Rack ceiling installation
In order for the ceiling to have an aesthetic appearance, you need to choose high-quality slats and follow the basic rules of installation. For work you will need: a tape measure, drill, screwdriver, pliers, scissors, screws, dowels, knife, level.
How to start? First, measure a few centimeters from the ceiling and draw a horizontal line. Fix the baseboard along this line, which performs a more decorative function, closing the joint between the wall and the slatted ceiling.
Mounting pitch must be at least 400 mm.
Then hangers are attached to the ceiling. In the supporting structure, you need to drill a hole for the anchor, which is inserted into the eye of the rod and fixed. This is a very important detail. The suspended ceiling is so called because it is mounted on hangers. The height of the ceilings in the room should be sufficient, because after installation the ceiling height will decrease by 4-7 cm. If there are low ceilings in the room, you can make an exception and do without suspensions, but this will be much more difficult.
The next step: you need to determine the direction of the rails. And the slats themselves cut to the size of the room. For this you can use scissors for metal or ordinary scissors. The length of the rails should be 3-5 cm shorter than the actual size of the ceiling.
Bearing profiles, stringers, are located on the same level, perpendicular to the rails and parallel to each other. With the help of suspensions stringers are attached to the ceiling. The level checks the horizontal position of the stringers. After that, the height is adjusted by means of adjusting springs.
The installation of the rails is usually started from the edges, after removing the protective film from the rails. Then the panels are alternately latched onto the stringers. It must be remembered that dents easily appear on the panels. Therefore, you need to work very carefully. The edge of the last rail starts up with a plinth until it stops.
When installing an open-type rack ceiling, it is decorated with a slotted profile, which is installed at the end of installation. The profile must be cut to the length of the rails and set the elementary pressing between adjacent rails.
Lamps better to install simultaneously with the ceiling.
Installation is over.
