Project 110 - Large Infinity Star Ceiling.

Starscape was contacted by M18 Lanes - a bowling alley and lounge in Stanmore, north London, and asked to supply and install around 170m2 of Infinity panels. As we’re based in North Northumberland travelling anywhere to install usually involves the best part of a day’s travel in each direction, so it's not a service we can normally offer.

In this case however we made an exception, and took the opportunity to record the process.

Infinity track

Room before

The space to fill with stars. This is very different to the home cinema environment which is the
main market for the Infinity system.

First section of track

The first length of steel mounting track in place.

Track with fibre optic tails

A good photo showing the steel channel with the fibre optic carrier tails threaded through the access
holes. These pairs of holes also provide anchor locations for the safety tethers on the rear of the
panel, and of course can be used by speaker or other cables.

More track

Lots of carrier tails. These will connect to the shorter tails at the back of each panel in due course.

Panel cut-out needed

We had to make provision for Air Conditioning units, downlights, fire alarms, columns and
numerous other fittings.

Some panels installed

It's always nice to work with the light sources turned on.

More panels and tails installed

Here and there you can see bright spots of light dangling beneath the ceiling. These are the
ends of feeder tails, ready for connection to their respective panels.

Panels with cut-outs

Stars and downlighters

The diagonal line running from left to right in the top half of the image is where there was a
change in ceiling height. The edges of the panels here were fitted with an optional black edge trim.

Work in progress

The downlighters in this area are also fibre optics, but instead of single fibres each fitting is
illuminated by dozens of fibres.

About half way through the installation


Air conditioning units to cut around


More panels installed


Only a ferw panels left to do.


M18 lanes star panels


Almost finished


Other trades were still working when we left so a ‘finished’ photo was not possible.

However, M18 Lanes are commissioning some professional photos so WATCH THIS SPACE.
