Fibre optics are ideal for those who have difficulty in enjoying the normal range of lighting effects. Partially sighted people may have a range of differing abilities. The powerful effects of these products are aimed at breaking through the perceptual barriers that some people with disabilities may have.
Fibre optics stimulate and hold attention. They are safe to touch and latex free but should not be mouthed; those with this tendency should be closely supervised.
There are a number of fibre optic products on the market.
Fibre Optic Carpet and Cloth
Made of a high quality carpet that has optical fibres woven into the pile creating a stunning, shimmering effect of continually changing colours.
Provides texture, ambiance and visual interest.
Fibre optic strands can also be woven into light weight material suitable for mounting on walls and ceilings. A ceiling mounted fibre optic panel has the effect of bringing a starry night sky into your multi-sensory environment, a magical effect.
Fibre Optic Chandelier
Fibre optics lend themselves to a variety of visually impactful and stimulating products.
The fibre optic chandelier is a good example of how fibre optics can be used in a sensory room to provide a wonderful focal point.
As with other fibre optic products, the colour of the chandelier can be switched to blue, green or red or gently cycle through a spectrum of colours.
A spectacular “waterfall” of shimmering, colour changing light. A beautiful effect and a treat for the eyes.
Hang over a doorway or within reach of some comfortable seating for a visually engaging and tactile experience. Made with safe plastic tail fibre optics.
Fibre Optic Light Source
A key part of any fibre optic array is the light source. This is a mains powered lighting module that plugs into the fibre optic product and generates the lighting effect.
Once powered by filament bulbs, light sources got very hot. With the advent of LED technology this problem has now been resolved and today’s light sources are cool running and safe.
