Why LED?

Reduced Carbon Emissions

LEDs convert up to 80% of energy into light. This both reduces electricity costs and dramatically reduces carbon emissions, proving a beneficial choice for both and Domestic LED lighting installations.

Durability

LEDs do not contain a filament that can be damaged by shock and vibration

– making LED one of the most stable light sources available.

Reduced Heat and UV

LEDs emit minimal Ultra Violet light (UV). UV light attracts insects and can be harmful to skin, clothing and artwork. Heat emissions are greatly reduced with LED, which means they are cool to touch and perfect for heat sensitive applications.

Enviromentally Friendly

Fluorescent lighting contains mercury, a harmful toxin. LEDs do not. This makes LEDs safer to use and dispose of at the end of their life.

Instant Light, No Flicker

LEDs produce 100% light instantly, with none of the warm up time required by fluorescents. Plus, they are free of visible flicker – ideal to help prevent discomfort associated with traditional lighting.

Cost Effective

The true cost of a traditional lighting source is not only in its energy consumption. There is also maintenance over its lifetime, replacement labour, lamp outlay and disposal costs. With LED, these costs don't exist. LED is a Fit-&-Forget solution.

Reduced Power Consumption

Additional benefits exist for areas that use air conditioning, as the power consumed is reduced due to the lower heat emitted from LED lighting. This also extends the life of the air conditioning unit because it is not worked so hard.

Long Life

The life of LED is between 4 and 40 times greater than traditional products. What's more, they produce consistent light output over their entire life.

No Disposal Costs

LEDs also provide a green alternative at the end of their life as they contain no harmful chemicals. The Mercury contained in just one fluorescent lamp is enough to contaminate 30,000 litres of water beyond safe drinking level limits.
