As we head into winter – with its colder, darker days – you might be considering how to make your workplace brighter yet more energy-efficient.
One thing that frequently gets overlooked during this process is the signage which is used both inside and outside a premises.
External signage is often only replaced when it becomes less effective during the winter months; the imperfections in the sign material become obvious, and the failing bulbs make it harder to spot your business.
However, get ahead of the game now, and you can ensure your business is kept well-lit – both internally and externally – right from the first day of winter!
Where can you use LED-illuminated signs?
LED lights can be used for both internal and external signage.
They perform well in the cold and are durable, meaning they’re an excellent choice for external signage: illuminated shop signs, LED brand names, and lit-up graphics…the possibilities are endless.
Illuminated signs are also the perfect way to add a bit of life to the inside of your building. Use internal LED signs to add the “wow” factor and a great first impression by lighting up your reception or waiting area.
Bring those dull rooms to life, brighten up dark spots, and help people navigate around your business (think illuminated fire exit signs!) in a cost-effective, on-brand way.
Long-life illuminated signage – guaranteed
In the long term, choosing LEDs means your illuminated signs will last much longer: LED bulbs last up to ten times longer than traditional ones. This means they’re super cost-effective: you’ll reduce your maintenance costs as you won’t need to replace the bulbs – or the whole sign – as often. In fact, all of our lighting modules have a ten-year guarantee.
How much do you save by switching to LED signage?
Old, deteriorating signs are often extremely inefficient. Upgrading your old sign will make your business easier to find and improve that first impression, and you could use up to 75%* less energy every time you turn the sign on. And, when you have a sign illuminated for most of the day during the winter months, that’s a considerable amount of money you could save!
With LED signage, your brand awareness and reputation are the only things going up – and not your energy bills!
Are LED-lit signs safer?
LED-lit signs project virtually no infrared heat in their beam and require much less voltage than traditional light bulbs, reducing the risk of fire and overheating. You’ll also lessen the risk of electric shocks and burns (there’s always someone who’ll touch one to see if it’s hot!).
Interior signs will likely be switched on 365 days of the year, not just during winter. So, internal illuminated lighting that isn’t generating heat will also reduce your air conditioning bills come summer – even more money saved!
A recyclable, sustainable choice
Lower energy bills are a benefit during the lifetime of your LED bulbs, and once they come to the end of their life, they can be recycled, too.
Now is the perfect time to consider your LED signs

- Immediate energy savings of up to 75%.
- Longer-lasting bulbs (LEDs last up to ten times longer than traditional bulbs).
- Less time spent replacing and maintaining bulbs.
- Reduced risk of fire.
- Reduced waste disposal costs.
