  1. of metal sheets;
  2. wood.

It is preferred to the material with which you are most familiar with and have more experience working with him.

also secrete certain types of drywall arches, depending on its form:

  • with a small bending radius;
  • with a large radius;
  • simple, using a single curve;
  • complex with several types of curves and bends;
  • symmetrical;
  • unbalanced.

Selection of the arch depends on the desired result and produced its effect.Simple interior arch made of plasterboard with their hands, ideal for the quiet and simple interior, simply replacing the door opening round.The extent of its roundness and symmetry depends on the preferences of the owner.

How to make arch of the drywall?Before we answer that question, take a look at the two types of its design.

frame of wood

The arch of the wooden bars

Arch of wooden bars

  • first step is to plan the future shape of the arch directly on drywall sheet.Its width is enough to her to draw any shape.Design of plasterboard arches, as mentioned earlier, may be the most diverse, that basically depends on its width and height.If an opening wide enough, it is best to use a large radius or a rectangular shape with rounded corners.To draw a perfect shape with the correct dimensions, you can use a compass.This does not necessarily run to the office supply store, it can be constructed from the screw, lace and pencil.The first thing on the list is drawn a rectangle corresponding to the size of the opening at the moment.Further, it should be noted in the middle of a sheet with a tape measure and mark in screw screw.The curvature of the arch and its profile is dependent on the height of the placement of the label.The higher the arch, the steeper will bend.If you want to make an arch made of plasterboard with their hands asymmetrical, it is necessary to shift the focus to the desired direction, thereby moving the arc slope.If it is necessary to draw two or more bending, several centers will be used.
  • The next step is to cut out shapes obtained.It is better and more agile to be done with the jigsaw, the sheet must be firmly fixed, so as not to cause injury to yourself or damage the material.
  • Next starts installation of drywall arches with their own hands with the help of wooden bars.First of all, they are mounted on the perimeter of the future arch.Cut drywall sheets are mounted to them with screws.
  • The next step is to fix the middle portions of the sheets by means of bars, for this need to be cut into small pieces and fixed to the sheets in the radial direction.The bottom sheet of drywall is attached already to them in the end.

metal frame arches

Metal arches frame

metal frame arches

Making arch made of plasterboard with their hands, using metal sheets differs only in the method of fixing the lower sheet.It is mounted on a profile curved in the shape of an arch.

To give the necessary curved metal sheets must be at a distance of every 10-12 cm to make cuts, while he successfully bent in both directions.

Then use screws resulting arc is fixed in the bottom of the frame to the perimeter of the structure.After this procedure, you can start to fix the walls of plasterboard to the metal arc.

But the arch design does not end with the installation, because it does not have the strength.To ensure this it is necessary to fix the cross pieces of the profile using the same screws.Their number is proportional to the length of the arch.If it closes the aperture 80 cm, it is sufficient to 5-6 pieces.

fasteners can proceed to the lower facing sheet on the next stage.But if carried out with their hands arch of the drywall, then, of course, it must be given the same shape.

manual manufacturing curved arch element

How to make an arch with their hands Plasterboard curved shape, at the same time that it turned out perfectly rounded profile?The answer to this question is quite simple and has several ways to solve:

Notching.This method consists of marking on the sheet perfectly aligned perpendicular to the edges segments.This can be accomplished using a level, ruler and pencil.With the help of mounting knife with one hand makes an incision of the upper layers of paper.This allows the sheet to bend in the opposite direction, which will provide the desired arc.

Making arch made of plasterboard with their hands using this method is quite hard work, so you need to give full attention and care.

Methods drywall bending

Technique bend drywall

second method is soaking the sheet and bend, and then the subsequent drying.But this option is suitable only for large bend radii and takes up more of your time.But it has a significant difference from the first, which is a smaller consumption of finishing compounds to obtain an ideal spherical shape.Vom help this video on sposabam bend a sheet of drywall.If you do

arch made of plasterboard with their hands by the process of getting wet, then to give the required curvature, you can use an ordinary chair or stool.And just putting on his sheet, slowly lower edge to the floor and lock in this position at the time of drying.

curved or notched sheet attached gradually from one end to the other.At this point, the installation is zakonchen.Zatem arch arch trim with the obligatory use of the building stacks and fillings.In this pre-smeared all seams and joints.
