How To Install Recessed Lighting?

When installing a suspended ceiling, it's important to think about the different elements that will have to be integrated. For example, recessed LED lights, a bathroom fan, a light fixture, speakers, etc.

Embassy ceilings are designed to support recessed LED lights without difficulty. However, if the weight of the item you wish to install exceeds the one of a LED recessed fixture, then it is recommended that it be fixed directly to the structure.

This article presents the 3 steps to a successful installation:

1. Determine the weight of the recessed lights or other elements to be installed on the ceiling.

2. Drill with a hole saw and install the panel.
