LED Lights of UnCommon Interest with Stratus Tubing
Our LED tubing was put to a beautiful use with Objects of Common Interest in a Brussels
display. The architects chose our line of Stratus tubing (6" OD). The project came to us first in concept, design, and fabrication. The material
used to produce these lights is an Eastman Chemical Stratus formula. It has a PETG (Provista) base with a colorant that is specially designed to glow,
but not to reveal, the LED lights inside the tube. This display is indoors, but our Stratus tube is also UV stabilized for outside use.
The 6" OD bends were bent upon a 24" center-line radius and cut directly on the arc. The trick is to do this with 0% ovality and we have a process developed for this end.
It is also difficult to bend a Stratus tube of this OD to such a radius with no imperfections (which will obviously show up when the tube is lit.)
Here we see that the designers used our straight extruded Stratus tubing and bonded it to polished Stainless Steel U Bend for a fabulous effect.
