Applelec DC tested signage products

If we told you, you could get the same quality signage product but with a lower impact on the environment, the choice would be a no brainer, right?

Applelec have been busy eco engineering another signage staple to add to our growing eco signage range. Our new Applelec Eco Lightbox has been designed for disassembly and ease of recycling at end of life and is our most sustainable product to date.

Recycled bottle backlit skin

Printed with water-based, non-toxic, inks, its recyclable, interchangeable, skin is made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottle waste (2 bottles per square metre), whilst still maintaining print quality and vibrancy.


Wood-pulp backing

Replacing the standard rigid plastic backing we have selected a lightweight, rigid, fibre based, wood pulp backing that is made from locally sourced PEFC wood that is 100% recyclable and withstands store conditions such as temperature and humidity.

Recycled and recyclable frame

Coupled with its 32mm slimline profile, which is 100% recyclable, this is our lightest lightbox to date at just 4.2kg per square meter, over half the weight of our standard lightbox.

Bright, highly energy efficient LEDs

Bright illumination is achieved through the highly energy efficiency, high output SloanLED BrightLINE 2 LP which provides improved longevity, output, efficiency and brightness and comes with a 5-year parts and labour warranty. What’s more every Applelec ECO Lightbox order plants one tree through our partnership with JUST ONE Tree.

Perfect for internal retail environments, our Applelec ECO Lightbox combines sustainability and functionality without compromising on look, vibrancy and quality. As we said, it’s a no brainer!

“Design Conformity carried out an independent review of the new Eco lightbox and found it to have a 38% reduction in carbon footprint compared to Applelec's previous designs. Additionally, 69% of the materials can be re-used at the end of the LED’s life cycle, proving its sustainable design.”
