LED String Lights and their benefits
Christmas Direct LEDs are a high quality, commercial grade product. The system of Diodes means that there are no bulbs to replace or become damaged. They are also incredibly robust and essentially; extremely inexpensive to run. Remember that not all LEDs are equal – Christmas Direct LEDs all have a minimum arc of light of 120 degrees, whilst some lesser brands may have as little as 60 degrees.
Light emitting diodes, commonly known as LEDs are small lights illuminated by the movement of electrons within a semi-conductor material. You may think LEDs are new technology however this isn’t the case, you will be used to seeing them everyday. Digital clocks, remote controls, car headlights and even traffic lights use LEDs.
LED lights are very similar to traditional fairy lights except that they do not have a filament inside the bulb that can burn out and make the set redundant. A specific benefit of LED lights is their hard-wearing durability. With no fragile filament and no glass parts, being both resistant to temperature and impact they are the smart choice for all manner of lighting displays. Gone are the days of buying spare Christmas light bulbs each year.
Originally only produced in red, their popularity grew when other colours were introduced and unlike filament bulbs which are white with a coloured glass cap LEDs are actually coloured semi conductors so the light is a brighter truer colour.
Perhaps the main advantages of LED lights is that they are exceptionally energy efficient. In regular incandescent bulbs the light is produced by the heating of the light filament which is completely wasted energy. LED lights produce no heat, they are cool to the touch and are very eco friendly. There is no UV, lead or mercury in LEDs so they are perfect for eco projects and green business schemes.
We would estimate our LEDs should last up to 100,000 hours and use 90% less energy than a traditional filament set of Christmas lights would. This is of huge benefit to both commercial clients and domestic customers. In the current economic environment money saving is key and LED string lights prove essential in producing cost effective lighting displays.
Today you can find LED Christmas lights in all colours, shapes and sizes. They can be purchased in static ‘steady on’ or multifunction with effects such as twinkling, chasing and fading.
