Understanding the Interaction Between Wall Colors

When considering the placement of a halo illuminated sign, it's essential to take into account not only natural light but also the color of the wall. The wall color can significantly influence how the halo light interacts with the surrounding environment.

  • Dark-Colored Walls: On darker painted walls, the halo may be partially absorbed, resulting in a slightly duller glow. While still visible and impactful, the halo effect may appear softer compared to a lighter backdrop.

  • Light-Colored Walls: However, light-colored walls have the opposite effect, the light reflects the light more thus showing a brighter halo sign
