Commercial LED Lighting

Why Choose LED?

LED Lighting is no longer a futuristic technology. Today, LED Lights are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. But, why choose LED Lighting over any conventional lighting? Not Sure? Well, let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using LED Lighting both in residential or commercial.

Energy Efficient LEDs:
LEDs are tremendously more energy efficient than conventional lighting, reducing not only energy consumption but also your carbon footprint.

Save Money LEDs:
Although the initial investments for LED Light is greater than that of incandescent and fluorescent light bulbs; however, the pay back for LEDs is so much greater, that it will save you money. LEDs use only a fraction of the energy of other light bulbs, saving you money on electricity bills. LEDs can last 50 times longer than conventional bulbs again saving you money on not only the cost of the bulbs but on the time and money spent on replacing blown bulbs.

No Mercury Content:
All conventional bulbs contain Mercury, whereas LEDs contain no mercury. Meaning Eco-Friendly Lights.

Dimmable:
An increasing number of LEDs being introduced are fully dimmable, which mean they are able to adjust their light levels. This advantage also helps for additional energy savings.

Instant Light:
LEDs have no warm up time, unlike other conventional bulbs. Therefore, LEDs reach full brightness immediately. While HID lamps have a delayed start and require up to 12 minutes to reach full illumination. Because of this, LEDs work well with motion detectors, timers and other controls, which may reduce energy use even further.

Easily Focused:
The light emitted from an LED is easily directed, unlike that of conventional bulbs, so you can direct it exactly where you want it when you want it there. Produces zero glare, Even and soft lighting; no hot spots.

LED Applications:

LED are now widely used in a variety of lighting applications such as commercial offices, manufacturing industry, hospitals, airports, hotels, bars, restaurants, clubs, lounges, parking lots, street lights, automotive industry, residential homes, retail stores, churches, schools and universities, and many other areas. Many of these places typically leave their lights switched on for long periods of time, sometimes for even 24 hours per day, so LEDs can offer significant savings in terms of electricity consumption, bill saving, as well as replacement costs.

Hopefully, this gives you a better idea about Why to choose LEDs over any conventional bulbs.

Long Life:
All LEDs have an estimated life of between 20,000-50,000 hours, in comparison to all incandescent bulbs, which have an expected life span of 1,000 – 2,000 hours and a maximum life of 6,000- 15,000 hours for fluorescent bulbs. Can be utilized in both extreme hot and extreme cold conditions. Highly resistant to shock and vibration.

Low Heat Output:
Most of the energy emitted from incandescent bulbs is converted to heat instead of light. That’s why you’ll burn yourself if you try to touch an incandescent bulb once it’s turned on. LEDs are cool to the touch. Emitting very little heat, LEDs can be used to light delicate objects such as paintings and canvases. They also have the benefit of reducing the work of air-conditioners. High quality aluminum housing for better heat dissipation.

No UV Emissions:
Unlike other light bulbs, LEDs do not emit Ultra Violet Light, which is particularly useful for museum s and galleries, where existing halogen bulbs can cause UV degrading of displayed materials. This makes LED a preferred light source for illuminating artwork, documents, and sensitive materials that can be damaged by UV radiation.

Control Capabilities:
Most LED fixtures can be connected to a controller to selectively dim individual LEDs and provide dynamic control of light distribution, light output and color. LED lighting with a suitable control system offers unlimited architectural lighting design possibilities. Ease of Integration Simple to replace existing lamp fixture Little to no wiring

Silent Operation:
LEDs produce no object able hum or buzzing noise.

Color Rendering:

LEDs are available in a range of colors, including white light. White light LED fixtures are available with a choice of warm to cool Kelvin temperatures to suit the application. 3000K (Warm White) 4200K (Natural White) 5000K (Daylight) 6000K (Cool White).

What does CRI mean and why is CRI important in LED lighting?

Can’t tell the difference between the black and navy colored socks in your walk in closet? Could be that your current lighting source has a very low CRI! Not all light is made equal; some light renders color better than others. Color Rendering Index (CRI) is the measurement of how colors look under a light source when compared with sunlight. The index is measured from 0-100, with a perfect 100 indicating that colors under the light source appear the same as they would under natural sunlight.

This rating is also a measurement in the lighting industry to help discern naturalness, hue discrimination, vividness, preference, color naming accuracy, and color harmony.

- Lights with a CRI that is measured greater than 80 are considered to be more than acceptable for most applications.

- Lights with a CRI that is measured greater than 90 is generally considered “High CRI” lights.

All of our products have 80-95 CRI ratings.

These lights have important applications especially for photography, retail display and grocery lighting, where accurate color presentation is key. High CRI lighting is equally valuable in home use, as it can transform a room by highlighting design details and creating a comfortable, natural overall feel,. Natural White High CRI LED Lighting offers True CCTV Footage for better security and crime deterrence.

With so many benefits, it’s easy to see why you should take notice of CRI when making your next lighting decision. Lighting manufacturers have begun listing CRI ratings on their products, and government initiatives such as California’s Title 24 are providing financial incentives for the installation of efficient high CRI lighting.
