When there is repair of apartment there is a question of equipment and the ceiling.Many people decide to decorate the ceiling in the kitchen of the panels.This design can hide the shortcomings and the grounds and hide kommunikatsii.V such a decision has its positive and negative sides.
Choosing plastic panels
The store offers a large number of species of this material, which have a variety of colors and shades.But there is a caveat, do not confuse the panel ceiling for the kitchen, with the material for the walls.
Note: Ceiling panels are much lighter than the walls.Wall panels are heavy and do not apply for the manufacture of ceiling.
panel ceiling, a brittle material and requires careful treatment.Its surface can damage the instrument and simply hand.They differ in texture, color and width.
can be glossy, matte and lacquer.You will be able to choose what is right for your decor.Before starting work we recommend to read the article Ceiling lights in
Choosing quality material will easily do the job.Not only quality products will delay the work.
- When you purchase should carefully inspect the material and pay attention to the observance of the geometry of form elements.Color should be uniform and the same .One material but different series of issue may have a different shade of the elements and the assembly plane ruin the whole look;
- have quality products must be perfectly flat and smooth surface.In the inner part panel races rely stiffeners, they should be visible from the outside of the material;
- outer wall panels should be the most rigid (thicker).Different series of panels can be produced by a different number of ribs, compare and select those in which there are more.This will increase the stiffness of the structure of the future;
- Selectively check on the quality of the connection panel.Put them in a place connections in a monolith.Pay careful attention to the lightness and the density of the compound, the presence of gaps in the grooves.Quality products connected quite easily and has no gaps;
- Simply squeeze the plastic fingers.There should be no traces and dents;
- Then check the material for bending.Fold the panel several times.It should not remain traces of bending, the panel must not crack;
plastic panels differ in production technology:
- most affordable, this panel white without pattern and finish.
- second is quite economical.Here, the image is transferred from the imaging film on the surface of the product.It is the most common and economical option;
- If the wall using different patterns and colors (marble, wood).This pattern is performed using direct printing on special equipment and higher resolution.
ceiling of plastic panels in the kitchen has its positive side:
- Low price;
- Easy to install, can execute a man without further qualification, which reduces the cost;
- Easy maintenance;
- Moisture resistance.
- durability of the structure;
- resistance to high temperatures.
kitchen ceiling panels also have their drawbacks:
- slightly inferior in design rack;
- Dense fasteners require extra ventilation between the ceiling and the panel plane.This should be done to avoid the formation of mildew.
calculation of the amount of material
before starting work to properly calculate and buy stuff.The thickness of the elements is lastikovyh to 10 mm , width of 25-59 cm .
Standard length 2,7-3 meters .Applicable components have a length of three meters.
Note: Multiply the side of the ceiling at each other and divided by the area of one panel (it is indicated on the packaging material).Be sure to add to the figures of 15%, it will go to waste.The resulting sum is rounded up to a larger value.
- makes the calculation of the metal structure.Design charts on paper.Based on that the distance between the profiles is 60 cm, calculate their number;
- Along the perimeter to be a more powerful profile UD , this should be considered when purchasing material.The rest of the profile, you can take the CD.
- screws calculate volume, taking into account all fasteners and adds 10% ..
Some replace the metal profile in the bars, but instead use the bracket screws.This speeds up the assembly process, but reduces the quality of the design.The tree will contribute to the emergence of the fungus.Or it should be treated with antifungal preservative.
- When buying fasteners must carry out the calculation on the basis of one dowel should be fastened every 50 cm-t. Profile installation.For fixing screws required to apply to a wider bonnet, their hardware is carried out every 50 cm. Plastic material (take with a stock).
- Make a calculation of the amount plinth.The perimeter of the ceiling should be divided into three (the length of the plinth).
panel ceiling in the kitchen should begin to mount, in the presence of a particular instrument
- liquid nails;
- Scissors on metal;
installation of plastic panels
After buying the materials and tools you can get to work:
Note: All installation work should be carried out at a temperature not lower than + 10 *.If the panel before delivery stored at sub-zero temperatures, they should not even unpack within 2 days.If storage is carried out at a temperature up to 10 degrees, they should lie down in a room for the installation within 12 hours.
- To attach plastic panels for the kitchen ceiling is required to install the hard profile.To do this, we do the layout using the level.Choose the lowest corner of the room.We retreat thickness design and put at risk;
- With hydraulic level transfer this point to the other wall.We should get a perfect parallel to the ground line, which runs around the perimeter of the room.Do not neglect this issue, if there is no parallel structure, the entire plane ceiling would be in the wrong position;
- With direct rail connect the mark and get the next level of the ceiling of the plane of the entire room;
- according to an embodiment of the hard line makes attaching your profile with dowels, the holes which are made using the perforator.The ceiling of the kitchen of the plastic panels is placed on them.Therefore, they require a rigid attachment;
- If you plan kitchen ceiling panels decorate lamps, it must be done prior to installation of plastic.Make all channels for posting and release the ends of the wires for powering lamps;
- now to the basic profile we should attach L-shaped profile .Ceiling panels in the kitchen will be attached to it;
- Cut the panel with a hacksaw on metal in the size of the ceiling.To carry out this work should be carefully panel ceiling in the kitchen is quite brittle material.Proper installation begins with an angle and is held toward the door;
- first panel is rigidly fixed on the profiles.A narrow shelf products inserted into the groove of bracket;
- Check correct installation.The angle attachment should ideally match the angle which is located diagonally.This can be done using cord yarn;
- next assembly takes place on the basis of children's designer.The narrow groove of the second panel is inserted in place of the previous fastener element.Is applied to the rail profile and fasten;
- panels on the ceiling for the kitchen fit well on the whole plane design.But there is one that likely will not work, it is the last.It is right to measure the width of the remaining distance and using a hacksaw to cut off the metal part of the element is not necessary and set the desired part of the strap to the wall;
- cropped plinth in size and is mounted on the liquid nails.There needs to be done right corner joints of the structure.We put a plinth in one side of the angle and hold the line on the ceiling with a pencil.The same thing is made with the other side of the angle.The line of intersection of the lines and will point trim moldings.
ceiling panels for kitchen installed simply.The hands that work can fulfill each.With proper installation of ceilings in the kitchen of the panels will not give you unnecessary problems and will last for many years.
