How Does Kanvaslight Work?

Kanvaslight is a two-component kit that is integrated into a boat’s bimini.

The first component is the optical fiber infused fabric that uses the patented Lightex technology. This new e-textile allows warm light to be diffused throughout the entire surface of the fabric.

The result is a safe, alluring natural-light effect. No electrical current runs through the fabric. Therefore, there is no fire or shock hazard.

The second component is the remote LED light source that is powered either by the boat’s power system or on its own battery. At less than 15w it is highly efficient, safe, and practical.

The installation is simple.

Why Kanvaslight?

Because the right light brings spaces to life…

Proper lighting defines the entire mood and usability of a space.

Gone are the days of tacky string-lights that tangle and trip. Gone are the battery-hungry lanterns that don’t light up your space. Gone are the dead-before-the-party-is-over solar torches.

Instead, Kanvaslight’s broad surface, perfectly balanced brightness bathes the entire cockpit in a warm, inviting light that enhances your boat and extends your living space.

Dining, sharing drinks, and playing cards becomes a new experience.

Light fixtures matter during the day too. Kanvaslight is seamlessly integrated into the bimini or shade awnings keeping that clean-line that doesn’t detract from your boat’s appearance. There is no clutter—it doesn’t need to be stowed when not in use—yet it always ready for use.

…and it’s designed for boats.

Water, electricity, salt, wires, and motion—it’s a challenging environment for electrical components.

Many self-installed lighting options create shock or fire hazards and most can’t withstand the harsh marine conditions.
