Spatula for leveling


When building and renovating in many cases, large, flat surfaces must be balanced and made plan. You can read about the techniques for filling and leveling here, and how they can be used in this article.

wall surfaces

Depending on which wall covering is to be applied, walls must be more or less flat and level. In order to determine the quality of the wall condition binding, there is a uniform classification into so-called quality classes:

  • Quality class Q1 is used for walls that have only been roughly planed, sufficient for example for later plastering
  • Quality class Q2 is used when walls are so level that, for example, they can be painted on them
  • Quality classes Q3 and Q4 indicate a wall finish in which high visual demands are made or on which paper is to be papered.

The quality levels are achieved by a corresponding number of putty courses.

So if you order a wall filler in quality class Q3 from the painter, you will have to expect to pay the time for three full putty courses. In quality class Q2, however, there are only 2 putty courses, accordingly, the price is lower.

floor surfaces

Floor areas can - depending on the soil material - be balanced as easily as wall surfaces. Light, punctual bumps on a concrete floor can be easily compensated with concrete spatula. Also screed can be compensated punctually.

However, it is advisable to cover both concrete and screed with a continuous, even layer. As a result, all existing bumps are automatically compensated.

Self-leveling compounds are usually used for such an area compensation. They are in liquid or semi-liquid state.

If they are poured into the room, they run evenly and always form a completely flat surface layer. In this way, larger unevenness of up to 1.5 cm can be easily compensated, depending on the type and thickness of the leveling layer.

Cladding of walls and ceilings

For walls and ceilings, a covering can be considered for very large bumps, ideally with plasterboard. In front of the wall, a stand is mounted on which plasterboard panels are mounted.

As a result, a level, practically "superior" layer is created even with rough bumps, which can then be further processed.

For very large or irregular bumps, this is often the less expensive, more efficient, and more effective method of area compensation.
