Having read a very interesting article recently about how NASA is implementing LED Light technology in the International Space Station to cue the astronauts bodies into daylight routines it just goes to show the diverse nature of led lighting and again its choice over other lighting was its massive bulb lifespan.

LED Lighting is no longer the ultra expensive lighting option for architects and specifiers who spec out the materials to use in the shops and shopping centres we visit every day. In fact LED Lighting is fast becoming the preferred choice with long term cost savings and lower environmental and CO2 impact.

Throughout the 2012 Olympics in London, England an array of visual effects and lighting is being used.

Much of the lighting is utilising low power energy efficient LED Lighting, this lighting allows the organisers to produce magnificent highlight and mood lighting throughout the games.

New York – Times Square is one of the maternal homes of bright lights and entertainment, it wont come as any surprise to see the vast amount of standard lighting has now been converted to high efficiency, low energy LED Lamps and LED Lights.

Some examples of excellent uses of external LED Lighting are shown below, sinatra himself would have been proud!.

When selling vehicles it is apparant that more and more car showrooms are using LED Lighting to their advantage, from the illumination of BMW signage using LED Block modules in showrooms in London to the neon led tubes used at mercedes in manchester. LED Lights produce a bright low cost eco friendly solution to the traditional non design friendly incandescent bulb. LED’s can be bunched together in rope like material and wound around signage to produce startling effects.

Across the UK and the US there are thousands of shopping centres and shopping malls, each containing hundreds of large chain retailers and smaller independants all trying to grab your attention.

The use of external signage and lighting has always been the best way to attract potential customers to visit your store. For a long time external signage has been dominated by the neon tube and its flourescent cousin, these two products have seen a vast amount of uses from bars and cafes to commercial and industrial signage both inside and outside buildings.

Everyone wants and dreams of having their own swimming pool in their home, most of us simply don’t have a home big enough or the cash available, but for those that do their is an abundance of lighting solutions available that can maximise the ambiance of that dream pool.

Have you ever looked around you whilst sat in a restaurant having a meal, chances are you havent noticed the abundance of LED Lamp based solutions that have been used around the restaurant.

We recently installed new LED Strip lighting at a well known ‘lovin it’ chain, the strip lighting was used around the counter close to the kick boards, weve come up with a list of other places you can check yourselves, you will probably be surprised how popular led lighting is…

Prestigious boat builders Jeanneau / Beneteau have started using LED Down lights on the interior of their 34ft yacht the 33i sun odyssey, the 2012 model which is now in a brown trim rather than blue boasts the new style lighting which allows for setting the mood as the individual LED Lights can be switched on or off independantly or as part of a group.
