How to install water ripple stainless steel sheet on the ceiling
Generally, there are three common ways to install water ripple ceiling panels – directly sticking them onto the roof, suspending them from iron frames, or folding the edges of the panels and applying structural adhesive to the back before affixing them onto wooden panels.
Installation Method One: Direct sticking onto the roof
This is the simplest and most convenient method of installation. However, if you choose this way, we recommend using a thickness of 0.5-0.8mm due to the uneven surface of the water ripple panels. Thinner panels are easier to adjust and fix during installation.
Installation Method Two: Iron Frame Hanging
This method is mostly used in large supermarkets, shopping malls, or some public places with higher requirements for flatness and stability.
First, prepare the iron frame according to the size of the water ripples stainless steel sheet to be installed, then fix it on the ceiling with screws.
Secondly, use 304 special expansion screws to fix the water ripples stainless steel sheet on the iron frame; Finally, check whether each connection is firm and whether the whole water ripples stainless steel sheet is flat.
Installation Method Three: Pasted on Wooden Board
This method is much easier and suitable for small-scale decoration or some special-shaped ceilings.
The specific installation steps are as follows:
1.Fix 7-10mm thick wooden board onto the ceiling
2. Cut 3-5mm wide grooves in the corresponding position of the board according to the customized or standard size of the water ripple sheet
3. Fold four sides of water ripple sheets towards the backside 90 degrees 5-8mm wide
4. Apply enough structural adhesive to the back of the sheet
5. Paste the water ripple sheets on the wooden panels (Leave an appropriate gap between sheets as per the desired design effect)
6. Support the ceiling panels with wooden strips until the glue dries (It usually takes around 12 hours for the glue to dry completely)Remove the wooden strips and the protective films of the sheets
