Repair completely on the shoulder any.If the damage is removed the panel and just changing to another;
- not complicated installation, which under the force almost anyone;
- most major disadvantage is the loss of usable space.But this will not escape.
But these losses have the opportunity to make a minimum;

- attract consumers and durability, which is at a height.The ceiling will last for decades;
- Pretty simple operation, which is not expensive.
Installation coffered ceiling
If you want all of what was said before and you come to terms with the loss of usable space.Then now we'll show you how to make a cassette ceiling with his hands and right.
All work is carried out in several stages.
Since then it all starts.In fact at the beginning of the work should not be distracted, and everything should be on hand.So
- you need a hydraulic or laser level.The first is quite expensive.And second, you can easily gain in retail or do themselves;
- you need and meter: a tape measure and square and building level;
- To fix should purchase hammer or hammer drill.And to perform mounting dowels;
Warning: Do not take rawlplugs.They do not provide stiffness and quality of the connection.Get
plastic pacifiers at retail and they screws, which should be more than a couple of mm from the orifice.It will make such a connection mounting quality.
- Also you will need: a sharp knife, a pencil go marker, Nylon thread, fishing line, pliers.
First of all it is necessary to measure the ceiling and a plan drawing boards.From this we will have to take shape and placement of the frame.
Warning: When you plan pay particular attention to the extreme of the wall panel.The last should be at least ½ of the area of a cell.
It is calculated as follows.Take the full length of the plane, and divide it by the width of the panel.
Whole number- this whole elements.Balance halve and get extreme elements.
They must be the same otherwise you break the whole look.He will not be symmetrical.
- Suspended ceiling cassette mounted on the frame, which should be made tough enough, because design has a certain weight and have the correct geometry.After all, the panels will be mounted right here and then not get the correct geometry of the plane;
- Please remove all previous coatings.On this subject there is a detailed article on our site.Do
inspection.If the previous coating peels off, then it should be removed with a hammer and chisel.
If there is a darkening plane or wound fungus (sm.Gribok ceiling - the appearance and remedies), then you should treat the surface with antiseptics, which are commercially available.Choose liquid deep penetration and make the process a couple of times;
- After drying the surface prime with the plane;
- now find the lowest corner of the room.We add the width of the profile and put a mark on the wall;
- Thereafter, the size must be transferred to the other wall.To do this and apply hydraulic level.
with which you can perform it accurately.Transmission;
- Now we obtained the risks must be connected and indicate the level of placing a ceiling.To do this, use nylon string and repel the plane.
now have a line of placing a ceiling, which we will adhere;
- Now cut the baseboard trim to desired size and fixed strictly on the line. It should be noted, can not do the installation right next to the wall ends.
Allow a small gap.That you get rid of many problems during expansion of the material.Fixing
do with dowels.Pre-made holes using the punch.
fastening points shall be located not less than 40 cm;
- Now do the layout and set the mark for attaching hangers.They tend to go 2-3 pcs.One panel.
They should be set at the intersection of the intermediate guide.The compound made using anchors, which cap is taken at least 13 mm.
also make layout for the installation and lighting fixtures.In these places, too, should make a mount hangers;
- now do basic installation guide.This is done in such a way: in the groove of the main track should become interim.
A guide for the main emphasis should be on-line trim, to which it should be supported.In places where the connection is the main guide, put extra hangers, it greatly increases the rigidity of the structure;
- After this is done by setting the intermediate guide.They should be inserted between the main guide.Provision
interval which is equal to the width of the plate.For proper docking with the near-wall skirting board should be cut to the desired size.
One side should be placed on a plinth prichtenny, and the other must be attached to the main guide groove;
After setting the framework necessary to conduct the wiring on the ceiling under the lighting.To do this, first of all find a place to install the junction box, to which should be easily accessible.So
- Install the junction box;
Note: Decide on the light before the fixing of the ceiling.If you decide to use energy-saving lamps.
Then you still have to purchase and mount step-down transformer, which must also be easily accessible.
- note the location of the fixtures.Attach here hangers.
cable access.All connections are done by means of special terminals, which will make the mount reliability and quality.
Avoid twists.In places the installation of lighting do the release cable, it should be sufficient for a free connection;
- install and connect lights.Enjoying the correct light distribution.
Make it mandatory.It is still possible to fix it with no problems.
After installation of the panels, it will be difficult to make.If you are satisfied.

if necessary pruning is done using a hacksaw with fine teeth;
- the placements do the following fixtures.Attach the panel and mark the center of the lamp output.They put
item on a flat surface and make a hole using a drill with a crown.Only properly pick up its diameter.
This can be done in the retail chains.At work do not make a strong push.
Otherwise, the material will have a snack and pull up.Do everything slowly and carefully;
- On the reverse side of the module has an arrow that indicates the direction of the installation.Do not be confused;
- For precision mounting better to pull the fishing line between the edges of the frame. on it and align the entire plane.
adjustment is performed using suspensions.In the eyes you do not.
And if not placed properly broken the plane of installation and you will spoil the whole appearance;
Warning: If you install should cut extreme elements.Make the correct placement.
If you do not specify a uniform fastening elements, then the broken configuration.
