LED Lights are the latest technology in energy efficient lighting. LED stands for ‘Light Emitting Diode’, a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light.

The advantages of LED are now evident and they are fast becoming the most preferred source of lighting in residential as well as commercial establishments.

Long Life:

A long life time stands out as the number one benefit of LED lights. LED bulbs and diodes have an outstanding operational life time expectation of up to 50,000 hours. This is 8 years of operation as compared to CFL which have a lifespan of 9,000 hours and halogens which last for about 5,000 hours.

Energy Efficiency:

LEDs are today’s most efficient way of illumination and lighting, with an estimated energy efficiency of 80%-90% when compared to traditional lighting and conventional light bulbs. This means that about 80% of the electrical energy is converted to light, while a ca. 20% is lost and converted into other forms of energy such as heat. With traditional incandescent light bulbs who operate at 20% energy efficiency only, a 80% of the electricity is lost as heat. This also means that your rooms will be cooler and you will need to use less of your cooling systems which will add to your savings. The long operational life time acts as a multiplier and helps achieve even more energy efficiency, especially large scale and when thinking in terms of urban infrastructure projects, such as cities, railroads and airports.

Ecologically Friendly:

LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like mercury that are dangerous for the environment. LED lights contain no toxic materials and are 100% recyclable, and will help you to reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. The long operational life time span mentioned above means also that one LED light bulb can save material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs. This is a big step towards a greener future!

Durable Quality:

LEDs are extremely durable and built with sturdy components that are highly rugged and can withstand even the roughest conditions. Because LED lights are resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts, they make great outdoor lighting systems for rough conditions with exposure to weather, wind, rain or even external vandalism, traffic related public exposure and construction or manufacturing sites.

Zero UV Emissions:

LED illumination produces little infrared light and close to no UV emissions. Because of this, LED lighting is highly suitable not only for goods and materials that are sensitive to heat due to the benefit of little radiated heat emission, but also for illumination of UV sensitive objects or materials such as in museums, art galleries, archaeological sites etc.

Design Flexibility:

LEDs can be combined in any shape to produce highly efficient illumination. Individual LEDs can be dimmed, resulting in a dynamic control of light, color and distribution. A well-designed LED illumination system can achieve fantastic lighting effects, not only for the eye but also for the mood and the mind.

Operational in Extremely Cold or Hot Temperatures:

LED are ideal for operation under cold and low outdoor temperature settings. For fluorescent lamps, low temperatures may affect operation and present a challenge, but LED illumination operates well also in cold settings, such as for outdoor winter settings, freezer rooms etc.

Light Dispersion:

LEDs come with the versatility of dispersion of light. It can be focused or it can dispersed according to the need. A well-designed LED illumination system is able to deliver light more efficiently to the desired location.

Instant Lighting & Frequent Switching:

LED lights brighten up immediately and when powered on, which has great advantages for infrastructure projects such as traffic and signal lights. Also, LED lights can switched off and on frequently and without affecting the LED’s lifetime or light emission. In contrast, traditional lighting may take several seconds to reach full brightness, and frequent on/off switching does drastically reduce operational life expectancy.

Low-Voltage:

A low-voltage power supply is sufficient for LED illumination. This makes it easy to use LED lighting in outdoor settings also, by connecting an external solar-energy source and this is a big advantage when it comes to using LED technology in remote or rural areas.
