Full Description


LEDs are made in a variety of colours and shades. Simple electronics can control the brightness and duration of each LED so the effect you can get with an LED product are extremely varied. The market is broadening rapidly.
Simple LED modules Individual modules are usually produced in banks of 4 LEDs but they also come in a variety of different shapes and sizes and usually run off a simple 12v transformer. They can be installed without the need for an electrician.
LEDs can be bought ready fixed into a sheet of plastic or run along the edge of a piece of acrylic which can then be cut to suit the particular application. The tight formation of these LEDs means that a very even area of light can be achieved.
When fluorescent tubes are placed too close to the front of a lightbox you often see a striping effect. Fluorescent tubes are also short lived. If one goes you face an expensive call out for a replacement. LEDs allow for a thinner lightbox and a more even light source for your graphics. Long life and low maintenance means that site visits are much less frequently required. Just an occasional wipe-over should do it!
There are now retrofitting products that simply fit into current fluorescent and light bulb fittings. This is a short to medium term fix when you have a large amount of traditional lighting, like strip lighting, and don’t have the budget to change the fittings. You will instantly benefit from the energy savings associated with LED lighting. The most common products are fluorescent tubing replacement units and halogen replacement spot lights.
Neon is an eye-catching way to advertise your business. It is also very expensive to produce, takes high levels of energy to run and is bad for the environment too. Now you can simulate a neon effect with a range of neon tubing replacements. LED tubing can be cut and bent into any shape, much like traditional neon. But, because it runs cold and uses low voltage, can be installed by anyone – you don’t need a qualified electrician to connect to the mains.
Low energy LED products LEDs are low voltage and this gives us an opportunity to use solar power cells and wind turbines for the first time. It is now possible to have an illuminated sign that runs off its own power. Prime LED Lighting is the widely-known company that can provide you with a LED lightbox display at a reasonable price.
The LED market is, like all markets, filled with good products and bad products. LED lights are made on a single sheet called a wafer, much like computer chips. As many as 6000 LEDs can come from just one wafer. There are imperfections across the surface of each wafer so individual LEDs are graded once they are pressed out. Quality control differs from manufacturer to manufacturer so it is important to make sure you select a trusted supplier. There is a level of quality with LEDs ranging from the whitest, brightest lights through to the low cost mass produced LEDs that won’t last as long or give you the same quality of light.
