plastic panels have become part of our lives.Currently, they are sheathed the walls and ceilings.
Today we look at how to hem ceiling panels pvc the right thing to do is to do and what to avoid.
Such simple and complex panel
What is important first of all to know
In the beginning, you need to consider the benefits of the ceiling panels.Why in the beginning?
fact that the knowledge about the possibilities of a material allows to correctly use it in certain areas or at certain sites.
- PVC panels are plates of PVC in length from 2300 to 6000 mm.
- The width of the plates ranges from 100 to 920 mm.Plates
- bulk thickness is from 5 to 10 mm.
The most common size of a plate 2700H250H10 mm.
Speaking of thickness, we have in mind is the whole thickness of the plate.But we must understand that panel PVC is a complex structure consisting of an outer layer made of rigid PVC and interna
Along the edges of the panels have a specially made configuration, the common people called the father - my mother, and in other words, a thorn - groove.
In this separate panels form a single surface with a very tight connection.Many probably familiar with Lining, PVC panels because sometimes still referred to as plastic Lining, a similar system for the bonding of individual panels.
PVC panels are very light due to the empty interior space, but due to the stiffeners have a very good resistance to deformation.
Reliable, beautiful, practical
The name itself - the panel of PVC, said that according to the panels are not afraid of moisture .Therefore, very often they get off the premises with high humidity or surfaces exposed to precipitation as rain and snow.So
- As a type of false ceiling, with this coating can be successfully hide various communication lines.
- Another important advantage of this material is its price.Compared with the same Lining, she's just a cheap and at the same time allows you to receive a very beautiful surface that does not require additional external protection and decoration.
Easy installation - an important advantage
If we are told that they can be easy to get a beautiful and practical surface, then we just can not say about the ease of installation.
material is easy to cut and drill.When assembling these panels do not require the use of special tools.
Mounting ceiling panel - the basic rules
Indeed, a ceiling mount alone under the force of nearly every (sm.Montazh plastic panels on the ceiling with his hands), but still need to know that the apparent simplicity does not entitle neglectthis material.
Very often people when installing PVC panels to the ceiling is a gross violation that contradicts the very simple as the destination of the material can not be called.
Moreover, many of the recommendations and so-called 'instructions from the experts "on a variety of resources and" building "editions, pushing people to commit the most incredible mistakes.Do you think it's just a word?
Now we will prove an example that you're wasting somnevaetes.Naverno met many instructions on how to quickly and easily mount the PVC ceiling panels in the kitchen or bathroom, we did not mention the outdoor gazebo and so on.
Such recommendations to ease the process, it is advised to perform a framework for a ceiling of wood, and for ease and speed of installation of the main panels use the staple gun.Sure, you faced such a recommendation.
At first glance, all is true for areas with high humidity used panels are not afraid of moisture.But then the question arises, how it can be correlated with a wooden frame?
is clear that wood and moisture totally incompatible things, especially when the tree is subject to moisture, to be in a poorly ventilated space.Nonsense.
extra work with negative results
Well, wooden structure, after installation, a moisture barrier and processed very efficiently.
But we know that the panel fastening spike - one edge of the slot set in the groove of an adjacent panel, and on the other hand fixed to the frame .In this case, the recommendations suggest using a stapler.
course, very easy to shoot one edge of the panel to the wooden frame.Very simple and fast.
We will not hurry up and analyze on poryadku.Esli we use coating capable of actively resist moisture and at the same time take care of water-resistance frame, then we can use a mount?
Well, imagine that your ceiling will eventually bonded to the frame of the stapler staples.What staples staple gun?
This is a very thin metal rods bent by the letter P. The thickness of up to one millimeter, you see very little.
Questions - Answers
We question arises - how do you think how long will last the bracket under the influence of moist air?Thus the service life of the panel is more than 10 years.
answer suggests itself, this design is doomed to quick deformation and destruction.Considering the fact that the need to spend a lot of time and effort for the protection of the wooden frame against moisture, this process is nothing more than this contradicts the very purpose of the material.
Know means winning
The material itself is waterproof, but it is fixed on an unreliable frame using fasteners unable to resist moisture.This repair ala Ravshan - Dzhamshut is nothing more than a waste of time and money.
clear contradiction to which you should pay the utmost attention not to make mistakes.
Proper installation - choose the panel
Let's see how their own hands to mount the panels to the ceiling properly and most importantly safe.
begin with a correct choice of the necessary material.In the foreground are the panel.
What should pay the most attention:
- on the surface should not be dents, holes;
- surface must be flat, one-color painting;
- Quality panel should be flat over the whole length without twists and waves;
- Slight, soft curves, which straighten after fastening to the sheathing frame;
- Panel should approach each other, forming almost imperceptible tight joint.Insert one panel to another and ensure high-quality joint.
frame - very important
from the panel understood, it is the turn to choose the right material for the frame.
As we have learned, for rooms with high humidity wood can not be used, it not only rots, but also capable of large deformation of the drop in temperature and humidity.So we need metal profile.
Our advice - if you want to get high-quality and reliable frame, use a galvanized profile.This solution is the most appropriate in this situation.
Proper mounting - long operation
About attachment of the panel response may be the only one to use screws with a press - washer.
can certainly use other types of screws, but proposed by us are the most preferred:
- They will not damage the edge of the panel, and their head does not interfere with the next panel.
- These screws are both piercing and boring.
In an attachment is not affected, so pick yourself what suits you best.Personally, I prefer to use boring, for me they are more convenient, but some may prefer piercing.
Again, it does not matter.
Installation - to begin
It is time to gather the design, but before it is necessary to solve one more time.
On our website we have described many ceilings and always said that before starting work, it is desirable to draw a diagram of the ceiling of the future and resolve the issue of its functionality.
- By functionality is meant the ability to ceiling not just decorate the existing ceiling, but also the ability to hide different communication lines.
- From that you need to hide something or not, depends the final height of your ceiling.
Important - The larger the communication, the more you need the ceiling void and, accordingly, will be less than your new ceiling and vice versa.
This issue we have described in their pages, so we will not repeat.
Next, you need to perform the layout for the installation and mounting frame. The best option in this case would be to use gidrourovnya.
Our advice - if the room in which you plan to mount the ceiling is small in size, in this case, you can do without gidrourovnya.Use a normal level of construction and a large flat line or rail.
On the received marks draw a line around the perimeter at the level of the profile frame mounting.
Suspended ceilings - overall solutions
By and large installation of PVC ceiling, not much different from the other installation of suspended ceilings , be it drywall, lath, cassette, etc.
on our pages are described in some detail all the ways to implement the markup, so we will not focus on this their attention, our regular readers are already familiar with this protseduroy.Dalee line is necessary to fix the guide.
Our advice - as a guide, use the UD profile.
Someone might ask about how to mount the profile to the wall.I have to say a clear answer to this question does not exist.
In this case, it depends on the material of the walls.In any case, the fixing must be reliable and durable.
carcass is different from the other carcass suspended ceilings.All the rules remain the same.We've written about this on their pages, so we will not repeat.
who are unfamiliar with this procedure can be found in the relevant sections of our site and to read detailed instructions, supplemented by video and photo illustrations of the process entirely.
haste is not always necessary
When the frame is ready, you can proceed directly to the installation of the panel.
But before that, we want to give you another small recommendation:
- Sometimes it may happen that the frame is already assembled, and parts of the ceiling themselves just delivered.
- In this case, do not immediately start the installation.
- necessary to plastic parts have been acclimatized in the room setting.
- Leave them in a room for a day, and only after that we can proceed directly to the installation.
All or almost all of the ceilings
