Global Lighting Technologies (GLT), Inc. (Brecksville, OH) now offers LED edge-lighting solutions that focus light into a high-performance backlight, or light guide. Because the LEDs are located on the edge of the light guide, there is better optical control for color and uniformity, fewer LEDs, better repeatability, and the thinnest possible lighting solution.

New solutions include edge-lit backlighting units for exit signs and all manner of egress lighting. GLT has also entered into the general illumination/solid-state lighting market with new edge-lit illumination for downlights such as task lights and troffers.
