Video Custom Glass High Bar with Recycled Glass Countertop

Posted on 19 July 2018 by cradmin

This video shared by Jeff Downing shows a unique glass countertop high bar located in Bradention Beach, Fla. The 126-in.-long high bar uses two custom supports and features a swirls reminiscent of pools of water and uses LED lighting to accentuate the features. It sits above a countertop made of varying shades of blue recycled glass, which fits well with the custom glass motif and color. It seems particularly suitable for a home in such a oceanic location as Bradenton Beach.

Embedded LED Light Pattern in Vanity / Countertop

Posted on 26 July 2016 by cradmin

This video put forward by Digital Ambiance shows a unique embedded LED light project, that is atypical of the standard backlighting for several reasons.

First the project was done using wood as the counter material, which isn’t often the subject of a backlighting project.However, the video did state that this type of thing could be done pretty much with any material.

Also, the backlighting wasn’t done in a uniform manner across the surface, as might be seen with onyx or other translucent materials, but rather shapes were routed into the top that were subsequently filled with a translucent opaque resin. Under the various shapes color-changing LED lights were placed.

Overall, while it is doubtful that many would choose this particular style for their home, the effect is just plain cool.

Outwater Offers Nova Sheet LED Backlighting System

Posted on 10 May 2016 by cradmin

Outwater Nova Sheet LED BacklightingManufactured to your specifications in any size, shape or color with several single- or double-sided lighting options to choose from, Outwater’s Nova Sheet LED Backlighting System’s Panels are designed to fit directly behind or beneath any flat translucent surface to without additional installation. Produced from optical-grade PMMA acrylic light guide plates, the panels are laser etched with multiple grooves at precise locations using patented 3-D V-Cutting Technology to create a uniform matrix. This medium serves to maximize and disperse even, edge-lit “frameless” illumination from the sheet’s discreetly integrated LEDs in its recessed edges across the entire surface of the panel. The system reportedly uses 70 percent less power than comparable fluorescent lighting and employs patented heat sink technology that increases the LED lifespan to approximately 70,000 hours. Light output can be tailored from 2,000 to 10,000 lux by means of an available inline dimmer with an adjustable color temperature range from 3,000K (warm white) to 5,300K (pure/cool white). UL approved for all types of projects, the backlighting panels weigh 2 lbs. per sq. ft., and are offered in sizes from 2-in. by 2-in. by 5/16-in. in depth (50mm by 50mm by 8mm) up to 59-in. wide by 118-in. long by 5/16-in. in depth (1499mm ny 2997mm ny 8mm).

Backlit Onyx, Solid Surface Applications

Posted on 18 March 2014 by cradmin

This video, put out by Nu World Distribution, shows a variety of countertop and various other backlit applications using onyx and solid surface. The company that made the video offers custom LED light strips and panels, so it is a bit promotional. However, it pretty much focuses on showing all of the various examples of what can be done with lighting to make a kitchen, bath or other project really unique and stand out.

While not all of the applications are countertop-related, there are enough ideas here to interest anyone in the countertop business.

As always, if  you have videos of interest to the industry or know of any, please send us a link at [email protected], and we will consider them for posting.
