With an established presence in the lighting industry for over 25 years, Spanlite delivers iconic illuminated features, combining bespoke products and comprehensive project services.

About Us

Spanlite initially launched with a single, innovative lighting product, LED Light Sheet.
Developed by founder Adrian Bowker, this unique lighting solution solved many backlighting issues and was quickly adopted by architects, designers and contractors.

As Spanlite's client base and project experience grew, our collaborative approach helped us absorb our clients' visions and challenges, and our creative spirit led us to develop a unique range of effective solutions that are perfectly suited to creating bespoke architectural illuminated surfaces that are easy to implement.

Today we offer a comprehensive set of made-to-measure lighting solutions and translucent surfaces to customers around the world, and our supportive project services help guide our clients through every stage of the design-build process.
