History of LUMAsite: Originally manufactured for the sign trade, LUMAsite panels quickly became the standard of excellence for internally-lighted sign faces. For over 30 years, these sign faces have survived in the most severe outdoor environments, resisting damage from sunlight, hurricanes, rocks and other accidental and purposeful forces which would have destroyed ordinary acrylic or fiberglass panels.

By the mid - 1980's, architects and interior design professionals realized that LUMAsite panels impart and elegance to architectural and display lighting, glazing partitions never before visualized. Shatterproof LUMAsite reinforced acrylic panels soon became popular throughout North America, Europe, and several exotic locales such as Singapore. These items permit a choice of light transmissions and designer effects.

In contrast to their acrylic counterparts, LUMAsite reinforced acrylic-modified polyester panels exhibit a near-clear appearance and light transmission approaching that of glass. Crystal II and the SOS (satin-one-side) and POS (pebbled one side) variants offer high light transmission, but with gentle diffusion to delight the eye.
