Glue ceilings

Recommendation points

Glued ceilings are square or rectangular polystyrene panels. The front surface can be covered with a film painted like wood, fabric or stone. On the surface of square tiles, a relief is often created that imitates stucco or wood carvings.


Applications of adhesive ceilings

Recommended for ceilings in residential premises: offices, bedrooms, etc. Can be used in kitchens, but only tiles laminated with a protective film. These ceiling tiles can be glued to almost any surface: concrete, masonry, gypsum and particle boards. They hide substrate defects and provide color unification of the surface.

Application technology. Installation

The tiles are simply glued to the base ceiling. In this case, the surface must be pre-cleaned (especially from whitewash) and preferably primed.

The range of adhesives used is very wide: from PVA to universal. But it is best to use polystyrene glue or special glue for ceiling coverings – in this case, you are guaranteed not to spoil the tiles, and later you can easily peel them off (the base is not damaged – the tiles can be glued elsewhere).

To install ceiling tiles, you must:

  • pull the strings diagonally between opposite corners and mark the center at the intersection;
  • through the center designated in this way, cross two straight lines parallel to the walls and dividing the room into four equal parts;
  • on the glued side of the tile, apply a thin layer of glue (completely or dotted);
  • glue the first tile in the center of the ceiling;
  • stick the next tiles in parallel rows;
  • glue the edges between the wall and ceiling with cornices;
  • rinse off any glue residues immediately with a sponge.
  • Accessories

    Shaped profiles (ceiling cornices) matching the color of the tiles, decorative rosettes.


    Maintenance of glued ceilings is as follows:

  • dust should be removed with a soft brush or vacuum cleaner with a soft attachment;
  • small stains of dirt can be removed with a regular eraser;
  • if washing is necessary, you can use a damp sponge, mild soap and warm water, do not fill the planks with water.
