Patented Design: What makes the Flexface lightbox unique?

The Flexface is one of a kind. A lightbox without a cover. That displays your graphics on canvas, like a gallery artwork.

Think of your visuals, lit up in all weathers, in pin-sharp definition. With no fixings or frame to distract attention. Just your marketing messages, at massive scale. Flexface is a lightbox unlike any other.

Deluxe Print

With Flexface, your graphics are printed on a fabric face so nothing comes between your artwork and its audience. Matte inks eliminate glare from sunlight or headlights. And the tight weave canvas allows even the finest detail to shine through.

Weather Proof

An immensely strong system underpins the smooth surface of this lightbox. A hidden framework of coiled springs holds the fabric face in place, flexing constantly to keep your graphic perfectly taut. Flexface resists everything the weather can throw at it. Batter it with torrential rain or gale force winds and it still looks as good as it did on its first day at work.

Energy Saving

Flexface presents your business in its best light by using cleantech LEDs in an adaptive lighting system. The top quality LEDs are CE-certified and ECA-rated and grouped to get maximum brightness per buck.

Reusable

Flexface appears to float off walls, which adds to its powers of attraction. Our installers can mount it to any flat surface with a kit of invisible fittings. If ever you need to move the lightbox to a new location, it’s no problem. You can even take it down and add feet to it to create a freestanding unit. Refreshing your display is easy: just whisk out the original canvas and pop in a new print.

Flexface lightboxes come in a variety of profiles, ranging from lightweight to heavy duty. For more information, or to arrange a real life viewing, call us today on 01 452 4152.

Chiplite LEDs: The secret to lighting up your logo

There is a science to making your logo light just right. Perfect brightness depends on using the latest LED technology.

With all eyes on the gleaming exterior of your sign, it’s easy to overlook what’s going on inside. Behind the acrylic faces there are hidden chains of high-powered LEDs, set to beam light at the optimum angle and intensity to light your sign evenly from edge to edge. Free from bright spots, dark spots or shadows that could spoil the impression.

To make sure your sign stands apart, we insist on using a better class of LED. Chiplite is a market-leading brand that lights millions of products worldwide. These are no ordinary LEDs. IP65 enclosures keep dust and water at bay so your sign shines in all weathers. Each module is certified CE and RoHS for health, safety and environmental protection. And, though the modules are tiny, we can surgically adjust the angle of each lens for perfect results.

For every height and depth of letter, there is an equivalent Chiplite. And plenty of design options: specify white or colour lights, make them ultra-bright or dimmer-controlled and vary the number of modules to maximise energy savings. Craftsmanship meets electronics in our Chiplite powered signs.

Is there a limit to the size of halo lit, side lit or face lit letters?

Displaying your name in lights at super scale is no object for us. It’s when space is tight that things get trickier.

‘We like it, but can you make our logo smaller?’, is not something we often hear. Logos, by their nature, are designed to have big personalities. Rarely are we asked to make one so small that it cannot be illuminated. Lighting logo straplines is where challenges arise.

When you want to light a stacked logo, tagline and all, in a confined space we start by identifying a minimum height for the small print. This is dictated, not by the x-height of a font, but by its stroke width. We need enough room to thread an LED module into the stroke. For indoor signs this width is 12mm; for outdoor signs with more powerful LEDs it is 18mm. Scaling your typeface up to this stroke width, we calculate the smallest height at which it can be lit.

Fonts with a low stroke contrast can be made to light at very small sizes: we’ve lit Myriad Pro letters that are only 50mm high. Hairline serifs like Didot, that contrast fine and thick strokes, tend to need more height. If in doubt, email us a vector file of what you have in mind and we’ll advise you on your best options.
