Lighting up the world with LED
The lighting industry is undergoing a radical transformation that has opened up exciting and ground-breaking possibilities, and it is all thanks to LED.
LED technology has come a long way since being introduced decades ago as mere light indicators of gadgets. Today, LED lighting has been rapidly gaining traction as a sustainable, highly efficient way to light up buildings and arenas. It is also a more innovative solution to provide increased security and functionality among communities and businesses around the globe.
With the growing use of LED lighting solutions, businesses are presented with unique opportunities to harness the many advantages of this evolving, environmentally-friendly light source for even more applications.
Meaningful innovations have made LED lighting more relevant than ever before, and in many cases surpassing the performance of conventional lighting sources. So, leaf through this guide as we explain in detail what LED lighting is all about and debunk some of its common misconceptions.
Benefits of LED Technology
The long list of advantages associated with LED lighting systems has led to the significant and sustained increase in their usage around the world.
Below are the key factors that have heightened the use of LED in both indoor and outdoor applications.
LED lighting is up to 5 times more efficient than incandescent and most halogen sources, providing significant energy savings. LED lighting is also rapidly gaining ground on fluorescent light. As more and more legislations, and new regulatory requirements limit energy use in new constructions and renovations, the use of LED lighting fixtures enables infrastructures to comply efficiently with today?s standards and regulations.
LED lighting sources are mercury-free and are therefore safe for the environment. Unlike standard fluorescent and compact fluorescent sources that contain mercury, LED lighting systems do not require special handling for disposal and/or recycling, and do not contribute to hazardous waste.
LED lighting sources have significantly longer lifetimes than traditional lighting technologies. This means less replacement and maintenance requirements, resulting in significant cost savings.
No emitted infrared or ultraviolet radiation
LED lighting systems provide illumination without emitting harmful infrared or ultraviolet radiation. Unlike conventional light sources which are dangerous and potentially damaging when used in heat-sensitive areas and tight spaces, LED lighting won?t degrade materials like plastic and fabrics as well as fade paint and dyes. This makes LED lighting fixtures ideal for use in retail displays, museums and art galleries, protecting the quality and aesthetics of the illuminated object. And because LED light sources have no UV emission, it is also known to attract small insects less unlike fluorescent lighting does, hence making LED a preferred choice for retail and hospitality, apart from homes.
LED lighting sources can withstand impact, vibration, and other disruptions. This robust quality makes LED lighting systems a better fit for extreme environments, areas susceptible to high vibration, and other environments where the installation and maintenance of traditional light sources may be more difficult.
