Qualitative suspensions for plasterboard: features, and 3 types of installation methods
Without the backing member as a suspension, not to do when building a ceiling of gipsokartonaPodvesy for GCR used to work with drywall constructions. Scope of drywall is very, very big - align, insulate the walls, make a noise insulation, hide the wires, collect the suspended ceiling. This is just what first comes to mind. Drywall is not just a "sandwich" consisting of cardboard around the edges and inside plaster. It turns out that it can be divided by a number of signs that determine where to apply and how to install gypsum board. Plasterboard are: water-resistant and fire-resistant, fire-resistant and moisture-pazogrebnevyh. By color: standard drywall is gray or blue, flame-resistant - gray and red, and moisture-resistant paint in gray and blue. The thickness of one sheet of drywall varies from 6 to 24 mm.
What is used for suspension GCR
Well, when all of the surfaces are smooth, without ridges and so-called waves, then the GCR can be mounted directly to the wall. And what if the differences in the level of the ceiling a few centimeters? Or the entire wall in the hills? Or need to hide the wires? Just to the wall is not to tie. In such cases, and apply the suspension to the GCR.
Suspensions for the FCL are:
- Straight hanger for drywall;
- Suspension with a wire rod;
- Hanger with clip.
The suspension is responsible for the rigidity and reliability of the chassis, because it is fixed thereto plasterboard
If you are unable to partition, the suspensions should be fixed after installation profiles.
Tips that will facilitate the work:
- Optimal step for fixing the suspension 60 - 80 cm.
- Installation suspensions should start from the bottom up.
- Work should only be together.
When using direct hangers, the length should be chosen depending on the degree of surface roughness.
Straight hanger for drywall and the use of the brand with a wire rod
One of the most commonly used suspension options - direct. It is used when installing a metal frame on the wall, floor and ceiling. The construction of a direct hanger looks like the letter "P", which can significantly reduce the time works. However, at the time of buying direct suspension will be in the form of a rectangular plate. Also pleasing and cost, it varies from 3 to 5 rubles apiece.
Another distinguishing feature of direct suspension, is that it can withstand loads up to 40 kg, which is what sets it apart from the rest of the suspensions. To install plasterboard structure by means of hangers, such as a ceiling, it is sufficient to use every 60 - 70 cm.
With the help of a wire hanger rod is easy to build sloping ceilings
It is important to remember that for the direct attachment of the suspension should be used only galvanized anchors as nylon may fall out, and the whole structure will collapse. Direct suspension absorbs vibration and noise, making it ideal for the residents of panel houses.
Suspensions with a wire rod most often used for the installation of multi-level structures. However, it should be remembered that the need for higher ceilings for them. But leveling suspension structure using such suspensions is much easier. And thanks to the adjustable wire rod can be raised and lowered to the desired height of the structure. The cost of this suspension ranges from 4 to 15 rubles apiece. The price depends on the thickness of the suspension.
In this suspension is a major drawback. Over time, the spring connecting the needle and the suspension is weakened, and the whole structure sags. The maximum suspension of the weight - 25 kilograms.
Convenient hangers with clips
Another type of hangers for drywall, it is a model with a clip, it is called an anchor.
As well as wire-rod suspension should not be used in rooms with low ceilings.
Among the shortcomings should be noted smaller load level. From advantages - Adjustable level of the ceiling structure. It can be considered the most convenient of the suspensions for the FCL. The cost of such a suspension can be up to 20 rubles.
Hanger with clip makes it possible to quickly and easily adjust the position of the height of the main frame profiles for gypsum board
Suspension is resistant to:
- temperature level change.
It is a reliable, modern retention mechanism. With it, the work is done much faster.
Drywall Suspension: Dimensions
When choosing hangers for drywall construction of the important role played by the size. So standard height direct suspension is 125 mm, but there are shortened versions - 75 mm. The height of the suspension on a wire rod - 500 mm and 1000, and with clip hanger - 100 mm.
Already these data will be enough to calculate with uncomplicated to understand that in rooms with low ceilings, it is best to use hangers with clip. Compare by other parameters suspensions is difficult, because they are different.
Since direct suspension has a thickness (30 mm), a width (60 mm), and the metal thickness (0.6 mm, 0.7 mm or 0.9 mm). But the suspension on a wire rod has, in height, even only one parameter - wire diameter - 6 mm. With clip hanger - width - 58 mm.
Each of the suspensions has its own peculiarities when attaching them to the ceiling, but there are some general rules:
- Work on the installation of drywall constructions should be carried out prior to decoration, but after all the wet work in the room.
- It is important to prepare the wiring, ventilation and all other attributes that are finishing work with drywall constructions should be behind them.
- And, of course, is to calculate the maximum load on hangers to structure is not collapsed.
Regardless on the type of suspension, the installation should start with the room layout
The first thing to do when installing an adjustable suspension, is put marks on the surface and drill the holes in the right places. Next - fix hangers to anchor or screws. Then - to bend down each side of the suspension.
Important! First suspensions need to be fixed and then fold it back.
The fourth thing you must do is check the fixings. To do this with an effort to pull down the mount.
How to install an adjustable suspension:
- The ceiling is necessary to drill holes for the anchor;
- Screw the rod to the ceiling;
- Set in the guide profile;
- Put on suspension for traction;
- Insert profile in suspension;
- Align profile;
- Secure suspension.
