technology device shelves of plasterboard
If you remember the adage "measure twice, and cut it alone", then you know that before you do something,you need:
- exactly imagine how it will look;
- make the appropriate measurements;
- draw the layout of shelves and partitions.
When the circuit is ready, you can accurately calculate the necessary amount of profiles, rods, connectors, mounting materials and sheets GCR.
mounting frame to the shelves of plasterboard
shelves of plasterboard can be mounted on the stage of construction of a plasterboard wall or separately.In the first case, the general framework is set so as to form a niche, which is sheathed with plasterboard, as well as the entire wall.
second - preparing the foundation for a shelf.Make her profile, and most builders choose the profile size 50h25 mm.After partitioning walls using the level (shelves still need to be smooth) in places where you have provided mounting holes must be drilled.You can use a drill, which allows you to quickly and efficiently fix the metal frame on the wall.
If regiment designed under load, you will need:
- use a thick gypsum board (18 mm) and screws butterfly;
- as often as possible to attach the profile to the wall;
- use traverse and frame reinforcing structure.
For wall mounting profile is fixed rails, bulking frame.This transverse and longitudinal spars.Well, if they are fixed to the ceiling or the floor, and between them and the profile will be mounted on the wall of the bridge.All this reinforces the carcass structure.
Once the frame is ready, start a covering of its leaves.It can be as sheets of drywall and particle board, MDF, etc. Materials.In some cases, use glass and mirrors.But the easiest and most common option was and remains the drywall.It is attached by means of screws, screwing them into the gypsum board and a hole in the profile.The more planned load, the more you need to attach drywall to the profile.
Once the frame is ready, you need to take care of the wiring.This is done in case, if you plan a shelf with lighting.In order to fire the cable and wires conveyed in a protective sleeve.
sheathing frame plasterboard
to frame sheathe sheets will need to conduct appropriate cutting operation.First, measure the size of future shelves, carry them into sheets, cut out the necessary details.To do this, cut one layer sheet made of laid deepening breakdown, then folded the sheet in a right angle and the back side with a sharp knife cut a second layer of paper.
ends treated with sandpaper or grind electroplane.Prices are fixed to the frame spacing dyupelyami.End of the shelves are mounted in two ways:
- fasten a single sheet, which cut through the window the desired configuration;
- secure the parts taken separately.
In the latter case you should try to make it as small as possible joints.These result in such here shelves of plasterboard.Photo See below.
treatment of joints between sheets
To shelves surface and edges are perfectly smooth, it will take them further processed.For this end of the sheet is polished.On the joints need to apply a layer of putty (plaster), seal their reinforcing mesh (40 mm) and over again to process putty.When applying putty grid have the entire surface of the sheet (thickness 1-2 mm).It will also help to hide and deepening of the screws.After drying putty is applied to the last topcoat.
to corners were aesthetic, they pasted primer fillers corners.They can be galvanized, aluminum or plastic.The most durable - galvanized, but the metal can eventually corrode and rust stains tread through the finishing material.All kinds of corners to prevent the destruction and tear on the corners of the drywall.
Above we have described the most simple way to create shelves of plasterboard - it is geometrically correct design.What if you want something soft and non-standard?Drywall - a material with which it is possible and to experiment.Using thin sheets, you can create curved shelves or their elements.To create these forms will need a template.It is made of more durable materials.Prepared for installation of drywall pierced blank spiked roller with one hand.On the same side of the drywall moisturize, placed on a prepared template, fixing the ends of the workpiece.Construction is allowed to dry for a day.For smooth shape, which is fixed to the profiles by means of screws.
To do this, there are arched profiles.But you can bend a normal profile when using a grinder or tin snips to make cuts on it and bend.
Working with flowing shapes much more difficult, so start your experiments from simple to complex, and to take responsibility for the execution of the task after only a few training sessions.
use of drywall in the interior allows you to experiment not only with its design, but also the layout of the room.
With shelves can distinguish between existing space into zones in the studio apartment or a single room.You can visually make the room more volume if you can not experiment with multi-level ceilings.Decorative plasterboard shelves allow to make room stylish, beautiful and comfortable.
