Incredible Fiber Optic Lighting for 2023

Fiber optic lighting is one of the most incredible elements used in an RV, Skoolie, van, or Tiny Home.  Fiber optics is basically almost like bringing the stars inside your Tiny Home through light, eventually for you to be able to look up at the ceiling and see these constellations of lights just shining on top. 

Fiber optic lighting uses fiber optics to create a continuous light source. Fiber optics are used because they can be bent, twisted, wrapped, and installed into tiny tubes or bundles with no loss of signal strength.

Fiber optic lighting also allows the lamps to last much longer than traditional lights as the fibers generate very little heat in comparison with filament bulbs or fluorescent tubing.

Imagine laying in bed in your skoolie, RV, van conversion, or Tiny Home and looking up at the stars and constellations on your ceiling created by fiber optic lighting.  They seem so real that you almost think you could see a falling star or the International Space Station slowly moving across your ceiling.

Fiber optics are an unconventional way of illuminating your tiny home, so some may find it difficult to understand what fiber optics really does. Fiber optic lights have been around for decades but this is not always common knowledge unless you were a mechanic or owned a mechanic shop back in the day.

Fiber Optic Lighting in Your Vehicle?

Even today, there has yet to be any major obstacle as far as incorporating fiber optic lighting into vehicles because engineers would usually design their components with enough space so that they could easily fit fiber optic lighting systems in without having to worry about it. 

Fiber optic lights are usually found on expensive luxury cars or supercars, but more and more regular vehicles are beginning to integrate Fiber optics into their car design such as the 2015 Mustang where most of the interior is made up of Fiber optics except for a few places such as AC vents or switches.

That is not the case with RVs, skoolies, van conversions, or traditional tiny houses.  To date, Spring of 2022, we are the only business that is installing fiber optic lighting ceilings in skoolies, van conversions, RVs, and tiny houses.

 Fiber optic ceiling lights offer an incredible way for people who do not have that much money to spend on luxurious gadgets inside their cars to experience driving at night with all its splendor, just like how it would feel floating through space or flying down a road with no boundaries.

Fiber optic lighting is essentially long thin transparent fibers that have been coated by phosphor on the inside and surrounded by a cladding of silicone. A fiber optic lighting ceiling is composed of a high refractive index core and a low refractive index cladding layer so that light entering one end gets totally reflected internally in every direction possible as it passes through the Fiber and reaches the other end where it is emitted from the Fiber’s surface. 

Fiber Optic Lighting Ceiling in Your Conversion Vehicle

Fiber optic ceilings for vehicles can be used to do all kinds of things such as in show cars or using them purely for decoration purposes. Fiber optic lighting is usually found in many different colors depending on preference but they usually emit any color you desire ranging from red, blue, green, purple, etc… 

Fiber optics can also be designed to change colors (fade) at preset intervals over time. Fiber optic ceiling uses flashing lights to create an illusion of movement, which in return creates a mesmerizing effect for the driver’s eyes to look at while driving down the road. Fiber optic RV and van conversion lighting are one of the most unique ways of personalizing your vehicle and making it completely your own. 

Fiber optics have come a long way since their creation and will continue to further develop Fiber optics further into becoming more accessible as well as cheap enough for anyone who wishes to light up their car from roof to floor with Fiber Optics.

The reason why fiber optic lights are so popular is that they emit full-spectrum natural light that helps make colors look more vivid and have a faster response time than conventional incandescent lights, which means displays appear brighter. 

We install the Fiber optic cables above the ceiling in a random pattern such that the angle of reflection on each cable varies constantly, making the entire surface a smooth uniform field of light created by the reflection of light from each individual fiber. 

Fiber optic lights are used to replace recessed canister lighting and downlights and are great for large spaces such as restaurants, hallways, restrooms, lobbies, and stockrooms. Fiber optic technology has come a long way since Carl Iwasaki invented the fiber-optic nightlight in 1970.

Fiber optics have been utilized recently in areas around construction sites to communicate with construction workers on-site, allowing them to remotely send messages via text message or email. Fiber optics have also found their way into aircraft by replacing traditional incandescent emergency lights that will continue to light up even when electrical power is out.

