Many people want to make the suspension system on the ceiling.This is largely justified and allows perfect surface.
Suspended ceiling rack with your hands help hide all the error of the reference plane and reduce the cost of assembling the robot entire structure.Here you can view photos and videos on the topic, select the material and design.
will be given instructions to do the job.The price of the material is not so high and it can afford to practically everyone.
installation of suspended ceiling rack
Suspended rack ceilings with their hands can set almost any person who has a notion of what a hammer and screwdriver.Only this work is done in a specific sequence and in order.
should be said that is not unimportant factor is the exact markup rather the issue is among the first.On this will depend largely on the outcome.
expect material and tools
This will be the first stage in which it is not necessary to make a mistake.
Everything should be done correctly and take into account the smallest details of the design:
- primarily doing froze space and define its perimeter. It's simple, we multiply the length by the width.
should then be divided by the area the size of one panel, it is on the package, and get the number of entire parts.After that, we must calculate and waste is chopped calculate the number of elements.
But keep in mind the whole.The rest will go to waste without them will not work;
- Now, according to the length and width take U-shaped profile.That will be part of the framework and will make the mount to the wall;
- Enjoying the direction of the panels, and now we have to calculate the number of carriers combs, they are perpendicular to the panel and fixed at a meter;
Warning: Once you want to take into account and models of luminaires and lamps of their kind will depend on mounting plane, and these details must be purchased in advance.
immediately required to prepare materials and tools are:
- panels, profiles and stringers, which we have already calculated;
- All necessary details of the suspension;
- drill, hammer and screwdriver;
- hydraulic level, square, marker;
- Bulgarka, tin snips and pliers;
- dowels and screws.
Layout and skeleton
Now we mark up, and we fix the frame in place.It's quite a demanding job that must be done accurately.
This will determine the correct form of the whole structure, and it must have a regular geometric shape.
Note: Rack and pinion ceilings set their own hands after all the finishing work in the room.It is so to say the final part of the repair.
- First of all, is to place the frame in the correct plane.For this, we define it.Take the lowest corner of the room, add to it the value of the profile and set the mark;
- Now we need to move the current plane to the other.For this, we will come in handy and hydraulic level With it you can do the job more accurately.
We transfer size of other wall and put a mark;
- now connects the points with the help of cord yarn.It just beats the plane of the line.Now we are placing the ceiling plane.
Attention: We are not particularly interested in the evenness of the ceiling.Simply remove the old coating is.
And they did have damage to the plane of the fungus, then it is necessary to process the surface of antiseptics, which are commercially available.Prefer liquid deep penetration.
- Now we need to fix the U-shaped profile, and define the outline of the plane.To do this, cut the parts in the desired size.Do not make the size butt should not make a big gap on the order of one cm.
This will protect you from expanding at an elevated temperature.For work use grinders with cutting wheel or tin snips;
- After trimming perform fixation.If you have a wall made of wood, then, for this is to use self-tapping screws.
If the coating solid, made of concrete or brick, then why not make a connection with dowels.For this purpose punch.
only should say, do not apply sets of anchors.Purchase a separate plastic pacifiers and it screws with a diameter less than the cross section of the hole a couple of mm., Then you will have a quality connection that will provide the desired structural rigidity;
- makes installation hangers.You can use basically any kind.Only the most optimal will be regulated.
They allow you to set the desired height fixing elements.From the edge of the wall, they must be located at a distance of 40-cm.
And later placed with a pitch of about one meter from each other.
- now for markup for fastening stringers.They will be fixed panel.We should focus on the application of parallel lines.
To do this mark on opposite walls and repulse line using nylon cord.For convenience and proper placement should pull the line between extreme elements and it has to fix.
It will mark the correct deployment of the plane;
- makes attaching the stringers to the surface.
After installing the frame we need to take care of the lighting.Install the lamp for suspended ceilings.
- first step is to determine the point of connection threads.At this point, you need to fix the junction box.
also identified with lighting elements.If you plan to use energy-saving bulbs, and if you should decide to mount step-down transformer.
should be noted that access to these elements of life should be free.Sometimes you need to get there if something goes wrong;
- note on the ceiling fixing points of lighting fixtures;
- Now do the channels for supplying power;
Note: When buying wire must pay attention to its capacity.It should be a gap upward, never butt, take stock of power.Preference should be given to the elements with copper wire.
- makes the installation of the cable.
During the compounds is used, avoid making the connection with the help of twists.It does not give the right quality .;
- at the anchor fixtures should make the release of wires, which must not be stretched when the connection;
- Connect lighting and turn on the light.Check the light distribution.At this time, all can be corrected.But after fixing elements will make it much more difficult and sometimes not possible;
- If we are satisfied with the lighting, then switch off the power and remove the lamps.
To make the rack ceiling with his hands, we need to make a payment (sm.Potolok rack: calculation of A to Z) and right cut panels.Rarely happens when part of an even number of lattice elements.
Usually they need to cut in size.Here we have the right and place them symmetrically.
So we'll have when performing marking and think:
- detail Cut into desired size.And, do not cut more than one, there may be nuances of the installation.
why not make one element;
- After fitting insert panel stringer, where there is a special slot.The connection will be done if you hear a click;
- During mounting makes installation and lighting.In place of the lamp first try on the panel and make a mark.
Then remove the element.We put on a flat surface and make a hole using a grinder and a special crown.Home
purchase it at the right size.Then make a hole.
Do not make pressure drills sharply and strongly.Then the material is just beginning to have a snack and pull out.
Make a smooth pressure.We put the panel in place after this installation, the cable is passed.
perform mount and snaps;
- It will be necessary to strengthen and last panel, which is almost never included in full.The incision is made so that the score line was secured in the guide wall.For this
putting a note pad and a score line.Cropped using grinder;
- If the room is large enough then the need to make splice panels.This is best done by means of special inserts, they should be included. Therefore, when buying pay attention to it;
- Before installing plane to properly calculate the correct mounting panel.The question is that the last item can be cut off.
But it is better that it was incision and remained part of regular geometric shape.Therefore, you should definitely calculate the width of the panels.
may have to make a gap between the wall and, anyway, he will cover skirting.
practice, we describe all the details of installing a suspended ceiling rack.In such a construction can be used quite a lot of material, which are mounted differently.
