profile applies rack profile "PS" section reminding channel.Functions uprights.Profile Size 28 × 27 mm.Import marking rack profile CW has an index.

guide profile "PN" section of similar shape acts as a guiding framework for the profile of the "SS" and the bridges between rackmount profiles.Profile dimensions 60 × 27 mm.Marking the western CD counterpart.
Corner profile "PU" secures the outer corner joints drywall sheets.
Standard Profile 3.0 and length is 6.0 m.

for mounting the frame on the wall, be sure to apply markup, drilled holes, and set anchors.Step drill holes selected from 0,4 ... 0,6 m.
markup is applied depending on the size of gypsum boards used.

  • applied a horizontal line from the top of the ceiling around the perimeter of the premises;
  • The horizontal line of the dowel-nails in increments of 0.5 ... 0.6 m mounted rail;
  • The guide grooves are inserted ceiling profiles, clipped in size;
  • between the axes of the profiles is recommended to keep away: for the water-resistant gypsum board 0.4 m to 0.6 m normal;
  • Profiles additional hangers attached with fastening step 0.5 ... 0.6 m.

About installing the ceiling in more detail to find out and see the video.Online calculator calculates not only the number of sheets of drywall required.
