How to choose a chandelier for a stretch ceiling right? Here it is necessary to take into account several important points:

Harmony of colors

All colors in the interior should be in harmony with each other. This also applies to the combination of a lighting device with a ceiling surface.

Therefore, it should be precisely on this aspect to start to pay attention to:

  • steel color excellent accentuate and complement a black polyvinyl chloride sheet;
Steel and darkness - excellent combination

Steel and darkness - excellent combination

  • Dark contrast lighting best suited to the ceiling light, it is advantageous to use them as a background;

  • Another advantageous course will be the installation of the lighting device, colors that are repeated in the pattern of the cloth. Then the whole composition will look like a single unit.

Technical compatibility chandelier with cloth

If the previous point can be attributed to the different models of ceiling designs, this problem in the very tension ceilings. The fact is, what they are made of polyvinyl chloride film or fabric, which is very vulnerable to the effects of high temperatures.

So here are the following important technical features of the luminaire:

  • "Horns" together with the lamps should be directed downwards or at least away from the ceiling. This will avoid the occurrence of dark circles on the canvas as a result of overheating;
Ceiling down - a guarantee of no effect overheating PVC or fabric cover

Ceiling down - a guarantee of no effect overheating PVC or fabric cover

If you really want to stretch ceiling chandelier to have "horns" pointing upward, then we should consider the glossy cloth and a small amount of low-power lamps. Gloss double received portion of light, compensating for its small thickness, and wherein the polyvinyl chloride will not receive heat pernicious portion.

  • Lighting cymbal type or a bubble, touch the canvas, a form We should not be at the bottom of the metallic elements. Iron in operation will be very warm, due to which deforms the heat-sensitive coating;
All contact with the stretch ceiling chandeliers ceiling elements must be made of materials with low thermal conductivity

  • Better to luminaire has a lot of light bulbs, Which is low power than the two or three dazzling "Sun". This again did reduce the volume of the resulting coated ceiling dangerous heat;
Many small bulbs rather small number of large

Many small bulbs rather small number of large

  • maximally safely install the chandelier on the suspended ceiling with closed shades. In this case it is not even the direction of the "horns", it is the spread of localized heat;

  • Remember that the gloss is not only double the coverage and "pull" the room up at the expense of its mirror effect. He is also a display with its internal lamp. So that give preference to models with a closed wiringOtherwise confusion will come;
Chandeliers for the glossy stretch ceilings should be invisible hidden wiring

If you acquired the fixture model has a power converter, then in any case, do not install it between the stretched canvas and the main ceiling. It is quite strongly heated during its work and needs to be cooled, but here due to the high integrity structures air movement is stopped completely. So think over for the unit a special niche where he can safely ventilated.

The most suitable lamp

What we choose a chandelier seems to be sorted for the stretch ceiling in terms of its design features, now for the bulbs.

At the wrong approach to their selection and subsequent operation can also damage the material fabric, so be careful:

  1. Incandescent lamps - the least successful variant. The efficiency of them only about three per cent, but the heat just tremendous. Because of it is possible to install only those samples cardinality index which does not exceed 60 watts. Plus more and the distance must be respected 250 mm. For most average apartments such conditions is simply not feasible;
Incandescent lamp is not suitable for suspended ceilings

  1. Halogen lamps also can not boast of its ideality. Although the rate of their efficiency and higher than that of the models with the filament, they are also more warm;
Halogen lamps must be maximally separated from the webs of the polyvinyl chloride or tissue

Halogen lamps must be maximally separated from the webs of the polyvinyl chloride or tissue

  1. Energy-saving lamps are designed for installation on the chandeliers suspended ceilings already much better. Moreover promote high efficiency and little heat energy release. But inside them is mercury, which may cause considerable problems in case of accidental damage to the glass capsule with their hands. In addition, these light sources can not be operated in rooms with high humidity;
Energy saving light bulb - an acceptable, but not ideal

  1. LED lamps - the best choice for lighting devices installed on the ceilings.

They have a number of advantages:

  • No heat, and therefore will not damage the fabric material, even if very close to his location;
  • Have high efficiency;
  • Are small. Saving space is always relevant to our apartments;
  • Their price is not hit your family budget;
  • Spot lighting model can be combined with chandeliers.

fastening methods

It used all three methods of fixing the chandeliers in the ceiling:

  1. on the hook. The most reliable and simple, as the fastening element is usually already provided and laid the builders, and also has the necessary liner conductors;
Hook for attaching the fixture

  1. On the mounting bracket. It comes complete and can withstand only small size lighting fixtures;

  1. On a cross mounting plate. There is already possible to fix medium-sized chandeliers.

Mounting on cross-shaped bar

As for the installation process, in all three cases, it is very similar.

His statement is as follows:

  1. Even before the installation of stretch ceiling in the selected location for the lighting device proceed as follows for each of the following:
  • In the first case we find the hook. If he is absent, the drill ceiling concrete slab, inserted into the plastic anchor it and then bought their own in-store special hook fastener;
Acquired in a specialty store hook

  • In the second case using screws and dowels fixed on the ceiling of the bar. The main thing is that its thickness does not exceed the distance from the concrete to further pull the web;
  • In the third case, all similar to the previous paragraph, but it is not about the bar, and on the a piece of plywood suitable size;
  1. Summing to point wiringIf it is not there yet;
  2. Now, after tightening and fixing the fabric in place of the chandelier mounting glue one or more, depending on the type of fixture, termokolets. They allow to locate the incision film or fabric;
