Light Tape® Illuminates Foster Court, University College London

Light Tape® has been used once again to create a unique display, this time on the entrance to Foster Court, at University College London.

Foster Court Morse Code in Light Tape

Already used in 2009 on the external walls of the Darwin building at the college featuring the words “Darwin Walk” in Morse code, the finished result proved so effective that it has been replicated for Foster Court.

The display features the words “Foster Court” in Morse code, with all the “dots” and “dashes” being made from Light Tape® in its “Cut out Shapes” form. The attached photographs show the display at night and, even with the ambient lighting from the windows and other light sources the Light Tape® shapes certainly do the job of providing a bright and colourful finishing touch to this newly renovated walk way.

This particular project, once again, required the energy saving Light Tape® product to be presented in the form of “cut outs”, where all the pieces were custom cut from Light Tape® Extreme Series electroluminescent panels as required and encapsulated in a Honeywell Clarus film. The figures In this case, were 300mm circles, “dots” and 300mm x up to 2m lengths, “dashes”. Each “cut out” was fitted with a heavy duty 3M Resin Sealed IP68 Rated Connector including wire, ready for installation. Vibramount adhesive strip was applied, in turn, to each of the prepared chosen sights for the installation of the shapes; which were then individually positioned on to the vibramount and sealed into place under, sized, clear polycarbonate sheeting then screwed to the receiving wall, providing additional protection of the Light Tape® shapes from the elements. Once fitted in to place all of the shapes were wired back to the mains supply through channeling fixed across the top of buildings wall via a Light Tape® Smart Driver™ power unit. The lighting is controlled by a photocell further ensuring sensible power usage.

It is fair to say that had the shapes been supplied using the traditional form of signage, florescent display boxes, the end results would have proved bulkier at around 75mm thick as opposed to 6mm using the Light Tape® alternative. The light tubes would have been visible through the front of the sign even through the coloured plastic covering, causing the light distribution to be uneven and creating uneven colour, so aesthetically the overall effect would have been much less pleasing and the display would have been easily damageable. The maintenance costs would also be higher and the ongoing power consumption would be at least 20 times greater (this estimate is conservative).

The original design of the Light Tape® display at Foster Court was done by Max Fordham Consulting Engineers, the installation was carried out by Alpine Works Limited, both based in the London.

Light Tape® Lights Burlesque Premier Red Carpet

How do you light up a red carpet laid on the pavement of Leicester Square?

You use Light Tape® of course.

Light Tape Illuminated Burlesque Red Carpet

Burlesque Premier Red Carpet Lit with Light Tape

Once again Light Tape UK Ltd provided just the right solution when the idea to light up the word Burlesque, cut out in a section of the red carpet used at the London premier of the newly released movie of the same name, starring Cher and Christine Aguilera.

For further details please visit our web site at: http://www.lighttape.co.uk or our Blog at: https://lighttapeuk.wordpress.com/

As the Light Tape® product is only as thin as a business card it proved perfect for the job. A large Sheet of Light Tape was placed directly under the section of the red carpet that had the name of the movie expertly cut out central of the walk way each letter having circles cut out within it made to resemble Hollywood style dressing room mirror lighting. An underlay was placed on the pavement of Leicester Square and the carpet rolled over the sheet of Light Tape into position.

Light Tape® even stood up to the rigors of being walked over by the female stars in their 5” heels and driven over by the limousines at the end of the event.
