Supermarket chains have come on a bit since the days of a battered corner shop, or an old painted wooded sign outside. Todays modern technology enabled consumer expects to walk into a high tech visual environment to purchase goods and food.  Supermarket chains such as TESCO, ASDA (Walmart) and Sainsburys (UK) are leading the way by installing LED Fixtures and Fittings in new stores where once industrial style sodium lamps where used.

Led stage lighting can be diverse, creative and technologically astounding. The effects that can be created from computer controlled dmx units is amazing. No rock show should be carried out without led lighting

Many rock concerts and festivals take advantage of led lights. Places like the v festival or Glastonbury use. Led lighting to wonderful effect along with lasers and led large format screens. Many of these applications are experimental and eventually filter down to a consumer level. Watch this space as we will be uploading new led based projects to the projects section of our site.

Inspired by others Finnish artist Stefan lindfor has just opened his exhibition entitled ‘light world’s in new York.
His concept is simple whereby each piece has its own integral light source to power a set of led lights. The lights are then tailored to the piece to give lighting and bring soul to the art. We often use this technique here if you look at our led projects page you will see some great examples.
Bravo to Stefan for embracing led.

As we have previously talked about, led street lights are fast becoming a reality, more confirmation of this has become apparant as Philips have begun trials with St. Helens Council (Merseyside, UK) with the aim of converting from sodium based lamps to LED in the future.

More and more people and kitchen installers are opting to use LED Lights to create a crisp clear lighting effect, many of these undercounter and under cabinet lights are simple modular LED units which connect together and are powered by a transformer unit, the modules are usually connected in parallel to provide an equal output from the transformer.

As well as creating great effects using our led products such as:

We also supply and install new and replacement LED Light units, we have a large stock holding and can source or replace older equipment as well as offering new alternative replacements.

Take a look at our LED Projects page to see some of the example work we have carried out, we have great reviews on our LED work!.

Most aquariums (usually tropical tank setups) utilize fluorescent tubes such as T8 or T5 types in various length and usually in pairs. The tubes come in various wattage and colors such as natural daylight, moonlight blue and marine white. The main problem with fluorescent tubes is they rapidly lose their lighting output over time as they burn out, this means it can be expensive to keep a well lit aquarium.
LED lights have excellent power output, luminosity and lifespan… and in comparison are very cost effective.
Installation requires removal of the existing fluorescent tubes and starter circuitry,replacing it with led strip lighting connected to an external power supply.
Because of the naturevof using led lamps you create a different underwater effect as the light penetrates deeper into the water and is more focal.
We can install led lighting In any environment including led lighting for fish tanks.

When dealing with lighting you often have to take a creative approach to visual effects but at the same time do the job within budget, adhere to regulations and bring the project in on time. This can be a difficult trade off when trying to create something visually perfect. That’s where our vast knowledge and double figures years if experience kick in… we like to try new things and one of our clients requested side emitting fibre to run outdoors illuminating the pathways of the hotel. We came up with a twisted set of cables platted together with 3 light engines. The effect was as if light energy was flowing alongside the pathways. Fibre optic lighting truly is very versatile. This effect could not have been created with led lighting.
