Lighting


filament light bulbs and 10,000 hours for fluorescents, this initial cost is quickly absorbed and you will see an incredible return on your investment in much lower energy bills”.


As well as being cost effective and kinder to the planet, LED lighting is beneficial in many other ways. Unlike fluorescent tube lighting, common in many offices, LEDs do not flicker; instead they emit a constant source of light that won’t cause painful eye strain or headaches. LEDs also have an excellent colour quality, the shade of which closely matches natural light and is consistent over time.


Far from being restrictive, LEDs are available in a wide range of styles with many designed for specific uses that truly compliment both home and business. As they do not get hot, LED lighting can be employed in workplaces, gyms, theatres and at concert venues without causing discomfort.


Due to their consistent light output, LEDs are also ideal for exhibitions as they are able to illuminate displays


without emitting harmful UV rays. Dimmer switches and and colour temperature control can be adjusted to suit numerous atmospheres, making LEDs the perfect choice for restaurants, hotels, spas, offices and home environments.


“The range of choice available to organisations is far greater now than it was when LEDs were first introduced,” said Clyde, “thanks to advances in design we are now able to match the particular requirements of each of our clients. Some of our most popular solutions include down lights as well as flood, recess, floor and shelf lighting. We also supply fridge and freezer lighting that enhances the look of the food on display in shops.”


LEDs measure from 3 to 8mm long and can be used singularly or as part of a group. The small size and low profile of LEDs allow them to be used in spaces that are too small for other lights meaning no compromises on design have to be made to disguise unsightly bulky


bulbs. LEDs can complement the look and feel of any setting and are often used as part of interior features and art installations.


When considering lighting solutions, Clyde advises: “LED lighting should provide a stable light output throughout the lifespan. The light should be of good colour with a brightness that equals conventional light sources. LEDs should light up immediately when turned on; they should not flicker when on a dimmer setting and should not consume energy when turned off. Poorly designed LEDs will not be as long lasting or efficient so when sourcing lighting solutions, it’s important to do your research and always buy from a reputable provider.” LEDtec offers a free survey to calculate your lighting needs and is happy to give any technical advice.
