The organization of work on the installation of a drywall profile with your own hands involves carrying out a whole series of operations related to the preparation of a reliable foundation for a plasterboard coating. To solve the problem, you can use one of the most common ways, namely frameless and frame technologies for laying gypsum boards.
Fastening the profile to the wall
Essence of frameless installation method drywall is gluing sheets of material on an absolutely smooth surface using special gypsum glue. Modern technologies for decorating decorative coatings involve the preparation of a frame construction of profiles, which is then sheathed with sheets of drywall. For the assembly of such structures, special support profiles are used, as well as fasteners of one kind or another. In construction practice, there are several types of profiles used for arranging the sheathing for drywall:
Types of profiles for drywall
In addition, to prepare the frame you will definitely need the following connecting elements:
Before the installation of the profile structures, the markings for the placement of the guides of the future frame are made, which determine the positioning of the entire structure as a whole. At the end of the marking, the guides are fastened on the supporting base with dowels, and then they are interconnected by means of self-tapping screws. It should be noted that the preparation of the gypsum board frame is carried out when arranging the structures of the following type:
Let us consider each of these framework arrangements in more detail.
Single-level suspended frame
Single-level frame design it is usually used in cases when after manufacturing a suspended ceiling it is desirable to maintain a given height of the room. During installation, the frame elements are attached to the ceiling base with the help of special hanging brackets, while the transverse guides are placed between the main profiles. As the basic guides are used standard ceiling profiles SD, fastened together with cross connectors.
The installation of the suspended part of the system begins with the installation of UD profiles along the perimeter of the room (the departure from the ceiling or the depth of the suspended structure is selected locally). Note that the correctness of the installation of DD profiles should be checked using the construction level of a particular type.
After the wall structural elements are fastened, you can proceed to the installation of the main guides, the ends of which are fixed in the recesses of the DD profiles. After their fixing, it will be possible to tackle the transverse guides, which are installed in 40-50 cm increments. The main guides are usually installed every 50-100 cm.
Two-level suspended frame
The frame is assembled under a two-level ceiling in the same way with the only difference that the transverse guides are transferred to another level. At the same time for fastening them with the main guides at the points of intersection U-shaped connectors are used. At arrangement of such ceilings sheets of gypsum cardboard keep within along the line of placement of the main guides.
In this case The installation of a drywall profile begins with installation and fixing on the walls of the directing hydrocarbons already familiar to us, forming the binding of the future partition. In the grooves of the profile strapping with a step of 30-50 cm, profiles CB (rack elements) are strictly vertically fixed.
In order to improve the sound insulation of the structure, the attachment points for all its elements are sealed with special insulating tape.The double frame is made in the same way, but two sets of profiles are installed, which are then sheathed with drywall.
