Spatial Flats Installation Guide

•The following installation guide is for the standard 30Watt size. The 50Watt model is installed similarly. The differences will be listed below.

•It is important to note that all Spatial Flats require the use of 5 conductor wire except for the 30Watt Warm White Spatial Flats that use 2 conductor wire.

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.
