The Slim Light system is an extremely thin (less than 3/8" thick) linear lighting solution. The lightweight, low profile design allows for unobtrusive LED lighting and hidden installations. Our patented optic provides smooth, even light. The Slim Light is ideal for under-cabinet and under-shelf lighting.
LED lights can last well over 50,000 hours, which is about 5 years if kept on all day, everyday. Unlike HID and Fluorescent lamps, LED lighting turns on instantly and is not adversely affected by being turned on or off.
By using the modular connectors, multiple lamps can be installed in a row, quickly and easily. You can also make 90 degree turns.
Each package includes slim light, 2 mounting clips w/ screws, and power transformer.
Let There Be Light
By Sherrie Siemens
Everything seems a little bit brighter with good light. Today I am reviewing the new studio Slim Light from Light Beam Ind. I have some dark spots in my studio and this light was the perfect fit for under my shelves. It was definitely easy to mount because I managed to do it myself! You screw in two easy mount clips and the light fits into the brackets. It is beautifully slim and professional looking.
I really like the “kind” of light it emits. This is a natural white light that does not give any blue or yellow tones. I love that it does not throw off my white balance especially when I am doing my coloring!
I also appreciate the fact that I do not turn into a roasting chicken sitting under this light! It stays cool and uses very little power to operate, unlike the pot lights that are mounted under my kitchen cabinets.
I love seeing my studio in this new light!
I Can See Clearly Now
By Debbie Olson
Call it a hazard of the trade, or call it older-than-they-once-were eyes, but it seems that I need better light to be able to work comfortably than I used to! I have a new addition to my studio tools that has been a great help, my Light Beam 12" Slim Light Pro.
I'm using the 12" Natural Light, which uses only 3 watts of electricity, but brightens up my counter top considerably as you can see from the before and after photos in my gallery. Installation was super-simple. It came with clips, though I have to confess that I stuck it up with two strips of foam tape to decide upon placement, and it's still stuck, over a month later. I don't think foam tape is recommended, so I can't tell you to use it--just that I haven't switched to the clips yet. The light strip has not felt more than slightly warm to the touch, so I'm not worried about heating up the underside of my cabinets as another type of direct lighting over my stamping area does. (Yes, it's probably getting replaced with a Slim Light strip.)
While I have placed my first Slim Light over my Genesis Trimmer to brighten up my cutting space, I've ordered a second one to go over my die-cutting area and a third one to go over my airbrushing area. I've already told Rick that I really want them in the kitchen to. I'm sure he'll come around, especially when I remind him of how much energy we would save over having the big can lights on that light only the FRONT part of my kitchen counter tops!
Light Up My Life
By Colleen Schaan
I was lucky enough to be able to design and build my own art studio. One of the major issues that kept coming up in the planning process was lighting. I needed lots of it and it needed to be as natural as possible. I planned ample counter space to work, but I realized that I would end up with dark shadowy areas created by my row of upper cabinets.
My solution? The Light Beam Studio Slim Light. A 12” strip of low-profile LED lights, it offers bright, natural lighting. It was a snap to install and the low-profile allowed me to hide it easily under my upper cabinets. I can now use my airbrushing station without having to worry about shadows and dark spots; and the lights stay cool to the touch, so there’s no heat build up either.
I plan on purchasing more Light Beam Studio Lights so that I can mount them under each of my cabinets… creating a whole room full of beautiful, bright light! My new Light Beam Studio Slim Light… it’s the bright, shining star of my studio.
Out of the Darkness
By Lydia Fiedler
I was in the lighting business for almost twenty years, so I've seen, used and installed a lot of task lighting, and not all of it has been great.
But when I got this little teeny 12" Slim Light the first thing I said was, "Wow - that is the size of a piece of bacon!" I was truly amazed at how thin it was and I couldn't wait to try it out with the colossal furniture mistake I made when setting up my craft room - black hutches over my desk. They're pretty, but they create this terrible black hole behind my monitor that just swallows up the light on my desk. I plugged in the Slim Light and it was like I had a new room! Not only was it surprisingly bright for its very slim profile, but it was a crisp, white light that is so different from the odd blue glow of fluorescent lighting.
LED lighting has come a long way since its introduction and this light quality is perfection for papercrafting. I took out my color wheel, my cardstock swatches and several card samples and the color rendering is excellent. Since my room hums with computers, printers, heat guns, a TV and more, I was also excited to see it is only a 3W light source. I will definitely get more of these for under my hutches. I also think it would be great under-cabinet lighting in the kitchen. My only problem with this product is the ginormous quantity of dust bunnies I have now discovered in the newly illuminated black hole behind my monitor.
