ceiling mounting plastic nowadays quite common.The apartment to finish this is rarely used, but in the veranda or a country house that option is quite common.
Mounting plastic ceiling with his hands is quite common.Therefore, today we will just know.In
Advantages and disadvantages of the material
Installation of ceilings made of plastic is simply irreplaceable, and it has its own reasons:
- This design is not capricious and its services do not require a lot of time and effort;
- This item is in the retail trade and with a large assortment.You can choose exactly what you need.From the color widths and ending;
Note: If you choose this material, then when you buy should not take cheap goods from China.Pay attention to the well-known brands.
fact that no high-quality products, it is quite brittle material.And you can just take a stronger hand and then left the track.
And more, cheaper products can be harmful and in contact with direct sunlight, it will give off n
- It is possible to choose the desired panel even color and texture;
- This material is not imbues moisture, and therefore it can be applied in almost any type of premises;
- During installation, you can hide any irregularities to the reference plane.Wherein the base surface is also not necessary to align;
This product can be divided by a decorative layer deposition technique:
- plain white panels without texture.
price of such material is the lowest.This economy version;
- There are more expensive models.On which side is on the front cover.
Such elements shine.On their surface paint applied.It is more expensive items.
Choose quality material
for plastic ceiling is necessary first of all to take high-quality material.Here, experts give some advice.
This is the initial stage in which it is not necessary to make a mistake.
- should immediately pay attention to the part geometry.The edge should be smooth and evenly coated pattern;
- front plane must be completely smooth and even. Spend on her hand and you do not have to feel distortion.
From the outside should not be visible internal stiffeners;
- After that, take a few panels of the same width and count the ribs.What will be more, and the high-quality material.
should also pay attention to the thickness of the edges than it is, the better;
- Take a few panels and try their dock.High quality material is included in the groove simply.Nothing touches, and does not stick.
plane turns flat and are not visible elements of docking;
- Now select any element and squeeze it with your fingers.The panels should not be simply and easily deformed.
When you can rest easy trail that gradually decreases.Not just high-quality material can crack;
- Next, we check for bending.To do this, we take the angle and bend it a few times.The material shall not crack.
calculates the number of fasteners and material
This is also a serious work that should be done right:
Note: Pay particular attention to the extreme elements, they can not enter fully, then they will have to cut.This waste.Note
and length.Correctly Calculate costs.
- first step is to calculate the area of the entire ceiling.It's simple.
Length multiplied by the width.The resulting size of the area is divided by a single element, which is listed on the packaging;
- now turn to the profile.To do this, make a drawing, and we put all the elements.
carried out in parallel lines, it will be the profile that should be located at a distance of not more than 60 cm apart.This allows you to quite accurately determine the number of the profile;
- of the number of anchors should be considered as well, for a profile need one plug for every 50 tonnes, see Profile.Hedgehog to this figure must be added 10%, and then we will get the right amount;
It's probably all.Once again I say, correctly counted waste.
To start, take the whole number of panels, the ones that will completely, the remainder should be attributed to the waste.
installation PVC panels
installation PVC panels (sm.Montazh PVC panels to the ceiling from A to Z) can make almost anyone with his own hands and without special skills.In this regard, the most important thing is the sequence of work and do not rush.
must be performed correctly counting.
Warning: Mounting can be performed on metal profiles and wooden beams.If you choose the second option, then you should apply the elements of the cross-section of 50 mm.
bring them to the place of work in advance.And treated with antiseptics, which are in the retail trade.This will extend the life of the material and avoid the formation of mold and mildew.
This should be done at least one day before the start of reference works.The material to be processed a couple of times and we should not forget that it will take time for it to dry completely.
fundamentally mount on any of the elements is different.The scheme works the same way.
Mounting ceiling plastic begins with the installation frame. This is the first stage.
If the job does not execute correctly, then it may disrupt the configuration of the plane, all the elements are mounted on the frame it.
Before the start of reference works take the wiring diagram in the room.It can not hurt.
If the scheme is not present, then buy a retail unit and determine the placement of the wires.
Then apply these lines on the ceiling and walls.There can not be drilled.So
- find the lowest corner of the room.Put a mark in pencil.We add
thickness profile or timber.By the way, if you attach the insulation then start from its thickness and must not be forgotten that it should not be deformed during installation.Make
even for him the order of one cm gap. Gaugeable and set the mark;
- Next we need to move this to the size of the other walls.To do this, use the hydraulic level.
With his help you will be able to do it efficiently.He is in retail or you can do it yourself.Portable size;
- must now connect all the markers.To do this it is best to use nylon thread.
