Size of metal profiles is selected depending on the bulk of the future designs and drywall thickness to more clearly represent the material from which the profiles are made, talk about the metal. Metal profiles made of cold rolled steel, hot galvanized subsequently. Hot galvanizing is performed to improve the chemical properties of metal corrosion protection. Structural steel is used, carbon, ordinary quality and quality, as well as Bessemer.
Profile for plasterboard: Dimensions
According to the degree of deoxidation is used semikilled boiling and quiet. Steels of metal profiles, respectively, 08ps, 08kp, 08U, St3ps, St5ps, St6sp, BSt0, BSt1, BSt2, BSt3.
By type, the profiles are divided into:
- Ceiling guides;
Labeling, metal profiles are: UD, CD, UW, CW. UD (PPN) - guide profile intended for the manufacture of a plane and fastened essentially along the contour of the future or ceiling cladding (suspended, figured). UD profiles can be without holes and with holes for fastening. CD (PP), - a bearing plane ceiling profile intended for the manufacture of the frame and main load acceptance. CD profiles are mounted on a U-shaped pendants. UW (Mo) - septum profile adapted to mount the supporting profiles, and to create in the ceiling of the second and third level. CW (SS) - rack profile design intended to impart rigidity, form a carcass.
In every major hardware store, you can find the metal profiles in all sizes and types
Arched profiles are intended to create a sophisticated design with curves that are concave and convex surface.
Uglozaschitnye (angle) profiles or reduced UE, designed to form a right angle in the finishing of plasterboard walls, to protect the outer corners from possible mechanical damage during operation.
The flashing profiles or abbreviated as PM, is used as a reference guide for the base flat surface when finishing work. Amplified profile is used for mounting of door openings in the partitions.

- Dimensions concave arched profiles operate radius from 500 mm to 5000 mm, 2600 mm, 3100 mm, 4000 mm.
- The convex arched profiles operate with dimensions 1001 mm to 5000 mm and a radius of 2600 mm, 3100 mm, 4000 mm.
Profile size for gypsum board
When buying metal profiles, carefully review the proposed product quality. The surface should be fine-sagging in the form of layers and incrustations of various grains unevenness galvanizing. There should be no trace of inflection. Metal profile should be uniform roughness, no scratches, abrasions, stains, and without disturbing the zinc coating.
If you do not know what shape and size you need a profile, before purchasing it is recommended to consult with the experts
Carefully inspect the geometrical characteristics of the metal profile, there should be no curvature, twisting around the longitudinal axis, the concavity and convexity of the profile walls, various non-planar features.
Ceiling profiles with which are formed on the ceiling frame, operate in length from 2.75 m to 4.5 m, width of 60 mm and a height of 27 mm. Guide profile for gypsum board made a width of 28 mm and a height of 27 mm. Rack wall profile for gypsum board made 50 mm width and 50 mm in height and with a width of 100 mm, 50 mm high, 75 mm wide and 50 mm high. Guide profile for gypsum board made 50 mm wide and 40 mm high. Uglozaschitny profile for gypsum board made 20x20 mm in height and 3 m in length.
Profile for GCR: Dimensions
The concave arched profiles for drywall operate with 3000 mm length and a radius of curvature of 500 mm. The convex arched profiles operate with a length of 6000 mm and 1000 mm radius of curvature. Profiles for the flashing are made of plasterboard 3000 mm in length with a cross section 22h6 mm 23h10 mm 62h6,6 mm. Corner profiles for plasterboard operate with 3000 mm length and cross section of 35x35 mm.
Uglozaschitnye profiles for gypsum board made with a length of 3000 mm, section of 25h25h0,4 mm 31h31h0,4 mm 31h31h0,5 mm.
Specific profile view has a different cross-section: at the corner, it is 35x35 mm
Reinforced profiles for plasterboard have a length of 3 m to 6 m, thickness of 2 mm, a height of the side portions 40 mm, base width of 50 mm, 75 mm and 100 mm. The guide profile is manufactured ceiling 3000 mm in length, with sizes shelves 27 mm and 35 mm back. Ceiling profile for gypsum board made with a length of 3000 mm, the shelf 27 mm height and 60 mm width of the backrest.

Direct suspension for ceiling profiles has a length of from 75 mm to 300 mm. It can withstand weight up to 40 kg!
How to extend the profile for drywall
For extension of a profile for drywall, two profiles can be connected by butt or lap. If a connection in the joint, then use special standard connectors. Fastened to the butt joint profiles and strengthen all metal screws through the holes in the ends. If the lap joint, the profiles are putting arcs to another at a depth of about 100 mm and connected by screws, and through holes at the ends.
To re-create the framework needed additional elements:
- Connectors duplex and single-level ( "crab");
- Direct suspension;
- Anchor hanger;
- Extension (longitudinal coupler);
- Corner connector.
Special extension cable allows you to connect 2 small profile in a single
duplex connector is used for securing the profiles at different levels. Sibling connector is used for fixing the profile components on one level. Direct suspension is required when installing suspended ceilings. Anchor suspension is used for connecting ceiling profile and the ceiling surface. Extension (longitudinal coupler) is used for lengthening the profiles, the ends of which are inserted into the profile with the end face by screwing the screws. Corner connector is used when installing suspended ceilings.
Do not forget to acquire a sufficient number of screws with threaded TN25 a length of 25 mm to 40 mm, depending on the plating layer. If you want to attach drywall to the furring of timber, then use the screws 35 mm long and wide pitch thread.
For elongation and direct suspension the compound used boring screws 9 mm long, 11 mm, 16 mm. The "economy" version suitable for universal screws 16 mm long and 14 mm. Also need anchors for attaching to the wall guiding profiles, anchor-wedges for securing direct and anchor hangers to the ceiling, dowels, nails to attach the frame to the supporting elements. As necessary additional items, depending on the size and complexity of the design.
