Put lights anywhere with this company's UL-listed, low-voltage wall sconces and installation kits.
February 01, 2007 by Rachel Cericola

You may not have skills, but Southwire wants to instill some confidence in you with new kits that will allow you to install wall sconces designed to work with the patented FlatWire, the Invisible Wire.

The new FlatWire Ready low-voltage wall lighting system is UL-listed and includes a wide range of decorator-style sconces and complete Add-A-Light installation kits.

The FlatWire Ready technology allows these low-voltage lighting fixtures to be mounted anywhere on walls or ceilings and connected to an existing electrical outlet without drilling holes, pulling electrical wires or using extension cords. Unlike conventional “round” wire, FlatWire is easily installed and can create a virtually invisible wiring system. Installation is completely safe for professionals and do-it-yourselfers.

Nearly 30 different FlatWire Ready lighting sconces are now available in a wide variety of decorator finishes and styles ranging from traditional to contemporary. Each FlatWire Ready Add-A-Light Low Voltage Kit accommodates up to two fixtures and includes connectors, a wall plate, transformer and 25 feet of low voltage FlatWire. The sconce fixtures use a 12-volt, 20-watt halogen bulb, which uses less energy than a 60-watt incandescent bulb but still gives about the same usable light output. The lights and kits can be purchased on the company’s Web site.
