Mannequin showcases with LED lighting

5 advantages of a showcase with LED lighting.

LED lighting is a lighting system that is based on a semiconductor diode that emits light. When you have a showcase with LED lighting you get many benefits that help protect your products and save energy.

LED lighting advances every day more because of the advantages it brings, so it is currently possible to introduce it in more than 95% of lighting devices of all types: lighting in buildings, traffic lights, cars, telephones and much more. The LED lights are small in size and generate light with great power. It also offers the possibility of changing the color of light, an advantage that traditional lighting systems do not offer. But what are the most important advantages that a showcase with LED lighting offer for your business?

Advantages of showcases with LED lighting

1. Savings on energy bills. LED bulbs consume 90% less energy than traditional bulbs, which means a cut in energy expenditure.

2. It lasts much longer. An LED lamp has a much longer life than other devices. Generally, an LED light lasts about 45,000 hours, while a standard one does not usually exceed two thousand. This translated, assumes that an LED device offers light for about five years if it is permanently on, while the others offer a maximum of 83 days.

3. Cleaner energy. Traditional light bulbs contain elements such as tungsten or mercury, which are highly toxic. However, LED bulbs are recyclable and do not contain these types of substances.

4. They are more secure. While traditional lighting as well as light provides heat, the LEDs do not give off heat, which gives a double advantage: they do not waste energy and allow their use in small places without any danger.

5. Easy and cheap maintenance. Having such a long life, LED lights do not require frequent maintenance or replacement.

Pedestal Glass Vitrines for cruise-lines

If you’re lucky enough to be cruising the Caribbean seas  in the last 4 months or so, maybe you’ve also noticed our new collection of glass vitrines made especially for the cruise-line industry?  These elegant vitrines were specifically designed to show off the treasures of the sea.  In fact, most of the gold, silver and jewelry displayed was almost all discovered on the bottom of the Caribbean sea.  Who knows maybe it once belonged to Captain Hook? :-)
