1. Classification Based on Usage Environment

a. Waiting Hall Light Boxes, Scrolling Light Boxes, Lamp Post Light Boxes, Kiosk Light Boxes, Residential Community Light Boxes, etc.

These light boxes are commonly found in large residential areas, shopping centers, supermarkets, schools, computer centers, and entertainment venues. Since these light boxes are typically smaller (approximately 3 meters or less) and have relatively low brightness requirements, side-emitting LED light strips are widely used. Side-emitting LED light strips are suitable for light boxes with a viewing distance of less than 3 meters. They can be easily installed horizontally or vertically to create uniform lighting without the need for additional power supplies, making them an economical and simple choice for such light boxes.

b. Cloth Light Boxes, Card Light Boxes, Vacuum Forming Light Boxes, Soft Film Light Boxes, Market Light Boxes, Subway Light Boxes, Airport Light Boxes, etc.

These light boxes are often installed along roadsides, streets, outdoor areas of large shopping malls, theaters, exhibitions, commercial districts, stations, airports, docks, parks, and other locations. Due to variations in size, thickness, and brightness requirements, it is recommended to use backlighting for these light boxes. LED curtain light strips, known for their flexibility in size and brightness, are ideal for meeting the diverse illumination needs of different light boxes. They can also be waterproofed for outdoor use, making them suitable for various applications.

2. Configuration Based on Thickness, Size, and Brightness Requirements

This mainly applies to LED curtain light strips, which come in various sizes and spacing options (e.g., 50cm, 60cm, 80cm, 100cm, 120cm; and spacing options such as 5cm, 6.5cm, 7cm, 10cm, 15cm). If high brightness is required, you can increase the number of light strips or choose high-brightness LEDs. Conversely, if brightness requirements are modest, you can reduce the number of light strips to lower costs. LED curtain light strips offer flexibility in sizing, and when configuring LED lights, the spacing between light strips should be less than the thickness of the light box.

In summary, proper configuration of LED lights for light boxes depends on the specific usage environment, brightness requirements, and size of the light box. By considering these factors, you can choose the right MIJI LED lights to ensure optimal illumination for your light boxes.
