Have you ever wondered, how to install a LED Mirror on an existing Wall?
We have spoken to many, many, many electricians in the past. I mean a lot.
For the dry way, we realized the easiest way to fish a wire is using a magnepull (https://www.amazon.com.au/Magnepull-XP1000-LC-Wire-Pulling-System/dp/B00MW9A8AY) or magbit (https://www.amazon.com.au/MAGBIT-MAG-777-inch-Fish/dp/B005M29JN0). These two tools are available online and they will definitely help you with wire fishing and even go through nogging.
We always add a recessed wall point (https://www.bunnings.com.au/repelec-recessed-white-single-gang-wall-poi…) to the wire. We always treat the hole where the wire comes out from the wall to have a finished look. At the end of the day, we always treat the mirror like an appliance, for example, TV, Oven and so. If you see a LED mirror this way, it will definitely simplify the concept of the installation.
Now that we have the wire sorted!
How do we prepare the Wall?
We definitely want the wall to be able to withstand the weight of the mirror. Most of the house walls in Australia are made of pinewood and plasterboard. The usual anchor might not be able to withstand the weight of the mirror. Recently we came across a very useful tool, Gripit Fixings (https://www.gripitfixings.com.au/). They have many options depending on the weight of the products that you are trying to hang.
We tend to use the one with higher weight capacity just to be on the safe side.
