Top Access (TA Series) Phantom Contour Projector for Art Lighting

The Phantom Contour Projector TA Series (top access ONLY design) is perfect for custom applications that require a smooth ceiling appearance and attic access is available. This model is used when access from below is not practical or you want to minimize the ceiling penetration and will be performing a custom cut template installation similar to the Wendel technique. Phantom Contour art projector lights are designed by a professional installer and have been engineered so a novice, do it yourselfer or qualified electrican can successfully illuminate art. The patented mounting method, simplified projector optical design and the custom cut template technique make this one of the most versatile  and awesome low voltage art lighting fixtures on the market today. By shaping the light to only the canvas, the art takes on a “Lighted from within” look that can only be seen to appreciate.
