What to do?It is advisable to immediately apply to the company, which is engaged in the installation of stretch ceiling.Even if they do not have in stock special rep / set, professionals will give good advice, what kind of makeup to look to seal a puncture in particular PVC canvas, depending on its variety.But this is true only if it is the point of damage when the minimum diameter of the hole.

somewhat easier with fabric tension ceilings - a small hole is easy to sew.The main thing - to choose the appropriate color nylon thread.All the pros and cons of fabric and PVC for ceilings discussed here.The cut

Ā«Fault" is more complicated.Methods of repair is largely determined by the location of the damaged area.

can do so - to find (buy) a small piece of coaxial (TV) cable.Moreover, again, need glue.The cable is cut so that its length is slightly greater than the size of the cut.Then coax glued to the edge (on the side "facing" the room).After drying the composition of the canvas is stretched, and a piece of cable neatly tucked behind the carrier bar (baguette).

cuts are different.If the edges ragged, they have to cut.Consequently, the parameters of damage can significantly increase.In such situations, a few wiser to change the design of the room.For example, to establish at this point pendant light, make a decorative box made of the same fabric (tissue), but a different hue (color).


All that is said above is suitable for repair at a relatively small cuts.A more significant faults have to change the suspended ceiling.
