How to make a ceiling panels in the bathroom independently

PVC Ceiling panels: the dignity of the application

To begin with, what constitutes plastic panels?On average, this plastic sheeting length 2.7 - 3 meters, a width of 25-30 cm with locks, located on the long ends, which are connected to each other (about as laminate).Installation of the panels is carried out on a wooden or metal frame, as well as finishing gypsum plasterboard.

absolute dignity:

  1. optimal price of materials required.You will need: directly panels, wooden bars of 20-40 mm and metal profiles and fasteners.
  2. ease of work.This method of lining, installation of an electric panels are feasible for those who have a desire to make the repairs yourself.
  3. quality material allows you to be very long.Unpretentious in the care and cleaning, just use plain water.
  4. Diversity clearance.PVC panels have a wide range of colors from light to dark (brown, beige, red, green, etc.) that allows you to choose the desired hue individually to your room.
  5. Ease of lighting.The panels can make the appropriate hole
    s for securing fixtures and other communications.
  6. maximum moisture resistance compared to gypsum plants and plastering coatings.
  7. ceiling in an apartment or cottage is not moldy with age or due to water inlets.Plastic steadfast to this effect, but it is easily installed, dismantled to eliminate various effects.

PVC panels for the bathroom have several drawbacks

By cons should include:

  1. limited forms that do not allow multi-level frame.
  2. Vanny ceiling, especially if the low of the plastic panels is a bit cheaper and definitely visible joint between the components.

clearly see how the panel looks like you can see in the following image.

The appearance of the classic panel

The photo shows that each sheet of PVC panels in a different reinforcing ribs, which are stacked specialist secures optimal weight which provides impeccable strength.In order to clear the panels were placed on the ceiling, they must attach devices that enlarge the image.
Mounting profiles for mounting

Species profiles for kitchen and bathroom

Ceiling connection element varies according to the method, the place of use and material:

  1. Start.The most used to close the ends of the panels and is fixed on the perimeter of the ceiling in the room.
  2. Profile «F» is needed to secure the ends during transitions between the planes.It allows aesthetically close one wall, and one that is just around the corner, to leave unchanged.
  3. connection "N" is used when it is necessary to increase the frame box and panel length.
  4. Plastic corner has the same form as the metal.It wanted to close the outer ends of the interior angles.
  5. decorative moldings for finishing and upgrading fixtures.
  6. Universal bracket (plastic), which brought together the qualities of accuracy and aesthetics, making any angle more graceful.

Common types of fasteners

Beautiful transformenny ceiling installation takes several steps, so step by step instructions provided below.

Step 1. Preparing to install PVC ceiling

Preparation includes myself counting the ceiling, collecting the necessary parts and tools, and the preparation of the ceiling surface.For the latter is sufficient to treat the surface with primer and let dry completely.As for the layout, the simplest way would be to use a water level.In a large room to build a smooth frame without aids is extremely difficult.Therefore it is necessary to note the point on the wall for the distance from the bottom point of the ceiling, so that it is not less than the thickness of the selected fastening element, which will hold the outboard frame.And from that place should be moved to the mark in all corners of the room.

How should mark the mounting surface profiles

Besides the water level, you can use any other building.The easiest way to carry out marking in the presence of already lined with ceramic tile, because this option will allow the available squares of the target layout.Spend a control line between the top row of tiles.Then, for example, using paint stretch cord thread tags to one another and Draw a line of fasteners.

Step 2: Install the profiles and hangers

next step should be to set the belt hanger with the letter "P", which are applicable for both wooden and metal frames.

Important!The distance between the suspensions can not exceed 60 cm.

Ceiling profiles according to the requirements

then around the room should be fixed UD profile, creates a metal frame, but it is necessary to lower the profile of the edge does not intersect the marked line.Between fictions maximum distance should be 50 cm, often they have provided for the opening, which can also be used.After that, under the hangers attach CD profile, but before crop it so that the walls between them and the distance was 5 mm.This will help him to take the place without deformation.

Important!The distance between the profiles to the ceiling should be 40-50 cm, which means that if you embed lights, watch for their size.

Profiles "P" is attached with screws, as well as gypsum construction.And the same screws are interconnected.

Recommended!Suspension profiles and fasteners to use plastic dowels 6 mm and 5 mm screws.In the case of shock dowels should pay attention as well and fits snugly into the dowel in the body, due to the fact that the screw, make a hole in the plastic, it can badly screwed.

Expansion bolts , screws , and hangers that should be used

Step 3: How to make your own ceiling panels: provide installation

attempting to install the ceiling panels on a metal frame.

  1. Profile «L» fasten with screws to press the puck.
  2. Spinning screws must be counting on the overlap of the fillet.

If the sheets are attached to the wooden frame, then your actions are similar.

If you have never done this before, but carefully study, you still need to remember that without practice you will be difficult to work independently.A good lesson can be a video, in which the master, having their equipment, will see how the installation is carried out in practice.

  1. Installation should begin with a transverse side.Based on this, the first sheet is cut by about 5 mm smaller than the width of the room.This is necessary to sheet, located on the ceiling, lay not warp.Cutting can be such tools: the jigsaw, Bulgarian.
  2. trimmed edges of the sheet can be cleaned and zapolirovat abrasive mesh, but with great care, so as not to damage it.
  3. Note whether the film is installed with sheets removed.If you leave them on the surface, there can be problems with its removal at the end of installation.
  4. Put the first profile in the narrow end and slightly bends the sheet, and then place the second.
  5. panel slides into the wide end.If you can not nimbly, apply a narrow spatula.
  6. secure it with screws and press the puck to the profile.In this work also need to exercise maximum accuracy, as if dropped from the screw bits, the coating can be punched and become unusable.To avoid this, it is necessary to drill a hole in the profile, and then fit the screw.
  7. second sheet is inserted just below the work is similar.Each successive panel is attached to the previous by-latch lock.

Fixing curtain sheets

to ensure the end result must be assembled sheets.Well, if your house is proportional to the room and the last page will preserve the remaining places.But if that does not happen, you need to cut plastic.

cut to the entire length of a distance to a couple of millimeters was missing from the wall and started the last sheet.So we put a plastic sheet all the way from one side to the corner, but on the other hand is free to hang out, but it is also possible to insert a bit by moving the first corner.

This forms a small gap, which is of course need something to hide.The hands do rarely succeed, because you want to masking tape.Stick a few strips across, you need to gently tighten it to the previous one.

Step 4. Checking fixtures and their installation

As for fixtures and other communications, the pre-determine their location, and the panel can be cut directly in the ceiling - the material is easy to even clerical knife.

Type of lamps and plastic sheathed ceiling

And so your actions:

  1. Choose a place where the wire receiving power for the lamp.
  2. Cut can be nearly any knife, even stationery.
  3. The cut hole put a lamp.
  4. Then fasten the wire with a lamp.
  5. Unnecessary wire threw a frame.
  6. If there are several lamps, then connect them with each other.
  7. Fasten skirtings and you're done!

If you have not yet decided, is to use this material for covering the surface, you should know that plastic panels can last from 5 to 10 years.Because they do not fade and do not form spots are durable "product".

This workshop concludes, try to take advantage of newfound advice and try to be accurate in the calculation and installation.Good luck!
