moveable drop ceiling led light panels
Install the LED fixture on the relocatable plug
I came up with this design after replacing t-
I have 12 fluorescent troffer in my kitchen with LED light fixtures.
I installed the new fixture in the same position as the Little Flower (
Installed correctly with ceiling box and hard
But the temperature and shape of the light are different enough to make things look weird.
I realized I had to change the position and number of lights I was installing until things didn\'t look so interesting.
So an adjustable solution is in order!
Note: Make sure you consult the local building code before starting this project.

Featured home, 1-2-20161. Flush-
Light weight LED lamps.
I\'m using 14 \"rectangular flush-
Hampton Bay Hill fixtures in Home Depot 2.
Power cord material.
It can be an old, broken fixture or extension cord.
These fixtures are 3-
So I made sure to use the right wires. 3. 3-End of plug.
You need these if you don\'t use the existing wires. 4. Small L-
Brackets and appropriate-sized screws.
You will attach them to the lamps and ceiling tiles.
The thick line will help with the connection of the tiles. 5.
Additional ceiling tiles.
Because of the mistake. 6.
Blade, enough for you to use sharp blades all the time! Ceiling tiles (
Anyway, the ones I\'m using
The blade is rough. 7+ Straight-
To control the quality of visible cutting, edges, spacing blocks, tape, line caps, etcWe will be cut from the front of the tile, so be careful to Mark and blade.
You can erase the pencil on the tile (
Ask me how I know! )
Be careful not to damage the surface when marking lines when purchasing.
Place the fixtures on the ceiling tiles. Trace closely.
You can take more material as needed but also
Big holes are harder to fix.
As far as L-is concerned, you have some good room for maneuver
But you may lose the visual appeal in the finished product.
One day I might add borders or something for a more complete look, but I\'m happy with the results as of now. Use a straight-
The edge cuts off the straight part of the profile.
Cut the surface of the tile with a fresh blade.
This will help ensure a uniform look.
Take your time, cut straight.
Place the straight edge on the \"good\" side of the mark and let any errors happen on the waste side.
For the curve, I found it better to release it slowly.
The first hand, shallow cut, then \"see\" the rest of the curve with a plunge motion \".
Once you cut all the way, finish the cut carefully to release the center part.
If you make multiple tiles, you can use it as a template for the next tile.
Once you confirm that the fixture will fit your cut
Out, set the fixture in the tile to the correct level (
No matter what you want).
I fixed the lamps and tiles above the table top with two pieces of waste wood to avoid scratching the lamp cover.
Mark and drill L-holes carefully
Put the bracket in the fixture.
I used two brackets to allow some (unwanted)
The fixtures move axial, but since they are light enough, my ceiling is low enough that I can easily adjust them once the fixtures are in place.
3 brackets can solve this problem easily.
Once the bracket is attached to the fixture, you can use the short thick-
Attach the bottom of the bracket to the threaded screw on the tile.
This connection is not important because gravity will keep the fixture on the tile in the right position and the bracket will prevent it from falling off, but it helps to move the tile and set it in place, so I recommend it.
Again: please consult your local building code before wiring.
You need a socket that is placed above the ceiling.
Because you make your own power cord, you can make a socket in one central position, leaving enough for all your fixed tiles.
Be careful when routing coordinates to avoid dropping any sharp in the ceiling grid.
Connect each fixture properly with a wire of sufficient length for easy access to the socket.
This will allow you to move the fixed tiles as needed for optimal lighting.
You can now place fixtures wherever you like.
Be careful with wires.
Test different configurations.
Without enough light, you can easily make more light.
There are many different sizes and shapes for LED fixtures.
The most compatible with this item will include a separate base and cover and will be very lightweight.
Enjoy, thanks for reading! -
