|Fibre Optic Starcloths|
Cloth, materials and construction
Any cloth can be bespoke to the client’s requirement in any shape or size.
The standard format consists of a face cloth manufactured in width multiples of 1.5m (5ft) and varying lengths, normally 1.5m (5ft) increments.
The cloth widths indicated are multiples of the fabric roll width.
Normally the face cloth is ‘Black’ Wool Serge – DFR BS.5867 certified or DIN 4102 B1 for applications within Germany.
The wool serge has a deep black pigment and has a personality, which enhances the effect of any light point as the cloth has very little sheen.
This face cloth is fitted with ‘velcro’ to the leading and trailing edges so that adjoining cloths can be fastened together for neatness.
Backing materials can be either black ‘Bolton Twill’ (DFR) or lightweight CS Trevira (IFR)
Each cloth shell can be fitted with tie tapes or eyelets and loose tapes to the top webbing for hanging of the cloths. The latter format allows for client replacement of damaged tie tapes without the need of sewing.
The total amount of points is based on an approximation of 10 per sq.m
High quality polymer strands fitted to a common end and highly polished for maximum light output.
Optics are usually configured to provide a ‘near and far field effect’ and this is achieved by supplying the looms with varying diameters from 0.75mm to 1.5mm.
All points are fitted to the wool serge through the warp and weft of the cloth and by means of a low temperature adhesive. This method does not damage the cloth in any way and allows for reconfiguration or refitting should any strand become detached.
Light sources can be supplied to the client’s request and can vary according to budget or specific requirements.
The standard light source is as follows
Steel box enclosure – black or white powder coated.
Light source options
Virtually any form of source can be supplied to suit the specific requirement.
Metal halide – similar specification to the above
