Linear Lighting Systems For Display Illumination

Fibre optic light wands for cabinet & display illumination

Light Wands are a smaller version of the Light Tubes, which use polymer fibre at close spacings to give a very even wash of light, and are ideally suited to small display cases or to light pictures or information boards.

As standard, Light Wands are supplied in either a black or silver anodised finish but they can also be painted to a custom colour of your specification.

Features & Specifications

Fibre choice for Light Wands is 0.75mm, 1.0mm or 1.5mm and this is determined by the throw of light needed and how closely together the scallops of light need to merge.

As with the Light Bars & Light Tubes, Wands can be supplied straight, with fibre exiting from one or both ends, or as part of a gantry system. light wand sizes

When specifying light wands, consider the following:
  • The dimensions of the area to be lit
  • The space required to feed through the diameter of the wand at its widest point (usually the endcap)
  • How the tails can run back to the light source
  • The intensity of the light required

Light Wand Common Ends

Light Wands can be supplied with either standard 30mm or mini 12.5mm or 14mm common ends. Where a mini common end is used, a 30mm adaptor, as shown below, is required to fit a standard light source.

Mini common ends allow for more than one independently removable wand to be connected to a light source and require a smaller hole to pass through for easier installation. A maximum of three 12.5mm mini common ends and two 14mm mini common ends can be connected to one 30mm common end.
