Ways of Installing an LED Panel Light on a Ceiling
| Ariful Islam
After the journey of choosing and purchasing the best LED panel light, it is now time for installation.
Installation of LED panel lighting can be done in 3 easy ways:
Mounting Frame Kit
Additional brackets can be bought along with your LED panels to help you mount your light onto the ceiling or against a wall. This mounting kit is available in a white or sliver surface and has an aluminium durable body.
These can be purchased for as little as £11.99. It has a descent 5cm height and it weighs less than 0.5 kg. Which allows plenty of room for the LED driver or an emergency driver.
Hanging Suspension Kit
Counting a kit with cables to hang on the ceiling this makes installing very simple and flexible to determine the ideal height of your light output. As low as £4.99 this simple suspension set can be purchased and can be used for any size panels.
By using a suspended ceiling, you can switch your old fluorescent fixture with a new LED panel light or any empty space. All you need to do is remove the ceiling tile or your old fluorescent fixture then place your LED panel light then simply connect your LED driver’s two wires to the mains.
The transformer has a simple push and twist connection that’s attached to your LED panel light. All of our LED panel lights come with an LED driver that is free of charge.
Connect the Light Engine with a Frame
We need to check the terminals on this pair of light engines before putting them together. One of light engines has only a male terminal while the other has both a male and a female terminal. As these two light engines are designed to be connected in parallel, we need to ensure that the female and male terminal in each engine should be fixed near each other.
As for the installation, the first step is to put the wires through the cutout hole (476mm x 39mm). You must then push the light engine into the hole, which is same for the other light engine as we need to connect the terminals after two light engines are placed. There is a female terminal onto the driver that needs to be connected with the remaining male terminal in the light engine.
Connecting Frame with Accessories
Some accessories need to be used for the pendant and surface because the standard design is based on recessed mounted LED panel into T-Grid Bars. In terms of pendant mounting, there are 4 pieces of ropes that will be used to connect the frame to the drywall ceiling tightly.
To remove the light engines from the frames, you must take the engine out by removing the buckles of each light manually. There are a total of 12 buckles that are used to put the engine to frame together.
Install the accessories to the panel lights (please contact our salesman for the specifications where detailed installation steps are shown) then use the screws to fix the four hanging cables onto the roof. You must then double check that the 4 steel cables are adjusted so that the LED panel is horizontally aligned.
