Number of corners and wooden beams calculated on the perimeter of the room.Before installing the boards treated with a special lacquer for resistance to fire and moisture.Proceed directly to the installation:
- measure the distance from the ceiling to the level of the ceiling of the future wall.This distance depends on the height of fixtures to be mounted in a siding.If the lighting point, it is sufficient to indent a minimum of 4 cm. Tick pencil, take the level and conduct a horizontal line around the perimeter of the walls.It is necessary to precisely attach wooden beams.
- measured with the help of roulette on a bar the desired length, and cut with a hacksaw.With the punch to make holes in the rod at the distance of 40 cm from each other.Accordingly, obtained under the holes perforating the wall plugs.
- Plugs are inserted into holes in the walls, they dress timber and secured with screws.This creates a solid wooden frame for the future ceiling.Even if the corners of bars docked imperfectly, under the siding that will not be noticeable.
- most important stage - setting the starting profile (corners).This profile contains grooves into which the vinyl panels, and therefore the beauty of the ceiling depends on the correct attachment parts.For their fixation on the bars, you can use nails or screws.Mounted on the starting profile not only along the length of the room, but also in width.It is important to dock it in the corners, for greater certainty practice on unnecessary pieces.

- Gathering ceiling completely, proceed to attachment fixtures.
- ceiling wipe with a damp cloth to remove plaque construction debris and dust.In its final form it pleases with its purity and brilliance.
We reviewed version of filing siding ceiling, the maximum width is 3 m, ieis the length of the vinyl panels.If you have a larger room 3 meters, it is necessary to beat an additional bar in the center perpendicular to the direction of the ceiling panels.The siding is attached to it with nails, screws or using stepplera.This further enhances the timber structure to protect the ceiling from sagging.
