mirrored ceiling rack rightfully earned the right to be considered one of the most attractive ways to trim ceiling in the common living areas, and in the halls, supermarkets, and other reception areas.Given that the whole mirror set across the plane which can then be used for mounting the mirror cassette or rack.
most widely used in construction was mirrored ceiling rack, thanks to its many positive characteristics.
The main advantages of the device and rack mirror ceilings
mirrored ceiling rack is aluminum or other material slats covered with a reflective layer, including chromium.
In addition to its superior design aesthetics mirror has a number of other advantages:
- helps visually increase the volume, which is important for small spaces;
- mirror surface has excellent reflective function that allows you to not use a lot of lighting fixtures;
- installation of lighting design in plank is made easy (sm.Svetilniki for suspended ceilings - how to do it?);
- terms of this design, there are no limitations: a mirror surface can vary in shades, texture;
- care mirrored ceiling is no different from an ordinary mirror, even in rooms with high humidity.
Mirror suspended ceilings can be made with different base as aluminum and other materials that do not corrode, so this surface is perfectly clean.In most cases, it can be used in wet areas.In addition
mirror suspended ceilings and there are mirrored panels on the ceiling, which are slightly different from the picture reechnyh.Smotrite construction of "closed" mirror strips.
device rack mirrored ceiling structure
from aluminum strip is cut rack panels of any length and bent sides, standard rails are sold length of 3-4 m. As for the width, there is a range ofmuch broader significance veers from 9 to 20 cm, but the best option that is most commonly used, the width of 10 cm.
It should be remembered that the thickness of the mirror slats also affects the design.The thicker the rack, so, consequently, the design and reliable.
Experts recommend doing rack mirrored ceilings, adhering to the optimum thickness of 0.5 mm rails for several reasons:
- shape is maintained without causing dents;
- during installation work retains its optimum shape.
If the thickness is less, there is a possibility of surface deformation and sagging.
Select rack for the mirror ceiling
Speaking of aluminum rails, they can be divided into three main types:
- with inserts.
large room with a good height often possible to observe an outdoor type of mirror suspended ceilings with a small gap.Closed Mirror suspended ceilings are mounted back to back.This is the best option for small spaces, beautiful mirrored ceiling (sm.Delaem own mirror on the ceiling) will hide all the utilities.
design with inserts resembles an open version of the same with them (thin aluminum strips covering the gap).Universal option for any room: the optimum during the operation, and easy to clean.When purchased
mirrored ceiling rack, it is recommended to pay attention to small details.Any high-quality material should have a protective coating that prevents cracks, scratches, dirt and dust.
mirror rack mount technology designs
most important stage - the right to collect the plane structure.Ultimately, the accuracy of the assembly rack ceiling depends on the end result and service life (sm.Sborka strip ceilings: how to mount correctly).
During installation, it is recommended not to use too much effort, as there is a high probability of damage to the structure.
Typically, the kit included:
- installation instructions.
All the installation work can be divided into three main stages:
- tire is attached to the rail of the suspension;
- suspension adjustable for height;
- joints between wall and ceiling closes near-wall molding.
choosing to mount mirrored ceiling rack, you should know exactly what the room allows you to give a little space rack frame.Convinced of this, you can start the installation.
For mounting you need the following materials and tools:
- construction cord;
- tin snips or a hacksaw;
- building level.
marking plane and installation frame
Once the plane is cleared, proceed to the installation of wall brackets or guide profile (P). Mirror rack design does not require thorough preparation of the ceiling plane.
to guide profile is counting, and the distance from the ceiling depends on personal preference and the choice of thermal insulation, ductwork, electrical wiring and other utilities.If you later plan to mount spotlights, all wiring is installed together with the frame, in addition, the distance from the base of the ceiling to the ceiling structure of the future must take into account the height of the cap lamps.
After placing brackets on the same line for the stringers made label.
Note: Tags are put on all the walls of the room.This must be done correctly in order to level the plane is not moved, and was rigidly fixed.
- Before you set the frame for the mirror suspended ceilings, it is best to familiarize yourself with video instruction.Work on the installation frame are made in the process sequence.
- on making markup mounted profile for future construction.Holes can be drilled right through the punch profile.Then, the holes become clogged with dowels and screws are screwed.
step between the mounting points should be 50 cm and 3-4 cm. From the front of the guide profile.
- then profiled in the wall panels are installed on marked places stringers that are not attached to the profile.Over stringers mounted hangers. as suspensions best use the clamping mechanism which is easily adjustable.
Connection material is the same as for the profile (screws and plugs).
- then suspensions and stringers connected to each other, be sure the mounting rails to be in the same horizontal plane, which is defined profile on the wall.
Tip: If the room diagonally to pull the cord, it must be easy to put all the stringers on the level, even if the installation is done by hand.
Building mirrored ceiling rack
When are assembled strip ceilings, experts do not recommend to remove the protective film to prevent damage to the surface.Mirror slats are cut directly into the film the desired length.
exempt only from the film edge slatted panels. length rails should be different from the distance between the walls of 3-4 mm.Then
rack panels are inserted into the trim profile and snap into the grooves of one of the stringers drugim.Takzhe fasten all the other mirrored slats until the ceiling area is filled.
Recessed luminaires are mounted during the installation of each rail.The holes for the fixtures cut cutter drill attachment with the corresponding diameter.
last rake unless suitable width neatly trimmed along the entire length.
- is marking the beginning of the length, and in front of her, on the waste side of the cuts in increments of 4 cm. Gradually segments breaks off unnecessary piece panel.
last panel is shorter than all the rest for ease of installation.It can also be inserted and latched.
- Insert the profile in one of its end and move into it as much as possible.Then move to the second end opposite the profile and insert by sliding rail ago.Fix it on the stringer.
Now you know how to make a rack ceiling with his hands.We do not think that this process will cause you some problems, if you can handle a drill and use the building level.
Mounting mirrored ceiling rack at first glance may seem complicated, but the detailed instructions you can install on their own, without the help of professionals.Price mirrored ceiling structure (see: How do make a mirrored ceiling) depends on the quality of the material and the ceiling area.
