Window Light Box for Retail Storefronts are Single & Dual-Sided
Single and Double Sided Light Boxes for Window Display Use
What type of window light box is right for your retail store? How many different styles are there to choose from? These are just some of the many questions that may arise when a retail store owner is looking to add more beautiful signage displays to their storefront. A window light box, such as the ones seen here, are ideal for use within a storefront display. These illuminated poster frames can be used to display signage and advertisements, which can help differentiate your business location from your competitors. These window light boxes, also called ceiling hung lightboxes, come with a hanging kit for an easy installation. As a result, these illuminated advertisement holders represent the latest development in signage displays for retail storefronts. An LED illuminated graphic will garner much more attention than traditional posters. Customers and passersby will be intrigued by the well-lit signs. Retail stores are also able to leave their window light box on during the night, long after the store has closed. This helps business owners to display signage for the next day, to lure patrons into your store at the beginning of your business day.
These one and two sided window light boxes are designed for long term use. Each hanging lightbox features LED lighting technology. LED bulbs last much longer than other types of illumination, such as T5 or halogen bulbs. The LED lighting within this window light box is rated to last approximately 100,000 hours of use (when used 24 hours a day, 7 days a week)! LED technology is also more energy-efficient, as it consumes much less energy. For example, traditional lighboxes use T8 or T5 fluorescent bulbs. Both of these require much more power to run, and therefore, use more electricity per year. While LED window light boxes have a higher upfront cost, the savings in your electrical bill will certainly pay off in the long run. To compare, a 34.5w LED lightbox uses 306kw in annual electrical use, while a 54w T5 or 65w T8 unit use 472kw and 569kw respectively. That means LED window light boxes save 46% electrical savings over T8 lightboxes and 35% savings over T5 models!
What features separate these hanging lightboxes from others on the market?
- Each window light box measures .83" thick, the thinnest profile on the market!

Each window light box comes with a hanging hardware kit. This kit includes the necessary hardware for converting your wall mount lightbox into a storefront, ceiling hung display. Each hardware kit comes with two polycarbonate brackets. These brackets measure 1/8" thick, and can handle the load of LED window light boxes measuring up to 36" x 48". These polycarbonate attachments feature a shape that prevents the lightbox from swaying in your storefront. Washers, bolts and an Allen wrench are provided for an easy installation. This hardware is necessary for connecting the polycarbonate bracket to the window light box. Also included in this kit are two toggle bolts, two ceiling hanger clips and four "S" hooks. The type of ceiling within your retail store will determine which hangers will be necessary. Finally, there are two 60" lengths of standard fishing line. This allows users to hang the window light box 60" down from the ceiling.

Ceiling hung lightboxes are sold in a variety of sizes in the main illuminated signage category. Each size comes in both a silver and black finish, for users to purchase the advertising solution that will best complement their displayed advertisements and their store décor. Airports often use some of the smaller sizes throughout various terminals to display advertisements of local companies. Retail stores utilize larger sizes, such as the 36" x 48", to display large promotional signage. Movie theaters also make use of LED lightboxes, the 27" x 41" size in particular. This size may seem a bit peculiar. However, the 27" x 41" lightbox is designed to display a movie poster.
Installing signage into this poster holder is very convenient. All of the models seen here come with snap-open frames to tightly grip onto the printed store signs without damaging them. Each side of the metal frame features a flat spring that clamps down. Advertisers simply need to open each side and then place the banner or poster into the frame, underneath the provided clear lens. After the poster is in place, users then need to close the sides of the snap frame to hold advertisements in place. These hanging edge-lit boxes are front loading, so there is no need to finagle with the backing. Store clerks are able to load and unload banners without undoing the hanging kit as well.
