LED custom backlighting offers a stylish means to illuminate compact spaces and large areas in retail stores, product displays, signs, architectural spaces, exhibit displays, and much more. LED backlighting solutions have become more popular among designers for many commercial and residential applications. These highly customizable light fixtures can be used to improve aesthetic appeal in a broad spectrum of different applications.
Successful backlighting is both part science and part art. It is the convergence of these two disciplines that makes backlighting lighting design as challenging and beautiful as it is. Both 2D and 3D forms can be imagined and developed with popular custom backlighting products, such as LED light panels, flexible sheets, and lattice. Whether the goal is to create straight edges, circular, or organic 2D shapes; cylindrical forms; arches; or boxy cubic forms; choosing the right type of backlighting can help accomplish any of these and elicit the emotional response desired.
Custom backlighting is incredibly versatile and can be customized to fit design specifications, making them suitable for meeting nearly any design goal. LED backlighting offers an ideal lighting solution for product displays, walls, ceilings, counters, stairs, and other areas. Due to the slim size of many LED backlighting products including light panels and flexible sheets, LED backlighting is perfect for illuminating narrow areas that may not otherwise get a lot of light while also easily illuminating large surface areas equally well.
While some types of backlighting products may be used without any surface materials to diffuse the light, many more types of backlighting applications are used to illuminate popular translucent surface materials such as Duratrans, vinyl, fabric, onyx/stone, glass, acrylic, and resin. Light panels may be used alone or with surface materials, and sheet or lattice type backlighting are often used exclusively with surface materials.
Backlighting has become especially popular in commonly well-lit commercial structures, such as casinos, retail stores, hotels, corporate buildings, and theaters, to name a few. Typical spaces that rely on LED backlighting may include:
If you’re interested in investing in high quality LED backlights, LEDCONN offers a variety of options to fit your needs. Which solution is most appropriate for your specific application will depend on factors dictated by the nature of the application requirements & dimensions, structural design or installation environment limitations, and the minimal airgap (setoff distance) required by the product, among other factors. Our product line includes:
These acrylic light panels are the perfect choice for compact spaces. Featuring a sleek profile design, they offer smooth, even illumination, especially for compact spaces. Our LUXFIT LED solutions have been LEDCONN’s most popular LED backlight solution for more than a decade because they offer strong yet comfortable illumination for any application or space.
This uniformity is due to Dot Pattern Technology, in which reflective dots are either laser-etched or silk-screened onto the LED panel. The dots are smaller and spaced further apart closer to the LEDs and become larger and closer together the further away they are from the LEDs. This distribution creates the illusion that the surface of the panel itself is evenly glowing, rather than having brighter areas directly over the LEDs and darker areas further away from the light source.
Because light panels can be cut into virtually any 2D shape imaginable, designers can use decorative light panel backlighting in a myriad of ways to enhance and add accents to their personal and professional spaces. Some uses of acrylic light panels include:
These cuttable LED sheets are incredibly thin and flexible, making them ideal for both indoor and outdoor projects that may require a bendable and field modifiable light solution. LUXFLEX LED sheets can be tiled for larger projects or cut into small sections through a simple connector. Some of LUXFLEX’s other benefits include:
LUXFLEX cuttable LED sheets provide the added versatility of on-site modification and greater surface area coverage, which products like LUXFIT light panels are not as suited to provide.
Our LUXMESH LED lattice lighting solution is ideal for backlighting large graphics and light boxes placed on walls or ceilings. It is available in custom lengths and colors and capable of contouring simple curves. LUXMESH is particularly bright with a strong color display but remains incredibly energy efficient with a long lifespan. Plus, lattice is particularly easy to install on walls with large surface areas to be illuminated.
At LEDCONN, we take creative lighting solutions seriously. We maintain an Underwriters Laboratory (UL) listing, Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliance, and stringent quality assurance practices for all of our products. All of our LED products come with a manufacturer’s warranty: LUXFIT (3 years), LUXFLEX (3 years), and LUXMESH (2 years).
