Please read on to find out what makes a true starlight display, how we do it and why you should choose us.
Why choose us?
At custom fibre optics, throughout our full range of products, we only use the highest quality optical fibre and LED light sources available. We have been designing and installing starlight displays for over ten years and pride ourselves to be the best at creating natural, realistic displays in some of the most luxurious and expensive vehicles in the world and not only just vehicles but also restaurants, hotels, salons and many other high end establishments.
You wont believe your eyes once you see your vehicle lit up with hundreds of tiny twinkling stars and the ambiance it drenches your interior with. It truly is a classy and awe-inspiring look and feel that you wont tire of. That is of course, if its done properly by a professional installer who has experience in creating important detail with fibre or ‘stars’.
Having a starlight headliner installed into your chosen vehicle is the best and most high end, sought after modification you can get, its simply stunning, elegant and mesmerising and yet is totally discreet. With our fibres being mainly 0.5mm you’d never know they were even there until the display is illuminated, which is very impressive for anyone who takes a seat and realises the elegant night sky right above their heads.
At the heart of every fibre optic lighting display is the light source. The light source used is responsible for the colour, effects, longevity and most importantly, results in your display either looking like a tacky, flashy fairground ride or an elegant classy and realistic display. A starlight display should be exactly that, a realistic, awe-inspiring display that represents the night sky. When you look up to the stars at night what do you see? Perfectly spaced stars all of the same size and intensity, flashing on and off together ? I don’t think so… This is the type of effect you get with inferior products and inexperienced installers.
What we alsways provide with our examples are stars of various sizes, a near-far 3D illusion with different light intensity, random clusters and spaces, softly twinkling independently… That’s what is really going on up there in the night sky and this is exactly the type of effects we can produce with our carefully sourced light engines and skilled craftsmen. We wouldn’t settle for anything less, neither should you.
How do we do it?
One thing we always do is use mixed diameter fibres to create large and small stars which creates depth and realism. With a carefully thought out star-field design to look as natural and life like as possible and a hand picked light source from 100’s available is what enables us to create the best starlight effects that can produce a mesmerising twinkle effect that can also be edited by the user to be as slow or fast as they like. Whats more, the technology inside our machines can produce a twinkle effect that enables each star to fade through different levels of intensity independently to one another, instead of all flashing at the same time.
We don’t use off the shelf ‘kits’ we create each fibre harness ourselves from scratch for each individual vehicle, we create custom kits which will guarantee not only the perfect amount of stars that you desire but also the lengths needed to safely and conveniently install the light source somewhere that will be accessible for future maintenance. With our top of the range light engines you can be sure you wont have to worry about an expensive repair but instead can simply swap out to another plug and play light source at your own convenience without having to remove fragile equipment and accessories.
We give you full choice of how you’d like to control your starlight feature. As well as being able to turn the display on/off you can also choose the speed of the twinkle effect and the colour options.
As usual, Custom Fibre Optics are ahead of the game when it comes to bespoke lighting designs. No other company can currently offer you the service we can provide.
We make sure each and every star is carefully fixed and terminated in place as it should be so whether lit or not, your headlining looks exactly how it was previously with unobtrusive, close to invisible stars that you’d never know where there until illuminated.
Not only are we the best at creating life like, realistic star-field displays, we also pride ourselves in having a talent at creating all kinds of bespoke patterns and personalised designs. We can create displays such as swirling galaxies, milky-ways, constellations, company logos and much more.
With us you have the freedom of choosing the quantity and layout of each star, the size of each fibre used and its colour and intensity.
Custom Fibre Optics are pleased to offer special animated effects such as shooting stars, meteor showers, moving logos and text. You could have a specific logo appear and disappear or have the odd shooting star pass by now and again to compliment your starry night sky. There are many possibilities and different features we can create with our skills and expertise.
We’ve been designing and creating starry ceilings for nearly ten years. We know a thing or two when it comes to making an elegant and classy looking starry ceiling product.
We always use mixed diameter fibres, it creates a 3D, near-far effect and we make sure they’re carefully placed in order to look natural and realistic. We also tend to stick to 0.5 and even 0.25mm fibres as they produce a finer point of light which looks a lot classier than larger fibres. We’ve had nothing but great reviews and often exceed clients expectations.
You can trust us, we have many examples of our talent in the form of hundreds of starlight displays which have been installed all over the UK and abroad in hotels, restaurants, salons and spa’s to name a few.
