LED Bar Shelves Will Light Up Your Bottles and Make the Bar Come to Life
LED bar shelves that illuminate bottles and glassware (bottle glorifiers!) really do add that something special to your bar area A vibrancy and an alluring glow that can change the look and feel of your bar space. They come in three varieties. The first is the wall mounted variety. Some of these sport shelves that are 3/4 of an inch thick. The second is a single thin shelf. The third is 2 – 5 step shelves.
There are a few things to be mindful of because you part with your hard earned money.
The LED lights should be completely encased and water resistant. Ideally, you should be able to replace an LED light if it malfunctions.
Many of these shelves come with a wireless remote control allowing you to choose the color and effects of the shelves. Sounds bizarre, right? Some of them have up to 20 preset color keys, color fade mode with customizable fade speed control, dimming and flashing. You can even create and save custom color configurations.
Many of the companies state that their product is made from 100% acrylic and some infer that MDF is substandard for use in a liquid environment. MDF means medium-density fiberboard. It’s a kind of engineered wood made by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibre. Wax and a resin binder are added to it then panels are formed by applying high temperature and pressure. One of the companies that does use MDF counters that by stating that their product is laminated with a post form counter top grade laminate making it suitable for a liquid environment.
Just about all the products listed here use RGB LED lights. RGB stands for red, green and blue while LED stands for light-emitting diode. The benefit as you may have guessed is that you are able to change the color the LEDs give off. This is great for adding a “fresh” element to the bar area by changing the color and choosing a light that suits your mood.
