Glass Block Illumination

Multi-strand side light Fiber Optics is an ideal addition to any glass block project. The inherent light-emitting properties of PMMA fiber are extremely well suited to this type of application. Fiber Optic lighting has no UV or IR rays, and no electricity build up. Add a four, six or eight color wheel light source or LED light for dynamic color-changing effects. Maintenance is limited to simply changing a lamp within the remote light source.

 

Glass Block Illumination

Backlighting glass block begins with a ¾” substrate, painted white. Position the substrate 3” to 6” behind the glass block. Mount the u-channel and fiber optic onto the substrate, at the grout line of each row of glass block, using adhesive and wood screws.

Multi Strand Side Light Fiber Optic Cable

Stranded side light fiber is multiple bundles of small diameter optic strands that can transmit light over reasonably long distances. The light source (illuminator) is placed at one or both ends of the fiber. Color wheels can be added to the illuminator to change the color of the fiber to as many as eight colors or a LED light source can be used for a single color or RGB.

Because of the ease in handling, multi stranded fiber is a favorite choice.
