LEDs do not rely on gas like neon or fluorescent lights. This basic difference increases their lifespan up to 10 years while other last for 4-5 years. Other signboards are gradually dimmed due to leakages and weather. LED lights are different because they never lose their brightness and resist weather for years.
These lights consume roughly around 15-20 watts power, which is much lower as compared to neon or fluorescent lights. Low power consumption means almost no impact on the environment and conforming to energy standards. All signboard companies in Dubai are encouraged to use LED technology because of environmental benefits. Another advantage of this perk is lower electricity bills.
LED lights are lightweight because they do not contain any gas filled tubes. They can easily be moved from one location to another. Portability makes them perfect for store relocation. The shipping charges and installation costs are also low because of the lower weight.
LEDs are so remarkably bright that they can be seen from miles away. Many motels outside the cities use LED signboards for better visibility. Over the years, LED technology has evolved to produce the brightest light spectrum. Fluorescent signboards fail to produce any visible impression during the day, but LEDs can produce a good visibility in the sunlight.
Almost No Maintenance:
LED signboards are very reliable. Many business owners think that due to a longer lifespan, LEDs are difficult to maintain, but it is the opposite. The signboards which need gases to function are actually the ones which need the most maintenance. LED signboards function just fine with minimal maintenance. Keeping it clean and shiny would probably be the only maintenance requirement business owners have to meet.
Gas operated fluorescent signboards and neon ones are still a good option, but when they stop working all of a sudden, a half-lit signboard makes a bad impression.
