Rack structures made of wood can be installed not only on the ceiling, but, nevertheless, like the entire layout of the room is more suitable to bath, bathroom and verandah in a rustic style.But the wood plank ceilings applicable in almost any interior space, especially housing - even classics, although modern.
What are the basic principles of installation, and that all this is a kind of decoration?Let's start with the theory and practical use.
Concepts and types
Rack wooden ceiling - is a type of suspended ceiling, in which specially prepared wooden slats are attached to the frame.The lightweight design of the ceiling underlines the major classical standards or acts as a noble and serene complement various design space.(See. Rack ceiling for the kitchen)
themselves slats made of this natural wood is absolutely any length that is a huge advantage to create a perfectly flat and smooth ceilings in various kinds pomescheniy.Material used to produce rails, can be di
Important!As you know, the modern technology of natural wood are able to create out of it anything you like, so if you want you can find for sale or to order slats and "under a rock."With the appearance of problems will arise.
Reiki can be located both along and across. According to the new technologies, they can be located even on the diagonal.
Often they are made individually to order, independent of the size of the room.Pinion wooden ceilings also act as an antiseptic for the therapeutic properties of wood (aromatherapy).
One of the main elements of such ceilings is fibroakkusticheskaya stove, made of the finest fibers.But its practice is not to install, because it increases the cost, but we are used to save money.
also to apply the desired decoration allowed the various joints between the wooden rack panels:
- without gaps - ceiling created by the classical method, in which the slats are arranged close to each other;
- open - in this embodiment, a small gap, which closed various decorative profiles between the rails;
- closed - this type of mounting rails allows you to create smooth web by closing rail edge of the preceding series.
features and benefits of wood suspended ceilings
- Wood is an environmentally friendly, natural and hypoallergenic material.Promotes beautiful design and the comfort in the living room and in offices.
- Suspended ceilings are desirable not only because of the appearance, but also due to the structure, reliable strength, relatively high level of sound insulation and the possibility of light reflection by a special painting or various types of processing.
- Wooden suspended ceilings increase the ventilation of the room, providing a flow of fresh air into the room.
- The design provides the ability to hide the shortcomings of all communications and uneven ceiling.
- Suspended ceilings made of wood have improved characteristics of durability, immune to extreme temperatures and abundant moisture level, can not be fading.
device such ceiling coverings is not overwork.If you have a minimum of experience and skills in construction work, then your hands will be easy to mount design.
For any of the types and species have a single instruction, which if you are finished with the surface in a short time with minimal effort.There are video instructions to help imagine the process step by step, clearly - does not interfere with view by referring to one of the sources in the network.
If you choose a structure with a large enough gap, have completed the "refinement" of the main ceiling surface throughout the area .This may be followed by plaster painting or pasting inconspicuous colored wallpaper, if the foundation is already flat.
to the assembly design should begin only after the complete drying of materials.
Important!Before installation, be sure to check and record all communications and wires - for lighting, ventilation, TV, alarm system and so on.Or skip engineering services through the frame, but in any case - before finishing.
You will need:
- Building level 1 meter in length;
- Roulette, preferably a length greater than the length of the ceiling;
- Water level, who have the means or opportunity - laser level;
- electric drill with a small set of drills;
- Screwdriver and curly or screwdriver bits;
- hammer weighing about 400 grams;
- Scissors for cutting thin metal sheets, small, hand.
- Additional tools - on request.
from building materials you get not only the rack ceiling wood or natural wood, and all the accessories.Total
you get a big pile of consumables:
- ceiling panels, the slats in any performance (selected for a particular project);
- Guide profiles of lightweight aluminum;
- Suspensions (you can make your own from the same alyumoprofilya);
- Support rails that traverse;
- professional fasteners - dowel-nails, screws or screws, which do not need to save, it is contraindicated.
- Your first step will be the designation of a level line around the perimeter of the room (the room).(See. Suspended ceilings in the bathroom) for the optimal use of water or a laser level to expose the zero point at the corners.
can to be sure the same zero point mark on the middle of each rack steny.Vash ceiling under the tree will be lowered by about 10-15 cm from the ground.
can all zero points banal measure of overlapping simple slide rule.Only in our environment, with great responsibility builders, floors in the rooms, as a rule, are not offset, and in this way you will get the curve ceiling.
- rails applied on the bottom line (!) Margin, the attachment points are marked with the help of the core - this is the easiest and most convenient way .You can drill right through the profile, but then have to work together to correct the position of assistant to the bar.
guides are attached to the walls of the dowel-nails.Step between the attachment locations of 40-60 cm from the edges of each individual plank is desirable to deviate by no more than 20 cm. The standard length profiles - 3 meters, the size of the material is cut with scissors for metal.
After installation of each element is controlled by the level of his position.In the joints is best done by gaps of 5 mm, and do not connect the ends of abutting profiles.
- corner joints is better to look clearly at the photos, they look to himself not to dream.
As a result, you'll have a full profile encircled the perimeter of the room.
- next step - installation of hangers .Dimensions define the main guide, choose the configuration depending on available supplies.
distance between hangers - one meter to the level it was possible to attach two adjacent elements.Each successive fixed suspension is verified by the previous level.
elements are attached to the bottom as the dowel-nails.
- Next to the guide on the perimeter and suspensions are fixed yoke, universal mounting rails.Fixing is done with screws or screws.
Accordingly, if the distance between the suspensions of less than one meter, and between the tires will be the same - it is very convenient when working with standard slats suspended ceilings.
Installation is carried out perpendicular to the direction of placing strips (lamella).The position of each bus is monitored building level.
Important!Experts recommend to first perform the installation of structures in all areas of minimal, if it is conceived project.That is, in the form of a complex compound of the ceiling hung a smaller part first, and then - big.
Similarly, the first rack ceiling set under the door or window frame, then - a vast structure.
- Reiki are mounted on the boom - the process is final, simple, but requires precision and accuracy performance.As, however, and any decorative material.
Reiki comfortably cut jigsaw, hand hacksaw with fine teeth, and even a simple building with a knife, depending on the materials from which they are made.They do not need to fasten, construction tires requires special locks, which are very easy to snap rail.
your roof rack ready to contemplate!He turned out to be an acceptable price of installation, it took not much effort, and now you can tell everyone that you have become an expert in installation of ceiling structures.
Do not forget to release the rail from the protective cover.