What lies ahead for Fiber Optic Ceilings?

The next step for Fiber Optic ceilings is to use Fiber Optic Lighting as a power source to charge people’s cell phones via Fiber Optic Cell Phone Chargers. Fiber optic ceilings are also used now in commercial buildings because they are easily controllable with a dimmer switch.

The industry trend for Fiber Optic Lighting is that more and more manufacturers will begin using Fiber Optic Lighting in lampshades, floor lamps, chandeliers, bathroom vanities, and even pendant lighting fixtures.

There has been an increase in the application of Fiber Optic Lighting in recent years due to the demand for low energy usage and high efficiency. This has driven manufacturers to develop new methods of producing brighter Fiber Powered Lighting, more efficient Fiber Powered Lamp ings

Fiber optic light ceilings can be found in many places, but we install up the fiber optic lights in your RV, skoolie, tiny house, or van conversion ceiling. It’s a great way to make the space seem bigger when you’re living inside of it for most of your life. 

Fiber optics work by sending little beams of light down optical fibers and diffusing them throughout the room. Fiber optic lights are one of the easiest ways to brighten up what would otherwise be a mundane space.

The fiber is made out of plastic, so it’s very durable and safe for enclosed spaces, unlike some other types of lighting that emit harmful gas or radiation. The optical fibers also put off very little heat so you don’t have to worry about burning yourself if you touch them (which is actually really difficult for most people because they’re usually encased in plastic).

Fiber Optic Lighting As An Accessory To Your RV

Fiber optic light ceilings are one of the coolest options for lighting your tiny house on wheels ceilings, especially for people who like to add a little uniqueness and style to their space.

Campers can sometimes use fiber optics without even knowing it – if you’ve ever been camping with an RV (or even just walked into the back bedroom when someone else was using their camper) you may have noticed small lights above your head that flare brightly when you turn on the main light in the room.

Fiber optic skylights work similarly to make a room look brighter than it is; however, it works by diffusing the light from several sources throughout the ceiling of the room instead of simply sending all of its beams into the one spot where you look up and see the light source.

Skylights are a great way to bring in natural light and make your camper seem even bigger than it is, but fiber-optic skylights can be a bit more of a challenge to install than the standard type of skylight. 

Fiber optic light needs to be routed through several different parts of the ceiling before it reaches its destination (that’s why you always see long strands hanging down from most ceilings) so you need an experienced professional who knows how to organize all that wiring without making it look messy and unorganized.

Fiber optic skylights are also usually more expensive than regular windows because they require special equipment such as optical cables to run them.

Fiber optic lighting is one of the more expensive RV options, so you’ll usually only find it in high-end RVs. Fiber optic lighting is becoming popular for campers because it’s an easy and bright way to add style to any room without too much work.

Fiber optics are durable, eco-friendly, and stylish – a great option for anyone looking to get the most out of their space.

Our equipment and installation process now makes it affordable for any RV owner, skoolie, van conversion, or Tiny House.

Benefits of a Fiber Optic Ceiling in your RV, Skoolie, Van Conversion, or Tiny House

The fiber optic lights ceiling in a Tony House can be a spectacular and stunning feature for the family and guests. Fiber optic lights bring many benefits to any skoolie, van conversion, RV, or Tiny Home, including:

Energy efficiency: Low energy consumption means you’ll save watts on your solar battery bank or generator. Fiber optics produce very little heat, so it’s better insulated than incandescent bulbs.

Long life: Fiber optic lights have an average lifespan of 100,000 hours (or 22 years if left on 24/7) [source].

Safe handling: While standard light bulbs get hot enough to burn your hand after just a few minutes, fiber optic lamps produce no heat whatsoever. Fiber optics also do not emit UV or IR radiation like halogen/xenon lamps do, so they’re safer to touch and install. Fiber optics are also pretty resistant to damage from vibrations or humidity.

Cool aesthetics: Fiber optic lights give a more pure lighting scheme than regular light bulbs because it emits just one wavelength (color). Fiber optics also produce much less glare since the light is sent into the fiber optic tube in many directions and not in one beam like halogen lamps.
