Plasterspot indicators have been developed to simplify the installation of ceiling downlights, wall sockets and loads more. Plumbers, builders and electricians find many needs for a Plasterspot indicator. They remove the need for increasingly complex drawings in the area of lighting installation.

Positioning of downlights has become something of an art form. Circular, diagonal, curved and sloping areas are not uncommon and downlights are increasingly required to be carefully positioned to suit the layout of the completed room. Thirty to sixty downlights in a domestic installation is common. In commercial reception areas, offices etc the number is far greater. This causes great difficulty for the tradesman once a ceiling has been plastered, since there is no indication available to show the original positions of the hidden cross ceiling joists, water and electrical feeds etc.
