What Are They Made Out Of? Since drop ceilings hang from a grid system, the panels need to be relatively light weight in design. Because of this, many drop ceiling light panels are made of plastic and sometimes acrylic. The panel has to be light enough to not put stress on the grid or surrounding panels and to not fall to the ground over time.
Ceiling Light Fixtures: Types and Uses : • Semi-Flush Mounts: Extending below the ceiling, semi-flush lights provide a more widespread illumination than flush mounts because light is able to escape through the bottom and the top of the globe. They tend to be a little pricier than the former, but are often available in elegant designs that rival the formality of a chandelier (and make quite a statement). Consider using semi-flush lights for spaces that are too small for a fancy chandelier, but still require that special decorative touch (like hallways or small home entryways). • Track Lighting. One of the most practical ceiling light fixtures, track lighting is technically a type of semi-flush with multiple, adjustable heads. Track lighting is an ideal choice for large spaces like the kitchen or living room (especially modern surroundings), letting you position the light to shine where you need it the most. • Ceiling Fans. More and more homeowners are replacing basic ceiling lights with ceiling fans for enhanced home value and comfort. Most ceiling fans today have the option to add a light kit, making them extremely practical for almost any room.

How to Fit New Ceiling Lights : Are you a DIY Guru or a bit of a beginner? Want to know more about installing lights? If youre looking to improve the look of a room then installing new ceiling lights is one of the fastest and easiest ways of doing so. Although there is a huge range of sizes, shapes and styles for ceiling lights, installing them always follows the same process: Installing your new lights Your new ceiling light fixture will have come with a mounting bracket. This will look like a solid piece of metal with screw holes and is likely to be shaped like a plate or a strip. The mounting bracket needs to be securely mounted to the electrical box in the ceiling with the wires hanging down around the bracket. Make sure that you attach the ground wire to the grounding screw on the mounting bracket. The next step is positioning your new ceiling lights so that you can connect the wires from the fixture to the ones coming out of the ceiling. Once all the wires are connected you need to carefully lift your new fixture up to the ceiling, pushing the wires up with it, and then line up the screw holes with the ones in the mounting bracket. Tightly secure your lights to the ceiling with the correct screws or bolts - this may take two people depending on the size of your fixture. Testing Once youve finished connecting your new ceiling lights, simply turn the electricity back on and flip the switch. If your room lights up then youve done it correctly. If not, then you will have to switch the electricity back off and check your connections. It is a good idea to check and see if other electrical items in the room are working as you may have blown a fuse - this simple test could save you hours of trying to find a problem with the wires.
