Solid-state design renders LEDs impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes.
With an average life span of 50,000-plus hours (11 years / 12 hours per day), LED lamps operate more than 20 times longer than the equivalent incandescent lamp.
LEDs also offer advantages over traditional lighting sources that are not always readily apparent. Unlike neon, incandescent or fluorescent light sources, LEDs are compact devices that have no filaments to break, no moving parts and no glass components of any kind.
In addition to being virtually unbreakable, LEDs are low-voltage devices that generate very little heat, contain no mercury and emit a specific wavelength of light that can match the same color of the sign face material.
LED lamps produce almost no heat and require 65% - 75% less operating power than equivalent incandescent, making them easy on the environment as well as easy on the bottom line.
