Support adjustable for lag, as a solution for leveling the floor
Concrete screed is a dirty and difficult work,but this is an integral part of the floor leveling. But thanks to such a novelty as a support adjustable for logs, you can get rid of the laborious screed process. This method does not require special physical effort. Many sighed with relief, as soon as such supports were born.
The support, adjustable for the lag, fits intoblack surface, and slopes are exposed at the expense of small beams or chips. Then the floor boards are laid on top and screwed. Thanks to this system of the device, it became possible to level any surface, even if it has a huge slope or there are hillocks. The logs and the base are stacked in such a way that a space appears between them, which can be used to set up any communications. Usually the height varies from 4 to 19 centimeters.
Such an installation system has its advantages, namely:
1) Ventilation of space is carried out.
2) There is the possibility of laying the insulation (thanks to the height).
3) The small weight of the design, which distinguishes it from all other species.
4) Ease of construction (you can use any ideas, high threshold, small podium).
5) Directly the installation technology itself (provides a long operation due to ventilation).
The adjustable surface can consist of the mostdifferent materials. Regardless of what you choose, the design will remain firm, and this gives confidence in its operation. Usually use such materials:
- particle board;
- beams (50x50 or 100x100 mm);
Adjustable supports for lags are installed on thestuds, which are fixed in the basis of the floor. Which exactly will be the base, concrete or other, is completely unimportant, since the whole structure is quite resistant to any loads. To increase the durability of the operation of the floor, all its components must be treated with an antiseptic and thoroughly dried.
The whole design is fixed to the bases thatAdjustable supports for logs protrude. With your hands, fixing all the details is not so difficult, because they have an external thread and easily fall into place. The internal fastening is provided by a stud, which is screwed into the concrete base and fixed to the support. But it is worth noting that if not concrete is used, but wood, then nails and dowels are replaced with wood screws.
From the foregoing it becomes clear thatThe only useful tool for installing the floor is a drill or screwdriver. For particularly sturdy, of course, a screwdriver. If you want to raise the floor by a couple of centimeters, you can exclude logs and just use the plywood or stove. But in such a situation it is necessary to replace the dowels with plastic, which in the future will be fixed in the bushings. If you want to raise the floor more than 5-6 centimeters, you will have to use standard metal dowels, which will be installed lags. And already on top of them will be put flooring.
Support adjustable (for logs) using metal studs
To do this installation yourself, you will need:
All of the above shouldmatch the size of each other. That is, if the studs are M8 sizes, then all other materials should be the same. Also, you will need self-tapping screws for the installation, because they act as fasteners when installing the top deck. Hairpins should be above the level of the surface at least a couple of centimeters.
Sequence of work
The first thing to do is to make holes in the lags,based on the depth of the nut. The calculation is made according to the diameter of the washer, and a couple of millimeters is added to it. If you use the size M8, then you are ideally suited for such sizes:
1) The depth should be 10 millimeters.
2) The diameter is 26 millimeters.
In order to firmly insert the hairpin, you needdrill a hole 1 mm smaller. This will give the strength of the fasteners. Then you need to drill the rough floor according to the diameter of the previously prepared hairpin. The distance between the fasteners should not be equal or be more than 40 centimeters. The lag is applied to the floor, and points are created for creating holes, after which the anchors are slaughtered.
To assemble a hairpin, special efforts or knowledgenot necessary. To do this, we put on the washer and tighten the nut. These accessories act as a stop for the hairpin. Why screw another nut and put on the puck. All washers are tightened well, after which the floor is installed.
In conclusion, it can be said that the adjustable support (for lag) is one of the most remarkable inventions of mankind.
