The Pros & Cons Of Lighting Up Your Signage At Night

One of the best and most effective ways to improve your signage is through the use of lighting. Even simple light fixes can keep your business glowing 24/7. This is important for any organisation, no matter the size or how well established you are.

Illuminate your outdoor signage with options like light boxes, dramatic LED signs or mounted lighting fixtures to improve readability at night. Commercial sign lighting is essential to maintain your business’s visibility throughout the entire day.

With forms of lighting forever changing, it is important to understand the different types that are available and how they can help illuminate your signs.

LED illumination is very popular now as it’s very striking and also extremely cost effective - fluorescent lights last up to 10,000 hours, whereas LEDs can last up to a massive 60,000 hours! This can provide substantial savings as a result of fewer replacements needing to be purchased.

LED lighting can be used in a number of different ways,

  • Fret cut fascia’s – This can provide back lighting to illuminate text & logos
  • Built up letters – LED lighting can be installed behind the built up letter to illuminate back onto the sign tray to give an impressive halo effect
  • Flex face – LED light sheets are installed behind a tensioned banner to illuminate the while fascia creating a massive presence down the high street
  • Para beams – For downward lighting on your fascia, which will keep your company name visible around the clock

However, as the cost of electricity continues to rise, it can still be costly, but it’s a price worth paying if you want your business to stand out against the rest of the competition.
