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:

There is one more option  online calculation on the company's website( online calculator).
plates. For example: a ceiling of, say, 5.6 × 3, 3 is equal to an area of 18, 48m2, and the same plate area.
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.
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 0.7mi. Again, multiply the area of the room, now, by this coefficient, we get the right number of pieces.
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:
 Wood;
 Metal;
 Basalt or mineral fiber.
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.
Advantages of mineral slabs
The heavier the ceiling, of course, more hangers will be needed.
Advantages of mineral boards:
 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.
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:
 Ventilation grill;
 Ceiling lighting.
Ventilation grille The honeycomb is made of impactresistant plastic, and is installed in Armstrong suspended ceilings without special fastening.
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:
 Recessed ceiling. The most proven kind of luminaires, which faithfully serves the consumer for more than a decade. Reliable and durable, easy to operate.
 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.
 Decorative recessed. Differ a very pompous appearance, give the room a "royal" look.
 LED panels. The most modern and stylish kind of lighting. These ultrathin panels are the most economical, durable( lifespan of 50000 hours),
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.
Calculation of components for the suspended ceiling Armstrong( video)
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 nonregular 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!
