Frequently Asked Questions
What does LED stand for?
It is short for Light Emitting Diode, a semiconductor device that emits visible light when an electric current passes through it. The light is not particularly bright, but in most LEDs it is monochromatic, occurring at a single wavelength.
Is LED lighting better?
LED lights are up to 80% more efficient than traditional lighting such as fluorescent and incandescent lights. 95% of the energy in LEDs is converted into light and only 5% is wasted as heat. This is compared to fluorescent lights which convert 95% of energy to heat and only 5% into light!
What are the advantages of LED Lighting?
They consume less electricity, are more reliable, scalable, sturdy and they generate very little heat.
What is a linear light?
The linear fluorescent light bulb or lamp is a type of gas-discharge lamp. Linear fluorescent bulbs come in a wide variety of lengths, diameters, wattages, and color temperatures. They are known for high energy efficiency, long life, and relatively low cost.
Benefits of LED Linear
Several of our linear lighting products form part of the M-Line range, summarise below for you.
Modern day manufacturing capability allows us to create light for any given situation. We are not limited to straight lines and can create bespoke shapes and curves, to deliver lighting which is visually stunning and delivers the perfect illumination to match your needs.
Eliminate the need for diffusers and reflectors as LED is directional, meaning we can focus light where it’s needed.
Depending on the time of day or night, or working situation, we have full control of the lighting colour capability allowing us to deliver white lighting through to colour variations to match your style, mood and working requirements.
LED is an effective form of lighting, whilst giving you ultimate flexibility to deliver light in the most effective way.
Recommended Lighting Levels
Lux levels are important and dictate the appropriate light levels for any given space. The CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) specify recommended lux levels for different areas in the commercial building sector.
