What is a lightbox display?

A lightbox display is essentially a four sided tension frame with the added benefit of LED lighting. The lightbox structure is made from durable aluminium. All four sides of the aluminium frame have a special channel that is used for securing the fabric graphic in place. The fabric graphic is finished with a silicon beading that is stitched around the outside edge of the graphic. The silicon is pushed into the aluminium channel and the precision made fabric graphic is stretched onto the frame for a tension finish. The LED lights are either installed onto the frameworks inside edge or are fitted onto a rigid back panel that is fitted onto the back of the aluminium frame. Some of our portable lightbox displays come with LED curtains, that are usually hung inside the lightbox display frame. Most lightboxes are supplied with a transformer that depending on the lightbox size, may sit within the frame or may be external to the frame. We manufacturer lightboxes in any size required. Some lightboxes are best suited to permanent installation and others are designed to be portable lightboxes, perfect for transporting to and from events and suitable for setting-up and taking down again on a regular basis. Some of our portable lightbox displays are made using a tubular aluminium profile, which has an LED curtain hung inside the framework. This type of portable lightbox display is supplied with a printed fabric graphic sock that is pulled over the entire frame and zipped closed.

What is a portable lightbox display?

Simply put, this type of lightbox is designed to be lightweight and easy to assemble, ideally without the need for any tools. We have the UKs largest selection of off the shelf portable lightbox displays. Some of them come with edgelit LEDs and others come with LED curtains, providing a backlit portable lightbox display solution. We also have portable lightbox display towers and portable lightbox display counters, both delivering there LED illumination via LED curtains. Most of our portable lightboxes come with a carry bag or wheeled case, making them easy to transport to and from events and to store in between use.

What is a backlit lightbox display?

Backlit lightboxes are generally thought to have a more even spread of light and are less likely to have and dark areas or parts of the lightbox that are more in shadow than others (usually the centre of very large lightboxes). They are rightfully afforded this reputation by virtue of the fact that unlike edglit lightboxes, which have LED lighting modules on either the horizontal or vertical lengths of the lightbox frame only, a backlit lightbox display has LED modules across the entire surface area of a back panel. This ensures light is evenly distributed across your fabric graphic, regardless of the overall size of the lightbox. Because of the construction method of a backlit lightbox it is often the more costly lightbox options because it is usually transported in a fully built unit. This makes the delivery of more traditional backlit lightboxes only suitable for a more costly dedicated delivery service. For use as a portable lightbox, some of our backlit lightboxes deliver the LEDs via a LED curtain that is hung within the lightbox display frame. We would not recommend this type of lightbox as a permanent lightbox display in a showroom or retail setting, but it is an excellent solution as a lightweight portable lightbox display.

What is an edgelit lightbox display?

Made from a durable aluminium frame, an edgelit lightbox display has it’s LED lights fitted to the sides of the framework. Depending on the size and orientation of your lightbox, the LED lights may be fitted to the vertical lengths or to the horizontal lengths. A backlit lightbox fabric graphic is then installed on the front of the lightbox and a blockout fabric lightbox graphic is usually installed on the back of the lightbox, with the intention of directing the light out through the front graphic. The exception is where you have a freestanding lightbox with a backlit print on both sides. Edgelit lightbox displays are generally more cost effective to purchase, in part because they can be modular in construction so pack down into smaller sections for transportation. Backlit lightbox in comparison are usually transported in completely built structures, meaning they are often only suitable for a dedicated delivery service.
