What Makes Phantom Lighting Unique Among Lighting Fixture Manufacturers?
Phantom Lighting is a unique light fixture manufacturer for a number of reasons. Instead of creating an inventory of generic products that contractors and end users must figure out how to apply to custom needs, Phantom takes a basic model fine art projector or linear lighting strip and customizes it to the environment and needs of the individual client. This allows contractors to specifically address the needs of the end user in a personal fashion, and it allows end users to call their own shots when placing an order through a Phantom Agent. This uniqueness has earned Phantom a reputation for proprietary customization in fine art and display lighting products that have found their way into homes, offices, retail establishments, libraries, and museums throughout North, Central, and South America. The Contour projector has experienced worldwide acclaim for its magical “lighted from within” effect, and our linear display lighting strips are equally renowned for their near invisible presence, low voltage power savings, and wireless conduction of electricity.
Phantom leads the lighting industry in a pioneer of user-customization and technical optimization for commercial and residential illumination.
What Makes Phantom Contour Projectors Unique?
First of all, the Phantom combines a high-powered halogen light source with a complex, easily adjustable set of filters that keep the light free from UV and infrared radiation. Phantom manufactures five Contour Projector models that can be custom installed into any ceiling, seamlessly, without damage to the surrounding structure. Furthermore, each of these models is also designed to not only avoid any harm to the ceiling structure, but to also conceal its visible presence from the eye of the casual viewer. Clients who are looking for a sheik, sophisticated and professional presentation of their fine art collection can rely upon this art lighting projector to showcase the maximum value of their artwork and to also provide special effect and mood-related lighting upon command.
Can Phantom fine art projectors showcase rare and valuable paintings?
Yes. Because of the Contour fine art projectors amazing ability to filter out UV and ultraviolet light, collectors in both private and public arenas rely upon Phantom projectors to showcase and protect their most rare and valuable paintings. Phantom Projectors also produce a superior spectrum of light that rivals natural light with none of is deleterious effects.
How do other forms of art appear when lit with a Contour fine art projector?
Photography, pastels, personal oils, and watercolors will look superb both in color and in depth when illuminated by the Contour’s “lighted from within” effect.
This phenomenon is produced by passing the light through a series of lenses and filters that makes the beam itself invisible until it strikes the surface of a painting or sculpture.

What Makes Phantom Linear Cabinet Lights Unique?
Phantom custom cabinet lights are unique in their ability to conceal their physical appearance and also in the unique way they conduct electricity. Our linear cabinet lighting strips do not use visible wires to power their lamps, but rather use existing metal shelf standards to conduct low voltage electricity safely and reliably. Each AC Series linear strip is custom cut to the exact dimensions of the vertical or horizontal surface to which it will be mounted. One of our six model lines is actually designed to be mounted to curved surfaces and can be fitted to any cove or vaulted ceiling in a home or office.
Your choice of xenon, incandescent, or LED lamps will be installed in your linear strip at the time of manufacture, and these lamps will be fitted to festoon mounts than can be individually replaced if a bulb fails so you do not have to replace the entire strip light. See how our festoon lamps compare between lamp types.
How well do these linear strips perform as cabinet lights?
In most cabinet lighting and under cabinet lighting applications, Phantom linear strips are ideal for commercial and residential environments. Because of their “adjustable shelf” technology, they can work with any type of custom shelving found in cabinets, commercial displays, residential armoires, and bookshelves. Three different lamping options are available as well: incandescent, xenon, and super power-saving LED. Phantom cabinet lighting strips can be manufactured as 12V linear strips that maximize energy conservation without compromising the intensity or quality of the light. They also feature dimmer controls that allows for instantaneous adjustment of brightness levels. This makes them ideal low voltage night lights in custom kitchens, break rooms, and bathroom vanity areas. They are also a favorite of librarians and antique dealers, who find the low ambient lighting they emit to be ideal for producing decorative effects that enhance the appearance of rare hardbacks and collectibles.
Is Low Voltage Display Lighting Really That Important?
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of low voltage cabinet lighting installations. Incandescent and xenon bulbs can run up a light bill very quickly, but when regulated by a low voltage transformer, produce the same quality of light at a fraction of the power. This is good for both the environment and for the pocketbook, and it is also ideal for the corporation seeking LEED certification. This is especially true when considering cove lighting fixtures.
Combining a low voltage strip with an LED lamp compounds power savings with the latest and most sophisticated science of illumination to date.
LED Light Bulbs
LED festoon lamps can be installed in Phantom cabinet lighting, display lighting, or cove lighting strip at the time of manufacture. LED light bulbs last longer than any other form of bulb, can render the full spectrum of light, including white light, and require only 20% as much electricity as other bulb types. Combine that with a low voltage strip that is already designed for power savings, and you have the most sophisticated and energy conscious cabinet or display lighting strip that current technology allows.
LED replacement festoon lamps can also be ordered separately and retrofitted to existing linear strips. Ask a Lighting Agent about the benefits of festoon lamp replacement as a possible contributor toward LEED certification.
