Alternative Mounting for Exterior Installations

  • Surface Mount - Light Tape® is placed on mounting surface and then covered by an approved protective lens. Surface mounts are ideal for wood, concrete, brick and other surfaces that DO NOT conduct heat.
  • Flush Mount - Surface is routed or pre-prepared to create mounting channel for Light Tape® . The Light Tape® is the covered and sealed with an approved protective lens.
  • Suspended Mount - Light Tape® is placed between two pieces of medium with one being clear. Suspended Mounts are ideal for metallic and other heat conducting surfaces, as it offsets and allows air flow

 

Follow the below steps to properly construct your light box. Choose an appropriate mount based on the conditions in which the light box will be placed.

 

Note: For ALL mounts, by sandwiching Light Tape® in a frame, the lamp is able to expand and contract with the weather. The top and sides should be sealed and the bottom is left open for drainage.

Place 0.014 inch spacers between the front and rear layer panel to allow for slight movement.

 

Surface Mount

Light Tape® is sandwiched between the existing structure and the protective cover. The top is sealed and the bottom is left open as a drain.

  1. Clean surface. It is important that surface is smooth.
  2. Sandwich Light Tape® between the surface and the lens, placing a spacer behind the lens. It is recommended that Light Tape® VibraMount ™ or other compressible material is placed behind Light Tape®.

    Note: Only apply foam to surface and not to Light Tape® to allow for expansion and contraction.

  3. Screw lens to surface. Apply slight pressure so panel is lightly pressed between the lens and backing on surface.
  4. Seal the mount together at the top and sides. Leave a gap or holes at bottom of the light box to allow for drainage and eliminate possibility water entering box.

Flush Mount Suspended Mount

Light Tape® is placed inside a track or channel which has been cut in the existing surface. A lens is then placed to protect from impact and then sealed to block moisture.

  1. Cut track or channel in existing surface.
  2. Clean surface. It is important that surface is smooth.
  3. Sandwich Light Tape® between the surface and the lens, placing a spacer behind the lens. It is recommended that VibraMount ™ or other compressible material is placed behind Light Tape®.

    Note: Only apply foam to surface and not to Light Tape® to allow for expansion and contraction.

  4. crew lens to surface. Apply slight pressure so panel is lightly pressed between the lens and backing surface.
  5. Seal the mount together on the top and sides. Leave small gaps or holes at bottom of the light box to allow for drainage.

Suspended Mount

Ideal for suspending Light Tape® away from surface. Recommended if surface is susceptible to extreme heat, such as metals Also, ideal for large format graphics where image can be placed on outside surface.

  1. Utilize smooth materials to construct lenses.
  2. Sandwich Light Tape® between two plastic lenses with spacers separating the Light Tape® from the lenses. Apply slight pressure so that panel is lightly pressed between the lenses.
  3. Screw light box to surface allowing a space for air flow.
  4. Seal the light box together at the top and sides. Leave a gap or holes at bottom of the sign to allow for drainage.
