Bathroom mirror installation skills
Mirror installation methods can be roughly divided into five types: screw fixation, stud fixation, bonding fixation, supporting pressure fixation and bonding support fixation. Each approach has its own characteristics and scope of application. According to the size of the mirror, the method of arrangement, the place of use and other factors, choose one of them to use alone or a combination of several installation methods.
1. Primary treatment
When building walls or pillars, wooden bricks should be embedded in the wall. The width of the horizontal and the mirror surface is equal, and the firm direction is equal to the height of the mirror. Large-area mirror installation should also be buried in the horizontal and firm directions every 500mm. The walls should be plastered. According to the different parts used, hot asphalt or linoleum should be applied to the plastering surface, or the linoleum can be sandwiched between the wooden lining board and the glass. The main purpose of these practices is to prevent moisture from causing the wood The liner is deformed to prevent the coating from falling off due to moisture and the mirror surface loses its luster.
2. Standing ribs
The wall reinforcement is a small wooden square of 40*40mm or 50*50mm, nailed to the wooden brick with iron nails. The installation of small mirrors is mostly two-way vertical bars, and the installation of large mirrors can be one-way vertical bars, and the positions of horizontal and solid wall bars are consistent with the wooden bricks. The vertical ribs are required to be horizontal and straight to facilitate the fixing of the liner and the mirror. Therefore, the horizontal and vertical lines must be hung when erecting the ribs. Before installation, check whether the moisture-proof layer is completed. After the erecting ribs are nailed, use a long stick to check the flatness.
3. Nail liner
The lining board is a 15mm thick wooden board or a 5mm thick plywood, which is connected to the wall reinforcement with small iron nails, and the nail heads are submerged in the board. The size of the liner can be larger than the spacing of the vertical ribs, which can reduce the cutting process and increase the construction speed. It is required that the surface of the lining board has no warpage or peeling phenomenon, and the surface is smooth and clean. The gap between the board and the board should be at the vertical rib.
4. Mirror installation
The construction of mirror installation includes: mirror cutting, mirror drilling and mirror fixing.
5. Mirror cutting
When installing a certain size mirror, cut a part of the large mirror surface, and cut it on a table or on a flat ground, and plywood or carpet on it. Place the large mirror surface on the table or the ground, measure the size according to the design requirements, rely on the ruler board, use a glass knife to cut from the beginning to the end, move the mirror cutting line to the edge of the table, and use the ruler board at one end Hold down, hold the other end, and quickly move down the board.
6. Mirror drilling
If you choose to drill the mirror with screws, the hole position is generally at the corner of the mirror. First put the mirror on the table or the ground, measure the size according to the drilling position, mark the drilling point with a plastic pen, or drill a small hole with a glass drill, and then water the area to be drilled, the diameter of the drill bit Should be larger than the screw diameter. When drilling holes, water continuously on the mirror surface until it is drilled through. Pay attention to reduce the force when you want to drill through.
7. Mirror fixed
When the mirror is installed, the fixing methods usually include screw fixation, stud fixation, adhesive fixation, support pressure fixation and adhesive support fixation.
At this point, the installation of the bathroom mirror is complete.
