Featured Installation: Prager Bros. Artisan Bakery Display Shelves
Airelight™ Linear ES 0.5 U-Channel Surface Mounted on Wood Shelves
To better showcase an artisan bakery's bread, Airelight™ Linears were surface mounted on existing wood shelves. After securing the Airelight™ Linear ES 0.5 U-Channel with screws along the top edge of the shelves, the Linears were daisy chained together and oriented so that the light was directed toward the back wall. Full illumination of the bakery shelves was easily obtained using only 14 feet of Airelight™ Linears.
The before photo of the shelves without Airelight™ Linears shows the significant impact this product has for display type lighting applications. Unlike conventional LED lighting, the uniform Lambertian (cosine) output distribution of Airelight™ Linears eliminate hot spots and glare in light reflected from the objects being illuminated. This attribute makes Airelight™ Linears the preferred solution for cabinet, undercounter and display case lighting.
Stages of the Installation
Left: With lighting installed on one shelf, the above shelf is only a few screws away from being equally well lit.
Right: A "bread's eye view".
Maintaining the slim profile of the Airelight™ Linear, the U-Channel serves as housing and provides an optimal solution for surface mounted lighting applications and under cabinet installations.
U-Channel is available for both the Airelight™ Linear 0.5 and 1.0 widths and in multiple finish options (Steel Grey, White, additional color choices upon request). Constructed with 24 gauge steel, the U-Channel is light weight and can be installed with screws or mounting tape.
