LEDs are a wonderful, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly solution to illuminated signs and accent lighting. More and more people are joining the energy saving revolution. Historically signage was illuminated using neon or fluorescent lighting which is proven not to be as energy efficient or environmentally friendly.
LED products are efficient, safe, low voltage, long lasting and arguably better at using energy than other lighting technologies. LED technology converts energy straight to light, resulting in running cost savings over standard energy bills. They also last up to 10 times longer than traditional lighting for signage.
The most successful LED companies have adopted a number of environmentally friendly practices and are continually aiming to extend and enhance these practices throughout their business. These companies are committed to ensuring that their products and business activities take into consideration the impact on the environment.

LED colors, life expectancy, and voltage requirements ………..
LEDs are available in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and White. Some manufactures offer custom applications where custom colors can be achieved. Red, Yellow, Orange LEDs have a typical life of up to 100,000 hours and Blue, Green and White LEDs have typical life of up to 50,000 hours. Most LED systems operate at low voltage. The power supply that controls the LEDs takes standard line voltage and converts it to low voltage, typically 12 to 24 volts. The low voltage application reduces safety and fire hazards.
