Out With The Old (Commercial Neon Lighting), Toronto, And In With The New!

There was a time when the main thing you noticed about pretty much any city centre anywhere was the fact that everywhere you looked, you saw commercial neon lighting. Toronto, and most other cities, have come a long way since then, and leaps in business lighting technology (particularly LED lighting strips) have given business owners looking for unique lighting options much more flexibility and greatly expanded the realm of possibilities. From multicoloured exterior displays to tasteful interior accent lighting, energy-efficient, flexible, safe and sleek LED strip lighting can transform any business into a space that will turn first-time customers into repeat business by creating a unique atmosphere they won’t find anywhere else.

Lighting for all occasions

Depending on what line of business you’re in, your custom commercial lighting needs will vary. A bar will need something different from a fancy restaurant or a retail outlet or a physiotherapist’s clinic. Even within one business, sometimes you need different things. Maybe you’re a sports bar who wants to dim some lights for a big game without  leaving everyone in the dark, or you’re the owner of a clothing store and you’d really like to be able to change up the colour of your accent lighting to either keep things fresh or to match seasonal sales or the latest colour trend in your inventory. Whatever your needs, programmable LED lighting is the way to go. With older business light systems, you’d have to keep a selection of gels and filters handy but safe for when you eventually wanted to cover your generic lights to try to have a different effect produced. With newer LED systems, all it takes is the push of a button and a virtually unlimited number of patterns and colours are instantly at your disposal.

Safe And Efficient

There are loads of great reasons to switch to LED lighting for your business, either for exterior or interior use. Not only do you get virtually limitless flexibility in terms of colour, placement and patterns, but you are also making a great choice for sustainability, energy-efficiency and safety. Neon and Fluorescent lights are made with gases that can be risky under the wrong conditions, and the fragile glass tubes they’re usually made from can break and leave a dangerous mess behind. Incandescent lights waste a lot of the power they use generating heat rather than light, which both racks up your power bill and also means there are places you just can’t use them safely. A tight, confined space, even around material that would otherwise be damaged (or worse – be a fire hazard) around old fashioned lights are perfect spots to take advantage of the low heat and small size of LED lights.

No matter what your business needs are, there’s no reason to resort to go full-on old-school and install commercial neon lighting. Toronto businesses of all types and sizes can benefit from the modern, efficient and customizable options provided by LED lighting.
