Your Essential Guide To LED Panel Lights

With lighting representing almost 20% of global electricity consumption (according to the
International Energy Agency), it is important that all businesses do their part to ensure that energy efficiency is high on the agenda.

LED panels are modernising the way we light up our offices, making our lighting more energy efficient, long lasting and environmentally friendly. So here is a question for you, what actually are LED lights and how do they work?

LED Lighting – The Essential Info

LED lights illuminate digital clocks, traffic lights, mobile phones and important landmarks. Alongside this, they are also becoming increasingly popular to light up homes and places of work, so it’s quite important that we know what they actually are.

LEDs (light emitting diodes) are semiconductor diodes, which glow when a voltage is applied. LED lights differ from the traditional incandescent bulb in the way in which they produce light in that they do not use a tungsten filament, which can ultimately burn out.

LED Lighting – The Benefits

LEDs have numerous benefits compared to other light sources. They use 90% less energy than an incandescent bulb so their efficiency levels are much higher.

LED panels product a bright and controllable light, which is instant and there is no warm-up time, like with traditional bulbs. The heat output is low and there are no UV rays.

LED lights are shock and vibration resistant with a long lifespan up to 50,000 hours, which is up to 50 times longer than the incandescent bulb. Thus, reducing the maintenance costs associated with changing bulbs and replacing lights.

These benefits make LED lighting panels a very versatile option for lighting up the inside and outside of your business. They are ideal for office, medical waiting areas, schools, hospitals and are a solid form of lighting, which outperforms other lighting technologies in terms of their durability and performance.
