LBL LED Illuminated Monorail System
LED Illuminated Monorail
Hand-bendable Monorail with a fiber-optic band of colored LED light.
State-of-the-art LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) brilliantly illuminate through fiber optic cabling that runs through the center of LBL’s Monorail. Simply plug in a single-ended LED generator at the ends of the Monorail and you have a brilliant, glowing Monorail. Each LED only uses 3 watts of energy. 32′ of Monorail glows brightly with just two generators. The system is fully dimmable and easily expandable. Compatible with all LBL 2-circuit elements. (This system is not a 2-circuit system.)
If you have been waiting to install monorail, Progress Lighting has made it easier and less expensive than ever.
The new Flex Rail Monorail kits have 10′ of rail and all of the components to install it in one easy kit. It uses line voltage, so you just wire it to a ceiling box just like any other ceiling fixture.
The kits come in P9010-09 Brushed Nickel or P9010-20 Antique Bronze finish. Continue reading
