High powered LED down-lights make a better option than using traditional old fashioned halogen lamps when you want to make some place more distinctive than the rest.
There are many advantages of using LED lights, including considerable saving of power and hence money, extraordinary long life, appearance and their environment friendly nature.
Manufacturing of LEDs involves use of different semiconducting materials like gallium arsenide, silicone, aluminum gallium arsenide, diamond and zinc selenide etc. They are available in a very large variety of colors like red, orange, yellow, infrared, green, blue, ultraviolet, violet, purple, pink and white. They emit the desired color without using any color filters.
Unlike the normal life often to fifteen thousand hours of a standard incandescent lamp, the life of LED lights varies from 25,000 to 100,000 hours. These lights don’t emit as much heat as traditional ones and are thus more energy efficient.
Apart from being energy efficient, LED down-lights are available in different shapes and colors to suit the requirements of any designer. As these lights don’t contain any mercury, like incandescent lamps, they are more environment friendly due reduced CO2 emissions.
The power consumption of led panels lights is significantly less than the traditional lights by almost fifty percent and they last much longer. Therefore, their maintenance is very negligible. Since the heat released by LED light is very low, there is no fear of their getting overheated to the extent of causing fire. Further they don’t emit any radiation, making them additionally safer.
Designers prefer using LED lights as they are designed for different operating voltages from 85-260 VAC. These are available in varying intensities of different sizes and bend angles of 30, 45 and 60 degrees.
All the above mentioned technical features and their availability in beautiful and varying shapes make them a trendy choice for decorating and illuminating any place.
Since their operating temperature is less than 60 degrees Celsius, such down-lights are very safe, causing no fears of any fire. Their energy consumption is low and they don’t cause any infrared or ultraviolet emissions, making them environmentally safe. These can be installed easily and need no professional help. Moreover, they don’t cause any flickering sounds like traditional bulbs.
LED lights are capable of releasing a strong and accurate beam of light, making them especially useful for illumination of counters, shop windows, hallways, dining and conference rooms and supermarkets too These are often used for commercial lighting of elevators and indoors.
