Light Pipe and LED Indicator Selection Made Easy

Bivar makes choosing a light pipe simple with two categories Rigid and Flexible
available in a full-line of standard products that can be customized for most applications.
Our LEDs fall into three categories Surface Mount, Through Hole, and Specialty LEDs. Combined with our light pipes engineers’ can appreciate the simplicity, design flexibility and cost efficiencies only available from a manufacturer who offers an all-inclusive approach to Moving Light.

Check out the interactive product selector below to learn more about our Light Pipe and LED solutions.
