Top Five Advantages of LED Lighting

Top Five Advantages of LED Lighting Efficiency - We’ve all heard about the energy efficiency of LED lights, but what’s the real story? Compared with fluorescent and metal halide, well designed LED lights will typically use between half and one quarter of the power to achieve the same light output. Compared to halogen or tungsten, the savings are even greater. Whilst it’s true that light emitting diodes are fantastically efficient light sources, the light fixtures need to be properly designed to maximise this efficiency without damaging the LED itself and degrading its light output over time. Lifetime - LED Fixtures last many times longer than their traditional counterparts, removing the cost, downtime and inconvenience of having to hire access equipment and purchase of new lamps. The long lifetime of LED products really comes into its own when considering difficult to access areas, such as the roofs of factories, warehouses and hangars, and for decorative architectural

Colour Rendering – Crucial but often misunderstood

Colour Rendering - Explained Colour rendition is a crucial but often misunderstood aspect of any lighting installation. There are a few methods of measuring colour rendering, including TM-30, the Colour Quality Scale (CQS) and others, but this article will focus on the Colour Rendering Index (CRI) as this venerable system is still by far the most commonly used. What is colour rendering? Put simply, colour rendering is a measure of how accurate the colour of objects illuminated appears to be, when compared to a reference source. Things illuminated with a high CRI light source can be expected to look very similar to how they would in daylight, for example. What colour rendering doesn’t do is tell you anything about the colour of a light source; that’s instead determined by the colour temperature (CCT). It also doesn’t tell you the range of colours that can be seen under the light source- something known as the gamut area. How does CRI work? CRI is based on a set
