Note before Installing

  1. All of these steps are crucial for a successful installation, so don't cut any corners!

When you are installing a new fixture, make sure that the power is off and then remove any old fixtures from above. Be careful when taking out these parts as they may require special tools to disassemble them for re-sale or recycling properly.

  1. Don’t discard any of the packaging until you are sure that you have all of the parts and the fittings.
  2. Before starting, turn off power at junction box where pipes will be connected so as not cause any accidents if something goes wrong!



📢Unpack mirror and structural frame.

Do not lay the mirror on the tile or concrete surface before installation. Make sure that you protect your mirrors corners with packaging material to prevent chipping in carrying.

📢Take care when drilling pilot holes to avoid hitting any pipes or wiring that may be hidden beneath the surface.
