Why Use LED

Why use LEDs as your light source?

Here are some of the key benefits.


Robust & Shock Resistant
LEDs are solid state devices which have no filaments or glass tubes to break.

Long Life
Depending on the type, typical life for an LED can be 50,000 hours (5 years+) to 100,000 hours (11 years+) continuous operation.

Energy Efficient
LED’s do not waste energy as a filament does which has to be first heated until white hot to emit light.

Low Voltage
LEDs can operate from as little as 5 volts but can easily be configured to work from a wide range of voltages to suit specific designs or available power supplies.

No Colour Fade
An LED is designed to emit a specific wavelength of light. This is defined in the LED manufacturing process, they do not rely on coloured filters or gels to produce a specific colour which could fade over time.

Fit and Forget
LED’s are low maintenance devices and require no servicing during their life.

Simple Installation
LED’s don’t require any starters, chokes or inverters to operate. They are fully dimmable and can be controlled with simple electronics.

Wide Range of Colours
The basic LED colours are Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Orange and White. Within each colour we can offer a range of shades.

Slimline Design
LEDs are physically smaller than many traditional light sources and allow unobtrusive slimline designs to be made.

Sealed Units
LEDs do not need to be changed as with fluorescent or filament bulbs so there is no need for a bulb holder / fitting or the need to make the enclosure accessible for changing the bulb. This simplifies product design as the unit can simply be potted in a clear resin to seal the unit. This also makes the unit tamperproof and more vandal resistant.
