Lighting suspended ceiling, in any case has a lot of options, but the structure of translucent vinyl fabric significantly increases these opportunities.Ceilings with LED backlight, in turn, may be covered flexible conductive bus disposed thereon with LEDs or the lighting elements arranged on a transparent tape.
Installation of suspended ceilings with LEDs

- Such a device is very useful when small areas of installation of PVC, since the amount of PVC more than 20m2 on a mirror wrinkles appear because the clip can not withstand the weight of the cloth, and it begins to sag .In such situations usually use additional fixing - is the chandelier in the center of the ceiling, which can also serve as an additional lock.
- stretch ceiling with LED lights, wedge method at the moment is probably the most popular method of installation of such a device.The principle of fixation is as follows: polyvinyl chloride moldings is pushed into the groove and then wedged special strap.
- Baguette with wedge fastening can be mounted not only on the wall, but the ceiling, only in this case the basic ceiling should be smooth, as suspension device will repeat its form .After mounting a baguette cloth trim strip from the bottom closed.
- If you decide to make their own ceilings illuminated diode, harpoon way, then you will not work, because the seating harpoon can be welded to polyvinyl chloride only at the factory, on what to do forsize and configuration of the ceiling pattern.Castle on baguette therefore called harpoon, because it acts like a spear or a fishing hook - enters into the groove, there is decompressed and secured by the tabs.
- Despite the high cost and the waiting time of the order, harpoon method of installation of suspended ceilings is considered to be the best and most reliable .Cloth, fixed in such a way can be removed for replacement of electrical wiring or to dry, if you have filled in the neighbors.Needless vinyl banner will not suffer.
Installation of LED ribbon
Council.To select the power supply you need to know voltage LED strip and power of one meter lighting device.For example, a five-meter ribbon on a moschnost7,2Vt 12V / m, then 5 × 7,2 = 36W.It should take into account the safety factor of 1.25.So 1,25 × 36 = 45W.That is, for a five-meter tapes with parameters you need to 45W power supply.
- If LED lighting suspended ceilings installed on the ceiling, will have several colors, you need a controller, and if you want to adjust the brightness, you can also add a dimmer switch.
- LED strips are usually connected in series, but limited in length to 12 m, but when you buy a lighting device you better clarify this from the seller as possible any changes.

- LED light for stretch ceiling does not tolerate sharp bends, so the installation tape is better to work with an assistant.To connect, you can use the connector or solder short-term, but do not forget about the polarity.
- Once completed the entire installation Rope, connect it to the power supply and if necessary, switch off the controller and only then turn on the network.If all goes well, then you can begin the installation of PVC ceiling.
Council.Although you are familiar with the methods of installation of PVC fabric - this is still part of the job best left to professionals, and it's not because you can not cope with this kind of work, but because you do not have the necessary equipment, and more precisely, the thermal gas gun, which necessarilyused during installation.Your objective should be to LED lights for suspended ceilings has been installed correctly and you can choose the method of installation of the web.
