What is LED Box Lighting?

An LED light box provides backlit illumination for graphics and printed messages to make your display pop. LED box lighting technology is used in displays across a variety of business applications—retail, trade shows, transportation, restaurants, museums, entertainment (movie theaters, sports venues), and more. Known for being energy efficient and eco-friendly, there are many benefits to using LED lighting.

 9 Benefits of LED Box Lighting

1. Long Life 

LED lights have an exceptional life expectancy—up to 50,000 hours. For comparison, fluorescent lighting lasts about 15,000 hours. This saves time and money by not having to replace bulbs as frequently.   

 2. Energy Efficient

Compared to conventional lighting, LEDs have an estimated energy efficiency of 80 to 90%. That means they only emit 10 to 20% of energy as heat. In comparison, incandescent bulbs release 90% of their energy as heat and compact fluorescent bulbs release about 80%. 

3. Equal Light Disbursement

LEDs deliver light in a more focused manner without the use of an external reflector than conventional lighting. The directional nature of the light allows its application to be used in multiple industries. LEDs are commonly used in outdoor spaces (parking lots, garages, gardens), refrigerated cases, and as modular and task lighting.

4. Temperature Extremes

Traditional lighting may not operate as well in cold conditions. LEDs can function in cold temperatures outdoors and refrigerated spaces indoors. 

 5. No UV emissions

LED lighting gives off little to no ultraviolet (UV) emissions, making the lighting a good choice when illuminating objects that are sensitive to heat and UV rays, such as artwork, paper, historical texts, etc.  

6. Toxin-free

Beyond being energy efficient, LED bulbs are free of toxic materials and can be recycled. On the other hand, fluorescent bulbs contain mercury and other toxins, creating a problem if broken, and are not recyclable. 

7. Low Voltage

LEDs can function with a low-voltage power supply. Some LED lighting installations can also be combined with solar power, increasing its cost efficiency. 

8. Dimmable

LED box lighting systems are flexible and customizable. You can dim the lighting, change colors, and even add effects like strobe and flashing lights. 

 9. Sturdy

LED bulbs are made with epoxy lenses, making them much more breakage-resistant than glass bulbs.
