quite expensive ceiling coverings.
But if properly calculate the cost of plasterboard, then stretched canvas will not much more expensive.Most importantly - make a qualitative measurement of a tension ceiling.
stretch ceiling and its features
Stretch ceiling - a modern ceiling covering.It was first invented in Switzerland in the 20th century.Since that time, production expanded in other countries.What
- In our state to use such ceilings began in the 90s.Then they had a limited range of colors and slightly different in its properties and characteristics.
- name of the ceiling cover speaks for itself.The cloth is stretched and mounted on a surface with a specially designed fastening systems.
Note.Compared with the usual gypsum or plastered ceilings, suspended at the moment occupy first place in popularity.
systems for mounting tension ceiling
To date, there are two types of fasteners, which are used for the installation of stretch ceiling paintings.Before using them carried out a qualitative measurement of a stretch ceiling is determined by its type and only then calculates the required fasteners.There
- Harpoon system for installation.
- Both systems are widely used, and their selection depends on the quality of the fabric and the weight of the whole structure.
- In its materials for manufacturing are classified into plastic and aluminum profiles.Of course, the most robust and reliable aluminum profiles are.Plastic
not have such a high specification.
- Harpoon system is quite flexible fasteners.Using it is easy installation using special canvas spatula with a bent end.
This type of fastening is suitable for rooms that are often flooded from above.It is able to withstand very high voltages.
Council.For Mounting tension ceilings of PVC film should be used aluminum profile, which is able to withstand heavy loads.
- Shtapikovaya fastening system best suited for the fabric ceilings that are less elastic than the PVC fabric and thus create less stress on attachment.
- clip-fixing is also suitable for mounting tissue tensioning the canvas.He does not have that strength, as the harpoon system, but is also capable of withstanding heavy loads.
- V-fasteners with properties very similar to the system shtapikovoy mounting tension of the web.
Council.For mounting tension fabric fastening system should be taken with a small margin in case of unforeseen situations (breakdowns in the process profile, and so on).
Species stretch ceiling structures
Before measure ceilings need to initially determine their shape and the structure itself, which can be:
- two-level, everything depends on the imagination of the designer.
Themselves canvas stretch ceiling can be:
- PVC film.
last have a matte or glossy finish.
stretch ceiling fabric
In order to determine how to measure the suspended ceiling made of cloth, it is necessary to deal with its texture, properties and applications.
Currently fabric stretched canvas has a large range of colors and imitations of textiles.By its properties, it differs from the PVC web.
stretch ceiling fabric:
- fairly robust and reliable thanks to its surface mounting.
- its installation can be done on any surface (stone or wooden).
- is considered an environmentally friendly material, since its production uses only natural fabrics that are processed by special means to impart web flexibility and elasticity.
- practicality of it is that the surface is clean it often is required.And if there is a need, you can wipe it with a dry cloth or a vacuum cleaner with a small conventional power.
- its surface can be painted an almost unlimited number of times.In this case, all will depend on the quality of the web.
- has a long service life, which is at least 10 years.
- Moisture resistance of the ceiling is in terms of in the middle.This is due to the fact that webs of tissue, despite numerous treatment facilities under prolonged exposure to moisture can absorb it, and start at the same time warp.
Council.Tensioning the web of fabric should not be used for registration of the kitchen area, since it can absorb odors and on its surface are visible grease stains or deposits which are formed during the cooking process.
- With a wide range, you can create original design ceiling surface in the bedrooms, nurseries, living rooms and other spaces.
And with paint ceiling will look every time a new way.See photos of premises with tension fabric ceiling.
main advantage of tissue stretch ceiling is that you can make yourself.
process of making stretch ceiling surface of the fabric
The price of such a ceiling is not too different from the factory production.But to do it yourself - take a lot of pleasure.
This will require:
- Textile fabric, the width of which will be exactly the width of the room, and even be a bit of a margin (20-30 cm).
- fastening system quality, the choice of which depends on the severity of the web.
- dowels and screws for mounting fasteners.
- Hammer or screwdriver, which is replaced by a conventional drill with a special nozzle.
- spatula with a bent end (metal aluminum for dense textile and rubber - for delicate fabrics).
- Building levels for smooth installation fastening system.
- Cretaceous or laser level to determine the exact size of the canvas and the center of the room, which is required in the case of mounting the main lighting fixture.
- This ceiling can be used and additional lighting.They are also available by using stationery knife and sharp scissors to make the holes in the fabric.
In these works it is worth considering that the tissues are different, and many of them can rastrepyvatsya a result of cutting.To avoid this, these edges are treated with white glue in a transparent manner and the usual wax, which are glued thread.
- How to measure the suspended ceiling for the independent production?It's pretty simple.
To do this will need a tape measure that measures the length and width of the room.Since the web is not too elastic for the reason that there is no special treatment substances, these dimensions need not only guided by the two walls.
for proper calculation should be four indicators.
- How to make the installation of the web?All works are carried out without exposure to high temperatures.There will need 1-2 assistant.
on the web pre-mounted system for the installation and its second part on the wall.Using a spatula is inserted into the tissue fastening slots and securely attached therein.
begin the process you need to work the corners of rooms, gradually moving them to the center.The video shows an example of mounting the tissue web.
How to make a measurement of tissue tensioning webs one level
The process is not too complicated, and all actions are easily performed with his own hands, if you can not hire a specialist in this field.
Council.Before you make measurements of suspended ceilings textiles should be evaluated for the presence of surface roughness and defects.
Such action is particularly important to do so as the number of instruments used and the material depends precisely on such indicators.
for proper measurement of tissue tension fabric need these parameters:
- length of the room.
- deviations from the plane surface of the rough ceiling.
- height of the room.
According to these indicators set the optimum height of the construction of a stretch ceiling and the method of installation, which can run on:
- Wall at the top surface.
- ceiling at the junction of wall and rough ceiling.
have a very large number of online services that allow you to quickly and accurately perform the calculation of the required fabric.
Metering two-level stretch ceiling
Metering two-level stretch ceiling a bit more complicated than single-level.Here at the surface will need to initially mark the boundaries of the first and second level of the ceiling coverings.
Already starting from the project on the ceiling, to be known width and length of the stretch ceiling.
When measuring stretch fabrics it is worth considering that the less elastic fabric ceilings and from size should substantially conform to the required.What can be said about the film, which are subjected to high temperatures can take many forms.From the size may be less than a few centimeters.
for measuring such a complex structure is a certain instruction, according to which the specialist will be able to correctly identify the number and size of the future of the web tension.
In order to know how to properly measure ceilings need to initially consult with a specialist in this field.As a rule, he knows all the nuances of this process and determines how tightly can behave in this or that situation.
