Side Emitting PMMA Fiber Optic Harnesses

The only UK manufacturer of raw fiber for fiber optic harnesses

UFO manufacture a range of side emitting PMMA fiber harnesses, which are generally used for either sensory or decorative purposes.

Our Side Sparkle, Stariflex and Opulence harnesses are widely used in the sensory market and carry EN71 and CPSIA certifications. They are also certified as phthalate free, so are the safest fiber harnesses you can purchase for use in sensory applications.

Stranded side glow and smooth Soldcore fibers are both suitable for installation indoors or out. They are most often used to provide light lines in paving or stair fronts or for illuminating around the perimeter of swimming pools.

PMMA Stranded Side Glow

UFO side sparkle side glow fiber can be used to highlight the perimeter of pools, decks and walkways. It is also often used for illuminating the edges of steps.

Suitable for interior or exterior applications, the fiber is UV protected and has an algaecide and fungicide treated exterior jacket for maximum durability against the elements.

Our stranded side glow fiber is strong enough for use in pools or extremely cold environments and with no heat or electricity running through the cable typical lighting design restrictions are eliminated allowing for an almost unlimited range of design possibilities.

stranded side glow fiber

Constructed from 0.75mm diameter PMMA acrylic optical fibers of twisted sub-bundles within a flexible clear jacket.

The fibers are twisted around a highly reflective PVC internal core that offers flexible stability combined with maximum light output.
