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 plastic 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.
Signland stocks a range of materials for light boxes, including LEDs and light diffusing polycarbonate and acrylic.
