Preparing the Ceiling

Cutting the Rough Opening
For Frame and Wallboard Construction:
Cut wallboard and re-move necessary sections of joist. Add as needed for support:
A) framing members,
B) double members on each side and perpendicular to ceiling joist,
C) Over the top to hold electrical box ( see drawing )
For Suspended Ceiling System
Locate the Center point of the Dome. You can find the center of the dome by using strings.
Once you have found the center point, drill or cut the proper size hold in the dome for any light fixture. When installing into a suspended ceiling system, Use a wood block, into which the suspension wires are secured. Screw from the inside of the dome through wood block that is positioned on the topside of the Dome.
Frame and Wallboard Construction:
Apply an even bead of polyurethane Multi-purpose (MP-25-ADH) (Adhesive/filler) on the inside of the Dome rim. Raise the Dome into position, and secure into the rough opening framing, driving non-corrosive fasteners(trim screws) up the rim, through the ceiling and into the framing. Slightly countersink fasteners, so that you can cover the heads with adhesive filler for a finished appearance.
If installing a light fixture, you must support the fixture with additional framing that is properly attached to the ceiling or suspended ceiling support system.
Note: Light Fixture is supported by the framing, not by the DOME.
Use non-corrosive screws or Nails.
Domes can be secure into Sheetrock of Wood
Drill from the front side.
Insert screws through dome into wallboard or framing.
Fill edges, nail heads and any other minor imperfections with MP-25-ADH (adhesive/filler).
After adhesive of filler has dried, sand any minor surface imperfections. Finish with any quality latex or oil based paint for a beautiful appearance.
DO NOT USE LACQUER PAINTS.
These sizes are approximate, please refrain from cutting the hole until you have actual dome for exact measurement. Please note that actual rough opening depth depends on installation of wood support to hang the ceiling dome.
