Whether it’s for the home, for retail, or for the office, LED Lighting can provide a wealth of good things. Time improvements (through less replacements) money saving (through less voltage and less power being required) and of course being good for the environment (with average savings compared to traditional CFL bulbs at 80%) LED technology, whether it’s LED Strip Lights, LED Rope Lights or even LED Bulbs is coming on leaps and bounds and the applications of such are absolutely unending. We’ve compiled a shortlist of the benefits of LED Lighting, and why now is the perfect time to switch.
H&S, or health and safety, is unbelievably important within the workplace. More often than not brought up by the inspectorate and also within reviews within the workplace, it can be very difficult to avoid and identify hazards in areas which are under lit, or have poor light quality. Lots of workplaces don’t have windows (for instance, electrical component manufacturers – windows are a dust hazard) so getting the lighting right is of the essence.
Furthermore, the flicker of fluorescent light can cause your staff headaches, and dreary yellow light can often lead to visual fatigue.
LED Lighting can also allow you to free up your maintenance team. Ask any maintenance professional what their most hated job is, and you’ll probably be surprised to find that replacing light fixtures is up there.

Furthermore, the lighting will degrade far faster than normal.
