When carrying out repairs in residential apartments, it is often necessary to manufacture so-called false walls, which are a fairly fashionable and common nowadays room decoration technique. Such a wall of plasterboard will completely transform the interior of the living space.
The need for such structures may also arise in the case of redevelopment of residential spaces due to the manufacture of partitions that completely imitate a real wall. With regard to the materials used in the preparation of such structures, for their arrangement most often used classic drywall.
Before you make a false wall of plasterboard, you should carefully read the requirements that apply to the order of such works. One of these requirements is the need to prepare all the necessary tools, as well as materials used in the manufacture.
Before you start the installation work you need to stock up the following consumables:
Wall profile for plasterboard
In addition, you will definitely need the following tool:
When carrying out finishing works Special attention should be paid to the preparation of surfaces that serve as the basis for decoration. In our case, such a surface is the plane of the supporting frame, assembled from standard metal profiles or wooden bars of your chosen section.
Even before the false wall takes its final form, you have to do issues related to the placement of communications used on this site. In addition (if necessary) will have to worry about the arrangement of heat and sound insulation.
In practice, two types of frames made of widely used materials can be used as the basis for plasterboard walls. First of all - it is a classic wooden crate, characterized by relative cheapness and ease of execution. The second type of frame is a rigid metal structure assembled from profiles of a given size.
Attaching the frame
Unlike a wooden scraper, which is not different special durability, the life of the metal frames is practically unlimited. In addition, most of the elements of this design are resistant to moisture and moisture, which eliminates the need for their additional protection.
Frame profiles from the profile are easily restored after mechanical damage and can always be reused. The only drawback of such structures is their price, the value of which significantly exceeds the cost of wooden analogues.
Installation of the false wall
As an example we suggest you consider the option of arranging the wall with sliding interior doors, implemented by yourself.
The marking of mounting brackets
The assembly of the metal frame for such a design should be done in the following sequence:
Assembly of the frame from the metal profile
It is clear that during the preparation of the frame it should be provided space for a sliding door hidden in the thickness of the wall to be mounted. Fastenings for the door structure must be installed in advance, which allows the subsequent adjustment of the movement of the blade along its guides.
After the frame is installed and thoroughly locked in place - you can begin to finish it. All frame cladding operations are carried out according to a known scheme in the following order:
At the final stage works on the arrangement of the false walls are done by grouting the joints formed at the junction points of the drywall blanks, as well as the removal of small irregularities that are always on the surface of the sheets. In this case, the trowel mixture is processed not only the seams, but also the caps of the self-tapping screws recessed into the material. After that, using fine-grained pelts, the surface of the future partition is carefully polished.
Thanks to this operation, you should get a perfectly flat plane that does not have any visible flaws. Upon completion of grouting and grinding, the surface prepared for finishing shall be primed manually or using a special roller, and then thoroughly puttied.
After high-quality grouting and puttying on the surface of the wall construction, even the smallest traces of seams and self-tapping screws should not remain.
Galvanized self-tapping screws
are best To get acquainted with a number of recommendations coming from people with great personal experience of working in this class. Experienced experts advise to pay attention to the following working points:
In no case do not try to save on spackling operations. Such a "savings" you noticeably reduce the service life of materials used in the finishing.
