In the advertising industry, neon signs are lighted electric signs generally illuminated by long term inert gas-discharge lamps containing rarefied, green gas or other bright gases. They’re the most popular usage for neon lights, which was revealed in a modern form by Georges Claude in the Paris Motor Show just a few years ago. But even though they’re so immensely popular, some people still have no idea about them! This article aims to clear that up!
What You Should Have Asked Your Teachers About Neon Signs
Neon signage has a huge variety of benefits, the first of which being cost efficiency, as you’ll often find it considerably less expensive to have neon lighting installed than to purchase, and install, commercial signboards made from traditional, non-bullet-proof, lead-acid glass and traditional, non-fluorinated plastic. For signage, especially outdoor signage, low-voltage led displays offer huge advantages in terms of longevity, particularly when exposed to harsh outdoor conditions. LED displays also produce much less heat than their incandescent counterparts, and therefore pose no harm to the environment, unlike incandescent signage, for example. Another major plus is that you don’t need to maintain your LED display – they simply glow in the dark!
In the past decade or so, however, signs have seen a recent resurgence in popularity, mostly because of the massive advantages they offer over traditional glass tubes and signboards. First of all, because they don’t require any electricity to power them, they can save thousands of dollars per year in electricity bills, as well as cut down on your carbon footprint, since they use virtually no gas lighting at all. Second of all, since they use fluorescent or hot-glow technology, they contribute very little to global warming. Finally, since they use glass tubes filled with a gas (usually argon), these kinds of signage display products never go out of style, which means that you’ll always have a fresh new look to offer visitors to your business premises. With so many advantages, it’s no wonder that more businesses are opting for these popular alternatives to classic glass tubes and signboards!
