The correct calculation of the ceiling components Armstrong
Installation of ceiling Armstrong, as well as any repair work requires the correct calculation komplektuyuschihPokupat Mounting ceiling Armstrong "blindly" - albeit not very reasonable to do. If you take the components smaller, the interrupting process technology in full swing of work, you need to go back to the store and get a necessary, though not the fact that your trip will be the last. Dial with a stock does not make sense - an extra packing ceiling tile, or unnecessary details frame nobody will be pleased, if, as a result, remain unused. To avoid unnecessary costs, it is necessary to know how to calculate all the components.
Armstrong suspended ceiling: the calculation of components
The calculation of the ceiling Armstrong is the same necessary thing, as having themselves components, tools and manpower. And this calculation is not so difficult as it might seem at first glance.
Calculation can be charged:
- Singer upcoming assembly;
- Suppliers of suspended ceilings.
There is another option - online calculation of the company's website (online calculator).
Calculation of components is usually the responsibility of the artist works, but today some companies offer online calculators on their websites
The values for the calculation
Suppliers of suspended ceilings, as well as online calculator using certain formulas give a very approximate calculation, which determines the amount of material to be used, because they account for only three values.
- Area in m2;
- The size of the plates;
- Perimeter in rm
These approximate figures hardly will suit the consumer. The correct calculation help to reduce errors to a minimum.
Online calculators are fairly simple to use, but the accuracy of the calculation in this case, as a rule, leaves much to be desired
It is believed that the most correct calculations obtained in the false ceiling mounting performers Armstrong.
The fact that these calculations they also have to do because face it not in theory but in practice, taking into account the many nuances on the spot. Under nuances, in this case, refers to the partition, columns, beams, etc. However, how many people - so many opinions. To take their decision, in any case, only for you!
The size of the ceiling Armstrong: how to calculate the
So, what is still needed in order to determine the parameters such as the size of Armstrong ceiling?
You have to calculate:
- Number of plates;
- The number of guide profiles;
- The length of the edge of the wall;
- The number of hangers and anchors.
In order to calculate it right, you need to make the necessary measurements, and using measurements and formulas use certain coefficients and formulas.
Precise measurements - it is almost one hundred percent guarantee of a good result
Of course, without taking into account some features of the room, everything is so accurate, but it is particularly small, which is also necessary to take into account, add on some of the material or accessories.
How to determine the number of plates
To determine the number of panels, the ceiling area (the S), is divided by the area of one plate, and add on another plate (some, just in case, add two).
Knowing the total ceiling area and also the area of one plate sufficiently easy to determine the number of plates
For example: the ceiling, for example, 5.6 × 3, 3 is equal in area 18, 48m2, the area of one plate is, for example, 0, 32m2 (this is true for sheets sized 600 × 600 mm, although its actual dimensions are 610 × 610mm), or multiplied by 0, 74m2, if plates format 610 × 1219mm (said dimensions - 600 × 1200).
In order to calculate the guides must take into account their length and a certain coefficient. So. a profile having a length of 3, 66m, it is equal to 0.8 mi, y guides 1,22m long, it is 1, 55. S - area of the room, and we multiply it by a coefficient and then divide by the length of the profile.
Calculation guide for Armstrong ceiling is made with a special rate
For example: 18,48m × 0, 8: 3, 66 = 40, 39, ie. Profile 41, with the length of 3, 66m, for a room with a ceiling area of 18 48m.
How to calculate the fasteners
In order to calculate the parietal edge, which has a length of 3, 05M, you need only to measure the perimeter of the room.
To calculate the number of dowels and suspensions, it is necessary to consider another factor which is 0.7 mi. Again multiply the area of the room, now, at this rate, we obtain the desired number of pieces.
Calculation of fasteners is also quite simple and will not take a lot of time
For example: 18, 48 × 0, 129 = 7, 36, i.e., 130podvesov 130 and dowels.
Given the above it can be seen from all that the calculations do not require any special knowledge and calculation is available to everyone - all decided by a simple formula and ratio.
The weight of the suspended ceiling Armstrong 1m2
Weight per 1m2 ceiling is an important factor. Ceiling apparatus involves the use of different mother boards.
On average, the weight of the ceiling Armstrong is from 2.5 to 8 kg / m2. Everything, of course, depends on the type of material used. The thickness of the plates may vary.
- Basalt and mineral wool.
Due to its lightness, the mineral fiber plate is the best suited for ceiling Armstrong
Of course, tastes differ. One at all does not recognize a mineral fiber panel, preferring aluminum, others do not want to use anything other than aluminum, and others prefer the mirror surface, the fourth, rely on mineral fibers, considering that this is really what they need.
Of course, the tree looks more solid, but light mineral fiber board, will relieve you of the hassle with installation.
Advantages of mineral plates
The heavier the ceiling, so, of course, need more hangers.
Advantages of mineral plates:
- Low price;
- Lightweight design will save on this aspect, as the equipment;
- Nice appearance allows us to give comfort and even some presentable to any room.
Mineral plate also compares favorably to its price and beautiful appearance
Appearance mineral plates suitable for the majority of consumers, as evidenced by the high sales of this material.
Accessories for suspended ceiling Armstrong
Perhaps we should focus on additional equipment for suspended ceiling Armstrong.
It would be wrong to speak of these false ceilings without mentioning the accessories, without which the ceiling would not be truly modern ceiling.
Without beautiful, modern ventilation grilles and lamps would not have the beauty of convenience and functionality.
Thus, additional equipment:
- Ventilation grille;
- ceiling lights.
Honeycomb Ventilation grille made of impact-resistant plastic, and is installed in suspended ceilings Armstrong without special fasteners.
To the basic equipment for ceilings Armstrong include air vents and recessed lighting
The parameters of this module:
- Thickness - 8 mm.
- Cell size - 15 × 15mm.
- Overall dimensions of the lattice - 595 × 595mm.
The grill unit is made of plastic (PVC), white. Latticed ventilation Sota not only perform its technical functions, but also, importantly, looks great in the interior.
Fixtures for ceiling Armstrong
Fixtures are divided:
- Recessed ceiling. The most proven form of fixtures, which faithfully serves the consumer is not the first dozen years. Reliable and durable, easy to operate.
- False ceiling. Installed on the ceiling surface. The most commonly used in small spaces: entrance hall, cloakroom, pantry, bathroom. Their construction allows such a parameter as the gap (minimum height) between the base and the ceiling-mounted, be made smaller.
- Decorative recessed. It differs very pompous appearance, give the room a "royal" appearance.
- LED panel. The most modern and stylish form of lighting. These ultra-thin panel, the most cost-effective, long-lasting (lifetime of 50,000 hours)
Fixtures for ceiling Armstrong can be either embedded or overlaid
In addition, LED lights are different and that they are less flammable and emit very little heat. This type of lighting consumes a truly negligible amount of electricity, and that is also important for the comfort of use, emit a smooth, natural, and flicker-free light.

In conclusion, I would like to note the following. The correct calculation of the ceiling Armstrong, will save you from unnecessary problems and costs. They just said, it is clear that to calculate the ceiling is not too much trouble, and the action is absolutely necessary. Hardly anyone will enjoy the extra components of the ceiling, which will be gathering dust for years in your garage or basement for years. Useless things for which you have already paid the money, can not cause any other emotions except a sense of disappointment. To avoid this, use nemudronymi formulas and coefficients, or ask them to do it for you by someone else: the seller in the store, or direct installation artist.
Good luck to you repair!
