Applelec Sign Components UK Ltd announced today that they have signed an agreement to distribute the Light Tape UK Ltd, electroluminescent product range within the UK Sign Industry.

The Light Tape electroluminescent range adds to Applelec’s extensive and award winning line of lighting products for signage, architectural, and other related lighting applications.

The move follows huge demand for these versatile, low cost, low power lighting systems, whose benefits have already been seen within graphic display cases.
