Just the FAQ’s…

Over the years, I have fielded a lot of questions from people regarding our light boxes – more recently the LED products.  I thought it would be helpful to list some of the most frequent and common ones for easy reference: 1). How large can DSA make its LED light boxes?  We have the unique capability to manufacture LED light boxes up to 60x120 in size. 2). What is the color temperature of your LED light boxes?  The standard color temperature is 6500 Kelvin, +/- 500, however, custom temperatures are available as low as 3000 Kelvin) 3). What type of graphic is used in a backlit light box?  Images are printed on a translucent material such as Duratrans and are 12-15 mills thick. 4). What if I just want an LED panel to backlight a stained glass image or piece of art?  DSA can provide an LED panel without a snap frame in any size, from 8x8 up to 60x120, that can backlight your art. 5). Do you have any stands that can hold the light box?  Yes, we have many stock and custom designs to choose from that can meet your exact needs. 6). Do you make your own light boxes?  Yes, we manufacture over 90% of what we sell in our factory, but we also import some cost effective signage from Asia for cost sensitive projects.

Hi Mary,

The life expectancy of a backlit film print (Duratrans is a brand name for one type of backlit film) depends on whether the print is used indoors or outdoors.

Outdoors, the average life span for a backlit film print is 3 to 7 years. Indoors, a backlit film print will last anywhere from 7 to 10 years.

These are average values and print life expectancy will vary depending upon installation conditions. Exposure to sunlight, extreme temperatures, and humidity can cause premature wear to prints.

For longevity, it’s best to keep prints out of direct sunlight and protect them from moisture/humidity and/or temperature extremes.

Regards,
Marie
