Thanks to KanvasLight, it is now possible to illuminate any part of the deck without heavy power installations. It was very important the bimini’s appearance is not disfigured by the lighting functionality.
Boat’s owners needed a large distribution on deck while committing to an eco-friendly approach of public health and energy consumption.
During the day, you need a bimini to protect against the sun and at night the bimini becomes a luminaire – SNA thinks different, so we decided to find a breakthrough to light up the deck.
The idea is very innovative. KanvasLight is made of optical fibers woven together and integrated into the canvas.
The technical challenge was to sew without breaking the fiber. This fiber weave is interesting because It’s an inert material that works without electric –power and remains insensitive to humidity. A led sends a luminous flux that propagates all along the woven fibers and produce a power but soft and no dazzling lighting.
