Using an LED light source for halo lighting work
LED halo lighting is one of the most popular ways in which our LED products are used. Halo lit individual letters and logos provide a subtle lighting effect which can be incorporated into many sign and display product.
LED halo lighting is cheaper, safer and easier to work with than comparable neon light sources.
Use LED’s to create cost-effective halo lighting which is safer and easier to install.
LED halo lighting the basic principles
This lighting works by projecting White or coloured lights onto a background the fitting surface where your sign or display panel is mounted.
This construction method allows gel LED lighting to be bent and formed into the tightest shapes possible.
LED gel lights give you the ultimate in flexibility no other LED system is as pliable as the gel light range.
LED halo lighting the rules
There are certain rules to this lighting both LED and neon. If you fail to adhere to these rules your halo lighting will suffer.
What surface you use to reflect out your lighting has a direct impact on the halo result you will achieve.
In general, a standard LED halo lighting system will not work on anything other than a completely matte surface. Glossy sign panels are not suitable nor are satin. Why? With high gloss or stain surface finishes, you get too much reflection. For this light system, you want a reflective effect which creates a gentle glow. High gloss panels reflect everything even a mirror image of the modules fitted inside the sign installation.
All light sources have a minimum standoff distance. If you mount your halo lit lettering and logos too close to the fitting surface you will either reduce the size of the halo to virtually nil or you will start to see too many reflections. We recommend a mounting distance of around 75mm from fitting surface to LED module.
Painted sign panels
To achieve a proper LED halo lighting effect on painted panels you must use the right paint type. The ideal paint type is zero per cent matte. If you plan to use the matt side of aluminium composite you should be aware that this surface is not matte it is satin.
Difficult and gloss surfaces
We have developed a range of manufacturing processes which are specifically designed to improve LED halo lighting effects on difficult surface finishes.
Our special LED halo lighting techniques use our standard LED products and can be designed into most applications.
