installation PVC panels to the ceiling
Suspended ceilings have always been a practical solution for cladding.The most common technology used assembling PVC ceiling panels.
This instruction will learn about all the points that you need to know when using this construction materiala.Esli you are interested in installation of PVC panels to the ceiling video clip shown clearly tell about all the stages.
Start installation work
PVC panels are hollow plastic sheets that are used for decoration.
Despite the relative simplicity of PVC ceiling has a set of advantages:
- reasonable price compared to similar materials;
- ability to hide under the cover of various communications;
- alignment of curvature of the surface without dismantling the original cover;
- ease of installation and subsequent operation (hereinafter may be freely dismantle);
- and most importantly - increased resistance to a humid environment.
Like any decoration material, plastic has and disadvantages.The basis of this mate
Plastic sheets do not have a large margin of safety.When planning installation of PVC panels to the ceiling, minimize the number of additional facilities on it.
fairly common cases of chips and scratches on sheets and rough handling.
preparation for work
Well, let's move seamlessly from theory to action.Before you start the installation of the ceiling directly from the plastic panels (sm.Montazh plastic panels on the ceiling with his hands), should be defined with a set of tools and plastic sheets themselves.
For the finish you need to stock up on:
- plastic U-shaped corners or decorative moldings;
- metal profile (and in their absence - with wooden bars cross-section 5x5 cm) to form a frame;
- softwood (their choice depends on the profile of the frame);
- powerful drill;
- instrumentation for accurate marking;
- dowel-nails to secure the base frame;
- fastening clips and punch.
PVC panels are the raw materials that will further trim the ceiling.To carry out the installation of PVC ceiling panels can only be full confidence in the quality of the material.
Therefore, the purchase is necessary to approach them with great care.
- First, check the outer surface of the sheets.They must be perfectly smooth.
If there are any longitudinal distortion, goods can be considered defective.
- to quality PVC panels provides a large number of internal stiffeners.They will ensure the future strength of the ceiling frame.
- structural strength of the plastic sheet is checked by eye.PVC panel is fairly short, and then explore it.
considered normal slight deformation.Cracks naturally unacceptable.
Council.This point is particularly important, because it will reveal the raw materials used for production.Dents in the panels after pressing indicates the presence of large amounts of chalk, which is unacceptable!
All panels must be painted uniform.The presence of greyish says about the use of recycled materials.
quality of PVC panels is poor.
final price of PVC panels in the end depends on the amount of materials.To calculate, measure the area of the ceiling.
For those who forgot, remember: it is necessary to multiply the length by the width.The resulting value of the area on the 1st sheet (it can be found on the packaging).So
- Today's construction market offers a wide range of panels, the choice of which depends on the nature of these works, the room features .For example, the ceiling panels are different in width, texture by applying decoration technology.
To avoid confusion and disappointment, pick up a few photos with the desired model panels.
- installation PVC panels to the ceiling is better to postpone, if the ambient temperature is below 0 ° C. Do not unpacked panels that previously visited the street in the low temperature (10 ° C), should stand at room temperature for about 12 hours.
If they are brought in from the cold, the "acclimatization" is not less than 48 hours.
- Before the main work is recommended to clean working surface of the excess solution, and then apply a coat of water-based paint to create a stable emulsion.
at this stage will make the alignment guides on the level.
This task includes:
- Breakdown of the perimeter of the ceiling in the area.For this purpose the working space held horizontal, which can be achieved using a spirit level.
Before you carry out the installation of PVC ceiling panels, will also be required to hold inside the communications and wiring.To not have to remove the entire finish system must be properly laid.Wires carried out in a protective cable channels.
- agree in advance to indent the surface potolka.Dlya this is done counting.Using cord
paint, draw a line on the wall.To avoid curvature not lose sight of the corners.
Tip: Everyone decides for himself what type of frame to use.Members choose frames with wooden base of the bars.
This design is attractive for its low cost and ease.
At the same time for wet rooms (tub) PVC ceiling installation is best done using galvanized profiles to prevent further deformation.
- In marked markup mount rails by using dowels, nails.Future sheathing is perpendicular to the direction of panel installation.
Once the foundation is ready, you can begin to mount hangers.Do not forget to determine their pitch (60 cm).
- to secure the ceiling fillets attach the corners, then place it in the latch fastening strap.
installation PVC panels
Getting to the main part of the work.Experienced builders will refresh the memory imprinted installation of PVC ceiling panels in the video.
But beginners do not remain without a detailed description:
- mounting on the ceiling panels of PVC carried out their pre-layout size.To the ends at the interface was a perfect touch, go to the next sheet only after the previous installation.
- Cut the panel using a jigsaw.This shorter length make the width of the premises by 3-5 mm.
Be careful when cutting.Do not hurry, do not you can rumple the sheets.
- Sand edge using sandpaper or abrasive mesh. Before the installation make sure to check whether there is a film on the plastic.
if present, remove it.
Tip: Begin with the installation of PVC ceiling panels should be illuminated with the most seats.It is here treated eyes of guests, so any mistakes in the form of inconsistencies will be particularly highlighted.
Installation of the first sheet is carried out by inserting a dense profile.This can be done if care to have one narrow end of the panel, and then another.
Then advance the profile of the panel wide end.The panels themselves have an angle of 90 degrees to the wall.
Otherwise, the remaining elements will not be included in the grooves.
- to profile frame plates are fixed with screws along the entire length.If you do this with the help of bits, be careful.
When tightening, it can break a hole in the panel and then the whole process will have to start anew.When you are doing installation of PVC ceiling for advance security drill hole.
Then you can safely tighten the screw.Check that the plastic sheets maximum abut each other
- Installation of ceilings of PVC panels completes the installation of the last sheet.Cut along it, then - in length.
Thus the basis take a distance less than a millimeter distance from the wall to the profile.Let the panel moves into the corner until it stops.
second side will hang, however, and it can be inserted into the slots.
- between the last and penultimate panel will doorway, but to pull plastic sheeting hands does not always work.In solving the problem masking tape will help.
pasted a few of his pieces on the surface, you can move up to the previous panel last.It's done: Installation of PVC panels to the ceiling is finished!
described technology is not universal.There have been described the most suitable methods, although each makes installing PVC panels to the ceiling, as it is convenient.
For example, quality buildings where walls are smooth, the technology of bonding plastics sheets using an adhesive gypsum based.More information can be found in numerous movies, where everything lucidly explained.
