How Does a Suspended Ceiling Work

When making a suspended ceiling, it goes through many processes. These processes, which are difficult for some, can be seen as an easy system for others. Let’s examine how to make a suspended ceiling together. First of all, let’s get to know the materials we will use in the construction of suspended ceilings:

  • Ceiling C Profile
  • Ceiling U Profile
  • Hanger Rod(Attachment)
  • Carrier Profile
  • Intermediate Apparatus
  • Trumpet Screw(2.5 , 3 cm)
  • Profile Cutting Scissors
  • dowel
  • Dowel Fixing Screw
  • Miter
  • Spirit Level
  • Drill
  • Utility Knife
    Let’s examine the construction of the suspended ceiling step by step

1 stage

  • The space where you will apply the suspended ceiling is primarily planned. Then the measurement is taken with the help of a meter.
    Provided that the gaps of the grid to be laid are not too small, it is laid evenly.
  • Apply from one end to the other, fitting the grid to be laid.
  • If there are areas with tiles, plan them so that they do not come to the tiles.
  • Leave a space of 10-15 cm from the area where you took the measure (this space is left for the location of the fixtures and tiles)
  • Cut the ceiling profiles you will use with the profile cutting scissors in accordance with the dimensions of the space you receive with the help of the meter.
  • If you have a corner protruding from your wall, cut the wall angles to those walls 1 ⁄ 2 inches (1.3 cm) longer than your measurements.
    In cases where the ceiling profiles are short, you can combine them by using the intermediate apparatus.
  • Screw the profiles tightly with the help of a drill in accordance with the dimensions you have taken.
  • The most important thing to pay attention to during assembly is that the profiles are flat.

Stage 2

  • Cut the rails you have laid in line with your measurements, perpendicular to the beams, using scissors.
  • The rails you install are strong enough to support the weight of the ceiling.
  • Tie a rope, leaving 1-2 meters between them.
  • Do the rope tying application to the entire ceiling
  • Screw in every third beam along the string you have tied.
  • Continue the screwing process along the ceiling to be applied.
  • Pass wires through the hole at the head of your screw
  • The length of the wire should be about 20 – 25 cm.
  • Thread the wire through the hole about 5 – 6 cm and bend it with pliers so that it is facing down.
  • Install perpendicular to the grid by clipping the secondary rails
  • Lay out all the secondary rails so that they go into the main rail.

Stage 3

  • If you are going to make the suspended ceiling illuminated, drill holes in the plaster at the desired intervals for duct work.
  • Shape the tiles you cut from the edges to fit the suspended ceiling
  • Starting in the center of the ceiling, work towards the edges of the ceiling
  • When installing the tiles, make sure you are fully seated.
