Linear Lighting Systems For Display Illumination

Fiber optic light tubes for cabinet & display illumination

Fiber optic light tubes provide a versatile method to give a general wash of light and can be either easily hidden from view or finished to become an integral part of a display case.

They consist of a metal tube which holds end emitting fibers at close spacings to give an even light. The points of light can be staggered if desired to cover a wider area.

Light Tubes are available in three profiles - 32mm (1.26"), 38mm (1.5") and 52mm (2.05") diameters - as shown below. Typical spacings for the fiber tails are between 20mm (0.79") and 50mm (2").

Our range of Light Tubes are made to order, to the sizes you specify, and are normally custom painted to match their surroundings. They can be also be supplied in raw aluminum or polished stainless steel.

Features & Specifications

Manufactured from round aluminum extrusion, our fiber optic light tubes are available in 3 diameters; 32mm (1.26"), 38mm (1.5") and 52mm (2.05").

They can be custom painted any RAL color to match your specification or can be supplied in raw finish. They are also available in polished stainless steel to special order.

Fiber points are installed along the length of the tube at spacings specified. The points can either be in one line or can be staggered to allow them to cover a wider area.

Light Tube Common Ends

Light Tubes can be supplied with either standard 30mm (1.2") oror mini 12.5mm (0.49") or 14mm (0.55") common ends. Where a mini common end is used, a 30mm (1.2") adaptor, as shown below, is required to fit a standard illuminator.

Mini common ends allow for more than one independently removable tube to be connected to a illuminator and require a smaller hole to pass through for easier installation. A maximum of three 12.5mm (0.49") mini common ends and two 14mm (0.55") mini common ends can be connected to one 30mm (1.2") common end.

Light Tube Mounting Brackets

A number of different types of accessory brackets are available for Light Tubes.

The Round Brackets are for vertical or horizontal mounting of tubes/bars. The bar is locked with a grub screw. They are also available round with either one straight side or two straight sides to allow mounting as close as possible to a flat surface or in a corner.

Square Brackets are for surface mounting tubes horizontally or vertically and come as split halves.

Clip Brackets allow for horizontal mounting and the stand-off can be extended using threaded rod. These can be fitted on site to both tubes and bars.

Aa well as the brackets detailed below, we can incorporate light bars into gantry systems, allowing them to be stood off from the mounting surface.
