There are many methods used to build a cartel con Neon Led Flexible, as many as there are installers in the world. Here we present the one that was the simplest and cheapest.
Materials you will need to assemble the poster with Led Neon Flex:
- Base on which to mount or stick the Flexible Neon Led: It can be an acrylic or wood. It can be cut to the thickness of the Led Neon so that it enters under pressure and it is not necessary to stick it, openwork to have a guide as shown in the video, O well, it can simply be drawn on top of the poster design to use as a guide.
- Drill: To make the perforations on the base that will allow the cables to pass back and the connections to be hidden.
- Contact adhesive: Acrylic glue. O well, use aluminum clamping guides.
- Aluminum clamping guides: These guides allow you to install the Flexible Neon Led on any surface, and the best thing is that they retain it under pressure, so they allow to reuse it for other later projects, if it's a temporary use.
- Cables: The power cables for each section and for the power supply. The diameter of the cables will depend on the size of the poster. To have a guide, a cable 0,75 mm2 section can support up to 8 barely, Neon Led Flexible meters will depend on the version used. You must consult us at the time of purchase the consumption of the version you are going to acquire. The cables of each section can be smaller in section than the one that goes to the power supply, since the latter collects the current from each section separately.
- Soldering iron and tin: For those who dare to solder the led strip. If not, We recommend that you opt for Led Neon Flex versions that use connectors and pins, such as the version of 8 x 16 mms (Wxh). Although the connectors can minimally affect the aesthetics, you can be sure that they work perfectly and speed up the assembly process a lot.
- Power connector: We recommend them only for the version of 8 x 16 mms (Wxh), since for other thinner versions the same type is not commercialized, being their replacement much less robust and do not usually maintain contact.
- Power supply: The power supply will depend, like the section of the cables, poster size, more precisely the length of flexible Neon Led to use. You must consult us at the time of purchase, the consumption of the version that you are going to acquire.
- Led Neon Flexible: There are several versions of Neon Led, each one has an ideal application. You can consult us at the time of purchase the version that best suits your project. In all cases you must calculate the sum of the length of all the sections of the cartel. Always leaving a margin for unforeseen, even more so if it is the first time that you are putting together a poster with Neon Led.
- Other tools: Cutter, pliers, pelacable (optional) and marker.
