Make the ceiling with your own hands is possible
Having completed the ceiling with your own hands, you cantransform the room beyond recognition. However, in most cases, the installation of such structures are resorted to in the design of bathrooms, sanitary units and swimming pools. Their place in the construction market, such ceilings have occupied thanks to moisture resistance, long life, relatively small weight and ease of installation.In fact, the rack suspended ceiling consists of metal or plastic elements. It assumes the existence of a special system for fixing the strips made of this or that material.
In principle, to assemble the ceiling lath with your own handsquite realistic, but first you have to spend time on a trip to the store, and immediately before that you should make accurate room measurements. If the number of angles exceeds four, then it is recommended to purchase an additional reference bus, otherwise installation will hardly be possible. After buying the goods you need to make sure that all the components are present in full, otherwise it will be difficult to prove something later.
So, we make the ceiling with our own hands. And start with the markup. First of all, it is necessary to understand the level to which the construction is omitted. If it is supposed to use spotlights, then add to the desired height two or three centimeters.If there are no such bulbs, it is better not toLower the ceiling below 100 - 150 mm. Using a pencil and a level on the surface of the wall, there is a horizontal line along the entire perimeter. Further, a support tire is installed, which in most cases has a long length. If necessary, it can be cut with metal scissors. Bearing elements should be removed from the edges of the wall by about 25 to 30 centimeters.
We continue to collect the lath ceiling with our own hands. Now we need to fix the iron bars with the help of hangers. After this, you can proceed to fixing the panels to the finished structure. Metering is done from the edge of the wall to the end of the opposite profile. If the length is longer, you risk ruining the metal element. Cutting out several panels and profiles, you can start the installation. The edge of the first component is wound into a special groove of the end profile, after which it is inserted into the groove of the other and fixed in the supporting rail. After the second element, an intermediate profile is established between them.
By the way, aluminum lath ceiling is mountedby the same scheme. It should be noted that in rare cases the panel densely lies on the end profile. To correct this unpleasant situation it is possible, having inserted between them (from within) a two-centimeter interval of an intermediate profile. Particular attention will have to be given to the last panel. It can be considered luck, if it is to be fixed whole. Otherwise it will be necessary to spend a sufficient amount of time. To measure and put the last element, you need to cut the previous one by attaching an intermediate profile.
