Safer Lighting Technology

Incandescent bulb releases plenty of heat that results in high temperature that can burn your fingers. The bulb can only be built with thin glass for the light to penetrate through and to also withstand such high temperatures, however they are extremely fragile. Issues of exploding or bursting may occur when the air is very cold inside the bulb, the heat comes from the metal filament can cause an adverse reaction on the air inside the bulb causing it to expand too rapidly and thus bursting the glass of the bulb causing serious safety hazards.

Compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs) emit UV and infrared radiation and also create high temperature, thus they are also made with glass, furthermore, once the glass cracks or breaks it releases mercury vapour and other gasses that can cause contamination and can damage the nervous system, brain, liver and kidneys. Hence CFLs require special handling and disposal.

LEDs generate much less heat than traditional lighting sources, therefore it would not affect the temperature of the surroundings. It does not contain lead, mercury, or any hazardous chemical elements or gases, therefore LEDs do not pose any threat to the safety of human and the welfare of the environment. Due to less heat generated, it can be housed with rigid polycarbonate plastics instead of glass. The light emitted by the LEDs do not contain UV or infrared radiation. LEDs are environmentally friendly and recyclable, hence they do not pose any harm to the landfill.

Shock & Vibration Resistant

LEDs are solid state technology. The LED semiconductor chips are embedded in proxy resin enclosure and are encapsulated with organic phosphors and polycarbonate which make the LEDs much more durable internally and externally than traditional glass bulbs, hence are difficult to damage with external shock. LEDs are perfect for any application that is affected by motion or mechanical vibration.

Lower Carbon Emissions

Lighting accounts for approximately 20% of the average home’s electricity use, while up to 80% in commercial applications, hence it has a huge impact on the carbon footprint. LEDs offer an excellent opportunity to significantly reduce carbon emissions and help the environment.
