Fastening device "kremmer" is a rectangular plate made of galvanized metal. On the edges of the rectangle there are bending holes, which makes it more convenient to fix the beacons. In the central part there is a slot for screwing in a self-tapping screw. The design of such a mount for beacons allows not only placing a guide on it, but also easily changing its position, just loosening the screw for a few turns. Plastering requires a significant amount of material. So, when decorating the walls of a standard two-room apartment, you can spend from 5 to 6 cubic meters of dry mix and tens of hours. Whereas special fasteners "kremmer" for installing beacons can reduce both the time to complete the work and the amount of mixture spent by almost a third.
Among the advantages that such fastening gives in the process of performing plastering work, one can name:
- the ability to install guides without the use of plaster mixes, as a result of which there are no "wet" works and no time is required to wait for the solution to dry;
- installation of metal profiles of any thickness on such fasteners that are suitable as guides;
- compatibility with various options of fasteners on which the cremmer fasteners themselves are installed for installing beacons;
- reliable fixation of the guide and, at the same time, simple adjustment of its position.
To move the mount to the side, it is enough to unscrew the self-tapping screw (screw or screw) and make the necessary adjustments. Then the fasteners are returned to their original position and work begins. In this case, the guides themselves can be installed at different distances from the wall surface, as a result of which the performer can adjust the thickness of the plaster layer and the material consumption.
It is worth noting as an advantage that the installation of "kremmer" mounts for plaster beacons does not require any specialized knowledge. To install them, you do not need the experience of construction work required in the manufacture of, for example, gypsum guides. And, therefore, almost everyone can cope with them, without resorting to specialists at least at this stage. Although it is advisable to entrust the plastering work to a professional.
There are the following options for placing the guides on the wall:
- mount (Kremmer) for installing beacons:
- clips for plaster beacons;
- mount for lighthouses Ushastik;
- installation of beacons on the solution;
- plastering walls without lighthouses;
- string method of aligning walls.
Perfect installation of galvanized beacons
Before installing fasteners for plaster beacons, it is required to first measure and mark. First of all, it concerns the definition of the "zero point" from which the alignment of the entire wall begins. Most often, the most convex part of the structure - a protrusion or tubercle - is taken for it. When plastering other surfaces, the "zero point" can be the floor level of two adjacent rooms, and the joints of the ceiling, for the alignment of which beacons can also be used. In addition, the technology for installing beacons can take into account the need to hide communications behind the plaster - wires, pipes, air ducts. These constructs also influence the choice of "zero" level.
After determining the position of the reference point, select the places for installing the guides. In this case, the beacons should not intersect with the "zero" mark, but be at least a little (1 mm) further from the main part of the wall. With this method, the plaster layer can be brought to a minimum thickness, while maintaining the size of the room and saving money on materials. Places for fastening "kremmer" for plaster beacons are marked with straight lines, the position of which is determined by level or with the help of slats, chopping threads and rules.
The next stage of preparation is drilling holes with a vertical pitch of 300-400 mm and installing dowels. Thus, on a wall with a height of 2.5–2.7 m, there may be 7 kremmer fasteners used to install plaster beacons. And the horizontal distance between the beacons is taken as standard - from 1 to 1.5 m, depending on the length of the rule. Although, the smaller it is, the easier it will be to plaster.
Installation of guide plates
After the installation of the dowels is completed, self-tapping screws are installed in them (with the alignment of the caps in one plane) and the direct installation of fasteners for the "kremmer" beacons. In this case, you should focus on the "zero point", leveling the layer in such a way that its plane overlaps this reference point. As a result, the wall is as flat as possible, and less plaster is consumed.
It is best to use a laser level to correct the position of the screw heads, with the help of which fasteners for beacons are installed under the plaster. First, one of the screws is set at the "zero" point. Then the rest are aligned on it. The screws are tightened until all the caps are in the same plane.
During the installation process, it is advisable to take into account the following nuances:
- the mount for the beacons should not be tightened manually, but with a screwdriver in the minimum speed mode. This will allow for more precise control of the twist;
- if necessary, adjust the position of the guide, just move the fasteners for installing the beacons from the self-tapping screw, unscrew it and move the profile. If the distances between the fasteners are too small, you may need to unscrew several screws.
When unscrewing the fastening bolts for plaster beacons, it is advisable to take into account the number of revolutions. Exactly the same amount should be done if you want to loosen other screws as well.
The price of such a mount for plaster beacons, which can be bought in most construction markets and online stores, is relatively small:
- 100 parts can be bought for 116 rubles;
- a package of 50 parts costs 58 rubles.
A wall with a height of 2.7 m and a length of 5 m will require about 35 fasteners. Up to 100 pieces per room. For an average two-room apartment during a major overhaul (taking into account corridors and doorways) - at least 300 elements, the total cost of which will be slightly more than 300 rubles. It is not for nothing that it is said on the packaging that it saves nerves and saves energy.
