LightBoxes.us.com, a DisplayShops specialty website, is offering Energy Efficient LED light boxes in a variety of ultra-thin sizes. Featuring LED lights that last over 100,000 hours, these poster displays boast a 40 percent energy savings when compared to traditional bulb light boxes.
"Unlike standard light boxes that use fluorescent bulbs, these models employ LED (light-emitting diode) technology," said Sandra Reno, webmaster for LightBoxes.us.com. "These light boxes illuminate your graphics with LED's running along the inside edges of the frame. The CNC-engraved acrylic light panel provides smooth, even illumination across the surface, even on large-format graphics."
Major advantages to using LED light boxes over fluorescent bulb types include lower energy consumption (34 Watts), a longer life span (11 years when used 24 hours/day, 7 days/week), as well as a much thinner profile (.83-inches thick).
"Because of their long life spans, LED light boxes are being installed as permanent advertising display fixtures in airports, transportation stations, shopping malls and business lobbies," said Reno.
