Self-assemble multilevel plasterboard easy. Enough to have a bit of experience and perform all the steps in sequence assembly. But should warn, that the lower ceiling levels are marked on the smoothed surface. Therefore, if the ceiling height in the room is insufficient for leveling plasterboard, you may have to leave the main ceiling as the top-level, pre-straightened his plastering, or filler.
Preparing the ceiling
Initially, with the ceiling need remove old paint or whitewash. If you were glued panels, they must be removed and cleaned the ceiling surface of the adhesive residue. If there was a suspended ceiling, he understands, removed all fasteners and other items. if the original curved ceiling base to be preassembled sibling ceiling.
Partitioning top level
Partitioning starts from the horizontal spacing. It uses a laser level. You can also use water, but the laser is more convenient and faster.
The device must be put at the center of the room, turn and wait until the beam rest. Next, the laser is directed alternately in the corners of the room, and made a mark on each of the converging walls.
According to the obtained risk kicking horizontal lines using paint cord. He stretched tight between the angles, then slightly pulled away from the wall and released, to produce cotton. As a result, the wall is clear trail. For horizontal base this operation must be repeated for all the walls.
Since the first level - leveling, it should be as close as possible to the main ceiling. To determine its location, you need to find the low angle, Why Gaugeable distance from the ceiling to the horizontal base. Where it is the smallest, and there will be the desired angle.
Now, to get a line of the first level of the ceiling must be:
- put results on the corner of the ceiling 4-5 cm (PP-thickness plus clearance profile 1-2 cm.);
- measure the distance from the base to the horizontal made on converging walls mark;
- postpone this distance in the other corners;
- connect the received tag, having beaten off the line masking cord.
Next, ceiling profiles identify fastening point. For this:
- Ceiling mark increments are placed along the long wall 400-600 mm. The layout should begin on the shortest wall in the room;
- is marking the second, parallel to the wall from the same side, as in the previous step;
- the resulting compound of marks, obtained by parallel lines, along which are planned suspension point increments fixing 700 mm.
Suspensions are set perpendicular to the lines using anchor-wedges.
When mounting the ceiling multilevel intermediate step between the first stack frame profiles should not exceed 400 mm, because he will be an additional burden. Besides, such a step makes it possible to install additional embedded under the mounting structure of the second tier.
The next step - the installation of ceiling profiles. They are inserted into the guide wall profile and are attached to the suspensions. To the bottom faces of all the PP-profiles are in the same horizontal plane of the fishing line can be pulled or use rail-rule. In this case, first exhibited intermediate profiles, which will serve as a Beacon. They had already aligned the remaining PP-Profile.
Perpendicularly mounted profiles crabs attached stiffeners. They are also used PP-profile. Stiffeners should be located on the site of the planned joints sheets of drywall. Necessary information, how to work correctly and quickly to the profile.
At this stage installed embedded frame profile under the second level, so how to fix it directly to the drywall can not be. Mortgages are set according to the drawing, in a pre-planned locations.
At the first tier frame is ready and it can sew gypsum boards. Thus under each splice must be frame member. by the way, important tips on how to avoid the appearance of cracks in the ceiling of GCR.
The video shows how, as the curved profile to the ceiling properly
Mounting the second and subsequent levels
From the upper deck at the height of the walls needed postponed, and fixed guide profiles. Thus it is necessary to take into account the thickness of the gypsum board.
By drawing sheets existing top-level partitioning the contour of the lower plasterboard. Along these lines are fixed in advance prepared billet PN Profile. For straight sections - just pieces of required length. For curved - profile necessary to cut and bent to the desired shape. Between the guide ribs are also set.
Now the side walls are made of the second tier box. For this drywall cut strip width required with the thickness of the GCR. These bands are fixed on the already established circuit. These free edge of the inner side are fastened with screws FN Profile, that, in turn connected to the wall to provide additional profiles.
the lower layer frame is ready. He sutured plasterboard as well as top tier.
Subsequent levels are performed by the above described sequence. Further videos show more details build two two-level ceiling of technology. In order to know how much material is required at the ceiling, use online calculator, it will help to purchase the right amount of material. Next video examples to help.
