Slimline light boxes

Light boxes are a valuable business asset and are the most cost efficient marketing and advertising tool a business can use to promote their products. We at Snapper Display Systems are constantly striving to upgrade our products by using the latest technology to light up your posters as brightly as possible with infinitely even light distribution at the most economical price with the lowest carbon footprint. Snapper uses the most up to date technology in its LEDs, power supplies and light guide panels in order to achieve these goals.

In our factory we manufacture multi faced slimline executive light boxes as well as the thin LED edge-lit Aurora19 for use in menu boards. To further help fast food retailers change their posters as quickly and easily as possible, we have designed a hinged magnetic faced menu board especially for use in this quick paced environment. No longer is changing posters a chore. No longer do you have to be concerned with employees getting hurt or equipment getting damaged when the front overlay is dropped. No longer will staff have to climb up ladders to change the posters in the light boxes.

In the new hinged Aurora19 LED edge-lit light box, the front clear overlay is permanently attached to the frame. Simply peel away the front overlay at the bottom using the specially designed tab and slide in the new poster from the bottom edge.

Our range of free standing frameless fabric series light boxes can be either lit as single side or as double sided light boxes. These bright canvas displays are lit using the latest LEDs to give you a bright display at a low cost. The frameless fabric light box series is easy to set up, posters are easily changed and the light boxes can be mounted on castors for ease of placement.

We are the manufacturers of a range of light boxes using snap or clip frames for easy poster change.

Snapper Display Systems has the largest range of LED light boxes in Australia. LEDs are extremely economical to run and the technology in manufacturing LEDs is changing all the time. LEDs are getting cheaper to manufacture and their illumination levels now rival those of fluorescent tubes or bulbs.

We at Snapper Display Systems have been manufacturing slimline LED edge lit light boxes for many years and recently we introduced a new back-lit system using LEDs. At this stage this backlit LED light box is a little more expensive than traditional fluorescent light boxes, but they use 1/3 of the power and are equally bright. This initial cost is quickly offset by a savings in power usage.

Another great benefit with this new system is the design allows for easy replacement of the LED lighting strips, although that should hardly be necessary as LEDs have a reported lifespan of 50 000hrs.

LEDs are becoming more recognised as a lighting source in light boxes and very shortly fluorescent tubes will be phased out completely. Snapper Display Systems also has the ability to build light boxes with dimmers, chasing lights, fading lights as well as flashing lights and in a variety of coloured lights.

  • Produce extremely low heat emissions, which makes them extremely safe to use
  • Improved robustness and durability
  • Safe operating voltage of 12 volt
  • Do it yourself installation
  • Very small carbon footprint
