Lighted mirrors include two components: a metal chassis and a mirror face. The chassis mounts to the wall through mounting holes situated near the corners of the chassis. The mounting holes make it easy to mount the chassis to a structurally sound surface such as wall studs. After the chassis is mounted and hardwired, the mirror face is hung on the front of the chassis.
The overall 2″ depth of the lighted mirror includes the 1.75″ chassis plus the .25″ mirror. The chassis features a white powder-coated finish to complement your room’s color scheme, and is designed to be surface mounted to your wall. However, if you would like to recess the lighted mirror, ensure the mirror face is proud of the wall and only the chassis is recessed.
A 1″ clearance is needed above the top edge of the mirror in order to hang the mirror properly. Additionally, maintain .25″ on the left, right, and bottom of the mirror to allow for installation tolerances.
The chassis comes ready to hardwire for 120V-240V. The power whip should come through the back of the unit for the hardwire connection. A 36″ long power whip can be prepared 12″ down from the top of the mirror and centered from left to right. A quick disconnect is included so the wires can easily be connected. No J-Box is required.
Width x Height Orientation
Since the mirror hangs on the chassis, it cannot be mounted sideways. All lighted mirrors must be mounted in the width x height orientation indicated.
