Abstract

The object of the request of patent is a wall spacer to use in the apllication of false ceilings in plaster work. it allows the creation of a “space” between the wall and the plaster work, with a longer space from the point of hookup, of 30 mms. or 50 mms., depending on the type of wall spacer used.
It is' made of wood type MDF, or of other type, milled crossly in its lower part which is to install on the plaster work. the milling allows a good hookup to the the plaster worfk's panel and by the use of proper plaster.

Description

    TECHNICAL RANGE
  • The present invention is a building material used in the application of false ceilings in plaster work. It is precisly a wall spacer; due to the extremely strong and malleable materials from which it is made, the wall spacer is amazingly sturdy, flexible and easy to assemble.
  • THE PREVIOUS TECHNIQUE
  • Currently, a wall spacer doesn't exist for the use of installation of false ceilings in plaster work. rather, false ceilings are directly assembled on the wall with clumsy metallic profiles, fixed with plugs and screws.
  • THE INVENTION'S PRESENTATION
  • The “wall spacer for false ceilings in plaster work” (FIG. 1) allows the creation of a “space” (space between the existing walls and the false ceilings in plaster work, in Italian called “scuretto”).
  • Due to this space, the false ceilings applied on the wall, are lower from the point where they are fixed. this space from the fixing point of the false ceiling is between 30 and 50 millimeters, depending to the type of wall spacer used. Therefore, this new system of wall spacer provides a seamless, flawless affect; false ceilings appear to be suspended by itself or floating at different levels; so they coul be painted in different colors and\or tonality. aesthetically the perimetrical use of the wall spacer, and the separation among the wall and the false ceilings it gets, allows to apply different finishes (color e/o tonality and material), thanks to the lack of visibile union angles and joints, among wall and false ceilings in plaster work.
  • The “wall spacer for false ceilings in plaster work” is a new product used for interior finishes of building. it satisfies the frequent demand to get a separetion between the wall and the false ceiling in plaster work of some centimeters, with a longer space (called abbassamento) from its point of hook-up. So visually, false ceilings' surfaces appears distincted and separated. if the wall spacer is used in the inner side of the false ceiling, it provides to get also different levels and quotas with the possibility of different finishes.
  • The “wall spacer for false ceilings in plaster work” has several qualities, which are underlined:
      • 1. sturdiness: notable support capacity of the plaster work, due to the material from which it is made of (Wood type MDF—Medium Density Fiberboard, or of other type). it has been subjected to freight tests, satisfied rotatory and flexing demands, and demonstrated a notable freight absorption capacity.
      • 2. speed of application: due to its form, it is the directly applicated on the wall, by using common metal small squares fixed with dowels, and applicated on the carrying (opp. main) structure of the plaster work's panel, by using metallic guide fixed with screws;
      • 3. stability of the supports: due to the material which is made, it allows to have a strong adherence of the metallic srews.
      • 4. permanence: its form, dimension and overall structure is not subject to change due to the particular material it is made from.
      • 5. prevarnishing: it is varnished whit a basic white paint on which it is possibile to apply any waterpaint; therefore avoiding the normally problems involved in the process of surface preparation after the application.
      • 6. dimensions: it can be made to desired dimensions and standards;
      • 7. absorption irregularity: due to the use of the application's accessories, it can absorp irregularities of the wall on which is applicated.
    DRAWING DESCRIPTION
  • The FIG. 1 shows the “wall spacer” cross- section view.
  • Details:
  • 1) the milled surface (A.), treated with prymer for improved adherence to the plaster (B) and connected to the plaster work plate (C);
  • 2) the side (D) of the “wall spacer” to stick to the wall;
  • 3) the varnished inner side-front view (e)
  • The FIG. 2 shows cross-section of the wall spacer but in the opposite view. here the milled surface is more visibile (A) treated with prymer for a better adherance.
  • The FIG. 3 details the “wall spacer” application:
  • ¢the “space” (F) between the wall (G) and the false ceiling (C);
  • ¢the application mode to the wall (G) with the aid of small metallic squares(H);
  • ¢the the application mode of the false ceiling(C) with the aid of proper metallic guide (I)
  • DESCRIPTION OF A WAY TO REALIZE THE INVENTION
  • The “wall spacer for false ceilings in plaster work” is constituted by listels in wood type MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), or of other type, the listels are glued and nailed togeteher, creating an only listel L-shaped (its section is similar to the alfabetic letter) the only listel has milled the lower autside part and painted its inner side part. inside part front view (FIG. 2).
  • The process to get the “wall spacer for false ceilings in plaster work” has the following phases:
      • 1. cut of the panels in MDF, or of other type, obtaining two listels in various dimensions;
      • 2. milling of one of the two listels in its lower part. one of the two listels is cutted in its lower part to get a groove on its overall length. it is varnished with the special grappleing varnish prymer, and plastered with proper plaster for plaster work.
      • 3. the milling and the grappleing product, give a lasting and strong adherence among the plaster work and the wall spacer; it doesn't allow the verify of breakages e/o cracks;
      • 4. gluing and nailing, with proper nails very small and thin( possible to cut off with cutting nippers), of the two listels: one listel is placed in horizontal way and the other one (milled in the lower part) in vertical way, getting an only listel with an L section(similar to the alphabetic letter “L”); it shows a milling on the lower a outside part;
      • 5. varnishing of the listel in its inside part front view, with proper painting product; this product permits to apply any waterpaint and\or any finishes.
    INDUSTRIAL APPLICATION The wall spacer's system application can be so summary (FIG. 3):
  • a. application of proper small metal squares: screw the squares on the higher part of the wall spacer and on the wall, where the system will be applied;
    b. application of proper metallic guide: screws the guide on the otuside vertical part of the wall spacer;
    c. application of the plaster work's panel: fix the panel on the metallic guide with screws; plaster the milled wall spacer's lower part.
