Developing new techniques and products for our client requests keeps TechniLite ahead of the curve. One of our clients required our LED Edge Lit Light Source Panel to fit into a curved ceiling application. So our engineers went to work to develop a customized LED Edge Lit Light Source Panel. A curved LED Panel can be concave or convex depending on your application. It can fit behind display fixtures, around columns and corners and to hold various graphics. The limit is your imagination.
Visitors to your town, mall, store front, hospital, and airport need information 365 days of the year, 24 hours a day. Since stores and information booth staff require occasional sleep, you can’t always provide one-on-one contact to visitors who are passing through any time of day or night.
This is where a kiosk – typically a small structure that stays open 365 days out of the year and never sleeps – comes in handy. They can be used to tell a story, promote events and products or provide information. Not only can they tell you where you are (“you are here!”), but they can also tell you where to go (“you can get there from here”).
Location is critical for visitor information, and you may need kiosks at major entrances or the busiest locations. Kiosks complement the staff and volunteers that provide information and aren’t meant to replace them. As the famous Motel 6 slogan says, “We’ll leave the light on for you.”
In 1803, US President Thomas Jefferson won approval from Congress for a visionary project that was to become one of American history’s greatest adventure stories. Jefferson wanted to know if Americans could journey overland to the Pacific Ocean following two rivers – the Missouri and the Columbia.
It has been over 200 years since Meriwether Lewis and William Clark made their historic 8,000 mile, 28-month trip. What makes their travels even more amazing is that they did it without any signs that said, “Scenic Body of Water: This Way.”
Most travelers today do not have the time or the patience to travel the lengths that Lewis and Clark did. They just want to find their way through the airport from the parking lot to check-in. There are two primary signage issues that are critical to the success of finding your way: gateways and directional (or wayfinding) signage. Gateways introduce you to an area “welcome to our town”, “parking garage” or “shopping mall”. Directional signs help people navigate through the area, while telling them what to see or do, where amenities are located (parking, restrooms, local services).
The journey that Lewis and Clark took was a difficult undertaking. People these days are not looking for that type of challenge. Place your feet in the boots of those two trailblazers: identify the quickest route from point A to point B and post markers that show the way for those that follow.
Over 20 years ago, two Canadian engineers started designing and manufacturing high-quality lighting products. We called our company TechniLite. Over the years, we have engineered a broad spectrum T5 and LED lighting systems. We manufacture back-lit and edge-lit signs and panels using T5 and LED lighting systems.
From the beginning, we’ve responded to our customers’ special requests and varied needs with tailor-made solutions. When eco-friendly LED technology emerged, we designed a proprietary sign panel that diffuses light evenly for big-impact, energy-efficient visuals. Barrier-free requirements inspired us to create the thinnest possible signs.
Today, though we serve a broad range of retail and commercial display lighting needs and we continue to deliver the support of a professional manufacturing team and a top-of-the-line, dependable, custom-built product manufactured right in North America.
