Our LED Light Pockets are extremely slim being only 14 mm thick. The inner sheet – the light source - is etched to give the optimum light output and refract the LED light outwards towards the observer. There is an even spread of light with no dark shadows to ensure a crisp graphic presentation. The beveled edge design makes the front face brighter than the reverse which is an important consideration for those sitting in the office directly behind the display who could find the display too bright.
There is no complicated wiring. The kits are supplied complete with a 5mtr long DC Power Cable and a transformer with a three-pin plug. Simply plug in to power up the display. Energy efficient and economical, the illuminated posters use a fraction of the electricity used by traditional light boxes. Kits that hang floor to ceiling are supplied with almost invisible clear plastic coated stainless steel cables as an additional safety feature. The Light Pockets simply clip onto the cables and are locked into place using small Allen screws. The pockets can be positioned at any height on the cable.
The LED Light Pockets are “low to no maintenance” and have a life expectancy of 40,000 to 60,000 hours. However please be aware that as with all LED’s the brightness will diminish over time. After 3 years 80-85% original brightness. 5 years 70-75%. It is recommended to install timer switches to run the unit during the hours of darkness and dusk to ensure maximum longevity of brightness.
Changing the Graphics
Graphics can be easily changed within seconds. For graphics that are changed on a regular basis and cost is more important (estate agents) then the more affordable solution will be to use fine quality 90-120gsm satin finish paper with no watermark. However we recommend Back Lit (sold here) or Dura Trans paper for best results. These can be printed on standard office inkjet and laser desktop printers/copiers.
