LED signages has gained traction throughout the short time since it was introduced.
Thinking along the route of lighted signage to advertise and make your business known?
Illuminated sign boards come in three types – fluorescent, neon, and LED. While the former two share a long history in the advertisement and signage industry, the latter is a new player.
What is LED Signage?
LED is the acronym of Light-Emitting Diode. In simpler terms, a diode is a small light bulb. An LED display is composed of thousands of these small light bulbs that are:
- Lined up around an object or name to highlight it,
- Arranged in colors to form an image or message, or
- Manipulated to flicker on and off to show different images, colors, and messages.
Why the Increasing Popularity over Other Traditional Lighted Signages?
LED is eye-catching. One of LED technology’s unique features is its remarkable brightness, unparalleled by fluorescent and other lights. This brightness brings great contrast to the darkness of the night but is not “glaring” come daytime. So, when you’re using LED signage, you can be sure that people will see what you’re trying to advertise up close or at a distance, any time of the day.
It’s better, aesthetically-wise. One common problem business owners encounter when using lighting arrangements to light up their signage is that some of the bulbs seem to grow dimmer than the others in the long run. And fixups mean dishing out cash. With LED, this problem is minimized. Signages with uniform brightness give the impression that the business owners are efficient and serious in their branding.
LEDs have longer lifespans. Quality LED lights can last up to 100,000 hours. That’s approximately 3-6 years longer than the lifespan of fluorescent lights. Unlike the latter, the former doesn’t contain gases that may leak out over time causing dimness.
They’re easier to maintain. LED lights require less maintenance compared to other types of lights. You don’t have to replace them often given their longer lifespans. The lights themselves are not in glass tubes so they won’t easily break. This makes them ideal for outdoor application. There are also waterproof LED lights made specifically to withstand “very wet or humid weathers.”
Another advantage LED has over its counterparts is its smaller size. Because LED lights don’t come in tubes, one can have LED signage made with a thickness of just 1-inch. This feature contributes to lower shipping and installation costs.
LED lights are environment and human-friendly. LED signage usually uses up only 10 watts. It consumes approximately 80% less energy compared to neon and fluorescent-lighted signages.
Fluorescent bulbs also contain mercury. Though only a little amount, this metal and its vapor are health risks to both humans and the environment. By using LED, you’re not only keeping the people around you safe, you’re also lessening the environmental pollution.
LED Signages Are Flexible, Too!
Entrepreneurs see the importance of their brand stand out from the many similar products and services that are in the market. The versatility of LED signages can help accomplish that.
With LED, you have a wider range of options when it comes to animations, different kinds of movements for your message or tagline to hit your target market spot on, changing of colors, and even digital displays. In fact, the use of LED signage is fast becoming popular in many key cities including Singapore because of these features.
