Visive’s robust, coloured acrylic tube can be matched to a companies’ brand and provide identity 24-hours a-day and due to the inherent safety features and weatherproof qualities of the product it can be installed on external or internal features. The safe to touch LED contour acrylic tubes are equally suitable for internal applications where shop windows, point of sale features, stairs, handrails, edges of walls need that immediate attention or appeal.
Our contour tube can be adjusted to fit any length of elevation, with corner or radii sections available on request and benefit from an input Voltage of 46V, which minimises the number & cost of power supplies and connection cables – this significantly reduces the installation time.
All our LED contour products are ultra-efficient, with power consumption as low as 1w per metre in some configurations. All the LED chips we use feature class-leading efficacy and L70 values.
All our products have a long lifetime compared to both traditional cold-cathode and neon alternatives. Indeed, we have sites still operating that are nearly 20 years old! We are careful about selecting the best quality LEDs from top-line suppliers such as Osram, Nichia and Samsung. Even then we test parts in-house for extended periods to ensure that manufacturers data and lifetime predictions hold up.
Unlike neon or cold cathode tubes, Hi-Lite™30 & Hi-Brow™ are cool and safe to touch, perfect for public areas.
Power Supply Units (PSUs) are IP67 rated for outdoor installation and are fitted with our unique Patented [EP1479271] ‘Current Sense Circuit’ (CSC) system as standard; the CSC constantly monitors the health of an installation and in the unlikely event of a fault being detected, the low-voltage supply will be removed. Whilst the CSC is a safety feature, it can also assist with troubleshooting and will provide information to the user on the type of fault.
All our tube products are quick and easy to install. Robust, pre-drilled clips hold sections securely in place whilst being discreetly hidden out of sight behind the tubes. Integrated connection wires, terminated with IP67 rated connectors, allow tubes to be daisy-chained into longer runs – a true plug-and-play system.
The low power requirements, coupled with constant-current drive technology, minimises the number of power supplies required for each installation. This in turn reduces the time and cost for the installer when fixing and connecting the tubes.
The robust tubes come in a standard length of 2400mm (7’9”) and 1200mm (3’9”) and can be cut on site at 50mm (2”) intervals. Full details of the installation process are given in our installation guide, and ‘Tech talk’ video clips, available on YouTube, which provide more detail on specific aspects, such as the process of cutting tubes to length, or the operation of the CSC system.
Hi-Lite™30 & Hi-Brow™ tubes are factory sealed with endcaps fixed by an advanced ultra-sonic welding process. They are then individually tested to ensure they are fully weatherproof and ready to provide a long, maintenance free, life.
All products are covered by a 5-year warranty.
Hi-Lite™30 & Hi-Brow™ tubes are manufactured in the UK from recyclable materials. The impact modified PMMA (acrylic) used for the extruded profile features inherently superior UV performance when compared to polycarbonate or PVC alternatives. The colour pigments used are all rated at the maximum 8 on the blue wool scale, ensuring resistance to fading.
A standard range of vibrant colours is available, but it is also possible to match a customer’s specific corporate brand design. Whether unilluminated in the daytime or lit at night the coloured identity is maintained when using our Hi-Lite™30 Classic or Border range of products.
By the careful design and specification of the LEDs inside the tube, and the use of unique diffusing additives in the extrusion itself, a consistent linear illumination effect is achieved without the localised hot spots seen on many inferior products.
