State-of-the-art Signage Lighting


The LightSources’ affiliate, Voltarc, designs, engineers, and manufactures indoor and outdoor signage as well as the wiring devices. As the industry’s leader, Voltarc’s products are available for a wide variety of hot, standard or cold applications. We create lamps that are used in signs for branding, exhibiting, retailing and merchandising, architecture, transportation and infrastructure, industrial applications and warehousing among others.

As part of the LightSources group since 2009, the Voltarc team is made up of the top engineers in the field who bring their expertise to produce custom-designed fluorescent sign lamps, neon tubing, long lamps, and U-lamps. Our innovative cup-cathode construction provides an unsurpassed electrical life and our lamps are an exceptional value with life ratings as high as 60,000 hours. This allows for a far lower cost of operation over the lifetime than with traditional T12 HO fluorescent sign lamps. Cup-cathode technology is also environmentally friendly. With extra-long life and easy interchangeability, our lamps make it easy to customize solutions for a sign-maker’s individual needs.

Did you know you can save money when you use Voltarc’s 9-foot and 10-foot lamps? These extra-long lamps are standard built in every way and can be used just like any other straight HO lamp. The benefit lies in the fact that they substantially decrease the number of lamps that would otherwise be needed and reduce labor costs for sheet metal work and wiring. Not only do extra-longs lower cost by reducing the number of ballasts and sockets that need to be installed and maintained but they also simplify maintenance and offer better performance.

We recommend using U-lamps when signage will be used to increase your profit making opportunity on the sign as well as to improve illumination. Our One TUFBEND® U-lamp offers cost savings by doing the work of two short straight lamps and result in fewer ballasts and sockets that must be purchased and installed. The enhanced illumination is a result of lamp ends being only inches apart in one raceway, not separated by feet. Single-ended lamp support also means less raceway work.

Another advantage to U-lamps is that they are ideal in tricky lighting situations. For example, regardless of configuration, they can provide illumination on any non-rectangular or odd-shaped frame such as a cowboy’s hat, a torch, an odd-shaped letter or a giant cactus.

LightSources and our affiliated companies represent the leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today. Our products are used world-wide in a multitude of applications and industries such as our avionic display backlighting that is part of the National Defense and US Space Program. Our team consists of the most highly skilled professionals that specialize in a range of innovative solutions.
