Cove Lighting Construction

Linear light strips are idea cove lights to install in new construction projects. Most public buildings, new houses, and new office buildings have some type of cove or variance at or near the ceiling. Installing cove lighting in these areas adds aesthetic and contributes an additional functional element to the building– provided you use a flexible cove lighting source that can be adapted to virtually any environment. It also adds value to new construction pricing when you install a cove lighting source that can be controlled by the user, and that you can have custom made to seamlessly mount to any environment and any radius bend. Phantom linear cove lighting strips fulfill all three of these requirements in the form of a low-profile and flexible light strip that will fit in building coves as small as 3” from the ceiling and wall.

In new construction homes and offices that have extraordinarily narrow coves or valances, linear strips offer a distinct advantage over fluorescent light fixtures. Fluorescent transformers and fixtures are clearly visible in these narrow coves and can detract from the ambiance effect of the light itself. The same quality of lighting can be achieved with a Phantom cove light without revealing its visible presence. It can be field cut or notched to bend and follow any radius along a serpentine cove. Its narrow design also makes it ideal for kitchen soffits, beam trusses, and valances.

Phantom cove lights utilize remote magnetic transformers concealed from normal viewing angles. These low voltage transformers are fully dimmable and allow the end user to dim the lights at will for accent lighting. This offers the facilities manager or homeowner the added value of minimized maintenance through prolonged bulb and fixture life over such products as cove light rope.

Further value is added with your choice in lamp types. Cove lighting fixtures by Phantom can be fitted with incandescent, xenon, or LED festoon lamps. If you are working on any level with new construction LEED certification, you really want to take the time to look at our proprietary LED festoon lamping technology. We have created a lamp design that combines multiple bulb combinations into a single festoon unit that can be fitted to any cove lighting strip. These festoon lamps are so efficient they rival the lumens output of incandescent lamps and nearly approximate those of xenon. This gives the lighting designer who is bidding an install for a new construction project the full range of cove lighting accent options ranging from cool and warm color accents to state-of-the-art green technology that mimics traditional technology with minimal forward throw heat and 80% less the total power costs.

No cove is designed or manufactured the same, and the professionals at Phantom can assist with design development as well as engineering retrofit applications. Phantom Lighting energy saving LED festoons can act as replacements to lamps in existing linear strips provided certain compatibility requirements are met. Power leads can also be ordered to accommodate unique wiring runs, and to balance loads to secondary transformer fusing. The greatest benefit you will gain from our unique approach to cove lighting is a very precise and custom approach to applied technology housed within a fixture that is pure aesthetic on the surface, pure engineering underneath.
