Suitable for backlighting onyx, translucent quartz surfacing, translucent solid surface and other translucent materials, SLABlite produces even and consistent edge to edge lighting across the whole surface. Creative lighting effects can be achieved with SLABlite’s 12- by 12- by 3/8-in.-thick LED panels. They are waterproof, generate almost no heat, last 20 years and can be easily be cut to almost any shape to accommodate curved edges and fixtures, reports the company.

SLABlite is the only backlight that can be custom cut on site. An installer can cut and shape SLABlite to fit around the sink, overhangs and edges as well. There is no need for templates and trips back to the shop to cut and shape the lighting. The light panels run on a 12-volt system and requires only 2 watts of power per sq. ft.

SLABlite eliminates uneven lighting, dark spots and hot spots, and because the panels are waterproof, this makes the SLABlite suitable for fountains, pools, spas, etc. The SLABlite has a 20-year/200,000-hour lifespan, making them a solid choice for backlighting countertops.

TylerCo is proud to report that its SLABlite installations have surpassed a million hours of use without having a single failure.

    How are these backlighting panels powered?

  2. Martina Says:

    Hello, I was wondering if these are sold through area distributors or only through the company direct or what?

    Electrical Requirements:

    TylerCo’s SLABlite panels require 12VDC to power the proprietary LED Light Strip. Proper protection of the DC Circuit is important to insure the life of the panels. A 60 Watt LED driver (power supply) is recommended for up to 24 Panels. Calculate proper fuse size based on .16 amps per panel @ 12VDC.

    The SLABlite website will give you more information and sample installations, http://www.tylercoinc.com/slablite.html

    These backlighting panels look very easy to install. Interesting.

  7. Richard Ashoff Says:

    TylerCo was asked to write an article for Int’l Surface Fabricators Association’s magazine, “Countertops & Architectural Surfaces”.

    The article details how to backlight translucent surfaces, the digital version of the magazine is online at http://www.tylercoinc.com/news.html

    Hello, we’re from Vietnam and we want to buy your Slablite for our countertop. But I wonder how can I buy them, through directly your company or sale agents?

  9. ONYX Says:

    Looks pretty convenient for on site jobs. Saves lots of measurement work.
