I just heard about a law suit because the dining room fixture was nose height and some woman walked into it when they were moving in.
Let's hope she and her lawyer get hit by a bus on the way to the courtroom.

It's my company policy to tie up any fixture wich would normally hang under 7'.

So basicly all of them except for foyer lights.

We hang all dining and breakfast fixtures at 66" AFF also. We always raise them up to keep people from walking into them and to keep the flooring guys from wacking them when they walk through with rolls of carpet.
