The decoration of the ceiling plastic panels is quite in demand these days. They are most often used on balconies and in bathrooms. And this is understandable, because the PVC panels are not afraid of moisture and temperature changes, so the ceiling over time does not move, it is covered with mold and fungus, and will retain their appeal and functionality over many years.
The decoration of the ceiling panels PVC with their hands
Consider in this article how to make false ceiling from PVC panels with your own hands. For this we need, in fact, plastic panels, starting PVC profiles, aluminum profile and suspension.
Before you make a ceiling made of PVC panels with your own hands, we need to prepare and mount a skeleton. To do this in the bathroom already tiled tiles on the walls and left a gap of 10-20 cm from the ceiling, set a frame of aluminum rails. Krepit them it is possible on the tile or directly on it.
Not to spoil the finished wall, it is better to do the following: apply tile over a narrow strip of plaster to the plane of attachment of the profile coincides with the plane of the tile. Before this will certainly seal the top row of tiles with masking tape to avoid staining it and not to ruin the seams.
As soon as the plaster will seize, you can begin to mount the guides. For this we use a dowel-nails.
As hangers you can use standard straight. And if the ceiling needs to be lowered below, use hangers with clips.
To mount the guide you need with a step of 50-60 cm in the Transverse guides is not required. Approximately so should look finished frame.
Now to the guide profile need to attach starting a plastic profile with screws to press the puck. The distance between the screws is equal to 50 cm do Try not to damage the front side of the profile. In the corner of the first pass two profiles into each other, pin and then cut the corners diagonally.
Installation of PVC panels on the ceiling with his hands
Proceed directly to the ceiling covering panels PVC with their hands. Do this across the profiles, cutting the panels slightly shorter than the width of the room. Can be cut with a hacksaw, angle grinder and jigsaw. Then the edges need to be sanded. Do not forget to remove the film before installing the panels is a pretty common error.
The factory PVC panel into the starting groove of a narrow side, slightly bent and starts the second end. All that remains is to attach it with screws to press the puck to the rail. Safer to pre-drill the profile hole, to then only drive them in the screws.
Each subsequent panel is exactly the same odevaem in rails and connect them together with locks. Continue until you have mounted all the panels except the last.
With the last panel will have little trouble. Do it literally 1 mm shorter than the others. Insert it until it stops one party in the corner of the room. The other end will hang out a bit, so you can easily put a little sliding panel from the first angle. After these manipulations you will have a tiny gap between the penultimate and last panel. To compile them you can use masking tape. Glued 2 strips across the latest PVC panel and tightens to the previous – they fit perfectly back to back.
It is important at the stage of preparation for installation of ceiling made of PVC panels with their hands to consider placing lamps, make all the appropriate holes and put them in the wire. Then at the final stage you will only have to connect the lamps and the ceiling is ready!
