Retrofitting Lighting Systems

Provided By:

Retrofitting lighting systems in existing homes can be a tricky task, requiring homeowners or electricians to drill holes in walls, pull wires through tight spaces or use unsightly extension cords. But FlatWire is about to change all that. Manufactured by Carrollton, Ga.-based Southwire Co., FlatWire is exactly what its name describes - a paper-thin, low-voltage wiring system consisting of copper conductors (thin copper wires) encased and insulated in a polymer film.

FlatWire can be installed directly on the surface of walls or ceilings and used to connect low-voltage lights and audio speakers, as well as voice, data and video devices. For instance, homeowners can use the wire when installing a wall-mounted flat-screen TV. The FlatWire system connects to standard outlets using an adapter. Once installed, the wiring can be painted or wallpapered so it's virtually invisible.

The only caveat is that the wiring system works only with FlatWire Ready lighting devices. The good news - about 30 different types of lighting sconces are currently available, and more are on the way. In addition, kits with all required components, including fixtures, connectors, spray adhesive, mesh tape (to disguise the wire) and 25 feet of FlatWire - are also available. Lights are priced from about $50; two-light kits start at about $200. For more information: http://www.flatwireready.com or 770-832-4242.
