LED TECHNOLOGY

Save up to 90% on your bills for lighting electricity compared with halogen or incandescent fittings.

 

LED lighting is a sensible and viable option for all situations, from domestic homes to commercial and industrial businesses, and saves the average home over £200/bulb over the lifetime of the bulb compared to using halogens, this is due to the low energy demand and the increased lifespan.

 

LED Technology is beneficial for hot and cold climes. Hot climates benefit from a reduced heat output: LED spot lights do not make use of filaments that are heated up during the working process to produce light. This means that heat dissipation in LED spot lights is comparatively far less. Far colder climates benefit from the working temperature range of as low as -50 degrees Celsius for LED, compared to -20 degrees celsius as a minimum working temperature for halogen fittings.

 

Lighting accounts for approximately 18% of household electricity bills, this is generally far higher for business in commercial or industrial production. A typical 35W halogen replacement LED will use as little as 4W for the same output of light, with the added benefit of instantaneous response (no ‘warming up’ of the bulb).

 

LED bulbs are soon to become a legal requirement for businesses in the UK, due to the energy saving benefits, and the comparative greater safety records compared to halogens, which are known to overheat due to the fact 80% of their energy output is through heat.

The new generation LEDs generate 3 to 5 times more light that previous LED technology and have energy savings of up to 90% when compared to conventional lighting technology. LEDs reach full brightness almost instantly unlike compact fluorescents that can take more than a minute to achieve their maximum output.

Existing lighting technologies are omni-directional and require external, inefficient reflectors to focus the light they emit. LED lighting is by its nature a directional light source, so that light is used efficiently and distributed to exactly where it is needed.  LEDs draw a hugely reduced electrical current which results in wiring and electrical fittings suffering less from deterioration and therefore lasting longer.

With the extended life span of LED lamps there are significant savings to be made with reduced maintenance and lamp replacement costs. Other benefits include a reduction in air conditioning costs due to the dramatically reduced heat generated by LED lamps. Reducing your carbon footprint will not only improve the environment but also have a positive impact on your customers.

Glamocell’s LED lights expect a service life of 50,000 hours, come with a three year warranty and can be installed with the minimum amount of disruption.  All of our products have undergone extensive testing and certification to ensure they meet stringent standards and have the longest life possible.

 

KEY ADVANTAGES OF USING LED TECHNOLOGY

Cost Reduction

Cost savings of up to 90% are the norm when comparing LED with conventional incandescent lighting and 50% when compared to CFLs, dramatically reducing energy costs.

Heat Reduction

LED operating temperatures are around 60 degrees compared to the 300-450 degrees centigrade operating temperatures of conventional lighting, reducing heat pollution to interior systems and reducing air-conditioning costs.

Low Carbon Emission

LED lighting reduces your carbon output by more than 80% and is environmentally friendly as they contain no mercury or polluting gases.  They are also 95% recyclable.

Safety

All LEDs are free from harmful UV and IR emissions

Quality of Light

The quality of the white light can be tailored to suit the human eye, eliminating eye strain, as proven by the study at the University of Twente, Netherlands.  This has shown that LED lighting actually improves the working environment, raising morale, increasing productivity and lowering absenteeism.

LEDs can also be matched to a specific colour index.  Unlike CLFs, LEDs produce instance full light with adjustable beam angles and are dimmable.

Life Cycle

LEDs expect a life cycle of 50,000 hours with minimal degradation.  This equates to 5.7 years if left on continuously or just over 17 years if switched on for 8 hours a day.  The life cycle will therefore decrease maintenance costs significantly. This is compared to only 2,000 running hours of a halogen.

 

Durability

LEDs are not subject to burn out and are shock resistant.

Quality

We only source the very best quality components for our products, with our LEDs being supplied by leading LED manufacturers.  All our products are easy to install, have a dimmable option and come with a three year warranty.  Glamocell products are CE Rated, RoHS and BSEN 60 698 compliant.
