Side Emitting PMMA Fibre Optic Harnesses

The only UK manufacturer of raw fibre for fibre optic harnesses

UFO manufacture a range of side emitting PMMA fibre 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 fibre harnesses you can purchase for use in sensory applications.

Stranded side glow and smooth Soldcore fibres 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 fibre 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 fibre is UV protected and has an algaecide and fungicide treated exterior jacket for maximum durability against the elements.

Our stranded side glow fibre 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 fibre

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

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