One of the most inexpensive, but at the same timequality and reliable building materials is a metal profile. This material may include sheets of corrugated board or metal slats, which are usually used to create frames of various designs.
Thanks to excellent operationalcharacteristics of metal profiles, the size of the sheet which allows you to easily and quickly mount the necessary structure, often chosen as a building material for various fences or building finishes. The metal profile is practically unaffected by the environment, has excellent strength and rigidity, and also has a long service life.
Fabrics made of metal, widelyuse for finishing both walls and roofs or building a fence of proflist. At the same time, during the choice of the material, the question often arises as to what kind of canvas is needed in a particular case. The fact is that the metal profile, the dimensions of which are more than diverse, are distinguished by the carrier, wall and universal. And each of them has its own thickness and height of the corrugation, which is most suitable for a certain type of construction work and provides the required rigidity.
For the correct choice of material, it is necessary to understand what is the difference between the types of corrugated board and in which cases it is preferable to use this or that metal profile.
The dimensions of the corrugated sheet have two parameterswidth: general and working. These values are due to the peculiarities of the installation of the corrugated board, since during the installation each sheet is overwhelmed by at least one edge of stiffness on the previous web. Therefore, when calculating the necessary number of sheets for finishing the surface or building a fence, this nuance must be taken into account. Depending on the type of profiled sheet, the dimensions of the metal profile for the fence may differ by 50-60 mm.
The length of the sheet depends on the wishes of the client, asa rule, a professional flooring in manufacture is cut by cloths in length 1,5; 1,8 or 2,0 m. However, it is possible to produce a profiled sheet to order: the desired height of the future fence will determine which size of the metal profile will be cut.
Profiled sheeting is divided into three main types independing on their size, sheet thickness and corrugation height. From these parameters depends the rigidity of the material, due to which the metal profile is used for various construction and finishing works:
This metal profile is marked with the letter "C" andhas a small height of the stiffener (corrugations). The strength, performance characteristics and material cost depend on this size. The smaller the edge, the lower all these parameters. The corrugation itself has a trapezoidal shape, which guarantees the stability of the blade. Dimensions of the metal profile for the fence:
"NS 35" refers already to the universalmetal profile and is used for fences experiencing high wind load, roofing and partitions. Due to the high corrugation in 35 mm and the sheet thickness of 0.4-1 mm, it is characterized by good strength and stability. The width of the sheets (claimed and actually used) is 1.06 m and 1.0 m, respectively.
Bearing profiled sheeting in private constructionis used mainly to create a capital roof. The small popularity of such a metal profile is due primarily to the relatively high cost of the material. The standard width of the sheet is 1.06 m, thickness - 0.6-1.0 mm.
As you know, the approximate working width of the corrugated sheet is about 1-1,1 m. Be sure to pay attention to the thickness of the material.
For private construction is recommendedto acquire a metal profile, the dimensions of the corrugation of which are 10-20 mm from a sheet with a thickness of 0, 5-0.8 mm. Thin, even at high altitude, the corrugations will not have sufficient rigidity, too thick will be quite expensive.
The metal profile can be produced not only insheets, but also in the form of a profile for creating structures that have a low weight and at the same time have sufficient strength and reliability. Most often, this material is used to create skeletons for plasterboard lining. With the help of such a metal profile, you can quickly erect a partition or curtain wall in the room.
Such a metal profile for gypsum board, sizes andthe form of which differs depending on the purpose, is divided into a rack (CW / CW), directing (UW / UW and PNP / UD), ceiling (CD / CD) and beacon. Each profile is used for its purpose, with all the dimensions of the rails that are used for its production, are interconnected. Since the frame of the frame when mounted is inserted into the guide or ceiling profile, the standard dimensions of both types are satisfied taking this feature into account.
When constructing various structures, for examplepartitions, niches or curtain walls, first of all, calculate the approximate strength of the structure. Depending on the required rigidity and the ability to perceive the given load, it is determined which metal profile to use for the gypsum board. Dimensions reeds are classified according to the width of the profile back.As a rule, the choice starts with a guide profile, which can have a width of 50, 75, 100 mm and a standard depth of 40 mm, the length varies from 3 m to 4 m.
Depending on the selected profilepick up the rack. Despite the fact that manufacturers declare the width of this profile in 50, 65, 75 and 1000 mm, the actual size of the metal profile is 1-2 millimeters smaller. This is necessary in order to easily insert the rack into the ceiling profile. The depth of the rack is always 50 mm, length - 3-4 m.
In addition to these basic materials, there is also a corner metal profile designed to protect the edges of the plasterboard and the corners of the structure, as well as a beacon - for leveling the walls, floor and ceiling.
