How to calculate the suspended Armstrong

How to calculate the ceiling Photo Today, suspended ceilings are an easy and convenient way of registration of premises.The materials from which they are made, allow to provide a partial soundproofing, ventilation and fire safety.The calculation of the ceiling in a room of regular geometric shape is easy to produce.To do this, you need to know only applied in this case, the coefficients for the used items.Perform a quick calculation of suspended ceiling systems help online calculator, it only needs to keep the floor area.

To calculate the ceiling Armstrong You will need:
- guides 3700 mm, 1200 mm, 600 mm;
- ceiling plate 600 mm x 600 mm;
- hangers.

1. Calculate the parts fixing the ceiling, given five times the design load.The allowable deflection should not exceed 1/250 of the span.Also keep in mind that between the base and suspended ceilings must be space for natural ventilation, the design should enable the care of electrical equipment and provide access to hidden communication.One of the most popular options is considered the

ceiling cassette, which consists of panels that fit into the mounting frame.The standard size items - 600 × 600, 600h100, 1200 × 1200 and 1200 × 600 mm.

2. Measure the room.Follow the drawing area of ​​the ceiling, according to the received size.Best of all, when the ceiling is closed maximum possible number of whole plates, and only if necessary, these elements are cut and put in a less prominent position.But, keep in mind that the near-wall plates have certain restrictions.The minimum width is 300 mm.If the guide length of 3.7 m and 0.6 m, then they apply a rate of 0.84 per 1 m2 of the ceiling.To - 1.2 m it will be 1.68 to 1 m2.Corner 3 m in length should be taken, taking into account the factor of 0.5 to 1 m 2, the same factor apply to suspensions.

3. Calculate the number of Armstrong panels and the like, taking advantage of drawing the ceiling.For a rectangular space, whose size is 3x5 meters, he bude so.Calculate the perimeter (3 + 5) x2 = 16 m, the area will be 3x5 = 15 m2.Considering factors guiding the major length of 3.7 m need to be: 15 x 0.84 = 12.6 m, 1.2 guides m - 15 x 1.68 = 25.2 m, 0.6 guides m - 12.6m. In fact long rails need to buy 4 pieces, 1200 mm - 18 pcs., and 600 mm -. 26 pcs.Determine the number of whole plates in the drawing, then plates with trimming.As a result, the total number of plates is equal to 42 pieces.

4. Calculate the angular profile.This phase of work is the most important.Calculate it the easiest on the perimeter.In this case it is necessary 16m profile.Its standard length is 4 m, then you need: 16: 4 = 4 pcs.Slides are in packages, their number depends on the length.For example, 3700 mm - pack of 25 pcs .;600 mm - 75 pcs.Perimeter edge 3000 mm - 30 pcs.However, retail all items can be purchased individually.
