ACRYLITE® LED light guiding edge lit sheet
ACRYLITE® LED light guiding edge lit acrylic, with its innovative performance capabilities, eliminates the need to recess signage into building walls, saving considerable construction costs and installation time.
ACRYLITE® LED light guiding edge lit sheets are formulated to allow light from the edge of the acrylic sheet to brighten the entire surface.
- Uniform illumination
- No visible contours of light sources
- High Luminous intensity
- No surface structuring, etching, or printing needed
- Patented technology
Features & benefits
ACRYLITE® LED light guiding edge lit is the ideal material for very slim, large-scale luminous displays and picture frames, luminous ceilings and walls, city light posters and many other uses. Luminous signs can be built with one or two light-emitting sides.
Evenly illuminating a transparent surface in any color with whatever LED color is chosen. There is no need to use a reflector or diffuser in transparent applications so the light can exit both sheet surfaces. This transparent, colorless material is offered in various grades and thicknesses. The higher the grade, the further the light travels through the sheet when lit up.
How It Works
When LED strip modules are used at the edges of the sheet, the acrylic glows uniformly across its two perpendicular surfaces. The embedded clear light-diffusing particles cause the light to diffuse forward for bright, uniform illumination. These specially optimized diffuser particles deflect light rays much more effectively than other diffuser particles. This causes light rays to exit the sheet surface of the light guide at a much more vertical angle. Total internal reflection in the light guide is suppressed, allowing light rays to exit the sheet via the surfaces in a controlled manner. This effect provides the uniformly glowing surface. Our technical guide outlines how to use the material and provides great visuals.
