Picture lights - bring beautiful memories into focus
A day at the seaside with the family, your child’s first day at school or your wedding day. These are all moments that you want to remember forever and picture lights highlight the importance of these snapshots perfectly.
How are picture lights installed?
Generally speaking, picture lights are installed like a normal ceiling light or wall light. The first step should always be to take the fuse out for your own safety. After loosening the screws on the lustre terminal, you can connect the wires. Then attach the picture light to the wall with suitable screws and put the fuse back in. If you are not confident with installing the picture light on your own, ask an electrician for help.
Our specialist consultants are happy to help with any installation questions that you may have. You can find their contact details below.
Tip: To ensure that your image is displayed perfectly, place the picture light a few centimetres above the centre of your photo or painting. For larger pictures, it may be necessary to install more than one picture light. Please keep in mind: If glass is involved, it should be anti-glare to avoid unwanted reflections appearing when you switch on your picture light.
What lighting technology is used?
In most cases, picture lights work with LEDs. This is because LEDs offer many advantages such as their compact design. It enables the lights to be kept slim and subtle, thus ensuring that the focus is always on the object that they are illuminating.
