FAQ: How Do I Install a Long Fixture in a Straight Line?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Installing long, straight lines of light often frustrate contractors and electricians because no matter how precise the measurements, posts can appear slightly off, and disrupt the slim design.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="20206" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-suspension/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our clients have come to us with this and we're proud to say we've developed a solution in response to the ongoing issue. We've created new ceiling posts for our suspended lighting designs that have slots for adjustment, even after installation. Ceiling posts can slide and resolve the issue of being millimeters out of alignment.   Aside from the convenience of adustability, our new ceiling grippers offer enough space inside the unit to make local wire connections for even more simple installations. This applies to remote power supplies, offering an extremely minimal look to the fixture.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17721" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17846" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Read More FAQ's" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Ffrequently-asked-questions%2F|title:Frequently%20Asked%20Questions||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Browse All Lighting" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2F|title:Frequently%20Asked%20Questions||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

FAQ: What is the Maximum Length of the THIN System?

Oct
23

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Many clients ask the limits of the THIN System for custom projects. For many cases, longer runs of THIN Suspensions, THIN Multiples and custom shapes are used to bring dramatic design in a minimal silhouette to a space's design.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="19822" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]The THIN System is essentially limitless in that sections can be added to elongate fixtures at run any incremental length of 24 IN or 36 IN segments. Users can also request custom-cut segments for shorter lengths.   To power the system limitlessly, power cords would be dropped every few sections of your fixture. With remote power supplies, this has a simple solution of locating all of your power supplies (if you exceed 96W) in an accessible closet or wall panel within 50 feet from the fixture. The ceiling's footprint is minimal and reduced as much as possible. For local power supplies, users would install junction boxes over the locations of the fixture where power would need to be added for the continuous run. Fixtures can be powered from one end, both ends, or in the middle of the fixture to accomodate existing junction box locations depending on the fixture's length. For local setups, we offer ceiling canopies large enough to hold 60W and 96W power supplies.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="19826" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]These application requirements apply to the entire THIN System, including THIN Multiples, THIN Suspensions, THIN Surface Mounts, and custom shapes made with THIN light segments and hardware.   For help with custom lengths, long runs, or unique shapes, please contact our team of specialists who can provide made-to-fit solutions for unique spaces.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Browse the THIN Suspension" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2Fthin-suspension%2F|title:THIN%20Suspension||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Explore More FAQ's" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Ffrequently-asked-questions%2F|title:THIN%20Suspension||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]We chatted with Amy Ilias, the owner and resident of The Lavender Ghost, to tell us more about the transformation of her home.  

Tell us about The Lavender Ghost.

The house is a manifestation of a visceral shared vision that Jim and I had immediately when we first saw the property. It looked quite different than it does now- lots of deep, saturated color, dark floors, outdated bathrooms, a gutted kitchen. We wanted the space to breathe- to bring attention back to the bones, scale and architecture of the rooms. Our intention was to create space for artwork and furniture but not have any one thing dominate the space.  

How long did the project take to complete?

After two years the inside is complete from a renovation perspective. It will continue to evolve because we continually reimagining the space. We are now doing extensive work on the exterior.  

What were some obstacles you overcame with the project?

The house is 200 years old, but the biggest issues that we had were in the dining room- a 2003 extension that was built very carelessly. It had a lot of rot, structural issues, lack of insulation, and improperly installed windows. We have addressed all except for the windows which eventually need to be replaced. The older part of the house has held up well considering the age. We did have a plaster ceiling fall down and a mysterious leak that took forever to track.  

Why did you choose Juniper fixtures for your home?

We chose Juniper to light large paintings on 2 walls. We loved the form and function- it is designed so precisely and the spread perfectly illuminated the large pieces that needed direct light. We live with modern, antiques, and vintage. The Juniper lighting fit in so perfectly. (If we could, it would be in every room!)[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="19917" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-suspension/"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Entering the living room, the space features a large painting by Jim Denney, the home's other owner. The painting is illuminated by Juniper's THIN Suspension light using 3 connected segments. The segments feature magnetic connections, which enable easy installation and the ability to freely rotate toward the painting to properly showcase the artwork. Adorning the hallway on the home's second floor, the slender line of light again provides a wayfinding glow to softly illuminate the path and another large piece of artwork.   The THIN Modular Lighting System, designed by Peter Bristol, offers a way to create custom architectural lighting in a variety of shapes, sizes, and orientations. The system's 1/2-inch brass tubing creates a truly minimal design aesthetic without being obtrusive to features in a space like artwork and showstopping architectural elements.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Browse the THIN Suspension" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2Fthin-suspension%2F|title:THIN%20Suspension||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Discover More Modern Lighting Projects" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fmodern-lighting-projects-installations%2F|title:Modern%20Lighting%20Projects%20%26%20Installations||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
