backlighting

Solid Surface Backlighting - Iowa City Childrens HospitalHow do you get the ‘WOW’ factor across in your next solid surface project? Backlighting. Solid surface designs can be extraordinary and lighting them up can make them stand out from the rest. Backlighting acts like the cherry on top to the solid surface sundae and is a perfect finishing touch. The right type of lighting will make the architecture attract attention, illuminate details, and add dimension to the project.

Composition and depth of the solid surface can get lost in dark locations. Some of the leading solid surfaces on the market today have an element of translucency. The last thing anyone would want would be for that trait of translucency to go unnoticed. Don’t let your solid surface project fade into the background. Make it the centerpiece by lighting it up.

At ASST we create the most breathtaking and eye catching designs of Corian®, 3Form®, Krion®, LG HiMacs®, Avonite®, as well as other solid surface materials. Our creations come in different textures, colors, transparencies, and backlighting will make them stand out even more. Lighting fixtures can range from LED panels to light tape. Either way, lighting behind an ASST solid surface will make your project radiate in its space. ASST can design and incorporate backlighting into the solid surface project plan to make sure that it is unique and enhances the solid surface.

LED Backlight Thermoformed Solid Surface Trade Show BoothLighting and wall surfaces make a huge impact on interior spaces and can support a brand message. Design professionals are becoming increasingly involved in strategies that incorporate branding. Durable solid surface materials can be thermoformed, CNC machined, and backlighted to create a variety of dramatic effects. Translucent solid surface can be backlighted with LED panels and light controllers. A programmed display of color images promoting a brand can be run continuously in a loop. The opportunities are endless for stunning aesthetics.

Design professionals are responsible for how interior spaces look. Often how lighting is implemented to achieve an aesthetic is confusing, especially backlighting. Backlighting evenly is one of the real challenges of achieving a branded aesthetic. The distance behind a solid surface panel is critical to prevent hotspots and shadow lines. Requesting a mockup from the fabricator is in most cases required to evaluate the correct distance. Undesirable shadows can also be cast around CNC machined logo corners, and curved areas if not properly masked from behind. LED lighting is the best choice for most backlighted applications and reduces maintenance and power consumption. Contracting fabricators with firsthand knowledge and experience with backlighting architectural surfaces is essential to achieving desirable branded looks for the client image.

ASST has the depth of knowledge and experience to address the technical challenges. Our team of expert project managers and technical staff have a unique perspective having worked on hundreds of backlighted projects. We can share past relevant project experiences and case studies guiding you through the entire process. We love assisting customers and making their vision real!
