Good to know:
Q: Can fibers be installed in sauna ceiling?
Answer: Yes they can. Above the sauna heater/stove it is recommended to cover the fibers either with crystals or sauna stove lens. When crystals are used, the weakest link is the glue used in the crystal and it is heat resistant up to 130°C. The crystal can withstand pretty high temperatures. The crystals are originally meant for the thicker 1,5 mm fibers. If you’d like extra crystals you can also use the thinner fibers. You can put for example one, two or even three of those in one crystal. The hole size of the fitting piece needs to be increased if you put more fibers in but that should be no problem for a handyman.
Q: Are fibers cutable?
A: Yes they are and it is common to cut some or all of them. During installation bring the fibers 10-15 cm below the ceiling paneling and apply a little bit of glue on the topside of the panel around the fiber. Finally, cut the fibers on level with ceiling by using round-cutting cutter (flat cutters tend to press and damage the end of especially the thicker fibers). It is usually recommendable to leave the fibers somewhat evenly long for the whole project so that the starlit sky looks evenly lit. 1 meter long fibers are brighter than 5 meter long fibers.
Information on product images:
The sauna in the first image is 1,8 m x 2,4 m = 4,3 m2 and there is a 100-piece set in the sauna.
You can find more information about the project on an article made by Iltalehti 🙂
Bedroom starlit sky has been made with a 156-piece fiber set. With this 100-piece set you can achieve similar end result but there will be fewer stars.
Optical fiber is either an end-to-end or a side-lighting product. End-to-end lighting models have a coating that directs the light towards the other end of the fiber. Side-lighting models do not have this coating which is why the fibers will also light up from the side. Side-lighting fibers are used for example in situations such as when lighting curtains are created with optical fibers. Starlight sets by Ledtek are end-to-end lighting models. On the enchanting video below you can see how the fibers direct the light towards the other end. The video has been recorded in Finland and there are 316 fibers in this particular project.
