Side Glow Fibre Optic Cable (6mm)
Side Glow Fiber Optic cable produces the appearance of Neon tubes without the fragile glass or high voltage.
Light projected down the end of the Fibre results in the whole length of the Fibre and the opposite end glowing.
It is ideally suited for use in wet areas such as bathrooms and around the edges of swimming pools, gardens, bathrooms etc., anywhere a line of light is required.
Unlike Neon, Side Glow Fibre Optics are not limited to a single colour but will display whatever colour of light is projected down the end. If used with our CoolFusion Projector the Fibre will be able to display 2,097,152 different colours.
Side Glow Fiber is bendable so will follow contours, it can also be trimmed to size with a sharp knife.
For a run of 10 Meters the Fibre can be connected to the projector at one end only. If a run of 20 or more meters is required we would recommend looping the Fibre back to the projector so it is illuminated from both sides. Alternatively an additional projector can be used if a loop is not possible, this projector can act as a repeater for very long runs of fibre optics.
For example: If lighting the edge of a driveway you could have 10 to 20 Meters of Fibre Optic Cable with a projector at the start and end, then the next length of Fibre Optic can be illuminated from the same projector since there are 5 holes in the projector. It can also allow a spider's leg configuration where several Fibres run from the projector in different directions.
Where required we can have more holes machined into the end of the projector.
