Cassette metal ceilings are a structure made of aluminum or steel coated with a decorative variety of polymeric materials.Matte or glossy finish cassette size 595h595 mm.
most basic advantage, thanks to which the material is so widely used in the construction industry, it is a long operational period, and increased resistance to various mechanical damage.
necessary preparatory work, materials and tools for installation
Before designate a list of tools, we note, which features a metal perforated ceiling:
- first , unrestricted access to allinternal parts, which will install and repair electrical wiring and communications;
- second , this type of design calls for a considerable space for installation, so the case with low ceilings, most likely will not work for this device.
How to mount a metal ceilings can be found more detail on our website.
master What is needed for assembly work tool:
- building level (not less than 120 cm.);
- tape measure or meter for the building;
- Bulgarian or tin snips;
- boot knife;
- goggles and gloves;
- thin wire or twine.
Tip: It is necessary to acquire all of the construction kit manufacturer as material from different vendors can not be subject to regular join.
ceiling tiles hanging involves the use of the following materials:
- metal profile ceiling guide (1);
- intermediate guides (2.3);
- corners scaffoldings (4);
- suspensions (5);
- metal plates, ventilation and lighting.
Preparation for installation work
To begin to install metal coffered ceiling is necessary to prepare the room for optimal temperature range.When the material is purchased, it is necessary to hold room temperature (20-25 ° C) for at least 24 hours.
room should be warm and dry.
Tip: If you do not have such conditions, it is not recommended to make the installation, especially if it is a metal tape.They have a tendency to absorb moisture, and eventually it will affect the quality of the ceiling, so it may change over time, shape and color.
Further, please note that prefabricated metal ceiling cassette often do not coincide with the size of the entire area of the ceiling, still have to trim the edges.Therefore, in order not to spoil the aesthetics of the future of the ceiling, hanging frame structure must be symmetric with respect to the wall surface.
At the finish, the plates that are on opposite sides must be cut the same way.Design ceiling can be estimated due to the extreme value of the tapes were the same or less than half of the whole plate.
To do this, the entire length of the wall should be divided by the length of the plate.To add the remaining distance the length of the tape.The result is divided by 2 and get the size of the extreme metal plates.
Technology Installation of metal structures
All preparatory works are completed.And we come to the assembly coffered ceiling.
Metal ceiling tile installation comprises the steps of:
- corners are installed around the perimeter of the room.Mounted rake pristennaja, taking into account for the calculation of space lighting, communications, ventilation devices. MULTIDECK rack panels fixed at 40 cm , put it specifically in terms of the required distance.
photo, looks like near-wall rack, see below.
- then set suspensions, the number of suspensions is calculated as follows, the floor area should be multiplied by ½ the size of the tape.On one rail will take up to 4 hangers.
Where is the ceiling for the metal profile in between the points of intersection are fixed suspensions using anchor bolts.If additional devices that need additional suspensions.
- then set the guide metal profile ceiling.Initially, the main rail is cut at one end so that the intermediate profile inserted into the guide groove of the guide main unit with a pitch such as a metallic ceiling tile (its length).
main guiding profile should rest cheroots in the wall socket.The main points of the mounting rails installed an additional suspension.
and intermediate profile should be docked 90 * after installation.
- Profile metal ceiling and an intermediate setting.They are installed between all major profiles.
Interval setting should be equal width metalloplity.Docking with the skirting is done by cutting so that one end entered the trim moldings, and the second into the groove of the main guiding profile.
- final stage, a metal ceiling, its installation and the installation of lighting fixtures.Start of work on the installation is made from the middle of the room.
After complete calculation scaffoldings are cut edge of the fabric to size.The last plate is adjustable for form using special tools.Locking clips are used when the ceiling required fire protection design.
Tip: Even if the installation of metal ceiling does not seem too complicated anyway before starting work, it is best to study the video instructions.
perforated metal ceiling: detailed installation manual
Assembling metal ceiling construction is very similar to the assembly of plates Armstrong's all going to the same pattern, given the ease of installation, you can do everything with their hands.Prefabricated modules of metal tapes up 595h595 mm.
Installation works, like all suspended ceilings, begin by marking the plane of the wall.There adjusting the height of the ceiling and using the water level marked places are carried to all corners of the room, and then the line cord bounces around the perimeter of the room.
If you decide to install metal ceiling for the bathroom, make sure you buy the kit with increased resistance to a humid environment.
- Further along a broken line on the perimeter frame mounted wall surface.The fastener material is 6 mm diameter plugs of plastic and shurpa 2mm thinner plugs.
- then make markings on the ceiling plane.From the middle of the room is measured every 120 cm, which will be carrying the ceiling metal profile.
Tip: To save the attachment and attraction of external aesthetics, it is worth considering one point.If the width of the surface has an even number of metal plates, so the keeper should be a profile with an odd number will be in the middle plate.
for guiding profiles are also worth discourage cord markup profiles.Then go to the plumb line on the target, every 120 cm hangers are installed across the ceiling plane.
necessary to see to it that between the outer wall and the suspensions formed a minimum distance of 60 cm. In order to calculate the exact number of suspensions used coefficient of 1.96.«S-ceiling x 1.96 = number of suspensions."
For fastening hangers using the same plastic dowels.The only thing that is necessary to provide, it is the base material of the ceiling.
For concrete and brick using dowels with a hat.Basic guides are mounted with hangers and align exactly a long level.
Tip: If the ceiling area is too large, the accuracy level to level is not possible, it is best in this case to use nylon thread, pulling her right under the frame, across the guide device.One guideline is not enough, it is recommended prodelyvat procedure every 4 m.
After installing the guide profiles should be mounting rails, which will be based steel cell.This is a complex process that requires attention and accuracy.
spacing profiles of 120 cm, and the corners in the cell must be strictly an angle of 90 ° degrees or less. you need and the level of the construction area.
When large cells are exposed, set the profile to 60 cm and similarly controlled by the cell on the severity of the right angle.
is important to know that the displacement of the cell at least one degree entail a complete deformation of the structure (like dominoes) and then not be able to safely install the cartridge.
What do I need to provide additional installation
metal price ceiling depends on the material and tape from the manufacturer.When installing metal ceiling should follow some safety rules.
During installation, be sure to wear gloves and special protective glasses.Cassettes themselves are made of components that are based glass is in contact with a result which may be skin irritation.
clothes after work wash separately from other things.
