LED lights and signs are created using light emitting diodes (LEDs) which are strung closely together so that the light they emit overlaps and creates a steady source of light. LED signs are usually lighter and more protected than neon lights as LEDs are often wrapped in their own polymer jacket to protect each diode from external damage.
LED uses solid-state semiconductors that offer energy savings and are eco-friendlier than neon gas.
The lightweight nature of LED signage is a boon when it comes to size and placement. Unlike traditional signs that depend on heavy backings and fluorescent or neon tubes, signs that use LED neon light illumination feature a lightweight LED backlit panel and other lightweight components.
