Lighthouses for plasters and methods for their installation

There is no perfect surfaces after the construction of brick and concrete structure.Any surface requires its subsequent equalization process using various techniques.Without plastering not do.
But work can not only facilitate, but also greatly simplify, make available to any beginner.

Plaster works are divided into simple, improved and high quality.
to perform simple plastering is not required to use, any other technological devices.
But to achieve improved or high-quality surface for plastering is possible only with the use of tools.

most demanded device, the so-called beacons plaster profile.

beacons for plaster walls are called special galvanized steel rails particular profile, made of steel with high corrosion resistance.

installing beacons plaster, plasterer sets the level that indicates the thickness of the plaster layer stacking, providing the required surface flatness.

The main advantage of the use of beacons is that plastering works Beacon with their own hands can accomplish a worker who does not have high qualifications.

Beacon profile
Features Beacon Profile
Available as a profile with specially shaped holes.Has L-shaped or T-shaped cross section.
length profile produced 3.0 m. The height of the shelves
have T-shaped profile is equal to 6.0 and 10.0 mm.T-shaped profile is available width 20.0 and 18.0 mm.

By Beacon Profile installation benefits include:
- low price;
- ease of use;
- to shape termoshvy preventing cracking at change of temperature;
- no need to dismantle at the end of work;
- use profile reduces the layer of plaster.

Preference should be given to high quality galvanized metal profiles with improved stiffness.

Beacon mounting profile The profiles are fastened to the surface?
profiles are established using plaster solution or screws.
For fast and productive installation of the flashing profiles for plaster professionals use special fasteners, called "Ushastik".
For mounting profile for plaster lighthouse length 3.0 meters must be installed at least 7 of the fixing points.

To install beacons plaster with your hands

Lighthouses plaster mounted on a dry, nepromerzluyu surface.
Before installing the profile with their own hands to clean the surface from paint and dirt.Deep-applied primer.This is especially true when working on the ceiling or the floor.

Option 1

  • If you plan on plastering walls on beacons without dismantling the latter:
  • measure the height of the room;
  • cut profile desired length;
  • departing from angles up to 300 mm, draw a vertical line;
  • increments smaller than the length of your existing rules, draw a vertical line across the wall;
  • on vertical lines that are near to the corners, apply a solution of plaster thickness equal to the height of beacons (step heaps of plaster choose the rate of 40 ... 50 cm, but not less than 7 points of attachment to the profile 3.0 m);
  • solution is applied with a trowel, sharply hit the surface;
  • in plaster pressed profile with simultaneous check its verticality in all planes;
  • first set profiles closest to the corners;
  • hammered nails into the not yet frozen solution at the bottom and the top of the profile;
  • when the solution hardens, between the nails at the top and bottom of the pull cords, parallel to the floor;
  • horizontal bands and vertical profiles form a plane;
  • in the space formed in the intermediate sections are set in increments of less than the length of the rules limiting cords and beacons;
  • is to apply a layer of plaster and using rules to align;
  • work starts from the bottom and going up.

extraction Option II

If you are not planning to walling beacons.This approach is recommended for the budget conscious and cost-conscious.This method is recommended for use in rooms with high humidity.
What to do:

  • Measure the dimensions of the room, you need to cut the profile of Beacon desired length;
  • on the wall of vertical lines are applied in increments of 2.0 m;
  • installation start with the profile of one of the corners;
  • first profile is pressed into cakes scribbled on the wall of the back side of the plaster solution (convex part in the solution);
  • requirements profile attachment points similar to the first embodiment;
  • desirable to strengthen immediately the next two profile by adjusting the position at the level of assistance;
  • excess extruded solution immediately removed;
  • when the solution has hardened beacons, conducted surface plastering using the techniques described in the embodiment;
  • beacons can be easily removed after application of the plaster layer and grooves smeared.

beacons using rules Option III

If you plan to plaster the walls without the use of specialized beacons.
Professional finishers, the procedure does not include the installation of specialized beacons.Look closely the proposed video.

And you can do the following:

  • departing from angles of 80 ... 100 mm, hammered screws, whose levels are set by means of the cap in the same plane;
  • hats to the perimeter stretched string, forming a rectangle;
  • increments smaller than the length of the rules drawn vertical lines and screwed screws, which hats do not go beyond the imaginary surface of the circuit;
  • solution is applied in place of the vertical lines, just covering the cap screws;
  • vertically to spray solution applied tightly usually tightly resting on the cap screws;
  • not forget rule pre-moistened with water;
  • remove excess solution with a spatula, usually it is necessary to remove sharp;
  • obtained beacons from plaster mixture;
  • superimposed on plaster on walls on beacons with their own hands.

without beacons Option IV
plaster walls with their hands without beacons.
Plaster walls without installing beacons can be, if there is no high requirements for surface flatness.

main advantages of plastering walls without beacons:
- saves plaster solution for less thin layer of its styling;
- reduced time for work related to the preparation and installation of beacons.

plastering algorithm is simple:

impose a plaster solution and excess solution removed the rule.

remain longer in the hollows of the solution, at elevations less.

Work procedure:

  • before plastering the surface of a layer of acrylic primer in using a broad brush;
  • primer should dry thoroughly;
  • plaster solution is recommended to breed in small portions until the consistency of thick cream;
  • solution should be prepared as much as you can work out for half an hour, more than a plaster solution does not live;
  • using rules align the surface, removing excess solution.

- choose one or the other option you decide plastering walls themselves, given their abilities.

The need to remove the beacons may occur when plastering the premises with high humidity.The rooms of this type is better to use the second option overlay plaster.
Option allows the use of beacons at the imposition of plaster and removing them after the solution has hardened.
In dry areas MaƧka removal is not required if you use high-quality, well-Beacon galvanized profile.
