LEDs provide superior lighting from every angle.

LEDs are often specified for general lighting applications based on energy and maintenance savings alone. Although these benefits are the easiest to quantify, LEDs also offer a number of other advantages compared to traditional lamp sources:

Improved lighting quality:

  • Highly directional: easy to focus light output, resulting in improved light efficiency and reduced unwanted light trespass
  • Even light distribution: Improved uniformity of light levels—fewer hot spots and dark areas
  • Instant-on: no waiting for the lamp to warm up, even when the lamp is cycled off and immediately back on
  • Operate efficiently at all temperatures

Highly durable:

  • Capable of withstanding physical shocks that would shatter conventional lamps
  • Capable of rapid switching or dimming without shortened life

Environmentally friendly:

  • Reduced waste: long life LEDs can last for decades, if properly managed
  • Mercury-free
  • Lead-free
  • Reduced energy use
  • Silent operation—no hum

Enhanced safety:

  • No ultraviolet (UV) or infrared (IR) radiation
  • Low-voltage power supplies (i.e., drivers) provide reduced risk of electrical shock
