About the Product

Lumi Light Pockets are extremely slim being only 14mm thick. The inner Lumi sheet – the light source - is etched to give the optimum light output and refract the LED light outwards towards the observer. There is an even spread of light with no dark shadows to ensure a crisp graphic presentation. The beveled edge design makes the front face brighter than the reverse which is an important consideration for those sitting in the office directly behind the display who could find the display too bright.

The pockets have a compact border making them ideal for spaces that are limited in size. However wider borders are available especially for clients who require logo’s etched into the frame.
There is a 12mm silver border around the graphic window which in effect reduces the visible area for the poster slightly (refer to pocket specifications).   
There are two easy options for changing the graphic content. The standard option is to slide the graphic in and out the pocket top. There is a small cut out at the top to allow the graphic to be gripped. The alternative option is the magnetic closure whereby the front is pulled away, remaining hinged at the lower edge, the content inserted and the front released back to be closed by the magnets. No tools are required.
There is no complicated wiring. The kits are supplied complete with a 5mtr long DC Power Cable and a transformer with a three-pin plug. Simply plug in to power up the display. Energy efficient and economical, the illuminated posters use a fraction of the electricity used by traditional light boxes.
Kits that hang floor to ceiling are supplied with almost invisible clear plastic coated stainless steel cables as an additional safety feature. The Light Pockets simply clip onto the cables and are locked into place using small Allen screws. The pockets can be positioned at any height on the cable.
The Light Pockets are “low to no maintenance” and have a life expectancy of 70,000 to 80,000 hours. However please be aware that as with all LED’s the brightness will diminish over time. After 3 years 80-85% original brightness. 5 years 70-75%. It is recommended to install timer switches to run the unit during the hours of darkness and dusk to ensure maximum longevity of brightness.

Changing the Graphics

Graphics can be easily changed within seconds. For displays where posters are changed infrequently or where a crisp, bright, vivid colour is essential such as Beauticians, Spas, Hairdressers etc. the best media to use is Duratran film. The ink absorption ability of this transparency media creates solid saturated colours that come alive when lit up. Duratran film is best illuminated in a bright, evenly lit Lumi light pocket. Duratrans can be supplied by a digital printer.

KEY FEATURES:

Accepts a high dot resolution for crisp edges
Exceptional colour saturation for opaque solid colours
Superior appearance of black and shadows
UV protection results in long lasting colour
For graphics that are changed on a regular basis and cost is more important (estate agents) then the more affordable solution will be to use fine quality 90-120gsm paper with no watermark. These can be printed on standard office printers/copiers.
For laser printers we recommend 120gsm Colotech+Gloss with its ultra smooth surface. The high gloss finish and bright white shade gives an enhanced sharpness to the image.
For ink jet printers you can use Light Transfer Paper which give the closest results to a professional Duratran.
