Suspensions for GCR are used in the work with gypsum board structures. The area of application of drywall is very, very extensive - align, insulate the walls, make noise insulation, hide wires, assemble a false ceiling. This is only the first thing that comes to mind. Drywall, this is not just a "sandwich" consisting of cardboard around the edges and plaster inside. It turns out that it can be divided into a number of features, on which it depends, where to apply and how to mount gypsum panels. Plasterboard sheets are: moisture resistant and fire resistant, moisture-resistant and pazogrebnevymi. By color: standard plasterboard has a gray or blue color, fireproof - gray and red, and moisture resistant paint in gray and blue. The thickness of one sheet of drywall varies from 6 to 24 mm.
For which the GKL suspension
is used. Well, when all the surfaces are smooth, without protrusions and so-called waves, then the GKL can be mounted directly to the wall. And what if the discrepancy in the ceiling level is several centimeters?Or the wall all in the mounds?Or it is necessary to hide wires?Just to the wall is no longer screwed. In such situations, a GKL suspension is used.
Suspension for GCL are:
- Direct suspension for gypsum board;
- Suspension with wire rod;
- Suspension with clamp.
is fastened to it. If there is no possibility of marking, then the suspensions should be attached after the profiles have been installed.
Tips that will make the job easier:
- The optimum step for fastening the suspension is 60 - 80 cm.
- The installation of the hangers should start from the bottom up.
- Only work together.
When using straight hangers, the length should be selected depending on the degree of unevenness of the surface.
Direct suspension for gypsum board and use of wire rod brand
One of the most commonly used suspension options is straight. It is used when installing a metal frame on the walls, floor and ceiling. The design of the direct suspension looks like the letter "P", which allows you to significantly reduce the time of work. However, at the time of purchase the direct suspension will look like a rectangular plate. Also pleases and the price, it varies from 3 to 5 rubles apiece.
Another distinctive feature of the direct suspension is that it can withstand loads of up to 40 kg, which advantageously highlights it against the background of the other suspensions. To install a gypsum board structure using such suspensions, for example, a ceiling, it is sufficient to use it every 60 to 70 cm.
It is important to remember that for fastening a direct suspensionIt is necessary to use only galvanized dowels, since nylon can fall out, and the whole structure will collapse. Direct suspension absorbs vibration and noise, which is ideal for residents of panel houses.
Wire rod suspensions are most often used to install multi-level structures. True, we must remember that they need high ceilings. But even aligning the suspension structure with the use of such suspensions is much easier. And thanks to the adjustable wire rod, it is possible to raise and lower the structure to the required height. The cost of this suspension varies from 4 to 15 rubles per piece. The price depends on the thickness of the suspension.
This suspension has a significant drawback. Over time, the spring connecting the spoke and the suspension weakens, and the whole structure sags. The maximum weight of the suspension is 25 kilograms.
Convenient suspensions withclamps
Another type of suspension for drywall, it's a model with a clamp, it's also called an anchor.
As well as a wire rod suspension, it should not be used in rooms with low ceilings.
Of the disadvantages, it should be noted a lower level of load. Of the merits - an adjustable level of ceiling construction. It can be considered the most convenient of the suspensions for GKL.The cost of such a suspension can reach 20 rubles.
Suspension is resistant to:
- To change the temperature level.
This is a reliable, modern attachment mechanism. With it, the work is much faster.
Suspension for plasterboard: dimensions
When choosing a suspension for gypsum board construction, dimensions play an important role. So the standard height of the direct suspension is 125 mm, but there are also shortened versions - 75 mm. The height of the suspension on the wire rod is 500 mm and 1000, and the suspension with a clamp is 100 mm.
Already this data is enough to understand with a simple calculation that in rooms with low ceilings it is best to use suspensions with a clamp. It is quite difficult to compare hangers by other parameters, because of their differentness.
So a straight suspension has a thickness( 30 mm), a width( 60 mm), and a metal thickness( 0.6 mm, 0.7 mm or 0.9 mm).But the wire suspension has, in addition to height, only one more parameter - the diameter of the wire - 6 mm. Suspension with clamp - width - 58 mm.
Each of the hangers has its own characteristics when attached to the ceiling, but there are several general rules:
- Installation work on gypsum boards should be done before the beginning of cosmetic repairs, but after the completion of all wet works in the room.
- It is important to prepare the wiring, ventilation and all other attributes that must be on top of them after completing the work with plasterboard structures.
- And, of course, it is necessary to calculate the maximum load on the suspension so that the structure does not collapse.
The first thing to do when installing an adjustable suspension is to mark the surface and drill the holes in the right places. Next - fix the suspensions to the anchor or screws. Then - bend down each side of the suspension.
Important!First, the hangers need to be fastened and only then bend.
The fourth thing to do is to check the reliability of the fasteners. To do this, it is necessary to pull the fastener down with a force.
Installation of adjustable suspension:
- In the ceiling, drill holes for the anchor;
- Screw the rod to the ceiling;
- Install in the profile guides;
- Fit the suspension rod;
- Insert the profile into the suspension;
- Align the profile;
- Lock the suspension.

Today, no repairs can not do without the use of gypsum boards. If you learn how to work with it correctly and choose the related materials, you will be able to create incredibly interesting designs to hide unevennesses and communications, create partitions and even separate rooms with your own hands.
