LED Indoor Lighting
Since the beginning of the 21st Century LED lighting has had an increasing part to play in our lives - a part that was somewhat magnified when incandescent GLS bulbs and other filament lamps above a certain wattage were phased out. Within the business confines of a either a business premises or home the scope of LED is massive, so let’s quickly flick through some of the LED applications commonly found under our roofs.
LED Emergency Lighting
You might find LEDs present in emergency lighting, which is designed to continue functioning even after the power is cut. Normally an emergency light will last for three hours independently, running off of a battery back-up.
LED is beginning to find its place in many commercial environments, too. It makes a good choice of ceiling panel in offices, thanks to an even spread of light and an inherent lack of the flickering that has traditionally been a problem with fluorescent lights in the workplace.
Spot, track, and downlights
LED spotlights are a fantastic choice of incandescent replacement in many a scenario. Whether you’re installing a 3-light ceiling plate, a versatile track light, or just straight downlights - sometimes adjustable - you’ll benefit from a light that’s healthier and more eco-friendly than the energy-saving alternatives and far cheaper to run than halogen. At Lyco we try to arm you with enough salient pointers to help you make an informed decision.
There are plenty of potential uses for LED lights in the bathroom, too, whether it’s a water resistant ceiling or wall light with suitably high IP rating, or perhaps a decorational LED flexi-strip to create ambience. Many opportunities exist for creative LED lighting in the bathroom!
LED lights can be fitted inside a cabinet or outside - often underneath either in strips or convenient puck lights. A discreet installation is often the name of the game here, so you can keep the lights away from your eye line and either concentrate on the task at hand or enjoy a cabinet display uninhibited.
Ceiling and wall lights
An extensive choice of ceiling and wall light make use of LED technology. In some instances the installation and light source are one and the same thing, which is made possible by the fantastic lifespan of LED. Other times you’ll be able to replace the lamp with another LED, at some distant point down the line. In everyday luminaires you’ll enjoy fuss-free lighting without any imminent risk of being plunged into darkness.
Desk lamps, picture lights
In some fittings the inherent lack of heat thrown out by LED is a boon! In a picture light, for instance, you wouldn’t ordinarily want to throw too much heat onto your artwork. A lack of UV output in LEDs is also useful in instances where you may want to illuminate sensitive fabrics, or surfaces. Then there’s the desk - well during the winter you may appreciate a bit of warmth, but that’s really the function of radiators. A cool-running LED desklamp provides you with the illumination you need, and no more.
When you’re looking to light an interior, or perhaps replace existing lights with more environmentally friendly and cheaper-running alternatives, LED indoor lighting shows the way!
