OSB Ceiling: thickness variation
The best option - 1.5-2 cm. It also depends on the material from which the ceiling is made and whether or not a separate layer on top mounted heat insulating materials (or insulation, basalt fibers).
Plate itself is far from having the best performance in terms of protecting the premises from the cold. However, it is resistant to moisture. Accordingly, it is possible to stop the choice on the most subtle variations.
If the top is mounted additional finishing, the OSB-plates thickness can take even less than 0.5 centimeters, although such sale are extremely rare.
Binder ceiling OSB wood board can be performed with a thickness of 0.5 to 3 centimeters
Disadvantages thin OSB-plates:
- poor resistance to moisture;
- lowest possible critical load;
- not suitable for bathrooms, where moisture is constantly increased;
- not suitable if you plan to also mount point directional lamps or other integrable lighting equipment.
How to hem ceiling OSB own hands
Hem ceiling OSB own hands simply. As will use screws or nails liquid (may be replaced by a polyurethane adhesive) as the primary fastener. Pre-treat wood panel is not necessary.
Although, if their installation is planned to produce in the workplace, it is recommended to still perform primer treatment, to prevent the occurrence of rot, mold, insect damage binder. For these purposes, the most common approach and linseed oil, or solvents with a mixture of furniture polish. Priming is generally recommended in several layers, giving each of them to dry.
How to make a file of the ceiling, if you plan to major level to level? It is recommended to mount the metal frame made of aluminum profiles (lath) and already fastened thereon plate on desired level with a predetermined indented.
To align the profiles, which are fixed on the perimeter (ie, the profile that is already laid on the wall) is not recommended, as the permissible mechanical load on the OSB is relatively high. That is, when the width of the room in 3 or more meters with the time required to sag occurs.
For filing the ceiling slabs OSB their own hands, you will need screws or liquid nails
What all this top can be finished? The most popular options:
- liquid wallpaper;
- water-based paint;
- decorative plaster;
- gypsum panels;
- foam tiles.
And you can completely abandon the cladding and leaving open varnished OSB. However, this option is unlikely to look attractive in a residential area, not to mention the flats.
Tips on how to fix the ceiling OSB
Attach to the ceiling base plate wood OSB preferably on an adhesive substrate or by means of screws with recessed caps (minimum thickness). Most often, it is maintenance crews use liquid nails. Just before it is necessary to glue the basis of rough ceiling to completely clean the old finish. Ideal - using the steam jet. With it can be easily removed even facilitate removal, old paint on the cement.
Sheathing can be attached and by the following methods:
- a metal profile (outboard embodiment);
- to anchors or dowels;
- in decorative cornices (wood boards are simply inserted into the slots and then kept so);
Casing can be fastened to the wooden lath (considered the best one, as it allows to mount and heat-insulating layer, and the voids between the beams add soundproofing)

If the installation is at the crate, it is necessary to strengthen the boards laid perpendicular to the joists. That is, if they are kept in width, the RSD is fixed in length.
The main thing - to prevent those options when seams and batten already mounted false ceiling are the same.
Cutting boards OSB should perform only as a last resort. It would be better if the material structure is not violated
For faster installation and can be used at all:
- pressure gun;
- Construction stipler (with strong straps that penetrate to a depth of at least 1 centimeter by OSB);
- rivets, dowels.
If you use a stapler, you should keep in mind that the length of the clips must match the thickness of OSB with the addition of the 1st centimeters.

If you use decorative plaster, you should give preference to the one that belongs to a class of relief putty. These are inexpensive, and the choice of the consumer market - is very huge.
MDF panels - low-cost and highly attractive material for the headliner, which is an excellent substitute for OSB
Total, about finishing it is recommended to use the following materials (in the recommended order):
- MDF panels;
- polystyrene and derivatives thereof;
- decorative thin-layer plaster;
- coating type "multicolor";
- tensioning the film;
- liquid or non-woven wallpaper;
- water-based paint (although permitted as application of paint "rubber").
Better choice to entrust the professional designer who deals at the finish with the already established interior design a particular room.
Do OSB reliable? In principle, they are inferior in durability and plasterboard, and plastics. But with proper care (primer at least once in 5 years) they will last far more than a dozen years.
