Twenty years ago, in the era of perestroika, the Russian market appeared a lot of imported goods, which we had no idea.I touched it and the building industry - high quality and beautiful finishing materials from Europe immediately took a liking to our compatriots.
One of these innovations was the ceiling rack aluminum introduced by us from Germany.His solid price had no impact on demand, experts were quick to appreciate its advantages, and have adopted in finishing of offices, halls, bathrooms, kitchens.
We will help you to deal with this design, and can be, and to help make her own hands.
What rack ceiling
This kind of false ceiling is one of the most practical, attractive and easy to install structures. as a facing material used here of aluminum slats.Of course
school chemistry known to all the wonderful properties of this metal.It is light and malleable, and has good thermal conductivity, corrosion resistant.
All these qualities make metal rack ceiling practica
By way of mounting frame it is divided into two types of suspension systems - open and zakrytye.Reechnye suspended aluminum ceilings an open set with narrow gaps between panels.
space between rails can remain free or close special inserts that serve as decoration.
- This design facilitates installation of ventilated ceiling space both naturally and by setting split systems between the reference plane and the surface of the lining.
- Feature closed ceilings is that the rails are mounted flush with each other.This method creates a solid surface.
to this surface somehow diversify, sometimes mounting use different texture or color of the panel, as in the photo below.
- There are other differences concerning the size and profile of themselves paneley.Reechnye aluminum ceilings from the Italian manufacturers have rounded edges of the panels.
Germans visible part of the edges straight.From this surface and look very differently.
- when creating a custom design, shape rods can be all for nothing like .In this case the profile can be either rectangular or triangular shape, and a vertical plate.
- aluminum panels rather thin, so you need to handle them carefully to avoid damage.Sometimes it is not even used rails and a thin tape.
- average width of slats is 10 cm in cross-section, it resembles the letter "P".The required length for the customer, measure and cut into a special machine in a store that sells this product.
Generally, rack straps produce a maximum length of six meters, and for rooms with large area, they are made individually.
What is rack design
As a rule, all the details required for the installation of such structures, are included from the manufacturer, which is very convenient.No need to run around to different departments of the store, selecting the profile, area.
Also purchased separately items may simply not be joined.
- Aluminum pinion ceiling in addition to the panels, includes hangers, parietal corners, insert (only for ceiling open type), the profile and special clamping comb (otherwise stringers, beams).And, of course, as the fasteners will need screws and dowels.
try to do their job rukami.Dlya this you need a little instruction and video.
To mount the rack suspended aluminum ceiling, it is necessary to make a preliminary layout base surface using a spirit level - a pencil outline the perimeter of the surface of his future.Offset from the base slab should be no more than 12 cm.
to begin the work, you need not too many tools: hammer, screwdriver, level, measuring tape and scissors on metal.So
- Begin assembly of rack ceiling of wall corners, which are fastened by dowels.Then the ceiling hammer drill holes with a spacing of 1.2 m along the ceiling and 0.3 m across.
them with self-tapping screws are fixed suspensions which subsequently make it possible to adjust the overall level potolka.Teper suspension system is ready.
- Then turn the installation of stringers who are using screwdriver to fix the hangers.Mount comb perpendicular to the rails, on a single level with a profile.
sustain the level is very important, otherwise will suffer the appearance of the entire comb konstruktsii.Esli be shorter than you need - do not worry, it is possible and lengthen.
- further into the holes traverses inserted rod suspension and tight clamp fix it. The resulting structure is a framework for future ceiling.
- To rail can be securely attach in stringers have special cutouts representing the snap tabs.So, in turn, captures every bar, previously freed her from a protective film.
- begins to collect suspended aluminum ceiling rack on the stage of construction, when it is made and dried plaster, doors and windows are inserted.Inside of debris and dust.
Running the ceiling cables and wires is secure, otherwise they will interfere with the operation.Available only have to hang conclusions under lights.
for them to just cut rail mounted scissor holes.
types of aluminum ceilings
Ceramic part of the surface can be both monolithic and perforated (see: How do make a perforated rack ceiling yourself).In the second case, the ceiling of the closed type will have the same functional characteristics as that of the open method of installation - good ventilation.
On top of that, perforated aluminum Suspended rack ceilings have acoustic properties.Therefore, the best use for them - a room with a high noise level: where there are large concentrations of people or music should sound.
example - an exhibition hall or a theater hall. is in demand and the panel cassettes - indoors large area to work with them more easily than long strips.
- panels can be virtually any texture and color - it all depends on your preference.For rooms with high or irregular geometry, Pinion aluminum ceilings can be made of corrugated slats or tape.
looks very impressive and they make an unforgettable impression.
to create individual interior designers use a variety of techniques: alternating strips of different texture or color, creating geometric shapes by mounting rails in a different direction or podgibaniem.
Not to mention that the suspended rack aluminum ceilings are mirrored.They may be set so that the mirror surface panels any projected image.
Sometimes they cause relief or used in combination with other textures. Fantasy designers sometimes has no boundaries.
All this, of course, expensive - such exclusive designs are mostly for public premises.It could be a sports complex, and the lobby of the concert hall, and a restaurant.
Lighting strip ceiling
As with any suspension system, it is very important how well the lighting will be picked up.The glossy surface of the rails by itself is reflective, which makes the room very light, even with a small number of fixtures.
In the bathroom or kitchen rack aluminum suspension design can be illuminated with spotlights with LED or halogen lamps.If the room is small, then this coverage is enough.
for bigger rooms, you can use the large lamps, the benefit of their huge selection.Naturally, they are chosen so that the combination with the texture of the ceiling was the most harmonious.Sometimes
lighting combine, adding more and wall lights.
Tip!In any case, you need to calculate the intensity of light to the room did not turn dark.It is better to install additional lamp, which can be turned on or off as needed, than to spoil his mood, being half black in the room.
In conclusion we can say with confidence that they will do so once the ceiling in your house, you'll not regret it.Change such construction will be possible only when you want a new design.
other reason can not be, because no other material will not serve so long, delighting you and your household.
