Display and LED lighting utilize the latest technology to create new lighting possibilities for home and commercial applications. LED lights contain solid state technology similar to that found in microprocessors. This gives it advantages over conventional incandescent lighting and makes it more flexible to work with. Long-lasting non-filament lights are practical for commercial use and do not burn out suddenly, as standard bulbs do.

Display and LED Lighting Description and Applications

LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes, a new form of lighting that replaces incandescent and fluorescent lamps for many applications. These diodes contain no glass, vapor or filaments. They cannot shatter or burn out suddenly. In fact, LEDs are expected to burn brightly for up to 10 years or 100,000 hours. Over time, the intensity of the light diminishes, but this happens very slowly.

For these reasons, display and LED lighting is often used in the entertainment industry, at sporting events and in signage. They are a reliable and long-lasting source of light that requires less maintenance and cuts energy costs. However, LED lighting is also used for residential lighting needs. Strip lights and undercabinet lights can utilize these lights and, though the initial costs are higher, the savings realized over time can justify the investment.

Display and LED lighting also eliminates ultraviolet and infrared radiation that causes standard bulbs to emit heat. Thus they are ideal for museum and art lighting, where heat can damage valuable objects. These fixtures turn on instantly and can be cold-started. LED technology makes it possible to have greater design flexibility, and a reliable source of light that is virtually maintenance free.
