Thanks to the frame of the metal sheets under gisokarton, improves the quality of finishing facilitiesThanks to the frame of the metal sheets under gisokarton, improves the quality of finishing pomescheniyaObshivka walls and ceiling is not only the budget but also the very convenient option. That is why many masters prefer this material. And that such a casing was perfectly flat, used a trick - a frame made of metal sheets. With this approach, work performance technology changes and becomes a bit more complicated, but the appearance of the room becomes a solid and correct.


Metal frame for plasterboard

First, let's understand what a metal frame, and why is it needed for gypsum board. This load-bearing structure, which will be attached to the sheathing material.

In metal profiles are quite a few advantages:

  • Strength;
  • Reliability design;
  • The ability to withstand high weight;
  • Capable of continuous operation.

The important point is that the coated gypsum board (GCR) with metal frame wall becomes completely smooth even if the differences were significant.


It is for this reason, plasterboard and is the leader among the encasing material. Due to their properties and properly fitted frame, it is possible to construct an interesting design on the ceiling. For example, multilevel and irregular shapes / sizes.

In addition, such a plating device helps to make unusual and doorways. For example, in the form of an arch. 

How to avoid mistakes in the construction of the metal frame for gypsum boards

When mounting frame and plating may occur various contingencies.

Here is a list of the most common mistakes:



  • Fastening plasterboard sheet upside down;
  • Improper fixing sheets;
  • Wrong choice of the profile;
  • Improper installation frame framework;
  • Lack of hangers, leading to disruption of the frame;
  • Incorrect cutting;
  • Alignment of the bent parts of the profile.

Fixing the sheet upside down can affect not only the masking further finishing, such as dyeing. For example, moisture resistant drywall, do not set the way you want, more quickly deteriorate.

The metal profile can not be cut grinder - only with special scissors, since the incision may oplavitsya galvanization, leading to corrosionThe metal profile can not be cut grinder - only with special scissors, since the incision may oplavitsya galvanization, leading to corrosion

Here misallocation sheets during installation lead to cracks in the joints, as well as the strain profile of an incorrect load distribution. Another grand mistake - use ceiling profiles for wall. This is possible, but that's not necessary to speak about strength.

Failure to comply with mounting technology metal sheets - this is one of the reasons of damaged structures. Poor or incorrectly mounted profile probably fall off. Especially bad if this happens with the ceiling.

In the absence of such important details as suspensions, inevitably cracks. In addition, there will be a violation of the installation scheme, which also affects the strength. 

Unbend profile - it is very ungrateful. Reduced rigidity, the profile is deformed. This reduces the resistance to zero. Therefore, it is important to observe the installation of technology to design and long lasting.

It is worth noting that if you plan to trim and ceiling, and walls, the installation is necessary to start it from the ceiling. Then it will be difficult, especially in the repair of their own hands. At the points of additional loads (luster, a shelf, a large picture of) experts recommend to strengthen the framework of additional profiles and bindings.

Then you need to decide what type of metal profile is needed for frame construction:

  • PU (the profile to strengthen the corner angles);
  • Printed circuit boards (ceiling profile, which is attached to the ceiling plasterboard);
  • TNG (profile guide ceiling, which will be attached to the wall);
  • PS (rack profile, i.e. vertical, is used for wall covering);
  • PN (the profile of the guide wall, which need to be fixed to the ceiling and floor).

Sometimes it takes great length profile. Therefore, to connect two metal parts using the clutch, i.e. a connector to the PCB. And to resolve the intersection of the profiles used crabs: they reinforce the frame, connecting parts made of metal. Direct hangers attached to the wall or ceiling, and then folded along lines that are available on the product. The resulting connector is inserted into the metal profile. And they themselves hangers are mounted by means of hardware.

Lining the walls of plasterboard on metal frame

For wall cladding sheets of drywall with the installation of the metal frame required materials and tools.

Here is a list:


  • Directly GCR;
  • profiles;
  • Direct hangers;
  • Dowels and screws;
  • Drill or a hammer;
  • Screwdriver or screwdriver;
  • Adhesive paper tape;
  • Tape measure and pencil;
  • Construction level.

Particular attention should be paid to the proper fastening sheets of drywall to the frame - they should be set to true side that will facilitate further trimParticular attention should be paid to the proper fastening sheets of drywall to the frame - they should be set to true side that will facilitate further trim

The first thing you need to perform the layout for the suspensions, which should be located at a distance of 80 cm from each other. It is necessary to choose the most protruding part of the wall, and already perform calculations on it. The profile of the walls should be placed with a pitch meter. The profiles are fastened crabs, self-tapping screws and screws. In the resulting box, you can hide insulation, wires and communications.

Drywall must be cut according to the size. Then it is attached with screws. The seams have to glue paper tape. You can use the tape in a grid, but the masters recommend the use of paper is a self-adhesive tape.

Then a thin layer of putty is applied on the joints, and it can help to hide some of the recesses during installation if the sheet slightly deformed. Sutures are treated with sandpaper and then the walls may be further finishing. Embedding processing and seams must be carried out at a temperature of not less than ten degrees above zero. During installation, the humidity is normal, and is completely absent drafts.

The metal frame able to withstand practically any decoration material, even decoration in relief. However, better use of polyurethane products.

Sheathe the walls of plasterboard on a metal frame is not too difficult. In addition, all materials are affordable for almost everyone, and are commercially available in all DIY stores. It may eventually surpass all expectations - most importantly, to comply with mounting technology, because it is a guarantee of quality work.
