Benefits of LED Lighting

 



Long Life

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 100.000 hours. This is 11 years of continuous operation, or 22 years of 50% operation. If you leave on the LED fixture for 8h per day it would take around 20 years before you’d have to replace the LED bulb.

LED’s are different to standard lighting: They don’t actually burn out and stop working like a standard light, moreover, the lighting diodes emit lower output levels over a very long period and become less bright.





Energy Efficiency

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 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, 80% of the electricity is lost as heat. That heat wreaks havoc on the plastics that headlights, tail makers, fog lights, etc are made of. The low heat will help your car maintain the new look it had when it drove off the light.





Ecologically Friendly

LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like e.g 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. 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 are a perfect fit for automotive lighting systems that are exposed to rough conditions and exposure to weather, wind, rain or even external vandalism.





Zero UV Emissions

LED illumination produces little ratiated 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, archeological 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. Well-designed LED illumination systems 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 environments, such as for outdoor winter settings, freezer rooms etc.





Light Dispersement

LED is designed to focus its light and can be directed to a particular location without the use of an external reflector, achieving a higher application efficiency than conventional lighting. Well-designed LED illumination systems can deliver light more efficiently to the desired location.





Instant Lighting & Frequent Switching

LED lights brighten up immediately and when powered on, which has significant advantages for infrastructure projects such as e.g., traffic and signal lights.

Also, LED lights can switch 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 also in outdoor settings, by connecting an external solar-energy source and is a significant advantage when it comes to using LED technology in remote or rural areas.
