Windows polymer tiles

Placing the tiles from styrofoam.

Placing the tiles from styrofoam.

This consists in pasting the ceiling finish square, rectangular, scalloped tiles made of flexible plastic. Material is practically no weight, because is made from thin sheets of polystyrene foam. On the "face" of tiles manufacturers apply a variety of relief patterns and widgets.

Facing surface with the carcass (ceilings)

The framework is the basis of false ceilings.

The framework is the basis of false ceilings.

Suspended, ie frame ceilings are very common and separate category finishes. The key to their unflagging popularity is versatility designs.

With the help of the ceiling, you can close all overlapping defects (elevation, curvature and so forth.), As well as passing on his mask utilities.
The design of structures is diverse and allows to fit them into any interior.

Plasterboard sheets

The two-storey ceiling of GCR.

The two-storey ceiling of GCR.

Such a coating is the design of the guide (usually of metal profiles, wooden slats less) and bolted thereto by screws plates GCR. The sheets can be painted or wallpaper glue on them.

With their help, you can equip as a single-level, that is, smooth ceiling, and complex two-, three- and four-level composition. They provide an opportunity to play a variety of styles of design and implement the most daring fantasies.

Dignity, which is finishing ceilings plasterboard with their hands - speed of installation, relatively low cost and the ability to set the ceiling structure on their own.

In the method, there are drawbacks:

  1. Complex multi-level option plasterboard ceiling you do not set their own.
  2. Conventional plasterboard sheets have Humidity. If necessary, wet locations need to use gypsum plasterboard (water-resistant variety of drywall).

Cassette metal and plastic ceiling panel

Tape finish.

Tape finish.

Such a suspended ceiling frame structure is coated with a thin metal (cassette) or plastic panels.

The "face" of this fabric is very diverse. It is painted in a wide range of colors and tones can be flat and embossed patterns.

Advantages coverage are obvious:

  5. Metallic ceiling resistant to temperature changes and moisture action.

options Cons - High price of cassettes and their low capacity for sound insulation.

Pinion analogues

Decorations rack may have such unusual form.

Decorations rack may have such unusual form.

This coating consists of a frame and metal (aluminum, steel, alloys) strips. The best option - to use it in a small room. This finishing material has a wide range of colors, from golden tones to mirror tones. There are slats with embossed pattern.

The main advantages of rack ceiling:

  • ease;
  • wide range of shapes and colors;
  • the ability to install tiered options and facing arch designs;
  • the relative ease of installation;
  • thermal and moisture resistance;
  • durability.

Less options - the tendency to deformation bars.

tensile structures

Tensioner coating with photo printing.

Tensioner coating with photo printing.

Produced a ceiling covering of durable and reliable polymer films or special fabric. It has the widest range of colors and designs, including 3D images, and photo printing.

With this you can create a room atmosphere of comfort and coziness. This coating is quite expensive, but durable.

The main advantages of suspended ceilings:

  • water resistance and elasticity (when leakages ceiling just stretched fabric can detach and collect the water);
  • fire resistance;
  • high level of strength;
  • extensive decorative possibilities.

The disadvantages are the high cost, complexity and the need to install additional equipment (requires heat gun). The material does not tolerate too high (sag) and the cold air temperature (decreases its elasticity).

Choosing a way of organizing the ceiling cover, please note one important point.
Any false ceilings when installing the "stealing" of about 10-20 cm high walls.

boarded ceiling

Podshivnoy coating.

Podshivnoy coating.

The main advantage of suspended ceiling - they can be mounted directly on the ceiling (sometimes profiles, if the surface is too rough). So they steal space.

For this reason, this option is optimal for covering low-ceiling rooms. They can mask the small irregularities in the substrate. Coating may consist of plastic, wood strips, slats, panels, beams, plywood sheets, plasterboard or MDF, particleboard.

The disadvantages of suspended ceiling - failure to install lighting and communications on the cover, a considerable weight of the structures and the scarcity of design.
