LED Light Coves

Prefabricated light coves are a popular feature of many construction and refurbishment projects. The reason they are so popular is the stunning effects that can be created using this type of lighting feature.  Many architects incorporate these into their project designs.

The use of V-Cut plasterboard light coving for projects offers you a cheaper and more versatile way of achieving these desirable lighting effects.

We Turn Your Ideas Into Real Plasterboard Profiles

V-Cut profiles open wide possibilities to produce intricate and often difficult to form on-site details like light coves.  The tendency to produce these in GRG is not only wasteful but also expensive.


Elements such as light coves can be intricate and difficult to create on-site. Using materials like GRG the process can be expensive. Using V-Cut prefabricated light coves and recessed light troughs gives key time and cost advantages. Manufacture with our specialised machinery allows for faster installation for you on-site.

Moreover, indirect light features would normally be formed using expensive moulded materials. This can give an installation something of a mix and match appearance. But because a V-Cut plasterboard coving profile is made from the same material as the rest of the ceiling, it blends beautifully.

V-Cut light coves and recessed light troughs are:

  • Simple to form with our machinery
  • Allow quick installation on site
  • Use the same materials as the rest of the ceiling
  • A Plaster in solution

Indirect Lighting Coves

These recessed indirect light features would normally be formed with expensive moulded materials but V-Cut coves are produced from standard plasterboard eliminating a mix and match style.

Bringing projects to life

V-Cut plasterboard coving and plasterboard profiles are bringing some of the most imaginative projects to life. With an experienced team turning customers’ cherished ideas into stunning installations. Projects that were once deemed too complex or expensive are now possible.

V-Cut process plasterboard so that it can be folded and formed into simple or complex plaster profiles. This allows us to manufacture bespoke, high-quality installations off-site. Because the process is faster and there is less waste, it is a more cost-effective solution for your project. We provide the perfect service for designers, contractors and distributors who are looking to turn great ideas into reality.

LED LIGHTING – Standard V-cut light coves

LED light strips are optional and can be provided as warm or cold white as well as mixed warm/cool and coloured RGB modules.

LED lights:

  • Are energy efficient having low power consumption rates
  • Have long life cycles
  • Give off little heat
  • Create an homogenous illumination without shading.

A perfect partner to V-Cut’s coves.


We supply a range of standard prefabricated light coves either with or without incorporated LED lights. This is in addition to our recessed light coves or “top hat” recesses. Optional LED light strips can be provided in warm or cold white or colour RGB modules.

LED lights consume less power, last longer, give off little heat and provide consistent illumination without shading.


A recessed trough complete with LED light strips bleeding intense light from a 25mm wide factory machined slot in the wall or ceiling boards. The slot has chamfered edges which produce a cross pattern when it transverses from the ceiling to the wall.


A plaster in visible slot light just 12.5mm thick deep x 20mm wide to create stunning patterns in a ceiling or wall. The luminaire is an extrusion complete with LED strip and diffuser cover which snaps into a bead section fixed into a cut in the plasterboard – all no deeper than the plasterboard making it ideal for post fixing. Linear intersecting lines can create patterns of light in the ceiling or wall fulfilling the designer’s artistic flair.

Strait Lights

Strait lights provide intense light from a factory-machined slot cut into plasterboard on a wall or ceiling. The light is supplied by an LED strip and diffuser cover which clip easily into the slot. The slots can produce intersecting lines of light across walls and ceilings, creating a striking effect.


Something unique! Something special!

Light that is invisible until switched on.

Silent Light features built-in LED lights hidden behind a panel with an acoustic facing. Suitable for both walls and ceilings, white or colour-changing lights can be used. For an even more dramatic effect, linear or curving patterns can be built-in.


Recessed into a factory-formed plasterboard cube, the LED Kewb light offers a cooler, more intimate kind of light. It can be installed in a ceiling, or supplied with up and downlights to create an outstanding wall feature.
