All of our Neon Direct Signs are made from premium quality, flame retardant PVC’s which prevent the product from generating surface heat and becoming a safety risk. All of our LED Signs also come mounted onto an acrylic background for easy installation.
Our LED Signs are environmentally friendly and power using a 12V transformer therefore our product functions at a safer voltage than that for traditional glass neon. No heat will be generated or emitted from the surface of the sign due to the low voltage used to power the product.
There are many benefits of using LED Neon instead of traditional glass neon.
First things first, LED Neon Signs offer much less of a safety risk due to its lower voltage to operate, the sign does not generate heat and the absence of glass from LED Signs makes it suitable for any environment as it is much less likely to break.
LEDs have an extremely long lifespan with approximately a 30,000 – 70,000 hour function life, however could last much longer than that. Traditional glass neon signs have a life span of approximately 10,000 hours with the neon within the glass needing to be replaced after a certain time.
For the majority of LED Neon Signs, a specialist installation team will not be required as they are lightweight and built for easy installation in mind. The fragile nature of traditional glass neon means they must be handled with care and installed by a specialist team.
LED Neon Signs are generally significantly cheaper to purchase without compromising on visual effect and generally cheaper to maintain and repair. Traditional glass neon usually has a much higher upfront cost and the fragile nature of the materials used means you might be spending more on repairs.
