Walk into any mall or a modern retail store and you’ll see jaw dropping prints in a thin light box. These boxes are also referred to, as translite LED panels. The high quality prints inside are on a film called translite. These special films allow light to pass through. The backlit effect gives a very vivid effect and adds a punch to the print.

While this low cost solution is ideal for outdoor applications, it just would not work for the interiors of a high end retail store. The slim line Translite LED panel is exactly what it says. At less than half an inch thick, it is very very slim. As you can see from the pictures above, the panel is made of an acrylic sheet framed with an aluminium profile. The LEDs are installed in the inner edges of the frame. This is why, these types of frames are also known as ‘Edge Lit LED Frames’. The light given off by these LEDs is extremely vibrant and uniform.
Translite Prints Can Be Changed
The LED frame is a one time investment for you. The aluminium strips on the sides hold the acrylic sheet in place. But you can easily pop them open. A new translite print can then be inserted behind the loose sheet of acrylic and locked under the clipon aluminium frame once again. You can keep changing the images inside at just the cost of a new print.
