«Let there be light!» – said an electrician and cut off all the wires. Yes, it is a trivial situation that can happen to anyone, if theoretical knowledge and practical skills sufficient to efficiently perform actions on the installation of lighting. Lighting modern apartments is not limited to the classic chandelier. The variety of lights impresses the mind and delights the imagination of buyers, and the process of their installation «embarrasment».
Lamps various design modifications require different approaches to their installation. Capacity of the product, the quantity and their place in the interior – all important criteria for correct installation and proper connection of the lamp to the wiring.
Any lighting device, regardless of manufacturer, type and purpose, always involves two main parts:
- lamp electric;
This is perhaps the only tenet that unites all the lamps together. All other qualitative characteristics rathnadeepa:
- mind generated lighting;
- the type of lights used;
- the material from which is made the cartridge.
The reflector casing and clamping devices – these components of the device is also different and is determined solely by the manufacturer.
The installation of the lamp is important and dangerous, but that does not mean that only professional wizard, is able to perform the installation of the device. You can own at home to install the lamp with your hands, if you stick to the instructions, the sequential algorithm of actions and recommendations of specialists.
The location of the lighting devices are divided into:
- ceiling (are suspended and embedded);
- floor and table;
- portable (when the dock is not fixed).
Mission wall lights – lighting any areas in the room or accentuation of sweetpotato on the subject. Such devices look impressive and attractive, giving the house a relaxed, romantic and relaxing streams of light.
Determining location for installation, it is advisable to place the electrical cables inside the wall. It can be positioned in the toothing or behind drywall.
1. Before beginning electrical work to disconnect the cable:
- turn the main switch (machine);
- check the voltage. It shall be absent;
2. Read the instructions offered to set osvetitelnoi and according to the scheme, disassemble the lamp;
3. The housing wall of the lighting device with the special holes for mounting of the lamp attach to the wall in the location where you plan to install it;
4. With a pencil mark holes;
5. Put the housing in the direction;
6. With a punch (if the wall is brick or concrete) or drill (if concrete wall or plasterboard) make holes given the depth and the diameter of the used fastening elements.
- if the wall is brick or concrete, fit the dowels
- if the wall is plasterboard or plastic panels, mounted the unit using moles;
- easy to make holes with a rotary hammer if the wall is made of brick or concrete;
- in case the gypsum or concrete wall, use an ordinary drill.
7. Secure the base (housing) of the device on the wall;
8. Connect the lighting device to the power supply using the terminal block. It is placed inside of the lamp;
9. Check the operation after connecting.
- Getting to the installation process, please review the form of a trailer hook. It is important! Because the tow hook is different and depends on the type of ceiling cover. Given the fact that manufacturers do not include acquisition of several types of hooks, therefore, to buy it will have their own;
- always under the tow hook buy drill bits and dowels. They should ideally be the same size;
- prepare tools: hammer drill, drill.
It looks like the hook is for mounting hanging lamp
The main practice stage
- Drill a hole for the dowel.
Secure the item.
- Often in homes of reinforced concrete already has holes with a ready-made fasteners. Consequently, the stages of installation are reduced;
- if the ceiling is of wood, the installation process is identical in the action;
- ceiling suspended structures require the use of hooks of a special shape. If the form of a hook – standard, it is necessary to enclose washers.
- When mounting the hook in hanging drywall painting, should fix his box of wood or metal;
- if such boxes are not, you can mount it in a normal wood beam, the size of which is 10 cmTwo.
Recessed lighting fixtures are different from previous samples in a completely different distribution principle.
Useful information. For this method feeder light is needed in advance to prepare the holes in suspended ceiling structures.
Initially (in the process of assembling the ceiling) fill in the holes, and then attach them to the wiring;
- during the installation process, you will need a terminal screwdriver and a knife. Prepare them;
- built-in lighting devices equipped with spring-loaded clips that need to take up for easy installation of the lamp in the hole;
- after fixing the clamps carefully lower. The piece is in the correct position;
- connect the lamp;
A simple circuit consisting of a power source switch and directly lighting the product is absolutely identical in technological schemes of connection of standard samples.
Spot lighting products use bulbs with a total power of 12 watts.
The attachment of the lighting device takes place on a special suspension, the so-called base surface;
- if you decide to do the hole yourself, before the cutting process of the fabric, it is necessary to build the future site of the holes of the reinforcing ring;
- when the glue is completely dry, you can start cutting from the inner part of the ring;
A similar method of mounting the lamps on the ceiling allows you to install as overheads, and suspension products and, no matter whether it is concrete, the ceiling surface or suspended structure.
- Prepare the necessary materials and tools (plugs, screws, screwdrivers, wrenches, drill).
- For the dowels make holes.
- Fasten a lath screws.
- Using nuts, bolts and screws, installation guide ceiling.
As you can see, the difficulty there, but having a quality working tool, related materials and, of course, skill will bring to a successful result. The main thing – to know the methods of installation and to choose the installation process is under the individual’s own case. If difficulties still arise, use video or photos «experienced». Good luck!
