How to glue the ceiling tiles have a lot of videos in the internet.And this is caused because the material is in demand.
There are many advantages, but there are drawbacks.But sometimes it is simply irreplaceable.
This article will show how to do the job with their own hands and not to resort to outside help.So you can significantly reduce the cost of the work.
below will be given step by step instructions to perform this operation.
Ceiling tiles made of polystyrene
As an example, we decided to take a tile from polystyrene.For such a ceiling material most commonly used.And it has its reasons.
first step is to choose the material the one that is right for your room.These elements can be glued to almost any surface.
It is often called the glue.
The front part can be of several types:
- can be painted in any color under.
Note: If you choose to consider one more feature.For rooms with high humidity is better to
which is sold in the form of waterproof extruded panels.
panels are of three types:
- Pressed panel, or you can say and stamped.Their thickness is 6-7 mm;
- injection plates with a thickness of 9-14 mm.This product is first molded and then sintered raw material in relevant molds;
- tile extruded, which is done by pressing the strip material.After producing the coated paint or film.
a standard size 50/50 for the embodiment in the form of a square and 16.6 / 100 form, which has the shape of a rectangle.
Advantages and disadvantages of the ceiling tiles
Like any material, it has its pros and cons.First just need to understand it is suitable for you or not.
increased demand suggests that this material has many positive:
- This eco-friendly and lightweight material.It has a dense structure and has soundproofed and insulated ;
- Easy to install.All the elements quite simple cut and fastened.Such work can be done with their own hands and without the need for outside help;
- material is fireproof element;
- You can select and adjust the color and tint.
- elements do not perceive a moist environment and can therefore be mounted in the bath and sauna;
- This design is durable enough.It does not rot and will last for a long time;
- This coating perfectly hides minor defects of the base ceiling;
- low price items, also attracted consumer.This element is significantly lower than the cost of the tiles;
- Easy care material can attract and is an advantage for harvesting can be used conventional wet rag with soapy water.And a small contamination is easily removed with a conventional eraser.
proposed material has its drawbacks, too, with which to be reckoned.So
- This product does not tolerate direct sunlight and during the time he turns yellow and loses its original color;
- During the mounting of the many eating joints and therefore will not be the type of structural integrity;
- So there are some difficulties about the installation of lighting, for example you can not fix the built-in fixtures;
- These boards are not able to hide the considerable unevenness of the ceiling;
- This material is poorly flammable, but melts and preferably close to its surface does not mount incandescent lamps.Or it is necessary to use reflectors .
Warning: chandelier with incandescent bulbs do not hang closer than 30 cm from the surface.When heated, the material can be deformed.This material is a thermoplastic.
- If you have a chandelier hanging and you do not plan to change it, then simply need to replace incandescent bulbs with energy saving
This work can be done yourself, though there are some nuances that are worth vypolnyat.Videohow to glue the ceiling tiles, you can see on our website.
All the work is divided into several stages.This will be discussed further.
Training base ceiling
Reference plane ceiling, is the basis for fixing.During installation, we only repeat its contour.
Therefore for quality and installation required to properly prepare the plane:
- First we need to find out the alignment of the reference plane to the floor.To do this is to use a hydraulic level.
to start finding the lowest level in the room and put a mark with a pencil;
- We add material thickness and again put a mark:
- After that we need to move the line on the other walls.That helps the hydraulic level that most accurately permits.
We transfer the mark at the other wall;
- must now connect all the marks with each other.To do this, use nylon string and repel the plane.
We got a perfect line of fasteners.
Note: If the deviation of the line drawn on the ceiling of the order of 5 mm, then you can simply glue the tiles.If the deviation is greater, then the need to align the ceiling.
If necessary, add material to 2 cm should hold the plaster surface.A larger amount, consider suspended ceiling.
After determining the level of attachment, you can easily determine what to do next.If you need to install or plaster suspension system, it can be read on our website, where there is a complete and step by step instructions on the implementation of this work.
We cover mounting plitki.Nekotorye say you can glue or remove whitewash (sm.Mozhno whether ceiling tile glue to whitewash - doing the right thing).
There are plenty of adhesive, which allows it to do right by whitewashing .However, if you read the posts on the forums, then it becomes clear that this is not always true and, therefore, all the work can go on smarku.
therefore not worth the risk and taking chances:
- to clean the plane of whitewash or paint.This is explained in detail on our web site;
- look.If there is a large sink, then why not make the plaster surface.
If shells are not big then you can immediately cover the surface with primer.It will improve the connection surfaces.
Warning: Prefer primer with deep penetration.It will increase the quality of the connection.
From the choice of material will depend on the lifetime of the assembly.Therefore, you should not make mistakes.
- Some prefer to use the time-adhesive mounting.Or choose mounting polymeric compositions.
suit you better, it is necessary to tear according to the instructions supplied with the material;
- Fixing can be carried out and liquid nails. This composition quite thick, allowing it to apply on surfaces with slight irregularities;
- This work can be carried out with the use of acrylic putty.It provides a reliable connection.
