we began to receive new materials that allowed the premises to carry out the finish to a new level.But not all were fully aware that a good view can hold only the first time with it rather short.And may harm not only the room, but also health.
At the time, many of the bathrooms finished with using plastic.But at this time they do not think about the fact that perform.Beauty glossy surface pleases the eye only during the first year.
joints Toolbox clogged with dirt, poor ventilation in the niches, which contributes to the formation of mold and mildew.For such a design require additional ventilation.
now on the market have a different kind of finish is plastic roof rack for the bathroom.On this design we want to talk about in this article, consider the advantages of disadvantages, talk about the rules of assembly.
Advantages and disadvantages
As with any type of construction, ceiling plastic rack has its pros and cons.Landlords have to wei
- rack plastic ceilings are not susceptible to moisture and dampness ;
- Reiki adjacent to each other are not sealed, it provides adequate ventilation;
- possible arrangements design the length and width premises;
- mounting option spotlights in any part of the structure;
- Low price materials;
- Can be installed on their own, without help;
- long life.
- design does not allow a showdown in a particular place;
- Reducing the height of the ceiling ;
Types of suspended ceilings
Suspended ceilings PVC can be divided by type of joints:
- Outdoor , which allows the gap between the rails up to 1.5 cm. And closes decorative profiles;
- Indoor , when the Strap come to each other;
- gapless , when the installation is made close to each other.
In suspended ceilings, use the following suspension system:
- universal mounting rail (comb traverse, stinger), the strap is made of galvanized steel and has grooves for mounting rails.Fasteners made by snapping;
- adjustable suspension, which consists of a bracket, attached to her support rail.Also this element has a rod which is mounted to the ceiling;
- In most cases, the distance from the ceiling to the plane of the structure, is 5-12 cm. It all depends on the willingness and communication that can take place on the ceiling;
- profile corner that closes the joints between the wall and the ceiling.
plastic mounting strip ceiling
to get started, prepare the required tool and read the paper self-assembly rack ceiling.
which allowed us not to be distracted during installation:
- Scissors on metal;
- Stationery knife;
- pencil or marker;
- screwdriver and a screwdriver;
- screws and dowels;
And also need to buy the ceiling elements:
- adjustable suspension;
- tire carrier or traverse;
- Profile U-shaped or angular;
- Decorative plastic slats;
After the training and the purchase of necessary materials and tools, you can start to work.
First of all, you want to properly carry out marking the ceiling.It is necessary to calculate how much you will decide to lower the ceiling and in the form of design, take into account the number of fixtures, if carried out their installation.Installation of the ceiling should be carried out when all the finishing work in the bath room are made.
- Once the decision is required around the perimeter of the premises to carry out a continuous line, which will mark boundary mounting face profile.Improper layout is all wrong plane ceiling.This work should be taken very seriously.
- To perform markup apply hydraulic level.That will help pinpoint the boundaries of fasteners.The level of this kind you can buy at retail, or do it yourself.To this should buy a rubber hose with a diameter of about one centimeter in pharmacy purchase glass tubes of the same diameter;
- Determine the lowest corner of the room.Retreat size offset ceiling (if there is communication, be sure to keep this in mind).We note the size you want.With hydraulic level mark the desired level to the other walls of the bathroom.With direct rail connect the marked points and get a line on which is mounted a plastic roof rack;
- With punch to make holes on the perimeter line, they must be carried out every 50 see .By means of these openings will be fixed to the profile.This is done with dowels and screws.After mounting DIN rail mounted profile.The sale of the tire is the same length, so, using tin snips make the desired size;
- perform mount the plinth to the wall.Pruning should be carried out under the skirting around the corner, it will hide the irregularities cropping.They have a special niche for fixing individual elements;
- After the trimming of tires at the right size, they should try to profile.After that, the profile should do desperately, that would be for them could freely fill the tire.
Remember the important thing, the tire should be placed away from the wall about 30 cm. If you do not fulfill this requirement, the further installation will cause a lot of problems.Tires must be permanently attached to the ceiling profile and not to lie on it.Their task, perform the carrier function;
Warning :.Accessories better to buy a single manufacturer.Only in this way it is perfectly possible to construct a ceiling
- Now we need to cut and assemble the panel.To do this, measure the distance from the end profile, which is located on the opposite wall to the opposite wall.Do not make the cloth longer than it should.Cranking it is likely damage to the material.The material can be cut even ordinary office knife;
- Rack mounted in the hole, which is provided in the manufacture;
- After preparing the elements and profiles should be set.Gently turn all the elements enter into the grooves face profile.Then snap fastening of the tire.When installing the next panel Attach the intermediate profile.Assembling the ceiling is made at the level of children's designer;
Although this process is not difficult, but you should listen to some advice:
- buying material from any manufacturer, rack ceiling plastic will never be fit tightly to the face profile.This disadvantage can be eliminated or minimized.You can take an intermediate profile and use it as a spring, inserted into the gap.This will make a tighter fasteners;
- should be given to the last panel.As a rule, it has to cut, do not touch the last panel, cut the penultimate.It will bend a little, but it will not be seen on the entire plane.The main thing that will be a snug fit.
Between these two rails, insert the profile.It will serve as a seal, when in cutting the panels, they are not sufficiently adjacent to each other.Install the latest profile, can be considered completed assembly.
makes a hole under the lighting
Note: All wiring along the ceiling, and connectors for lamps, must be performed before the mounting of the frame.This must be done properly and secure.
Typically, plastic suspended ceilings make out the lights.After installing the ceiling can be done and this work
first step is to mark the point of installation.Plastic Pinion ceilings can be cut with scissors.It is better to carry out, since the desired center of the hole and increase the radius of the spiral cut.Do not use metal shears, you just mess up stuff.
If done correctly, installation, construction will serve you for years to come.
