A light box is a flat box comprised of translucent plastic or glass that is evenly lit from behind to showcase art, photography, or advertising. Light boxes allow for dramatic displays in movie theaters, airports, commercial businesses and outdoor venues. They are also used in scientific research and other fields where high contrast and visibility is crucial.
Utilizing plastics in light box production allows for enhanced properties, such as a greater impact resistance and weight reduction. Certain plastics also eliminate glare and hot spots, while offering UV filtering properties not found in other materials. Acrylics and polycarbonates are especially suited for this application and allow for unobstructed illumination of images when fabricated in ultra slim panels.
Piedmont Plastics stocks a range of materials for light boxes, including LEDs and light -diffusing polycarbonates and acrylics. We also offer run-to-size and CNC cutting services to optimize yields and fit our customers’ specific needs.
