Drywall can create a simple single-level design, and smart systems in several tiersDrywall can create a simple single-level design, and smart systems in several yarusovGKL aka giposkarton sheet, fairly cheap material based on cellulose and plaster. It is lightweight, easily mounted on any plane (using aluminum profiles). Immediately upon its installation is not a large indentation on a basis of plaster. When you need to perform the alignment lines on the perimeter, which makes it possible to hide the visual defects of the main ceiling without parsing.


Best ceilings of GCR technology

The best sheet of drywall on the ceiling mount technology - is the use of Knauf system. That is, each attachment sheet separately mounted on the aluminum profile in advance. That, in turn, is rigidly attached to both the walls and the main ceiling.

Suspensions made on the belts if necessary (e.g., if the length of each span is more than 4-5 meters).

It should be mentioned that the GCR is allowed:

  • paint;
  • trim cover;
  • close PVC film;
  • whitewash.

Mounted box of the FCL on the ceiling

What will the mounted box? Ability to create a two-tiered ceiling. In one of the parts (the base of which is below), you can mount all the necessary lighting. Ibid fit without problems and other communications (cable for Internet, the counter output). The most difficult thing in this case - the calculation. Mounting means that initially will be fully secured the first level. Top - mounted ducts for new guiding profiles.


Keep in mind that the total mass of the structure to get pretty big, so you need to advance to provide additional bracing.

But for this purpose it is best suited:

  1. partitions (subject SNP);
  2. false revetment, behind which are hidden cap screws;
  3. rigid filing of the second level.

Often the box equips plasterboard on the ceiling, giving it a multilevelOften the box equips plasterboard on the ceiling, giving it a multilevel

Which option would be ideal for a given situation? It is better to entrust the choice of a professional builder or designer.



Painting the ceiling of GCR: Options

Staining ceilings based plasterboard sheets is best done water-based paint (emulsion). Its key advantage - the absorption of the cellulosic substrate. Accordingly, in the future it will not burn in the sun, do not increase the surface roughness. It has similar properties and acrylic paint, but its use is still not worth indoors. On top of that painting should be carried out with the spray gun, instead of conventional rollers. After the last remain visually noticeable dents.

Does it even need to paint the ceiling of the GCR? Advantages it gives more:

  • great mechanical resistance;
  • protection against insects (if at all are found in the house);
  • waterproofing of the vapor.

When choosing colors need to start from the ceiling materials and room characteristicsWhen choosing colors need to start from the ceiling materials and room characteristics

The disadvantages can also be attributed only to the fact that re-painting have to do every 3-5 years. And if ordinary ceiling there are no problems, then on two levels have a lot of trouble.

GCR and gypsum fiber board ceiling: differences

GVL, aka gipsovolokno - this is the drywall, but also produced a slightly different technology. Its thickness is substantially similar, but use it mainly in those areas where there are increased requirements for fire safety. Their exterior trim advised. However, many manufacturers are still in the factory conditions decorate such sheets shape cutting and carving.

Advantages of GVL:

  1. reliability;
  2. a higher coefficient of moisture absorption (up to 12 liters per square meter);
  3. absolutely smooth surface.

Mounting GOLS sheets also performed according to a predetermined frame of metal profiles. Fastening apparatus is identical to that used with plasterboard (Knauf).

GOLS (gypsum sheets) have a special hydrophobic impregnation and may therefore be used in humidGOLS (gypsum sheets) have a special hydrophobic impregnation and may therefore be used in humid

Installation of the FCL on the ceiling with his hands

Run the installation of the FCL with your hands is not difficult. The main objective of the specialist is to determine the nominal profiles mounting level. Typically, the indentation is from 3 to 10 centimeters. If you plan to put the lamps or to equip all this illumination, the distance may be increased. If the top is a wooden ceiling, it is recommended to line layer of fiberboard.


Even if you intend to do duplex - first of all completely put the first level (one-piece cloth). Box stuffed already at this layer. Simple calculator and several mathematical formulas enable to know exactly how much is required for all this stuff.

Mounting ceiling of GCR:

  • layout;
  • plaster main ceiling;
  • Installation of aluminum profiles, which will hold the structure;
  • sheets one at installation;
  • installation of eaves at the base of the walls.

Option: the ceiling of GCR for Knauf technology

With the help of Knauf systems can create a more so-called floating ceiling, that is, which is not attached to the walls around the perimeter. On the sides, there are usually mounted LED lights.

Fixing soaring ceiling rests on:

  1. profiles with elongated faces;
  2. belts;
  3. beams (if necessary).

What are the advantages of Knauf system? At that it fits any home, while after the ceiling will not be mounted at all noticeable. This also applies to the installation of gypsum fiber sheet.
