LEDs have a much longer lifespan than other types of lighting, up to 20 years in some cases and LED lighting is also capable of displaying a broad spectrum of colours, which adds to their appeal in display environments.
Although generally more expensive than conventional lighting, LED lighting will eventually pay off, and in the meantime, you will get less radiant heat production, longer bulb life, and you could even control them with your Smartphone.

Learn about the uses of UV LED lighting in horticulture, the benefits and the applications. We will explore the many ways in which ultraviolet can benefit the horticultural market and explain how UV light can benefit wildlife and the growing process.
Horticultural LED lighting is used to support and boost growth of plants by illuminating them with artificial light. Plants absorb this light and convert light energy into chemical energy through the process of photosynthesis. So why use white light?
ILS was proud to play a supporting role to Andy Skirrow Projects and Cameron Balloons this summer at the Bregenz Festival 2019/20 in Austria. ILS LED modules were used to illuminate a giant balloon which was deployed as a key element of the stage set
