LED Lighting

The use of Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology in the lighting industry is now widespread.


What are the benefits of LED Lighting?

  1. Low power consumption compared to conventional lighting
  2. No ultra-violet output. The UV component of conventional lighting can cause damage to fabric.
  3. Very little heat is produced in the light output, reducing the cost of building air conditioning and allowing lighting to fit into positions too small for conventional lights.
  4. Lamp life is very long; most LED manufacturers estimate 100,000 hours.
  5. Ecologically friendly.
  6. Light weight manufacture.
  7. Coloured light can be produced by controlling the power to each primary colour, so no power is wasted.

There are two key areas where this technology influences the lighting industry: Illumination and Effects.
