What is troughlighting?
How a trough light can help you illuminate more effectively.
Trough lighting is one of the most popular methods of illuminating exterior signage. Trough lighting overcomes the problem of light spotting and uneven illumination which is an inherent problem with traditional spot or flood lights.
A troughlight is you cost effective solution to even, bright illumination of even the longest fascia sign. The essence of a troughlight system is the specially designed aluminium extrusion which encases all the electrical control gear and tubes. This is then hung on specially designed brackets which integrate with the extrusion to deliver a non obtrusive. lightweight lighting system.
Troughlighting can be made as a single unit up to 6m (20ft) in length. Larger sizes can be easily achieved using the specially designed connectors- with this option you can have a trough light of virtually any length.
Who uses troughlighting?Troughlighting is used across the UK for many different kinds of exterior illumination. Although trough lighting was originally developed for the sign industry it is used for general purpose exterior lighting as well as sign specific applications
You will have seen trough lighting systems on your high street or local out of town shopping centre. Whenever people need to illuminate a large exterior sign they tend to use a trough light system.
Typical applications for trough lighting include
High street retail shops
Take away outlets
Pubs & clubs
Factory and industrial buildings
