Installing a new chandelier in the room is a significant event, however, even before when it will be possible to fix it to the ceiling above it is necessary to work to bring all elements into a coherent whole, which is not always easy.Once in the store that sells chandeliers, a very excited woman came and told the seller, the impossibility of assembling purchased chandeliers, which she and her husband tried to collect about two hours, but have not been able to combine the mirror hole with the main part.This woman's eyes became even rounder when the seller within a few minutes the product collected.
So before you hang a chandelier, it must be properly collected.Fortunately, most of the design of the chandeliers are not so complicated, so proceed to the next part of the preparatory work.
Connection wires in the chandelier
Let's start with the most basic.To get started, answer the questions:
- How many wires coming out from the ceiling?
- How many keys to set the switch?
If only 2 wires, then forget about the possibility of inclusion of different parts of the chandelier series switch.Without the installation of a third wire fail.This means that all wires in the chandelier are collected into bundles of a certain color.If the luminaire is supplied 3-wire, and you need to include at the same time light, the chandelier, the wires going to the thread of the cartridge and the ground wire are collected in one bundle, while others are divided into 2 groups, and also twisted into bundles.
To work need a simple tool:
- small screwdriver.
- Screwdriver indicator on the battery.
- terminal block.
- spanner 12.
need for vein occurs during assembly chandeliers.Screwdriver indicator need to determine where to connect the wires.Pick it up, and in that moment, when you touch the sting screwdriver, and its upper part, it must be lit - this means that the device works.Now, holding the top edge of a screwdriver, tap the tip of the thread (or side contact) in the cartridge.With his free hand to touch the wires coming out with this cartridge.If you touch one of them must be lighted indicator.The wires of the same color will "land".
separated bundles of wires, insert into your chosen terminal block and secure it.
We hang a chandelier
consider two basic ways chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.
- on the hook.
- on mounting rail.
Previously, it was the most common method is to hang a chandelier, but now fading into the past.Yet even produced a lot of options chandeliers with such attachment.Most owners do not want to "junk", and prefer to take the same chandelier, what they had, but they can wait for a disappointment, as the Soviet plastic dries and breaks off the hook.In such a case would have to be fixed to the ceiling metal hook, but it may be another problem - do not get to close a large hole in the ceiling.Some craftsmen have solved this problem in its own way - to replace the plastic hook homemade, made of electrode welding.
complete with chandelier is a special fastening straps to properly prepare before you install it on the ceiling.Secure the screw nut on it so that their hats turned into the inside of the strap, but do not tighten them.Insert bar from the inside of the cup in the chandelier as it will be later installed by tightening decorative nuts all the way - the bar has to be flush with the edges of the cup chandeliers, or just below it.
After checking securely tighten the screws in the bracket so they are not spinning, or remove the chandelier can become a big problem.
when open switch on the wires should not be hard.
This means that when you touch the wire to the screwdriver indicator, it should not light up.In this case, a more accurate result will screwdriver, working without batteries.After power indicator should show the presence of voltage on the two wires.The remaining one is the "land", which must be connected to a common beam lamps.If your situation is not, it means that the switch does not suppress phase and ground.If you are connected to an incandescent lamp, or LED lights, you can and leave for housekeepers such a connection is not appropriate, as they can blink (it has been written above).
chandeliers Connection with power supply
Most people try to increase the brightness of its chandeliers, by replacing regular bulbs more powerful, resulting in a chandelier ceases to function.
to the transformer is not out of order, follow the total consumption of light - it should be lower than the output power of this device.
If your chandelier with halogen bulbs, the more often they are powered 12 V. In this case, the power connection is via a step-down transformer, which is always written to the output voltage.Where specified voltage 220V - is connected to the network, and the contacts with the designation of 12V - to the bulb.
All wires must be carefully insulated.
Fixing to concrete ceiling
puncher with protection against dust
In order to secure the retaining bar on a concrete ceiling, you need to attach it to the intended point of attachment, and make a mark on the ceiling, which will Drill holes.If the ceiling is made of hollow core slabs, it is necessary to check the thickness of the concrete in the place where it will be drilled, as it may happen that the dowel will be nothing to hold on to.You may have to step aside, or otherwise arrange the bar.In that case, if the change does not work, you can use anchors or lead into the cavity of a wooden plate rack, and fasten it with screws bar.To make this work you need:
- Punch (or hammer drill).
- pobeditovye drill diameter dowel.
- screwdriver (or a screwdriver).
- anchors (anchors or screws).
Depending on the chosen method of attachment, firmly fasten the bar, but do not overdo it, because it can be bent, if strongly to press.

Mounting tension ceilings to
mounting a suspended ceiling
To Stretch ceilings chandelier itself is not fixed, and care for pre-fixing.To the blade is not spoiled, it is attached to a special ring, and only then you can cut a hole.Then everything is the same scenario.
