PLEXIGLAS® ELiT (Edge-Lit Technology) acrylic sheet is designed for use in point-of-purchase displays, illuminated signage and light boxes. It offers the technological advantage where light focused on the edge of the sheet is transmitted and evenly diffused to both faces of the sheet.

This allows the light box manufacturer to conceal the fluorescent tubes in the profile trim, rather than place them behind the sheet. This eliminates the need for bulky display boxes used for illuminated designs and replaces them with slimmer designs.

The light spreading effect exists in PLEXIGLAS® ELiT sheet as supplied. No additional surface preparation of the sheet is required. PLEXIGLAS® ELiT can be curved to create complex and original shapes. Graphics can be on paper, polyester or vinyl. PLEXIGLAS® ELiT lights up to a 24 inch graphic with only one fluorescent tube placed along the edge. For larger sized illuminated signage displays, additional fluorescent tubes may be used.
