Wood is a unique natural material, easy to handle, environmentally friendly.Thanks to modern technology there is headlining an almost unlimited range of shapes, color and texture making panels of wood.
For this reason, wooden ceiling panels could well be applied to any interior style.
frame and battens for ceiling panels
to decorate the ceiling with decorative panels, must be installed correctly support frame .It must have the flatness of the surface on which are mounted wooden ceiling panel.
Only through accurate measurements when mounting the frame will be able to align the front side panels, and the ceiling will be even without the step transitions.
frame is a conventional crate of smooth straight wooden bars or perforated metal profiles.The thickness of the bars depends on the presence of insulation for the ceiling, which are placed between the plates and bars have to be somewhat recessed in order not to speak over the bars.
other wood ceiling panels will rest on the insulation, causing the panel to bend, and the ceiling will appear wavy.
When the material for the crates to pick up, you need the perimeter close to the walls, fix the bars to be reliable support for all panels.The points of installation external surfaces of the bars shall be verified on the level.
To adjust the straightness and flatness used plates of different thicknesses , which puts at fixing bars to the ceiling.
What do I need to provide additional
- If the ceiling performs bump and pushes the bar, you must remove or bump, or a plane as to reduce the thickness of the bar serves as tubercle .As a result, it is necessary to achieve flatness trailers strictly on the level, regardless of the state of the ceiling.
error should not exceed two millimeters for every three linear meters, otherwise would be visually apparent that the ceiling made of wooden panels uneven.
- Then you need to mark a line on the ceiling, which will be attached along the inner bars.Along the lines of nasverlivayutsya holes and plugs are installed at a distance of about sixty centimeters.
applied bar, marks the point coincides with the point of placement of dowels, drill holes in them are inserted screws of appropriate length, and the bar is screwed to the ceiling in the dowels.
Note that the possible irregularities of the ceiling leveled podkladyvaniem a bar compensators, the plates of the necessary thickness, at fixing screws.To preserve the flatness of the location of the inner part of the frame is adjusted by cords stretched between the bars, set out on the perimeter.
- Bar in places where it is necessary raised pads or vice versa is made thinner, must strive to it after installing the outer surface barely touched the cord, defining the ideal position.
- Once the frame is verified and securely fastened, bolted along the perimeter molding, which can fasten angular or rectangular plinth.Moldings and ceiling panels of wood attached short screws with the washer using a screwdriver.
Fasteners wood panels
Tree excellent material for the realization of decorative fantasy.Its structure is quite diverse, allowing you to create all kinds of intricate designs, even with their own hands.
This finish helps to emphasize the stylish rooms, allows for the uniqueness and focus on any one topic.Choose a suitable project easiest photo from our site.
Wood panels are cut along the length of the room with a gap between the walls of a few millimeters, for larger rooms allowed the joints to cover trims.The first sheet panels set against a wall in the molding and fasten with screws for mounting to the side of the slot in which to insert the tongue the next panel.
To compound was most dense, the panel urged on by tapping a hammer through a wooden pad .Complete the installation of the last panel overlapping previously cut along the width of the remaining uncovered part of the ceiling.
Since the mounting bar has to be cut, the panel is mounted through pre-drilled holes for the installation of a hidden screw caps.Technological gaps near the walls closed ceiling moldings that are cut on site, set squares and snapped on the molding.
Please note that trim the ceiling with panels of wood has significant advantages over different versions of the painting.
list some of them:
- Installing wood panels does not require pre-plaster surface.
- Communication with such a finish is not necessary walling.
- Until the end of the installation of the ceiling there is the possibility of laying additional wiring.
- shrinkage of the building panels are not affected.
- ceilings finished with a permit wet cleaning.
- Finally, such ceilings are durable, eco-friendly, warm, beautiful, prestigious, and the price is acceptable.
little about the conditions of mounting panels
- In step plating important element is the creation of conditions for the ventilation gap between the ceiling and the resulting skin.For this purpose, sometimes a dual crate, filling in the longitudinal transverse slats.When performing ordinary
embodiment batten in order to be able to circulate air on rails (the base side) are made wedge-shaped grooves at a distance of approximately one meter from one another.
- Attach the panel should be in the special metal brackets that are inserted into the grooves of panels and nails attached to the crate. width should be equal to the size of the bracket slot panel.
Since not all ceilings are in the shape of a regular rectangle, you need to correctly pick up a scheme under which the panel will be installed.
- most closely should be taken to the identification and marking the location of the extreme obreshetochnyh rails.In the case where the first angle markings is performed using a template made from a piece of chipboard tailored precisely, it is possible to immediately make a layout angle of forty-five degrees below the diagonal folding panels.
This should serve as the starting point of the angle by which the eyes are the most common.
- During installation, care must be taken to ensure that the joints between the panels match the obreshetochnymi rails.Stability width interpanel seams supported by the structure mounting brackets or the use of plug-in strips of the same thickness.
performing headlining, no harm will think about in what areas and how best to put the panel lights (well, if they are low-temperature).
- need to install the lamp so that the best quality have been highlighted the most important areas and individual objects, such as paintings, various souvenirs, or decorations that are on the shelves .Supply of equipment fixtures and switches, it is desirable to establish a place where they were easily accessible.
Tip: Before you start a standalone installation of wooden ceiling panels, nice to see detailed video similar projects or to consult experts who can help you choose the right type of material (because the range of its very broad)or.Only after that draft the placement and count the number of tiles.
Despite the fact that the panels are not cheap material, it is necessary to have a small margin, because if you have to buy more, you will need to choose the appropriate color is perfect.Cladding crate should be mounted at an angle to the wall, retreating from her forty centimeters of markup using the cord.Instructions tell the correct execution of the work.
