Calculation of components for the suspended ceiling Armstrong: size and calculation of material, weight per 1m2

Mounting ceiling Armstrong, as well as any repair work requires the correct calculation components buy the kit for mounting the ceiling Armstrong "blindly" - albeit not very reasonable to do. If you take the parts less, then, interrupting the process technology in the heat of work, you need to go back to the store and get the necessary, although not the fact that your trip will be the last. To recruit with a reserve, it makes no sense - superfluous packing of a ceiling plate, or superfluous details of a skeleton will make nobody happy, if they, as a result, remain unactivated. To avoid unnecessary costs, you need to know how to correctly calculate all the components.

Armstrong suspended ceiling: the calculation components

Armstrong ceiling calculation is the same necessary thing as NaliComponents, tools and hands. And this calculation is not so complicated, as it may seem at first glance.

You can charge the calculation:

• To the executors of the upcoming installation;
• Suppliers of suspended ceilings.

There is one more option - online calculation on the company's website( online calculator).

Calculation of components is usually the responsibility of the contractor, but today some companies offer special online calculators on their sites

Values ​​for calculation

Suppliers of suspended ceilings, as well as an online calculator, using certain formulas, giveVery approximate calculation, which determines the consumption of the material to be used, because only three quantities are taken into account.

Namely:

1. Area in m2;
2. The size of the plates;
3. Perimeter in the meter.

These approximate figures are unlikely to satisfy the consumer. The correct calculations help to reduce the error to a minimum.

Online calculators are fairly simple to use, but the accuracy of the calculation in this case, as a rule, poor

It is believed that the most correct calculations obtained in the false ceiling mounting performers Armstrong.

The fact is that these calculations they also have to do because they are not faced with this theory, but in practice, given many of the nuances in place. By nuances, in this case, are meant partitions, columns, beams, etc. However, how many people - so many opinions. Take your decision, in any case, only you!

ceiling Armstrong size: how to calculate the most

So, what is still needed in order to determine the parameters such as the size of Armstrong ceiling?

It is necessary to calculate:

• Number of plates;
• Number of guide rails;
• The length of the parietal edge;
• Number of suspensions and dowels.

In order to correctly calculate everything, you need to make the necessary measurements, and using measurements and formulas to use some coefficients and formulas.

Accurate measurements are almost a 100% guarantee of a good result

Of course, without taking into account some of the features of the room, everything will be so accurate, but these are small details that must also be taken into account by adding a certain amount of material or accessories.

How to determine the number of plates

To determine the number of panels, the ceiling area( the S), is divided by the area of ​​one plate, and add on another plate( some, just in case, add two).

Knowing the total area of ​​the ceiling, as well as the area of ​​one plate, it is easy enough to determine the required number of

plates. For example: a ceiling of, say, 5.6 × 3, 3 is equal to an area of ​​18, 48m2, and the same plate area.

Is, say, 0, 32m2( this is true for 600x600mm slabs, although its real dimensions are 610x610mm), or multiply by 0, 74m2 if the plate format is 610x1219mm( the specified dimensions are 600x1200).

Calculation of guides

In order to calculate the guides, you need to take into account their length and a certain coefficient. So. For a profile having a length of 3, 66m, it is equal to 0.8, for guides, 1.22m long, it is 1. 55. S is the area of ​​the room, and we multiply it by a factor, and then divide by the length of the profile.

Armstrong ceiling guides are calculated using the special factor

For example: 18,48m × 0, 8: 3, 66 = 40, 39, that is.41 profile, with its length of 3, 66m, for a room with a ceiling area of ​​18, 48m.

How to calculate fasteners

In order to calculate the edge edge, which has a length of 3, 05m, you only need to measure the perimeter of the room.

In order to calculate the number of dowels and suspensions, you need to take into account another coefficient, which is 0.7-mi. Again, multiply the area of ​​the room, now, by this coefficient, we get the right number of pieces.

