Kleimers, their features and characteristics

In modern construction, lining as a finishing material is very popular today. This is due to many different factors. This material is distinguished by its reliability and quality, and its installation does not cause any particular difficulties for builders. When carrying out external finishing work with hardware for lining, as a rule, nails and screws are used. However, if it is necessary to perform a neat installation, with the ability to hide all the fasteners, cleats become almost indispensable.

That is why they are used with equal success for both external and internal finishing work.

What is a kleimer?

Kleimer is a special fastening element in the form of a bracket, mounted with nails or self-tapping screws on a prepared base - a crate, or directly on a wall. The cleaimer hook firmly fixes the lining, while allowing you to make all the fasteners hidden. This type of hardware is used for the installation of not only lining, but also plastic PVC panels and MDF elements.

Advantages of using cleamers

Hidden lining fasteners for cleats have become so popular for many reasons:

  • It can greatly speed up the installation process.

  • Eliminates all risks of damage to materials, splits or cracks associated with the use of standard hardware - nails and screws.
  • Individual and precise selection of fasteners corresponding to the type of lining used.
  • High reliability of fixation. Boards fixed with brackets will not begin to play and loosen over time.
  • Kleimers do not require the purchase of additional components.

    All that is needed for installation is the staples themselves and the nails with self-tapping screws.

  • Coating with an anti-corrosion layer ensures durability and a high degree of reliability of the fasteners.
  • Low cost and availability of kleimers, excellent combination of price and quality.

How to choose the right brackets for the lining?

Kleimers must be selected based on the type of lining used when finishing the room. It comes in a variety of thicknesses and weights, so the mounting brackets must be of the appropriate size and tongue height.

  • Plastic products and elements made of MDF can be fixed with clamps 1-2 mm high.
  • Fasteners with a tongue of 3 millimeters are used for finishing materials from chipboard.
  • Euro lining is mounted using clamps 4 mm high.
  • When decorating a house with an ordinary wooden clapboard, staples of 5 millimeters are used.
  • The most powerful fasteners require a block house.

    Here you will need six mm clamps.

Kleimers of different types

The most reliable clamps are 0.5 mm thick, made of galvanized become. Such kleimers are not afraid of corrosion and rust, they are durable and can be used with equal success for both internal and external finishing work.

Calculation of the number of cleats required to carry out work

As for the consumption of fasteners, then, as practice shows, to securely fix a square meter of lining you will be enough about two dozen staples.

But nevertheless, it is better to buy them with a margin, since the cost of kleimers is low.

The exact calculation of the required number of fasteners is carried out according to the following algorithm:

  • We measure the length of one panel of the lining.
  • Determine the pitch of the lathing frame. Typically, standard values ​​range from 40 to 60 centimeters.
  • Divide the first number by the second, adding one to the result.

  • We multiply the result by the total number of lining panels that are planned to be used for finishing work.
  • The number of packages with fasteners is calculated based on the number of staples in one. Each box contains 100 clamps as standard.

Fastening the lining with clamps

Before starting the installation, calculate the number of clamps required for work according to the above algorithm. Further, depending on the type of hardware with which we will attach the lining to the crate, we select the tool.

To install with nails, we need:

  • Building level and square
  • Mallet or hammer with rubber head
  • Hammer with metal head
  • Measuring tape

Mounting using self-tapping screws instead of a hammer with a metal head will require an additional screwdriver or screwdriver.

Antiseptic treatment of walls and wooden surfaces of materials

The wall on which we will create the frame, like the lining itself, is pre-treated with special antiseptic agents. This will help us avoid many unpleasant consequences, such as decay of materials and the development of fungal formations.

Quite often, lining manufacturers, even at the production stage, process its surface, covering the wood with a protective layer. The acquisition of such ready-to-use building materials greatly speeds up the finishing process.

The wood is treated with antiseptic agents according to the following algorithm:

We clean the surfaces from dirt and dust. In the case of boards, sandpaper does an excellent job with this task. For a deeper cleaning of the wood, we use special bleaching agents for the lining or wood stain.

Cleaning wood with sanding paper

Priming the surface with acrylic, alkyd or polystyrene primer. Remember that polystyrene primer is only used for outdoor use, and acrylic is used exclusively for interior decoration.

It is advisable to check with the seller about the alkyd primer, since their range is very wide.

Priming the wooden surface

Apply an antiseptic. For interior finishing work, we need a water-based impregnation. Any type of antiseptic is suitable for outdoor work. Remember that the durability of the entire structure depends on the quality of the product, so buy only certified impregnation.

Applying an antiseptic to the lining

At the final stage of processing, wooden surfaces are covered varnish. If the installation of the lining is carried out indoors, then alkyd or acrylic varnishes are suitable for us. Work outside the house must be carried out using acrylic-polyurethane varnish.

Installing the battens

Before starting the frame assembly, you need to outline the level according to which further crate will be made. After that, we decide on the direction of fastening the bars.

Remember that their orientation must be perpendicular to the lining mounting vector.

Facade lathing

The subsequent sequence of actions will look as follows:

  • Set by level and we fix the guides along the wall, we mark the wall for the future crate. It is most convenient to do it with chalk. This makes it possible to initially imagine how all the structural elements will be located.

Checking the level of the crate

  • We fix the bars for our frame with a gap of no more than one meter .

    .. When working with wooden lining, the optimal interval is 0.5-0. 6 m.

  • Next, we fix and set the elements of the crate on the bars. If the level is violated, we use pads where necessary.

The lathing of rounded surfaces has its own characteristics and is made from parts of the timber. You can see the appearance of such a crate in the photo below.

Installation of lining

It is necessary to start work only if favorable conditions.

If you fix the lining in the cold, when the temperature drops below + 10 C, this will lead to its deformation.

The technique of carrying out work on vertical and horizontal wall cladding with clapboard differs somewhat. However, in both cases, it is necessary to achieve a tight fit of the spike into the groove using a padding board and a mallet.

The installation process itself is as follows:

Mounting the lining in the horizontal direction

According to the level markings we fasten starting board lining with nails or self-tapping screws
