Illumination WALD STUDIO


Optic Arts

Optic Arts stopped by with their product line so we could see their updates a little bit closer and in more detail than when we stopped by their booth at LEDucation last month.

They have developed a family of linear tape called STP and is available in various wattages with a very tight pitch.

One standout product was their closet rod fixture that is designed with a polycarbonate strip at the top that helps prevent the hangers from scratching the finish and leaving a mark. There is also a prismatic lens at the bottom which was visually appealing to look at.

Optic Arts has also developed new clips that help with installation in the field. They have them in both joiner and feed connector versions and they allow the installer to connect components without needing to solder in the field. There are some limits with the design in that they cannot be combined with the STP series.

There are now three types of configurations when it comes to ordering product from Optic Arts.

  1. Field Configuration: provides all of the parts separately and the contractor is responsible for complete assembly including cutting to size. Products are available with a 2-3 day lead time.
  2. Field Assembly: provides all of the components cut to the correct dimensions to the site and the contractor does final assembly such as connecting the feeds to the power supply and inserting the LED strips into the extrusions. Products are available with a 2-4 week lead time.
  3. Factory Assembly: products are built to order in the factory and ready for installation on site. Products are available with a 4-6 week lead time.

We also got to test out the dimming capabilities of the vintage dim series. The low end was a little more orange than we would prefer, however they mentioned that you can customize the dimming curve to control how fast it gets to the low end of the color range.
