Another great advantage of LED lighting is operating with very little heat, great to use around all the family, pets and wildlife all make good sense. Often overlooked is the fact LED’s do not emit UV light ever annoying insects are not attracted to light fittings .
LED’s are available in white, warm white, blue green, cyan, amber and red to cover most lighting requirements, lenses are also waterproof for use in many applications. LED’s can also be wired to 12/ 24 volt Battery systems, even Solar panels or mains power through transformers.
Just to summarise, there are so many ways LED’s can be used in a wide range of situations and the energy efficiency provides long term savings to reward your investment. There are also range of positive sealing jointing systems that provide positive and waterproof long term connections, remote controls and touch pad controls provide a complete & efficient lighting solution.
