Stretch Ceiling material
Material .The stretch ceiling can be made of PVC film or fabric. Film ceilings are cheaper, have less strength and are afraid of negative temperatures. However, they have one big advantage over the fabric - water resistance. Many people are familiar with the annoying situation, when the newly whitewashed ceiling is colored with yellowish divorces due to neighbors from the top, who arranged another flood. Some people have such "luck" for life. Film tension ceiling not only successfully withstand the weight of spilled water, it can be pulled again and forget about the misunderstanding. Fabric stretch ceilings are resistant to cold weather, they are difficult to pierce with a sharp object. If desired, the fabric can be painted with acrylic paint.
Texture. PVC canvas can have a matte, glossy or satin surface. Matt ceilings - a quiet classic option, suitable for any areas and interiors. Glossy stretch ceiling advantageously fit into a minimalist interior or interior in high-tech style, visually expanding the area of the room. Satin texture - a compromise between matte and glossy: reflections in the ceiling are unobtrusive, blurred, give the interior a special tranquility, and the light from chandeliers is scattered, has no pronounced pattern. Satin texture is suitable for spacious rooms. Fabric fabrics are produced only in a matte version.
Presence of seams. The seam on the ceiling canvas is a weak link in the structure. It is especially visible on a glossy surface. If the width of the canvas is not enough to create a seamless stretch ceiling, you can combine canvases of different colors to make the seam visually beaten, or make a multi-level ceiling, in different areas of which will be used solid sheets. The problem of creating a seamless ceiling is less likely to arise when choosing a fabric web, the width of which is 5 m or more, which allows covering large areas. The film for ceilings is more often produced in width from 1,5 to 3,2 m, however recently there are canvases with a width of 5,6 m.
Color solutions. White or ivory, blue, pink or even black - you just need to choose a color. If desired, in one ceiling, you can combine several colors or even order photo printing. Pastel colors are usually chosen for the living room and bedroom, with more vibrant you can experiment in the nursery or in the kitchen, a large spectacular drawing will be interesting to look in the hall or hallway, in the bathroom.

Installation of a false ceiling consists of several stages:
Preparation of the room. At this stage, everything that can be damaged during work, including fragile and valuable equipment, glass objects, pictures and photos from the walls, is removed from the room. We also recommend removing animals.
Access to the walls. This must be done around the perimeter of the room. In addition, all the furniture should be moved away from the walls at a distance of not less than one meter. If the wardrobe or other furniture cannot be moved, then it is possible to remove the mezzanine or the upper storey from it: for the performance of work, this is enough.
Direct mounting. This stage takes about half an hour. Installers first attach a baguette to the wall, and then to its corners - a stretch ceiling. To smoothly stretch it to the entire area of the room, the canvas needs to be heated to 60 degrees. For this, a safe gas heater is used, the use of which excludes any possibility of explosion or fire. After heating, the web becomes elastic and easily stretches. If you are worried about the use of heating equipment in the apartment, then we hurry to warn you that only the stretch ceiling itself is exposed to high temperatures. The room temperature will not rise above 40 degrees, which is safe for furniture and interior.
When the web tension is finished and the material is cool, it is possible to cut out the holes necessary for the installation of luminaires, ventilation grids, power lines and other communications. We ask you to visit the installers to buy and prepare lighting, gauges and decorative elements for installation.
At the final stage, the traces of mounting, handprints are removed from the ceiling. Wizard-installers, if possible, will remove dust and packaging from the materials. After that, the customer can take work. If there is no claim to quality, an acceptance certificate is signed. The calculation for the work is taken after the signing of the act.
