article about plasterboard ceilings, plaster joints, we have said that the drywall is very popular during the repair and finishing works.With the drywall can not only smooth the surface of walls and ceilings in the room, but also to create different shaped elements, embodying the ideas of designers.
Figures from drywall ceiling can decorate any room and give it a unique and memorable look.
Today's topic of this article - shaped ceiling plasterboard.We will examine some techniques perform curly elements with this material in his house with his own hands.
it possible to bend the drywall?You can
Many may doubt the possibility of independent manufacture of various shapes using drywall.For drywall - a fairly dense material, well keep in shape, and at the same time, at a certain exposure, tends to break down.
So many people think that it is impossible to bend the drywall, well, or this would require special tools.
We can assure you, your fears are completely unfoun
This, of course, require the use of a particular technology, but believe me, nothing special for this is not necessary, everything is available and there in every home.But if you have never mounted false ceilings, be sure to first read the article drywall hands.
It all starts with a sketch
curly plasterboard ceilings begins with a sketch.Suppose sketch you already have.The next task is the installation of the profile, which will actually be attached sheets of drywall.
profile - the main task, stiffness
profile is a sort of skeleton of the structure.The metal from which it is made, it is easy to process.So how can such a soft material keeps the load?
The thing stiffeners, they are formed on a strip of metal in the manufacture and transform it into a durable and lightweight design element.
First Gnehm profile
clear that trying to get shaped ceiling, in addition to the drywall, you need to bend and profile.But let's take first things first.
- Once you have drawn on a sheet of paper the desired shape you need to mark the ceiling strictly on the drawing.
- used for this purpose conventional scaling.
- When the ceiling is marked, you can begin the installation of the supporting structure of the profile.
- course, during installation, the profile should take place exactly on the lines marking.
- Depending on the configuration of the decor, the profile must be bent into the inner or outer side.
- If you want to bend the profile to the outside, just make the required number of notches as shown.
- profile is fairly easy to make an incision with scissors for metal.
- These incisions allow the bend profile as shown in the figure.
- If required to bend the profile of the inner side, cuts should be made at an angle.The figure is clearly visible.
incisions performed in this manner allows the profile to bend inward.The figure shows a variant of the fold.Of course, it all depends on what kind of figured elements you want.
stiffness of the profile frame the main task
Do not worry that the profile does not get smooth bends later drywall hide this shortcoming.
But of course, the best option will be the one when the contact plasterboard and profile will be as close as possible to each other.Therefore, pay special attention to the profile.
any problems with the profile when bending should not be.If everything is done correctly and accurately, the design should get a light and rigid.
rigidity of the profile of the main component.Otherwise, poorly assembled frame lead to cracking drywall seams or total collapse of the structure.
Gnehm drywall - the first way
But most people are primarily interested in the question of bending directly drywall.
Let's deal with that.
- Firstly, I want to say, that the drywall though it looks pretty tough material, it can be bent by the attraction to a simple frame of metal - profile.
- course, do not expect that will arc quite steep, but the figures on the ceiling of plasterboard are different and smooth, relatively gentle curves are not uncommon.
- In this case it is better to use a drywall thickness as small as possible.
- attracts the drywall to the frame should be neatly and evenly.
That relatively small bend radius characteristics and thickness of a sheet of drywall.
|sheet thickness mm||bending radius mm|
|9||from 130 to 180|
Our advice- If you are using thin sheets of drywall for bends, use two layers.When this second layer must overlap the joints of the first layer.
It's the easiest way.The only condition for its implementation, this carefully and sensibly, do not rush.
Our advice - if all the sheet cracked at the worst possible moment, do not despair.Fix it completely and use a paint knife Adv crack.When you finish it will be possible to fill putty and seam will not be seen.
Gypsum + PVA - a little trick
step back a little from the topic.For the sealing of joints, using different fillers.Embroidered joints best putty plaster.
Who faced with this material, knows how it is difficult to operate because of the speed setting.It takes only a few minutes to plaster seized.
- apply a small but important trick will not use the water for breeding gypsum.
This writer first encountered this goal many years ago and was struck effect.Finisher he is working with a mixture of gypsum, slowly, for 30 - 40 minutes.
What is the trick?
- The answer is simple, instead of water for breeding gypsum mixture using PVA glue.
- This mixture allows you to work with a plaster for a long time, and the joints are obtained so strong that in the future, if we have to dismantle the drywall covering, they break with the sheets.
Gnehm drywall with water
But back to our subject - plasterboard ceilings figured (see: How do make a circle of plasterboard on the ceiling: all you need to know) with my own hands.
When there is a need to execute a steep bend of a sheet of drywall, proceed as follows.
- We need water, and an awl.
- agree fairly simple device, there will be in any sector.
- Cut a necessary element of plasterboard.
- Now it is necessary to wet .
- To do this you must first with an awl, make a large number of pinholes in the sheet on the fold.
- pinned run across the sheet.
- This awl should penetrate up to half the thickness of the sheet, and no more.
The figure shows a diagram of how to perform it.
puncture holes in any case should not be through.They can be made in several rows.It depends on the configuration of the desired item.
Our advice - in order to accurately pierce the drywall to the desired depth, set on an awl limiter.It makes it possible to their bottle caps.Just planted it on the awl to the desired depth.So much more convenient to perform multiple punctures.
- After the gypsum board is impaled in the right places, you need to water it.
- Punctures are made from the inside of the element.
- Apply water should be at a place with punctures.
- well water should soak and wet sheet.
- But at the same time it should not completely wet it and to act on the reverse side.
Our advice - understanding the situation, we recommend you proceed as follows.Take a small, useless piece of drywall and pinned him.After this wet since, as mentioned above.
As wet confirm its flexibility.Thus, you will be able to determine the time required for the normal wet sheet, you use drywall.
- moistened plasterboard element can be installed in its place.
- Fix it.
- vysohnuv in place, it will take you to the desired shape.
- If you have the ability, you can make a form on which he will bend.
- But if this is not possible, you can do without it.
As you can see, we were able to bend a sheet of drywall without the use of special, complex technologies.
Configuration ceiling plasterboard sometimes very convoluted, and the way to help you solve this problem perfectly.
time wetting - the main difficulty
The only difficulty lies in determining the precise time when you can begin to bend the sheet.So use our advice on the test piece before the start of work on the basic elements.
dare assure you in this way can be easily bent, plasterboard, the element is quite bizarre.
Not quite Gnehm - collect
There is another way, the so-called cell.It consists in the following.
- plasterboard cut into small, narrow elements.
- Then they in turn are attached to the frame profile.
- In the future, all seams must be carefully putty pre barks of a paint knife.
This method, despite its apparent simplicity, in the future when finish, takes time.
There is another way to bend a sheet of drywall.
- On one side of the sheet run perpendicular cuts.
- propylene not through, and made 2/3 of the sheet thickness.
- number of cuts depends on the configuration.
In this process, there is one subtlety.It is very difficult to perform manual hacksaw cuts.It is therefore necessary to use a circular saw blade adjustable in depth.
With this method, there is a great probability of failure in the field of cut sheet.Mounting must be performed with extreme caution.
If the seams are on the outside, their further shpaklyuyut the same way as all shpaklyuyut cutting drywall seams.
