The Safety Benefits of LED
Posted by Birddog Lighting on Nov 21st 2013
Apart from the obvious savings in energy, LED lights also benefit from the fact that they are generally safer to use and install in different environments. While the bulbs are generally quite bright, certain variants of LED technology are brighter than others. This helps enhance overall safety for users. LED bulbs do not feature any of the hazardous materials that are used to create conventional bulbs. Even in the case of irreparable damage, there is no risk of dangerous elements being released into the environment and affecting people close by. LED Rope Lights: this variant is probably the most popular LED lighting technology. The plastic cover comes in different thickness levels, and since most LED rope lights are available in water resistant variants, users can install lights in various environments. It is also excellent for places where conventional lights run the risk of being damaged such as a garage, workshop, driveway, etc. LED Strip Lights: This variant provides versatile lighting on virtually any household surface. Since the bulbs can be powered with batteries, it is possible to do away with electrical connections and wiring. This is also available in waterproof variants, which makes it ideal for wet or extreme conditions where safety is a concern.
