What are the different types of LED light pipes?
LED light pipes are produced in three main styles: flexible, rigid vertical and rigid right angle, with either single or multi-unit configurations. Flexible light pipes are made from optical grade plastic and enable you to move light to a desired destination over greater distances. Rigid LED lights pipes are made from hard plastic and can move light in shorter distances in either a vertical direction or at a 90° angle.
Choosing the right LED light pipes
To capture the maximum amount of light, an LED must be matched appropriately to a light pipe. As well as choosing between LED styles, lens size and mounting requirements will determine the right LED light pipes for your project.
