Before making a decision about the device in the apartment ceilings, it is necessary to read the literature and consulted with experts in the field of construction.
Take into account the following considerations: Do you, after the installation of the ceiling suit, new, reduced height of the rooms, whether they fit furniture with mezzanine; there is a danger that the gap between the base and suspended ceilings appear undesirable inhabitants - insects and rodents; It does not accumulate condensate there. If these complications are unlikely or not at all improbable, then, without hesitation, get down to business.
How to install a suspended ceiling on its own
The best option would ceiling block made of plastic, and most undesirable - solid gypsum board, because it will require highly plastering and finishing works, such ceiling is afraid of damp, heavy and cumbersome. It would be easier to plaster and decorate "native" (Base) and the ceiling is not spent in vain.
When you select a block of the ceiling take account of its high performance: light weight and resistance to moisture
With regard to the block, such a ceiling, except that the above-mentioned drawbacks deprived continuous plasterboard has many advantages.
- Absolutely no afraid of dampness (not warp, does not change the color of the surface is resistant to formation of streaks and spots);
- Allows easy penetration into the gap for the replacement or repair of communications are there;
- Outwardly quite aesthetic and does not require additional finishing;
- Easy and, as a result, does not require a powerful framework;
- Repair ceiling is quite simple.
For a long time, you can list the advantages of modular plastic ceiling, but it's time to start practical work.
Suspended design allows for easy access to important utilities or equipment
Best of all, that there was a flow chart that will help pravilnomontirovat ceiling properly prioritize operations that do not allow you to skip some "transition", So you do not go back.
Flow chart, diagram, materials, fasteners can be included in the delivery of decent producers such as Volgodonsk Yukon or ARTENS Leroy Merlin.
How is fixing the ceiling
Ceiling suspension uses a service structure, called frame. This framework can be collected from a special thin-walled profile. The frame has dimensions corresponding to the dimensions of the room.
But, in addition, a large number of typical skeletons produced, from which you can choose the right.
Installation of suspended ceiling frame made with metal profiles
According to the walls of the inner contour frame is attached by dowels. To a ceiling (main) - adjustable length hangers, and which set the desired clearance between the ground and suspended ceilings.
Installation slatted frame latch blocks following technique is used:
- The assembly starts from any wall and reached the center;
- Then continues installation rails from the other wall.
With such a reception installation rails, the last installed without problems. The gaps between the slats are closed by special trims.
Spotlights - the best option for lighting strip ceilings
It should be borne in mind that the lighting direction was along the rails, otherwise the ceiling looks ugly (fence effect).
Fixing all the external components of the ceiling must be reliable.
Methods for installing the ceiling height and other important points
Methods for installing a suspended ceiling may be different from that described. If the ceiling slab (basic) is very hard and does not allow drilling under the adjustable suspensions, and enjoy building a gun is unacceptable for any reason, or it is not there, and get nowhere, the frame structure is changing, the whole frame is held only on the walls, so it We have to carry out more stringent and robust profiles or metal pipes.
For the convenience of fixing the panels (blocks) of the ceiling are welded to the pipes fasteners - millimeter steel plate measuring 5 x 5 cm at the marked locations.
The height of the false ceiling is determined by the setting of the gap between the ground and suspended ceilings. This gap must fit cartridges recessed luminaires. In most cases, it is the size of the cartridge is determined by the quantity, but sometimes you have to lower the ceiling even further in order to hide any communication: hoods, ventilation ducts or defects.
Mounting Kit for suspended ceiling MK-2
In office buildings and shopping halls have to install mounting kit MK designed for fire alarm and require large quantities plenum gap, but in these areas, this gap will not significantly affect the overall height.
Mineral wool - excellent moisture barrier material that prevents the occurrence of condensation in the false ceiling,
The room in which the installation is performed ceiling insulation requires special materials, if previously noticed soggy and musty.
Insulation may be mineral wool, or something else. In addition, insulation is good for reducing the noise in the room. Gap itself is a good absorber of sound, and together with insulation - even more so.
Repair and installation of ceiling light fixtures
Repair ceiling of plastic blocks is reduced to the partial blocks replaced when the replaced (repaired) block is "the course"Or complete disassembly (head removed), if it is somewhere at the end and reach it more difficult.
Blocks with the mechanical and thermal defects changed to new ones. If you can not get is exactly the same with the other, then change all of the blocks and collect the new composition of the drawing. This work, although time-consuming, but still doable with your hands, if you try and show willpower.
Should pay attention to the installation of lighting fixtures are correctly executed work affects the general perception of interior living space
Repair of suspended ceilings allows other ways in acute shortage of plastic building blocks, you can not change the entire block and only a fragment, but it is necessary to perform a docking fragments carefully and try to beautifully decorate the joint.
If will be installed built-in lamps, it is enough to the main frame, but if you want to hang a heavy chandelier, chandelier frame in place of the suspension it is necessary to further enhance the profile of the segments, and the need to add the number of suspensions. Install recessed luminaires produced in the holes previously made in the panels (blocks). Loop for the chandelier should be installed directly under a strong part of the framework.
All electrical wiring should be hidden in the corrugated plastic tube. Installation works of the suspended ceiling must be taken into account the rules SNIP.
Install the lamp in the ceiling (video)
Setting in a room ceiling, will be able to understand for himself, whether it was necessary to do so, some advantages will be felt immediately, some - with time, can appear some problems, which did not exist before, such as condensate digs of the gaps between the slats, or something else. It does sound insulation or conversely improved. So make your conclusions, and if more advantages, we can continue in the other rooms.
