Increasingly design projects began to use false ceiling systems with glass-fiber plates.This is due to the fact that the design not only hides the flaws of the old ceiling surface and utilities, but also design a "highlight" of the interior of the room.
first glass ceilings were installed in Germany, it began with the mid-20th century.We are lagging behind quite a while, and now want to know about these surfaces, and method of installation.
In those ancient times, the ceiling was mounted a massive wooden frame.Nowadays, this type of fastening is technically perfected and greatly facilitated.
Modern systems consist of a suspension structure, which is closed by glass-fiber plates interconnected by a hermetic seal.How to build it with his own hands - a little later.Now let's talk about the new material for us.
Fiberglass panel consists of a plurality of unidirectional glass fibers, the thickness of which does not exceed six microns.The filaments are bonded to the
fiberglass structure provides key features glass tiles:
- Absorption. The parallel layering of glass fiber plates do not reflect sound waves and absorb it, reducing the echo effect in the room.
- Moisture. material has no capillaries, so it does not absorb water.It is unique, in fact, none of the structure of natural materials can boast of such a structure.
moisture that gets into the design when cleaning or surface evaporates quickly, leaving no trace.
- Refractoriness. To further improve this property plate, finished goods is further coated with a special compound.
- dustproof.For ceiling of this material is easy to care for.
its purification is carried out using a vacuum cleaner, wash, wipe with a damp cloth with synthetic detergents.Possible mechanical cleaning if necessary.
prepared for installation
Before installing the suspended structure need to prepare surfaces that come into contact with the system: the ceiling and walls.Work as prescribed instructions, do not need to self-sufficiency.
ceiling surfaces must be free of loosely attached pieces.Coloring need to strip joints, cracks with the opening of more than one centimeter - render over.
If the installation is carried out on the rough ceiling, it must be primed, paint, seal the seams in it, treat them and eliminate surface defects significant.In zapotolochnoe space should be completed all work, and the elements of communication are well secured to protect the structure from falling, and bearing on the frame of these details.Walls are prepared similarly to the ceiling.
- Install ceiling panels of glass fiber you can use any harness.These fit frames arranged on the basis of false ceilings of gypsum board, rack, panel or any other.
main thing is that the surface is horizontal, and the cell frame were a width of about 15-24 cm. It is better to specifically look at a photo or video device fiberglass ceilings, to have an idea.
- system must be durable.This is achieved by mounting the quality and durability of the base structure.Truth is capitalized, it can not read.
- work begins with the installation of the supporting profiles.They are attached on the perimeter of the room to the walls and ceiling.
depending on the area of the ceiling frame is fixed one or two levels of attachment that improves the reliability of mounting profile design.When applied to the starting line for the basic guiding water or use a laser level.You can
conventional building, of not less than one meter, but then look before you leap.
- Next, proceed to install fiberglass boards.The glass ceiling is mounted in a cell profile, and fasten the material to the base with screws.
The situation is the same as with the FCL, but to sink the cap screws have to be careful.It is desirable for this purpose further ream the hole.
Fiberglass suspended ceiling structure are used in public buildings, hospitals, swimming pools and accommodations.
material is absolutely safe from an environmental point of view, so it can be used for decoration of children's rooms.The price for a relatively low, so this finish is widely available in the home.
Tip!From fiberglass panels is not difficult to make curved elements, integrated lighting, terrain, edges and moldings.Especially appropriate this kind of ceiling in rooms where needed peace and comfort: in recording studios, movie theaters and sports centers.
Do not be afraid to use modern materials, from the comfort of your home and the health of the residents will not be affected!
