How to Install Durastrong Fluorescent Light Diffusers
Repacorp’s decorative light diffusers measure 23 3/4” x 47 3/4” and are sized to drop into a standard 2’ x 4’ fluorescent light frame. Newer light fixtures maybe a different size and our panel must be cut to fit into the light fixture. Cutting our Durastrong® plastic is easy! All you have to do is make a hefty score with a utility knife, then break the panel on your score. If you scored the panel enough, it will break. If you did not score it enough, it simply will not break.
Using a step ladder to reach the fluorescent light, pull tabs to unlock frame as if to change the bulbs.
The frame is hinged on one side. Gently lower frame, and remove from the ceiling.
Note: Not all diffusers have spring clips
Slide existing diffuser out of frame.
Caution: the old diffuser might be very brittle or have sharp edges.
Tip: Use the old light diffuser as a template for cutting new decorative light diffuser. Place old diffuser on top of your new Durastrong® diffuser, adjusting for best crop of design. Trace around old diffuser onto new decorative light panel for a cut/score line.
Durastrong® can be scored with a handheld cutting tool. Heavily score printed side of the panel several times.
With image side out, facing toward the room, slide new decorative panel into the light frame.
Attach the frame back onto the hinged side and swing into place and lock. Turn on the fluorescent light.
