I need to remove a LEDpod™:
Every shipment of LEDpods™ includes our custom removal tool. As these tools can sometimes be a causality of jobsite cleanup and you find yourself in need, don’t hesitate to call.
The handrail process involves an often-complex interaction between many parties; architects, engineers, survey crews and installers to name a few. Getting a handrail to “drop in” is a rare thing. For this reason, handrail projects are always best done by local resources. Your local miscellaneous metals contractor will be able to complete the project with minimal drama, at a lower cost, with a much shorter lifecycle, and without the freight damage common to other systems. The flexibility and ease of installation of the LEDpod™ allows you to specify the light fitting and move on to other construction challenges, assured the project will be completed in the most economical means available
The holes which accept LEDpod™ are best machined while the rails are being fabricated. Using a magdrill, a simple fixture and an annular cutter, hole machining takes less than a few minutes per hole.
However, a low-profile magdrill and a fixture plate can be used to drill holes in an existing rail quite easily, while positioning the drill will take a bit longer.
The key in both cases is to minimize drill chatter by firm work-holding, the use of heavy lubricating fluid or spray, and letting the machine do the work.
The LEDpod™ is the only point source on the market with a patented design which provides a truly asymmetric throw. This allows the fixture to be mounted at the rail nadir, eliminating the glare-producing rail rotation common with other systems. Our light shaping reaches more than 6’ from the point of installation, giving you even illumination across very wide stairs or ramps.
The patented design of the LEDpod™ eliminates the time consuming and messy process of threading the fixture holes. You are assured of proper light alignment and output every time, without the need to index the fixture prior to threading into the rail.
The LEDpod™ is naturally tamper-resistant due to its patented installation design. It is just not apparent as to how the fixture is removed. We can report no known instances of theft after thousands of installation.
However, we do offer an added measure of security with our TP fixture which features a different design. Removal of the LEDpods™ in this configuration is achieved only with a removal key supplied by KLIK USA. As these keys are controlled, they are available only the sourcing party or owner.
As members of the National Ornamental and Miscellaneous Metals Association, chances are we have a fabricator member in your area. We’ve also worked across the country for more than 15 years and have a wide network of firms to recommend
Remote distance and max run length depend upon driver load. A driver running less than maximum wattage for fixtures will provide increased remote distance.
In general, we can be 125’ from the driver to the first light at max fixture load. However, with pre-planning we can see run lengths of 300’ from a single driver. Call KLIK USA and we will gladly help with your load calculations.
The LEDpod™ family of fixtures is designed and ETL-listed to live in a hollow metal profile. A wood profile does not have the thermal properties required to move heat from the fixture.
However, we do offer fixtures for use in small metal cross-sections which can then be clad in wood. Further, our Ledstream ECO16 fixture is 5/8” x 1.1”, and can be mounted into a routed channel.
