Schwinn Hardware Introduces LED Lighting System for Furniture

Scottsdale, AZ, September 28, 2015

The innovation-focused hardware manufacturer, Schwinn Hardware, Inc., has introduced the first LED lighting system for furniture and closet hardware.  From lighted cabinet and drawer handles, furniture feet to closet hanging systems, the Schwinn LED Lighting System brings a whole new dimension to furniture design and functionality.

The key innovation is the replacement of  the standard M4 screw with a mounting screw equipped with fiber optic cable inserted into its hollow core. The LED light source is mounted inside the furniture and the fiber optic screws channel the light out through borings in the handle. This allows a designer to select any existing Schwinn handle which the factory modifies per order. The system also combines easy-to-install, ultra-thin adhesive film wire along with contacts for hinged cabinet doors and connectors for drawers so that designers and builders can bring LED lighting to any part of a furniture piece.

More than just visually compelling, Schwinn LED lighting aids in orientation in a room or hallway, prevents injuries and allows fast access to drawers, cabinets and closets in low-light situations. The system has very high longevity, low energy use and very low operating temperatures.

The Schwinn LED product line includes a lighted clothes hanging system which brings beautiful accent illumination to closets. It is ideal for residential and hospitality building projects and can be retrofitted to existing closets. Schwinn offers this system in a range of sizes and quality finishes to work with any closet or storage space design.

With a drill, screw driver and scissors, the LED Lighting System can be easily installed by home owners and builders alike. Applications include media rooms, bedrooms, kids’ rooms, kitchens, hotels, restaurants and retail spaces. “Schwinn LED lighting systems offer both functional and decorative solutions to my cabinetry and closet designs.  As the trend of bringing universal design concepts to the mainstream builds, I can now offer my clients mood, ambience and functionality with one product. I can count on it because it’s Schwinn,” said Mark Nichols ASID, LEED ® AP ID+C. To download the Schwinn LED Lighting System brochure, visit
