Neon Lighting

The Benefits of Neon Signs

Neon has a long history, having been used for nearly a century. As an established technology, it’s reliable. You know what you’re going to get from it. It’s everywhere, all over the world, and finding dealers and servicers for neon signs is extremely easy in virtually any city worldwide.

Additionally, many believe that neon light is more aesthetically pleasing. It gives off a much “warmer” light than LED lights do. Plus, thanks to its association with the Art Deco movement and countless films showing drizzly, neon-drenched city streets, it does have an undeniable romance to it.

Unfortunately for neon, that’s about all it has going for it these days.

Neon signs are made using electrified, luminous tube lights that contain rarefied neon or other gases. They are the most common use for neon lighting, which was first demonstrated in a modern form in December 1910 by Georges Claude at the Paris Motor Show. While they are used worldwide, neon signs were extremely popular in the United States from about 1920–1960. The installations in Times Square were famed, and there were nearly 2000 small shops producing neon signs by 1940. In addition to signage, neon lighting is now used frequently by artists and architects, and (in a modified form) in plasma display panels and televisions.  (source: wikipedia)
