Mounting the light source at the edge of the diffused glass and also because of the type of lamps used the surface of the light box does not get hot. This is a great advantage when viewing delicate products. The added advantage of using CCFL lamps as a light source is the low power consumption, nearly 90% less than conventional bulbs. They are maintenance free and long lasting approximately 30,000 hours. The colour of the light emitted from a CCFL lamp can be designed to meet the requirements of the light box user.
The modern light box, because of its ultra slim size and lack of radiated heat, can now be used for a considerable number of applications. Poster displays in public places are now wide spread, hospitals and veterinary surgeries use them for X-ray viewing, Colleges and Universities now use them in many departments.
A light box is not just a light in a box but is now a means of displaying posters, menus, analyzing products, treating Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) etc. They can also be seen wherever you look in windows, interior displays and signage, including static and rotating units designed to attract customers to a product or service.
