High quality electronic control gear coupled with an IP65 rating means you are buying the most cost effective and durable trough light of it’s kind.

All of our trough lighting comes complete with bulbs and brackets so it just needs installing and is ready to go. The easy fit bracket system means positioning your trough light to illuminate your sign is quick and easy. Our trough lighting comes with 200mm adjustable wall brackets as standard and optional 300mm or 400mm longer brackets, powder coated to the same colour as the lighting tubes to give a stylish finished result.

Decide which length of bracket you need:

200mm Brackets (Standard): Lights signs up to a maximum depth (top to bottom) of 1 metre
300mm Brackets: Lights signs up to a maximum depth of 1.25 metres
400mm Brackets: Lights signs up to a maximum depth of 1.5 metres

Select the length of bracket you require from the options below. To get longer brackets is a one-off/single cost NOT per bracket. We will send you enough brackets for the length of light you order.

How many brackets you will receive:

The number of brackets we send is based on the length of the light you order.
  • up to 2200mm = 2 brackets
  • up to 3100mm = 3 brackets
  • up to 4900mm = 4 brackets
  • up to 5800mm = 5 brackets
and then another bracket for every 700-800mm after that.

This is just for your information - we will make sure you receive the correct number based on the length of shop sign light you order.

This lightweight, modern design is perfect for even the shallowest of sign fascias and will emit a bright, even light across the whole of the length of the sign. You have no worries when choosing shopfitDIRECT for your sign lights as they comply to all regulations: BS EN 60598-1: 2004 & BS EN 60598-2-1: 2004 – EU, EMC & CE Compliant.
