FAQs Installing my chandelier
One of our most frequent questions we are asked is “what hook do I need and how do I install the chandelier?”
For the very light chandeliers and light fittings we have a range of hooks and fittings, each displaying the maximum weight load they can take – please take these calculations seriously they are for your assistance BUT ALWAYS load test before installing.
For chandeliers and light fittings over 5kg’s we would recommend the use of your ceiling joists to help accommodate the weight of the chandelier. For chandeliers up to 20kg open and closed bolt loops are appropriate, please see links below, as the weight of the chandelier increases so to does the size of the bolt loop and so as you increase over 20kgs you will move onto the heavy duty open and closed bolt loops.
Remember – you do not just weight load before installing but intermittently during the installation of the fixings to make sure they are correctly secured.
On occasion you may come across difficult to access ceilings i.e. under floor heating or concrete floors, whilst we cannot give detailed assistance as site visits have not been completed we may on occasion be able to source the specialist fixings required.
Once having installed via the joist you will want to ensure that the ceiling entry point is disguised and for this you will need one of our metal ceiling roses with strap or ceiling domes. You will need to customise your ceiling rose/dome by enlarging the centre hole to accommodate your chain and cable.
