Tent interiors could be drastically different with the addition of SuperFlex™ lighting from Crosslink™. This futuristic lighting is flexible, foldable and crushable—Crosslink says the lighting is able to withstand nearly 1,000 crush cycles in a wringer test. The lightweight and durable electroluminescent (EL) technology is based on an inherently conductive polymer, known as PEDOT or polythiophene. It can be attached permanently or semi-permanently to the interior of a tent. In military applications, the company has attached thin SuperFlex panels to the inside of softwall shelters. When connected to a standard AC source, SuperFlex can produce white light. It can then be collapsed and packed with the shelter, unlike fluourescent lighting. Curious? Visit www.crosslinkusa.com.
The signature lit stars of Air Dimensional Designs (AirDD) are now available in a battery-operated version. The units now require only one non-electrical rigging point, meaning that you won’t need an electrician or a power drop. They offer a clean look with no cords to cover, and you can turn the lights on or off with one click of the remote control. Visit www.airdd.com.
