What is LED neon flex?

LED Neon Flex is up to 70% more efficient than traditional neon lighting. It has a higher luminous efficiency rating, meaning that LED Neon Flex requires a lower voltage to burn brighter than traditional neon. This more modern form of lighting is more durable and longer lasting and doesn’t use the chemicals involved in neon lighting which, alongside the lack of glass, makes it a much safer alternative.

LED Neon Flex is an extremely flexible and durable form of lighting, making it ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. LED Neon Flex is easy and straightforward to install and, unlike neon lighting, there is no fragile glass to be wary of, as well as a reduced risk of electric shocks. This type of lighting is a modern way to create a neon sign without the expense or safety risks of traditional neon signs.

Why use green LED Neon Flex?

Green LED Neon Flex is often used to mimic the retro, glass neon look associated when we think of neon lighting. Green LED Neon Flex is well suited to applications such as:

  • Signage
  • Lobbies
  • Hotels
  • Storefronts

Our eyes are highly sensitive to green which makes it ideal for use at night, for example on a sign to be seen from a roadside or similar. The colour green is also associated with safety. It helps to draw people in, making them feel safe and comfortable.

Of course, the colour green is also associated with Christmas and so green LED Neon Flex is often used by customers for both Christmas and St Patrick’s Day events.