The calculation of fasteners is also quite simple and does not take much time

For example: 18, 48 × 0, 7 = 129, 36, that is, 130 pendants and 130 anchors.

From all the above it is clear that the calculations do not require any special knowledge, and calculation is available to everyone - everything is decided by the simplest formula and coefficient.

Suspension weight Armstrong for 1m2

The weight of the suspended ceiling per 1 m2 is an important factor. The device of a ceiling assumes use of various material of plates.

The average weight of the Armstrong ceiling is 2.5 to 8 kg / m2.Everything, of course, depends on the type of material used. The thickness of the plates can vary.

Material used:

1. Wood;
2. Metal;
3. Basalt or mineral fiber.

Due to its lightness, mineral fiber slabs can not be better suited for the ceiling Armstrong

Of course, there is no dispute about tastes. Some do not at all recognize the mineral fiber panel, preferring aluminum, others do not want to use anything other than aluminum, others prefer a mirror surface, the fourth place a bet on mineral fiber, believing that this is really what they need.

Of course, the tree looks more solid, but lightweight mineral fiber slabs will save you unnecessary trouble with installation.

The heavier the ceiling, of course, more hangers will be needed.

• Low price;
• Lightweight design will save on such an aspect as bundling;
• The pleasant appearance allows to give comfort and even some presentability to any room.

Mineral plates also benefit from their price and beautiful appearance

The appearance of mineral slabs is suitable for most consumers, as evidenced by the high sales of this material.

Additional equipment for suspended ceilings Armstrong

Perhaps, it is worth considering additional equipment for suspended ceilings Armstrong.

It would be wrong to talk about these suspended ceilings without mentioning the additional equipment without which this ceiling would not really be a modern ceiling.

Without beautiful, modern ventilation grids and lamps, there would not be that beauty, comfort and functionality. So, additional equipment:

1. Ventilation grill;
2. Ceiling lighting.

Ventilation grille The honeycomb is made of impact-resistant plastic, and is installed in Armstrong suspended ceilings without special fastening.

The main equipment for ceilings Armstrong include ventilation grilles and recessed luminaires

The parameters of this module:

• Thickness - 8 mm.
• The dimensions of the cell are 15 × 15mm.
• Overall dimensions of the grill are 595 × 595mm.

The grille module is made of white plastic( PVC).Latticed ventilation Sota not only performs its technical functions, but, importantly, looks great in the interior.

Ceiling fixtures Armstrong

Fixtures are divided:

1. Recessed ceiling. The most proven kind of luminaires, which faithfully serves the consumer for more than a decade. Reliable and durable, easy to operate.
2. Overhead Ceiling. Mounted on the ceiling surface. Most often used in small rooms: hallways, dressing rooms, storerooms, bathrooms. Their design allows such a parameter as a gap( minimum height), between the base and mounted ceiling, to make less.
3. Decorative recessed. Differ a very pompous appearance, give the room a "royal" look.
4. LED panels. The most modern and stylish kind of lighting. These ultra-thin panels are the most economical, durable( lifespan of 50000 hours),

Armstrong ceiling luminaires can be both built-in and overhead

In addition, LED lighting is also characterized by the fact that they are the least flammable, And produce very little heat. This type of lighting consumes a truly insignificant amount of electricity, and, which is also important for the comfort of operation, radiate a smooth, natural, and without flicker, light.

In conclusion, I would like to note the following. Correct calculation of the ceiling Armstrong, will save you from unnecessary problems and expenses. Of all that has been said, it is clear that calculating the ceiling is not particularly difficult, but it is absolutely necessary. Hardly anyone will be pleased with the excess components of the ceiling, which will dust for years in your garage or basement for many years. Useless things, for which money has already been paid, can not cause any other emotions, except a feeling of vexation. To avoid this, use non-regular formulas and coefficients, or ask someone else to do it for you: the seller in the store, or the direct installer.

Successes to you in repair!
