Our Direct Mount panels are 4'x4' in size, modular, and can be installed directly to the ceiling. We start with a 1" thick acoustic tile, harden the edges, and wrap it in a quality black linen fabric. We then wire the panel with 56 fiber optic strands in a random pattern.
Each star panel system includes a high quality LED light source. What sets us apart from other companies is our light source and our ability to limit the amount of moving parts. Each panel will have a fiber bundle leader coming from it that will run back to the LED light source location. A single light source can accomodate 6 panels and just pushes light from one end to the other. It's really simple and unlike the other companies that have a very limited capability light source in EACH panel causing inconsistent lighting and provides many points of failure.
Our LED light sources (Illuminators) twinkle at 3 different speeds, come with a RF remote control, and the light can be dimmed. Just plug it into a standard 120v outlet. Control it with the included RF remote or control the outlet by a switch in the room.
Start off with a Direct Mount Star Panel System - 4x4. That will give you one panel and the required LED light source. If you want a 4x8 star ceiling you need one more 4x4 panel so you will want the Add-on Star Panel - 4x4. If you want a 8x8 size you will need one system and 3 add-on panels. The links are below.
Custom sizes are available so please call and we are happy to discuss your project details and options.
