Infinity edge Infinity Edge We can supply masking strips to conceal the steel track when the panels are mounted ‘floating’ in a ‘raft’ configuration. Have a look at Infinity Edge here.

The strips have magnets attach which stick to the steel mounting track.
Sending us a plan to work from? Most architects and designers work from a ‘Reflected Ceiling Plan’. The plan would be made as if you were floating above the room, looking down at the ceiling and then the room below. Should you find this tricky to do, we can work from plans that look up at the ceiling from the floor below. Just make sure you let us know which you are using: Looking down (reflected), or, looking up (looking up). This wikiHow may help.
Tape measure How to measure a room accurately.
