Fine art lighting

Highlight your art and portraits with the elegant and stylish Ektralamp LED picture lights. The lamps are available in standard widths of from 10" to 60" but can be custom-built to any size, in one inch increments, to perfectly light your hanging artwork. The inconspicuous light tubes are smaller than one inch in diameter and are available in aluminum, satin brass, black, or bronze colors. Using LED technology, the lamps protect your precious artwork by radiating no heat or UV, while consuming little energy.

Even illumination

With 18 LEDs per foot of lamp width, these unique art lamps provide even distribution of light across your picture with no hot or dark spots. The angle of light is easily adjusted by rotating the light tube. You'll never again need to replace a light bulb, as the LEDs have an expected useful life of over 50,000 hours (about seven years of continuous use).

Whether you have prints, etchings, oil paintings, photographs, old masters, fine art, portraits, or just favorite pictures, you can proudly show off your treasures with the effective illumination provided by the Ektralamp picture lights. Natural color brings out all of the details of your artwork.

Our unique design eliminates light spillage to such an extent that it is often hard to detect the source of illumination.

Lamp sizes

Normally we recommend that lamps be approximately four inches shorter than the width of the picture (measured inside the frame). This sizing will assure that the width of the art is lighted with minimum spillage on to the wall. While standard lamp widths are 10", 20", 30", and 40", we can build lamps to any size in one inch increments. We have provided lamps as small as 7" and as wide as 100"

Lamps lessthan twelve inches have a single mounting leg. Lamps between 12" and 40" have two mounting legs, with larger pictures having three or more mounting legs depending upon the width of the lamp. We can also provide custom mounting to accomodate your unique situation.

The lamps project seven inches in front of the picture, and the height above the frame is adjustable.. The lamps can be mounted either to the back of the picture frame or to the wall behind the picture, As the lamps operate on low voltage (12 volts), thin power cables can be snaked through the wall. An optional remote control can be used to turn the light on or off and adjust the brightness of the light.

Light colors

The standard light color for the art lamps is a warm 3000K, similar to incandescent lamps. We can also provide a daylight color of 5000K.

Lamp colors

These are our standard art lamp colors (other colors can be custom ordered - call to discusss.) Brass lamps are made of solid brass. All other lamps are solid aluminum.
