Derek Marshall Lighting Installation Procedures
Please note: Installation of electrical fixtures by other than a licensed electrician is entirely at your own risk. Common sense is the primary requirement.
First order of business: Make sure the power is turned off to the wall or ceiling boxes before starting to work on them. This means turned off at the electrical panel, not simply turned off at the switch which controls the lights. Should the switch be accidentally wired the wrong way (it happens), it is possible for there to be a hot wire in the box even with the switch in the off position.
Pendant lights follow a similar procedure which will vary depending on the number of lights, method of hanging and other matters. Complete instructions will be included in your shipment.
