Advantages of LED illumination
Cost – LED illuminated signs are cost-effective now and not much different to other forms of lighting in terms of the cost factor.
Technology – the ever-increasing rate of technology means that 3D LED signs are another option available to our customers. LED illumination is advancing at the same rate as other areas of technology making it more compatible with various devices.
Durability – Most companies and individuals are concerned with cost saving, as well as energy efficiency, so LED illuminated signs will last much longer than other traditional means of lighting as the LED power cells can be used for extensive periods of time.
Low heat output – LED illuminated signs produce very little heat whilst producing light at the same time. This helps the energy efficiency as well as ensuring that they are safe for the public, whether it is an illuminated exit sign, custom banners or outdoor LED signs
Energy saving – due to most LED powered devices consuming about a third of the energy compared to other lighting options, LED illuminated signs are in fact more energy efficient and therefore cost-saving in the long term. Especially when compared to neon signs which are a high energy method of illumination as well as a pollutant. This also means that LED illuminated signs create less pollution too, as less CO2 is produced.
Brightness and colour – with improved technology relating to LED signs, there is a much wider variety of colours and degrees of brightness available today giving you more options.
Weather and environmental impact – LED illuminated signs are able to withstand most types of weather. The nature of their design means they are more resistant to bad weather than traditional illuminated signs. They can be used outdoors which increases their appeal. Their design can protect them from water, whether from rain or if used indoors, from spray from fountains as well as swimming pools.
How does LED illumination work?
Fluorescent tubes require a lot more power to produce light than LED lights due to semi-conductor diodes emitting light. Photons are emitted when an electric current is applied to the semiconductor junction. Colours can be created by mixing the light from various LED’s, alternatively by using different semiconductor materials which send out photons of various wavelengths.
Types of outdoor LED signs
Lighted outdoor signs, as well as outdoor LED signs are a great signage solution. Outdoor LED signs offer more impact and are also more energy efficient than lighted outdoor signs. Their purpose is to create an impact. Outdoor LED signs can range from subtle custom illuminated signs that blend in with the exterior landscape to bold and impactful structures. This is one of the great benefits of being able to design your own LED sign. The effects of a custom illuminated sign for business can be bolstered further by incorporating illuminating glass or even fabricated letters.
Illuminated stop signs combined with flashing LED’s and reflective sheeting provide the most visible option available. Visible during the day, at night, in rain and fog, it is the perfect sign for high-incident areas. The LED stop sign is visible from a far distance and the flashing lights make the sign more noticeable.
Custom Illuminated Signs For Homes
Illuminated house number signs can be achieved by using LED lights that are wireless and solar powered and can be placed anywhere in your garden without needing to use electricity, providing you with an LED light house number. This same can be applied to LED light street names and LED light street numbers.
You can also create custom LED light signs which can be achieved with a decorative and charming glow to your patio or driveway with an LED glow sign board design of your choosing.
LED Signage Message Boards
LED signage message boards are affordable, low maintenance and easy to install. Depending on your LED sign board design, you have the option to display animations, logos and messages, amongst other things directly from your computer. LED signage message boards are very popular amongst schools, churches and companies that are promoting events and services. One of the major drawing cards for creating your own LED sign board design is that you can change the message easily directly from your computer.
