The star ceiling is an innovative lighting effect that allows you to create the illusion of a star field on the ceiling. This effect is achieved using fiber optic threads that shine at one end; This is the end that is visible on the ceiling surface. When hundreds of such end-illuminated fiber optic cores are randomly assembled on the ceiling, they resemble the effect created by the twinkling stars at night.
These ceilings are popular today and provide unmatched aesthetic appeal to the children’s room, bedroom, mini home theater, relaxation area, etc. Long before the concept of a star ceiling was popularized in homes around the world, these lighting effects were used in hospices, cancer treatment centers, casinos, amusement parks, conference rooms, auditoriums, hallways, etc. In fact, this effect can be created even on floors and walls, and not only on ceilings.
How are they installed?
A typical installation process begins when the customer chooses the exact density of the star field effect on the selected ceiling. The client can also ask his installer or designer to incorporate the constellation patterns in the star field effect. If the ceiling is small, these effects are often not recognized. Consequently, the constellation effect is best incorporated in very large or very high ceilings.
It is imperative that these stars be established randomly, so that they are very reminiscent of a natural night sky, in which there are also several dark spots. To achieve this effect, installers generally set 3-4 stars per square inch. This number can be increased according to individual tastes and preferences.
What is the light source commonly used for stellar ceilings?
The light source depends mainly on whether the star ceiling is a kit ready to install or a non-standard ceiling. If it is a kit, it is likely that the light source is a low-power quartz halogen light source. However, if it is a semi-non-standard or non-standard ceiling, the light source can be halogen quartz or HID. However, LED light sources are the best option because they have a long life, consume less energy and generate very little heat, which makes the ceiling safe. For LED ceiling lights, a 5 to 12 V power supply is usually sufficient.
There are certain companies that offer fiber optic solutions that can be contacted for ceiling field requirements. These companies are also dedicated to other advanced technologies such as artificial vision lighting.
These companies are better prepared to solve their front design tasks. In addition, the star ceiling can be designed to have a special shooting star or the effect of a twinkling star.
