Buy Custom LED Acrylic Tubes
Wired4Signs USA, LLC, a manufacturer of custom acrylic lamps and acrylic LED light products, collaborates with interior designers, architects, event planning firms, and exhibition designers to produce stunning frosted acrylic light tubes or polycarbonate tube light assemblies.
We bring together our experience with LED lighting, LED lighting controls, acrylic adhesives, and CNC manufacturing to build anything from a scene of RGB color-changing acrylic pendant lights to LED acrylic table lamps.
We use the finest quality acrylic polycarbonate tubes — manufactured either here in the USA or in Europe — to build anything from small 1ft acrylic LED lamps to 10ft outdoor acrylic tube light fixtures. Our Smokies70 3-inch acrylic tube (actually extruded tough polycarbonate) is available in a frosted white version or as an awesome smokey black tube.
Our LED tubing can but used to build battery-operated tube lights and incorporate DMX and Bluetooth control for stage lighting.
The advantage of the white-black acrylic tube is that it is a great option to buy when your wall art scene background is black so that the tubes are not visible when the lighting is off but give great light contrast when the LED lights are on.
Many designers buy our acrylic plastic tubes to build hanging lamp fixtures or light tubes for bathroom vanities. You can build wall decor by stacking LED acrylic cylinder tube fixtures in a row and using our Lantana pixel LED strip to create dynamic wall lighting scenes.
We have many options to mount or hang acrylic cylinder tubes and many different types of architectural strip light to create your ideal decor accessory.
Our frosted tubes are dense enough for you not to see the light source directly and give a smooth, slick, clean finish.
The main points to consider when choosing between an LED acrylic tube and an LED polycarbonate tube are:
- Most polycarbonate tubes will yellow in the direct sun over time, whereas acrylic tubes are usually UV stable.
- Acrylic tubes tend to crack if dropped or on impact, but polycarbonate tubes are impact resistant.
