Thus eliminating heat and power consumption by replacing physical wires with conductive mounts grounded safely to the cabinet itself. Phantom specialists spend a great deal of time in consultation; determining exact dimensions and material constitutions of individual low voltage displays and cabinets lighting. Low voltage lighting engineer’s custom cut each strip to provide a perfect match for both new builds and retrofit mounting. Phantom Lighting builds six different series of strip lights, knowing that different shelving and display designs require different types of mounting fixtures for shielded low voltage cabinet lighting.
Cabinets built by custom designers featuring fine finish and hand carved surfaces require the most seamless possible fit to avoid a visible fixture from detracting from craftsmanship and design. Our AC series adjustable strip lighting is perfect for this. It is designed for new build cabinets, so most of AC series customers are builders or cabinetmakers that order the strips pre-cut and physically build the fixture into the display.
For private commercial clients and homeowners looking to retrofit existing cabinets or add decorative flair to generic cabinetry, we carry a similar low voltage strip lighting for cabinets in our AE series. This cabinet light allows for greater flexibility with only slightly more visibility in the fixture itself. It is ideal for retrofitted installation onto existing shelves, and it can also dual function as a custom piece for new cabinets under construction.
The AC series does provide total fixture concealment, but it is nonetheless can prove a highly decorative add-on to a plain or basic displays, and its many finish and color options can even add a slightly high-end touch to standard retail low voltage display cabinets. Lighting levels are controlled in both series with special glare shielding that prevents light “spillage” when viewed from either above or below eye level.
Both the AC series and AE series offer multiple lamping options, ranging from fluorescent to incandescent, on up to higher end xenon and state of the art LED light bulbs. The unique positioning of our smaller, festoon lamps makes for a more even “wash” of luminosity that creates both even distribution of photons and a more ambient light within the cabinet space itself.
