Solid Surface Backlighting – Let Your Project Be the Guiding Light

Like a light house guiding a ship to shore, shouldn’t your backlighted solid surface project stand out from the rest? The interplay between light and solid surfaces can be intriguing to those with a creative eye for architectural design. There are so many ways to explore translucency in your designs. Different levels and styles add definition and drama. There are a variety of options using light and the unique thermoformable properties of solid surface. The right type of lighting will elicit attention, illuminate details, and add dimension to the project.

A real challenge is how lighting is implemented. The distance behind a solid surface panel is critical to prevent hotspots and shadow lines. Requesting a mockup from the fabricator is required in most cases to ensure the correct distance between the lighting and the surfaces. LED lighting is the best choice for most backlighted applications because it reduces maintenance and power consumption.