It is possible and to cover the seam between the elements.
Choosing a location tile
Select the correct start gluing it means to ease the installation.
There are two types of work:
- If the room is not large, then the work can be done parallel to the wall.In this embodiment, the work should begin on the angle, which is opposite the entrance.
This space is most visible at the entrance and noticed all the errors;
- second option is applied to areas with a large area.Such wall structures are not parallel to each other and therefore, the previous method is not suitable.
There should be fixing the tiles from the center of the room.And fastening is performed on the diagonal spaces .
often chosen as the center of the chandelier, of course if it is not much offset from the center.To check this option, you must take the nylon thread and fight off two lines diagonally across the room.
place of their intersection, and point to the geometric center.
Note: If you choose the second option should be taken into account immediately, and material consumption.It will be higher than in the first.
Therefore, it should take into account when buying.
When choosing a method of fixing should be based on each individual room.You can apply and their combined method.
is right for your stroeniyu.Eto will still depend on the pattern.
So to start is better to make a drawing.If you do edging plane with another color, and then should start to mounting border.
seam in this embodiment has a weighty significance.It will be immediately evident, and so it should be done very carefully.
When we made preparations to the reference plane and apply the foundation.Then you can begin to mount directly to the tiles.
For a start it must be said that the material should bring to the room for the night before mounting.He has to get used to the temperature regime of the room.
To mount will be considered a more complex version, this is the second.It is suitable for a large plane.
- to start conducting two lines that are perpendicular to and connects the two sides of the ceiling coverings.Where they intersect, is where we will start fixing elements .
In this embodiment, all parts of the ceiling are arranged in a regular geometric shape.When buying keep in mind that the amount of waste will increase, which will lead to increased costs .;
- If you choose edging plane with elements of a different color, then the work will be done a little differently.To begin to outline a regular geometric shape on the ceiling with a pencil or marker.
Moreover, this figure should have a regular geometric shape .If when fixing tiles, it is not completely plane will touch the wall, it's not scary.
Edge can be pasted skirting and this error will be hidden.When you should carefully Gaugeable diagonal pattern, this can be used nylon thread.
Warning: When the figure should take into account the size of the tiles.Ideally, you should place only integer elements.If this does not work, then you should apply the pattern.
only on the basis of a good ceiling tiles can be placed as paste the video, you can see.But we must find the right mix and to work.
When selecting adhesive base liquid nails, described in the manual, which is given when purchasing.If you choose a filler, then there will have to learn to do it correctly ka.From
proper cooking will largely depend on the service life of the structure.
Consider this question in more detail:
- quarter Fill the bucket with water.Then start to fall asleep in a dry mixture;In
- while backfilling the dry mixture, stirring the solution with a trowel;
- After the whole mixture fill, should be made smooth.To do this it is best to use a drill with a nozzle.
can use it to make a homogenous mass without lumps.It should resemble the cream viscosity.
Warning: When you buy dry mix, should pay attention to its shelf life.Avoid buying material in the winter markets.
mixture may be nipped by the frost, and then you will not be able to do it efficiently.
ceiling tile was purchased as gluing video is presented below.Now it is necessary and proceed directly to the manufacture of construction.
Before fastening elements better surface primed twice.This will improve the quality of the bonding surfaces.
- This material is perfectly cut.But if it does, then it may be broken and the pattern.
Therefore, before starting work better rearrange stuff.Divide it into three heaps of size.
greatest number of the second turn.With this stack, and should start fixing;
- applying adhesive bases is done in two ways.The difference lies in the surface of the adhesive application framework.
It can be applied on the ceiling or on the tile.The second method is more suitable for a beginner;Home
- we noted the intersection of lines on the ceiling.It is from this place and begin the installation.
first tile should be applied to dry on the plane and to determine the correct placement.Checks for interference, if they are, then it should be removed;
- Remove the tiles and put on it a mixture with a notched trowel.The thickness of the layer should be about 5 mm .;
- After that you should make a direct rail line exactly attachment.She did not give shift element.
We put up against the rail element and presses.We sit down and pressed tile;
- So continue to mount components on both sides of the line;
- During attachment to apply construction crosses, which will ensure a smooth seam and let stand at a right angle mounting elements;
- If you do edging plane of another color, then begin to work with this line of contact between the different border colors.
This line will be the most noticeable.Therefore, you want to make the most of joint quality;
- Now, when the tile is glued, and you can hide the joint line with the surface of the Seine.To do this and apply the ceiling moldings.Who will finish the installation and klnstruktsii.
How to glue tiles on the ceiling of the video you can see below, but remember, this work requires accuracy and does not accept hurry.All must be carefully checked and vymeryat.
material price is not so high, and if the work done by hand, and then the cost of the product is significantly reduced.Here you can see photos and to fulfill the work.
If you do everything according to the technology, then the product will last you for years to come.
