Application Areas

Light is much more than brightness. It creates an atmosphere and gives rooms and the items within them an unmistakable character. At home, in the world of work, in stores, on streets and in buildings. But light also has a function to perform. Offices have to be properly lit to suit their requirements, just like public buildings, roads and factory units. Key factors are the quality and distribution of light, as well as energy efficiency. PLEXIGLAS® is the ideal material to meet these demands. Its properties, such as unsurpassed transparency and brilliance, a variety of surfaces and good formability, meet the technical and design requirements of lighting planners and advertisers, lighting manufacturers and architects.

The lighting industry and its developments are currently undergoing a technological sea change, moving away from classical light sources to LED technology. This enables new types of lighting and luminaire design. The advantages are greater luminous efficiency with lower energy consumption, slimmer light boxes, and a huge variety of color – but these benefits can only be maximized if the luminaire material matches the technology.

With its unusual light-guiding properties, PLEXIGLAS® offers a wide range of options. That applies both to conventional light sources and also when the focus is on design rather than function. The material inspires designers to create entirely new light impressions that speak to the emotions.
