Outdoor Fibre Optic Lighting Kits - designed for use in decking, patios, saunas and steam rooms


We have a superb Fibre Optic Lighting Kit which uses a compact weatherproof (IP67) Projector to shine light down the ends of plastic optical fibers.  These fibres light up on the end like LEDs and look amazing in decking or patios and even around flower beds and shrubs to create the appearance of tiny lights resembling Fireflies.  The rugged design of the Projector also makes it suitable for lighting Saunas and Steam Rooms.

Fiber Optics used to light up decking in the evening

The Fibres look very similar to fishing line and are extremely versatile, they can be bent around corners, knotted, joined, or even bent at a right angle if heated first with a heat source such as a hot air gun.  The Fibres are supplied with a black protective wire-like coating which can be removed near the end of the Fibres by using automatic wire strippers leaving the transparent core, ideal for installations where the lights need to be virtually invisible when switched off.

This Fibre Optic system is designed in the U.K to high specifications. 

Advantages of our Fibre Optic system over standard LED Kits and Halogen Fibre Optic Kits

  • High Quality.  The LED Projector is a proven design with many customers already using the product for the last several years.
  • Maintenance free. There are no moving parts such as colour wheels, these are used to change the colour of the light in Halogen Fibre Optic Projectors and are notorious for making a noise or seizing up.  Our Projector is digital and electronically changes the colour levels of the 3 primary colours of the Light Engine producing over 16.7 Million different colours.
  • Long Lifetime.  The LED is correctly powered with current and voltage control, this ensures a lifetime in excess of 40,000 hours. 
  • Very Bright.  Comparable brightness to a Halogen 50 Watt Projector, our Projector draws just 3 watts of power!
  • Very low running cost.  Our system if left running every hour of the day on white (full power) will cost a mere 10 pence per week to run.  With the money saved in electricity and replacement lamps (compared to a Halogen Projector) our projector will have fully paid for itself in less than a year.
  • User friendly.  Fiber Optics are extremely easy to install, the only wires you need to connect are to the LED Projector itself from power supply and controller if used.
  • Up to 220 Lights from just 1 LED projector.  Each harness has 120 or 220 Tails depending on the kit you choose.  One end of each fibre emits light the other ends are combined together and connect in the the Fibre Optic Projector.
  • Weatherproof (IP67) Projector.  The LED Projector is housed in an IP Rated (weatherproof) Enclosure.  No costly additional cases or covers are required.
  • Very Durable. Fiber Optics are made of plastic and once installed under decking or in a patio are difficult to damage or break and because they are made of Polymer Fiber will not rust or corrode.
  • Interactive - Sound to light response.  If used with our ZEN or ZAP Controller (shown below) the Fibre Optics can respond to sounds or music, the ZEN Controller even allows you to directly plug in a feed from an MP3 Player or other sound source for accurate sound to light response a low levels.
  • DMX Controllable.  For those that want it we can supply a DMX Bridge which can work with any DMX Controller or even an Enttec ODE for control via Iphone/Ipad or Android Tablet or Phone.
  • Networkable.  The Projectors can be linked via the ZEN to our other Mood Lighting products such as our Plinth Lights, RGB Spotlights etc.  Mutiple Projectors with Fibre Optics can be controlled from the same remote control.
  • Touch Screen Control.  Used with our Lightbox or WiFi Lightbox the Projectors can be colour controlled from a Smartphone or Tablet using the free App. Multiple projectors can be used on each controller.

We have put together a selection of Lighting Kits with different lengths of harnesses which will cater for virtually all types of installations, available in single colour or colour changeable.