With it you can quite accurately discourage this size.Slugger;
- Now we have a whole line of fixing the ceiling;
- take measurements of lines around the perimeter of the room.We cut timber in this size.Cut off;
- Now we need to fix it.If the wall is made of wood, then it will be enough to carry out the connection with screws.
If the plane of concrete or brick, then why not apply the punch.The connection is done with dowels;
Caution: do not buy the dowels included.To do this, take the pacifiers and buy them separately screws.
they should just take a couple of mm.Most of the plastic section.It is this compound gives the desired rigidity and tightened.
- now begin to make a cross-fixation.Cut the profile or a bar to the desired size and make the connection as described above.
Just it should be to make the right calculation.Do not forget that the plastic should not be located on the weight and the connection must be carried out on a bar.
So all correctly calculated.Bruce has to be fixed at a distance of not more than 70 cm;
- Another point.All the elements must be located in the same plane.
To do this it is best to pull the fishing line between the edges of the frame.And it has to adjust the plane of the ceiling.
Adjustments should be made spacers in a wooden structure and crabs in the application of metal profile.
After installing the frame we need to determine the installation of lighting .To this must be purchased and the junction box.
Just contemplate and batteries.If you use the energy-saving lamps, then you have to think about the step-down transformer.
And remember, these parts must be available.Lighting can fail and you will have to fix the damage.So
- Determine the place of connection and disconnect the power supply line.Fasten the junction box;
- Now put a mark on the ceiling, which will be attached fixtures;
- connect the cable and fixed to the ceiling;
Caution: When the cable should pay attention to the conductor cross-section.Add up the amount of nutrients and then buy the cable.It should
power consumption to be above 20-five percent.That is, let the power supply.
- bed.We consolidated and now connect the lighting and look at the correct light distribution.
now have the opportunity to change everything and fix bugs.After mounting the ceiling will make it quite difficult, and sometimes impossible;
- left in place to connect the cable to its length enough for the fixture.
Note: All connections are made using terminal blocks.Avoid twists.They do not give a reliable connection.
Remember, if you come from the wiring system, then we need to troubleshoot and it will be difficult to get to the wire.So do all the quality and use reliable materials.
If the lighting is correct, then we can again turn off the power on the line and do the job on.
installation of plastic panels
After correct mounting frame you can start to install the panels (see: How do self-install panels on the ceiling).It is not a difficult job, but it requires attention and proper labeling.
Photo and video you can see below, but now we will tell on how to perform this work.
- Take the first lane and cut it into desired size.You can use a simple hacksaw;
- One side should start in the U-shaped profile.Sometimes advised to trim the clip, it's easier to install the profile, but it should look at the place.
established band in the right place it should consolidate, for this use screws or clips.
Warning: Never cut the panels butt.You should always do a gap about five mm.
This will avoid many problems later.
- crop the next strip, as described earlier, and are putting inclined to zamu.So it is evenly distributed over the entire length.Next
pressed tightly against the second side and make easy screw fastening;
Caution: Do not bend the elements in the performance of the ceiling mount.They
, if not broken, but it will be necessary to wait for an element regained its appearance.And during this time.
- In places where there is the output wires for lighting fittings proceed as follows.First, putting a bar and note placement.
Then remove the panel and note the location to install the lamp with a pencil.Crop.
This can be done using a special drill bits for that eats at retail.We put an element of the installation site.
snaps.And takes out the wire through hole;
- The main issue in this case it will be the last fixture of the panel.It is almost always included in not full.
before installing to properly calculate the mount.Rather it is parallel.
fact that the last element will be cut to length.But he must have the correct geometrical shape.Therefore
fixture last detail is entirely dependent on the setting of the first.Properly make calculations;
- We put the last panel and make a mark for cutting.We cut as described earlier.
perform fixation with screws;
- perform the entire finishing the ceiling;
- Another point.Do frame so that docked panels are not carried out on the weight.
All right count and make the layout.Docking must be done quite tough;
- last step we will install ceiling moldings (sm.Plintusa ceiling, types and characteristics).Here, the compound can be performed using a conventional adhesive.
If you use a wood baseboard.Then follows Drill hole and then make obnizhenie to cap screw hidden.
And further opening to cover wood putty;
- If you used a collapsible plinth, then do not forget to buy the corner elements, with the help oh much easier to perform this element finishes;
Warning: When fastening the plinth should not forget about the cable lighting.In no event should not be pressed.
For this purpose, make a hole.Otherwise, after a short time you get a short circuit.
instructions you already have.Installation of plastic on the ceiling there is a video too.
Now it's just up to you.If you do the right layout and not to rush when performing work.
Then everything will turn out and the product will be a long time to serve his master.
