Frequently Asked Questions

What are LEDs?

LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes. LEDs are “directional” light sources, which means they emit light in a specific direction, unlike incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs, which emit light and heat in all directions. For this reason, LED lighting is able to use light and energy more efficiently in many applications.

What are the general benefits to LED lighting
  • Ecologically-Friendly
  • Economically-Friendly
  • Long-Lasting
  • High Efficacy
  • Zero UV Emissions
  • Easy Installation
  • Instant Lighting
  • Top-Notch Quality Available
  • Precise Light Dispersion
What is lumens and why do we need to know about it?

This is a basic unit used to measure the brightness of a fixture. Lumens is related to the word luminous which means “bright” or radiant.” When selecting LED lights make sure to purchase based on lumens to be certain you’re getting the amount of light, or level of brightness, you want.

What colour temperatures are best for residential, commercial, and industrial areas?

The following colour temperatures are suggested for fixtures to be placed in the three different sectors. This does not mean that it is limited to these temperatures, but the space will look best with the following recommendation:

Residential: 2800 – 3000 K

Commercial: 3000 – 5000 K

Industrial: 4000 or 5000 K

What are the general cost savings for LED lighting?

Generally, with LEDS you can save over 85% in energy consumption. LEDs can save costs in installation, maintenance, and almost zero replacement.

What IP ratings are needed for LED fixtures used in offices, parking lots, stadiums, stores, and more?

Offices: IP40 Stores: IP40 Streets: IP65 / IP66 / IP67 Parking Lots: IP65 Stadiums: IP65 / IP66

What makes LEDs better than other light sources?

LEDs have no gases, filaments and no moving parts to fatigue. They provide light through a one-step process that takes place within the diode. There is no glass to break or screwed contacts to loosen.

How many watts?

Watts are not the deciding factor when it comes to picking a LED fixture. We are not looking for wattage consumption when we measure the actual brightness for the fixtures bulbs.

Is there a uniform way of comparing watts to lumens?

Unfortunately, there is not a specific way to distinguish between watts and lumens. It differs from fixture to fixture, from bulb to bulb. The only way to help make the decision would be quality; as would be the same for any product.

Why should I be worried about the life span of LEDs?

First and foremost, we are pushing for a change because this is in the best interest of our planet; the less recycling of any sort, the less foot prints we make. Second of all, your initial purchasing investment is paid off completely after a few short years,this means that you are in a higher saving bracket after that. The longer your products last, the better it’ll be for the planet and more bang for your buck.

With respect to LEDs, what difference does the quality make?

Long life span, high lumens per watt, ease of installation, good CRI (Color Rendering Index), high CCT (Correlated Color Temperature) over its promised life span, durability and much more.

Why LEDs?

LEDs are the most advanced type of lighting that can be offered commercially at the moment. It offers better light than gas vaporized emitting types such as MH or CFL. it provides moreefficiency than all other types of lighting andthey offer less heat over all other models. Finally, they last much longer and remain 100% recyclable.
