Spatial Flats Installation Guide

Spatial Flats are part of our Lo-Vo Architectural Lighting System. Lo-Vo was designed to be easy and safe enough for any handy person to install. This guide helps walk you through your installation of a Spatial Flat system. Need additional help? We are just a phone call away!

Important Considerations

  • This installation guide was made with 30Watt Spatial Flats and the DMX600. 
  • Other DMX Drivers will be installed similarly.
  • 30Watt Warm White Spatial Flats are installed using 18/2 wire. 
  • All other Spatial Flats use 18/5 wire. This includes 30Watt RGBWW Spatial Flats, all 50Watt Spatial Flats, and all Spatial Flat Pendants. 
  • Spatial Flat Pendants and 50Watt Spatial Flats will be wired like the 30Watt RGBWW Spatial Pendants in the video/section below.

Who Can Install Spatial Flats? 

Any handy person can safely install these low-voltage fixtures. 

Tools Needed

Tools Needed

  • Wire Strippers
  • Wire Nuts
  • Micro Screwdriver


  • Adjustable Hole Saw Cutter

Wire Needed

  • We use 18/2 wire for the 30Watt Warm White Spatial Flats. 18 is the gauge and 2 is how many wires are in the jacket. We have seen no problem running lengths up to 150′. 
  • All other fixtures, including the 50Watt Warm White Flats, require 5 wires. We use 18/6 wire (one extra wire) because it is affordable and in a pull box.

How To Daisy Chain The Spatial Flats Together

*Note: There is a new version of Spatial Flats

The old version of Spatial Flats came with a whip in a T shape (as you will see in the following installation videos) for separate in-and-out runs.

The new version features a single whip, where you wire nut same color cables together to daisy chain four fixtures together.

Warm White Fixtures

RGBWW Fixtures

Daisy chaining the RGBWW version is similar to daisy chaining the Warm White version (so be sure to reference the above video). The only difference is that you will be connecting 5 wires instead of two. 

*This is also how you will wire all types of Spatial Flats (including 50Watt Warm White Spatial Flats) other than 30Watt Warm White Spatial Flats.

The Difference installing the larger 50Watt model

  30Watt 50Watt
Recommended Height 7’ -14’ 8′-20′
Recommended Spacing 6’-8’ Centers 6’-8’ Centers
Fixture Diameter 8″ 10″


  • The larger 50Watt model utilizes the same driver, but at half the fixture count. The 50Watt Spatial Flats have a maximum of two fixtures per run for a total of 8 fixtures when using the DMX600 driver.
