A fiber optic swimming pool is illuminated by optical cables that transmit light generated from a remote source. These cables are built into the coping, walls, and bottom of the pool to create spectacular perimeter and underwater lighting effects.

An entire fiber optic lighting system can be run off of a single light source. The lamp generates luminance which is passed through cables to different landscape elements.

This makes them safe to install in bodies of water, such as swimming pools and waterfalls, as well as in gardens, trees, and shrubs.

Fiber Optic Floor

A fiber optic floor employs one of the most sophisticated forms of indoor decorative lighting ever developed. Optical cable made from glass or plastic is internally coated with a reflective, acrylic substance. This allows light to maintain its intensity even when it passes through a cable that has been curved. These cables can be embedded in a floor, a patio, or a deck to create a wide range of lighting
