The benefits of LED lighting – Why LED?

There are multiple reasons why choose LED lighting. See some of the benefits outlined:

Return on Investment

Our LED lights typically pay for themselves within 18 months. For example, our recent installation for West Dunbartonshire Leisure has a ROI period of 9 months

Reduced Carbon Emissions

LEDs convert up to 80% of energy into light. This both reduces electricity costs and dramatically reduces carbon emissions

Reduced Power Consumption

LEDs emit lower heat than fluorescent bulbs, which has benefits for areas that use air conditioning. by not having to work so hard, the air conditioning unit uses less power, and its lifetime is extended.

No Maintainence

The true cost of fluorescent lighting is the maintenance needed over its lifetime: lamp outlay, replacement labour and disposal costs. In comparison, LED is a fit-and-forget solution which has zero maintenance costs.

Long Life

The life of LED is between 4 and 40 times greater than traditional lighting products. Our most popular products have a lifespan of 50,000 hours.

Instant Light with No Flicker

Our LEDs produce 100% light instantly. They are also free of visible flicker, which prevents the discomfort associated with traditional lighting.

Reduced Heat and UV

LEDs emit minimal Ultra Violet (UV). They also emit less heat than traditional lights, which means they are cool to touch and perfect for heat sensitive applications.

Environmentally Friendly

The mercury contained in just one fluorescent lamp is enough to contaminate 30,000 litres of water beyond the safe drinking limit level. LEDs do not contain mercury, which makes them safer to use and safer to dispose of.

Improved Staff Productivity

LEDs create a pleasant, bright environment that is conducive to improved staff morale and increased productivity


LEDs do not contain a filiament that can be damaged by shock and vibration, which makes them one of the most stable light sources available.
