Wedge method

If you are using the V-method, the size of the web must be greater than the ceiling.The material is inserted into a baguette with special wedges, then treated with heat and remove the remains.

V-stretch ceiling installation method is more common because it is considered the budget and allows for a short distance between the old ceilings (up to 1.5 cm).In addition, wedge technology requires very precise measurements of the ceiling.

seamless ceiling installation can be carried out without heating.In this case, a web of material on the basis of tissue, which is installed without a heat gun.

Materials and tools

To install the blade by harpoon technology you need:

  • gun (Aidarm used gas);
  • depending on the wall, punch or hammer drill;
  • special spatula from a good metal of 1 mm thickness, 5, and 10 cm - width;
  • screwdriver;

Opening the package with the web must also be in the warm up to 40-50 degrees indoors.Do not hold the heat gun to the vinyl film is closer than a meter and a half!

When Vinyl is easy to warm up and stretch, begin to fill the corners, clipping clothespins.The last corner - the most difficult.If at first it does not turn out to pull, heat gun cloth and try again.Navigate to the central part - on the one hand tuck, and then - on the other.Cloth made upon the principle of "diagonally opposite".Over time refuel not more than 50 cm.

According Aidarm, the most difficult thing when filling the last section - to avoid creases.If they are still there, straighten them strong, but careful breeding movements harpoon in hand from the folds.

After mounting the blade on the harpoon method prints formed the technological gap.Her close flexible plastic panel strip, which comes complete with PVC film.
