 Service Options

 

 

 Split Services    

 For some situations it is nearly impossible to take down a chandelier

 so Imperial offers a detailed splitting service

 

 We pay attention to the pattern to find the best place to cut the medallion

 We do not use a table saw that randomly cuts the medallion in half

 By using a thin manual saw we take the time necessary to cut the

 medallion so it seamlessly goes back together in spite of loosing the

 thickness of the blade.  Here are a few pics of the process.

 Cutting Holes - Standard & Custom Sizes

 

 

 

 automatic hole cutter on a drill

 

 Most receptacle boxes are 3-3/4 inches

 If a medallion does not have a 3-3/4 inch hole we

 can drill a new one for you. 

 This is done with a hole cutter and a drill

 Just as a reminder the canopy does not go through the hole

 

 

 Precision hole cutting

 

 We do offer hole cutting for non standard sizes

 to accommodate special needs.

 

 This is done by hand for exacting precision

 

 Prices vary per size

 how to size a medallion

  Keeping within the  "golden rule of design" or Phi, they should be approximately 2/3rds larger

 than the widest part of the medallion.  Imperial is renowned for their large size & unique medallions.

 With all that being said it is what pleases you thus no rules rule !

 

 

  Any of our medallions can be made to a specific size.   This process is expensive but can be done

  for the discerning client or  larger scale commercial requests

 

 

 Design Idea:  How to Enlarge an Existing Medallion

 

 

          exclusive design from MartinRichardsDesign

 

  We all know that taking down the chandelier is difficult, so why not  just add an expansion ring to

 enlarge the existing Medallion without taking the fixture down.  Expansion rings offer a plain or

 decorative hollow circle that once installed will make any medallion appear larger and comply

 with the design principles of the "golden rule of design" (ie Phi)

 

 Apply the ring with the approved adhesive and use the spackling compound to fill any cracks. 

 Paint the flat drywall portion between the ring and your existing medallion either the same color

 or a different color.  You can even add rosettes in the gap area.  

 

 Examine our Rings @ www.imperialmedallions.com

 History of Medallions - Article

  learn about the history of the medallion

 Medallions were invented as ceiling fire barriers for candle and gas lights.

 As both a practical and decorative architectural element they had to be

  larger than the ceiling chandelier to provide protection.
