It’s no secret that the use of LED (light emitting diode) lighting is growing rapidly, in a wide range of applications, due to dramatic savings in energy use and maintenance costs.
Custom aluminum extrusions are facilitating the rapid evolution of LED lighting applications by meeting these challenges while providing great design versatility. Extruded aluminum fixture housings serve a dual purpose as heat sinks and housing, provide a corrosion‐free material ideal for challenging environments, and incorporate interfaces for diffusers, lenses, circuit boards, and end‐caps & easy mounting, while allowing the lighting designers to create the shape and ideas they desire and put the lighting where it is demanded.
Uses for aluminum extrusions in LED lighting fixtures are growing at an unprecedented pace. Industrial applications include extruded housings for LED lighting in warehouses and manufacturing and distribution centers. Commercial outdoor applications include roadway and bridge lighting, streetscapes, sidewalks, landscape lighting, including commercial exterior building lighting. Commercial indoor LED extruded fixture applications include parking garages and canopies, retail stores and displays, banks, offices, trade shows/exhibit halls, classrooms, libraries, healthcare facilities/hospitals, restaurants, hotels, and entertainment and sports venues.
The LED extrusions provide stable mounting almost anywhere, as they are compact and can be cut to fit any desired space for indoors or outdoors. Aluminum profiles can be used as down lights in a room or embedded into a floor to create a unique architectural experience. Using LED extrusion takes advantage of all of the features of LED strip lights. LED fixtures and profiles serve both residential and commercial applications‐‐from kitchens, bathrooms and driveways to office work stations, and can be integrated into stair steps, railings, furniture, and flooring.
Architects, lighting designers, and specifiers are demanding fixtures and enclosures that offer great looks with options for both finish and colour. Lighting manufacturers want to deliver the entire above, but in cost-effective manner. Understanding this demand of lighting industry for linear lighting, DigiLED introduced 17 different Aluminum Extrusion profiles, which will enable Architects, lighting designers, and contractors to increase their creativity and flexibility in their designs while creating state of the art LED linear Lighting applications and installations. Our Aluminum LED Lighting extrusion profiles, which will enable everyone, to increase their lighting design options in big scale.
We provide linear high grade aluminum extrusions where any kind of Linear LED lighting can be installed, for example LED cove lighting or linear led furniture lighting. The led strip is placed inside the profile, and is optionally covered by a frosted/clear or milky press fit covers. The press fit cover filters the light and creates a seamless linear light output. There are really no limitations to length or brightness levels one can achieve.”
There are several competitive advantages on these LED Strip Extrusion Profiles which can accommodate various LED lighting sources, and can be personalized easily to any length. Some of the profiles from DigiLED are quite interesting, as they offer the possibility to be installed in a recessed format, like the Groovy, Helios and Tub profiles. They offer a clear competitive advantage and they can be installed flushed on floors, walls, drywall, and wood under cabinets or any place where linear lighting is needed.
Other profiles from DigiLED are Angular 45 & Slim 45 profile, which are basically triangular aluminum profiles, which are easily placed in any corner where wall and ceiling meets, thus creating a light output in a 45º angle, which is especially interesting for companies who manufacture display casings, or who already has a jewellery or retail business.
The rest of the profiles from DigiLED can be installed directly in wardrobes, on facades, wall, buildings, outdoor places, restaurants, hotels etc. Many of the profiles offer the possibility to include a clear finish press fit covering or a semi frosted or milky finish. Also some of the profiles are specifically designed to be installed in outdoors; therefore they include high grade PVC covering. What’s more; our Top5070, Top1828 and Moon Profiles can be freely suspended from the ceiling.
At the same time, DigiLED offers a wide selection of LED rigid strips for these applications that ranges from 4W to 80W per meter, as well as many different colours and light temperatures, which enables any customer, to personalize their profile to their exact specifications.
We believe that all our newly develop “Application specific led profiles” will help Architects, lighting designers, contractors to achieve the goal of offering clean, functional light delivering in smooth and continuous way!
