Metal Coated Fibre

Metal Coated Fibre

Litetec have updated their website to include information on our range of metal coated fibres. These fibres use pure metals of copper, aluminium and gold to give higher temperature use, better hermeticity and higher strength than polymer fibres.

Our metal coated fibres can withstand temperatures up to 500oc for long periods of time or 700oc for shorter periods of time.

This fibre makes for a good comparison with gold coated fibres, but at a fraction of the cost.

This fibre can also be produced in much longer lengths (up to 1km) and come in a variety of fibre types including single mode, graded index and step index large core fibres in UV and IR grades of silica.

Further information on these types of metal coated fibre can be found here;

Energy Efficient Fibre Optics- The Benefits

There are many benefits to fibre optic lighting over conventional lighting, the benefits of fibre optics include;

Virtually no heat

Fibre optic cables only transmit light, the cables and fixtures do not generate heat. This makes it ideal for applications where electricity or heat is a concern such as wine racks, in or around water, chilled food cabinets or display cases.

No UV/IR light

Its a safe light that won't damage or degrade sensitive items. Therefore its useful in museum cabinets where you need light but can't risk damaging the display.

Maintenance Free

Compared to LED systems, if one bulb goes the display of light looks broken and is often difficult and costly to be repaired. With fibre optics, no maintenance is required, if the light stops working, which is not very often, the bulb in the lightsource simply needs replacing. This will cost approx £

Reduced Energy Cost

Fibre optics have fewer watts per square foot compared with conventional lighting. Most one off products can be lit with just a 50W lightsource, which is very bright. The maximum lightsource is 250W.

No Electrical Current

There is no electrical current in the fibre optic cable, making them safe to use in wet environments, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and swimming pools.

Less expensive and easier to install

Compared to conventional lighting, where you have to run conduit or wiring, fibre optics only require minimal installation. Normally only drilling of holes or fixing the cable in place, then choosing an appropraite place for the lightsource.

Easily Accessible

The lightsource is mounted in a convenient location, enabling easy change of lamps if required.

Vast Colour and Effects

A rotating colour wheel in a fibre optic system can easily change the colour of the light. On our lightsources we have a remote control that allows the user to "pause on colour." The lightsources are fitted with a dichroic filter wheel and heat filter to prevent burn out or colour fade. As well as colour wheels you can also have twinkle wheels and waterfall effect wheels. If you required just white light, this is simple to achieve. Therefore, fibre optics allow for vast changes in colour and effects, easily changing the colour to suit the mood or for an update.
If you are looking for fibre optic lighting for decorative use please visit our main website at http://www.litetec.co.uk/
