Nowadays there are a lot of finishing materials for the ceiling.In this article, we want to tell you about one of them.It
aluminum cassette ceilings, it only recently entered the market sales, but has gained considerable popularity.But not all owners can arrange it.
It has its advantages and disadvantages.Here you can view photos and videos on the topic and then determine exactly how much it will suit you.
Advantages and disadvantages
The advantages can be directly attributed and mineral quality designs that speak for themselves:
- You can easily close all the irregularities of the ceiling and hide the pipe.This is especially practical for old buildings;
- When installing the system you will have free access to the ventilation and wiring.It is also important, especially when breakdowns;
- You can not worry about finishing the reference plane, which nothing can stop;
- Compared to other ceilings, aluminum ceiling cassette is quite easy to maintain .You can just do wet cleaning, avoiding abrasive cleaners;
- This design is fairly easy to install and with their hands (sm.Kassetnye ceilings - installation of their own hands).Thus it is possible to dismantle.
Also in case of damage, can easily make any replacement of the element;
- Ability to use virtually any lighting;
- This design reflects light and therefore can visually increase the room;
- With this coating finishing you will not be afraid of corrosion and moisture.Water resistance allows it to be installed even in a room with high humidity;
- material price is not too high.These ceilings can afford almost any person;
- This material is fireproof.
system also has its drawbacks:
- Cassette aluminum ceilings but not so expensive, but the ceiling plasterboard will be cheaper;
- During installation, you take away the free space of the room.Above that you should consider.
If the room low ceiling, so your equipment is unlikely to fit.
This system is perfect for rooms with forced ventilation.It promotes the free movement of air.
especially recommended to use in the following areas:
- In areas where high humidity and no permanent heating;
- In areas where there are higher health standards, hospitals, public places;
- In areas where there are increased requirements for ventilation.
Installation coffered ceiling
Cassette aluminum ceiling can be installed independently (sm.Kassetnye ceiling installation is done on their own), and lower than the cost of the work.Only when performing the installation should do everything step by step and right.
There are many factors that can affect the final result.That is why, and will be given instructions for the implementation of this work.
for continuous operation should prepare the necessary tools:
- Requires Meter is a tape measure and meter;
- Nylon thread;
- hydraulic level, which is in retail.Or you can do it yourself;
- Scissors on metal or Bulgarian with a circle;
As you can see, the list is not so great.Such tools have virtually any host.
It's pretty important stage of work, which will determine the appearance and location of the assembly.If not done correctly, the entire configuration is broken plane.So
- To begin to make a general plan of the premises;
Note: In preparing the plan should take into account the size of the panels.
Especially pay attention to the fact that the extreme elements must be the same length.That is the location of the parts should be symmetrically life.
- now determines the level of the ceiling installation.To do this, find the lowest corner of the room put a mark.
then added value hangers and fasteners.Stamp.This will be the level of placing the entire structure;
- Now this size, we need to move to the other wall.To do this, we use a hydraulic level.
That he will do the job most accurately;
- We transfer size, and now we have to connect the data points.To do this, use nylon thread.
With the help repel the line around the perimeter of which you will mount.
In this work you can not go wrong.It is right to do measurements and cutting parts.
Remember not properly done, it has to change anything will be possible.
- Now we need to attach the trim moldings.For a start it cropped to the size you want.
If the wall is made of wood, then you can make a mounting with screws .If the surface of concrete or brick.Then
to apply puncher.A fixation performed using dowels.
Warning: When attaching the Not applicable Not kits dowels.Get them separately.
Take them pacifiers and screws that should take less than a couple of mm from the orifice.It is this ratio provides a reliable connection.
- compounds do at a distance of 40 cm from each other;
- now makes attaching hangers.Typically one element compound is 3-4;
- Mounting is performed using anchors with a minimum diameter of 13 mm.Just install the hangers at the locations of light fixtures and fans.
Make wiring for lighting
For this to work we need to choose the point of placing the elements and make a mark on the ceiling:
- Then find the point of connection and fasten the wiring junction box;
- then do channels and makes attaching the cable.
Note: When making connections, avoid twists.Use terminals which provide reliable connection.
- When buying a cable note how much power he will survive. Provide gap upwards.Requires power supply.
For this to work it is necessary to make appropriate arrangements and do the job properly:
- cut end of the guide, do it in the following way, we need to face the intermediate rail couldfree to enter into the groove of the main guide.The distance is determined from the length at the plate.
cut the edge of the main guide should be based on the trim area;
- When connecting the main guide to apply additional suspension.Dangle basic guide, and should pay attention to the dock, it must be carried out strictly at right angles;
- make adjustments in height by means of quick clamping clip;
- now perform intermediate mounting rails.We put them among the major carriers.
interval should correspond to the width of the element. Make pruning to one edge lying on the near-wall baseboard and the second was inserted in the main guide.
After the previous works are equipped with ceiling slabs aluminum tape:
- Assembly begin to perform from the middle of the room.In the first laid all plates are integers.
- then makes cutting other items that will fit on the edge of the walls.Set them too.
If the plate is not completely adjacent to the near-wall baseboard, then it should be cut in the desired configuration tool.
- Do not forget to handle the edges of plates where done trimming.Cut away the burrs, they should not be visible.
Cassette ceiling gated
ceiling cassette can be open or closed.In the second embodiment, there are some features of the installation.So
- Profile When buying pay attention to him.For closed-end configuration is slightly different.There
mounting hole should be located on the bottom shelf of the profile.These are inserted into the panel and its edge;
- the bracket profile is parallel to the wall, a step should be equal to the width of the panel.
Ultimately frame is a parallel arranged sections.These and makes attaching panels, the edges of which are bent at an angle of 90 *.
edges of the plate snap in the profile.Thus the panels can move freely along its length.
Now you have the concept and be able themselves to establish such a system, and open and closed.The most important thing is not to rush and do everything carefully.
