Different types of neon lights
Custom neon lights have been in trend for some time now. These lights consist of brightly glowing bulbs or at times electrified glass tubes which contain rarefied neon gases. Neon lights can also be seen as related to fluorescent lighting at times but the neon signs are seen as more durable and efficient.
Types of neon signs
Custom neon infinity boxes
They provide optical illusion by taking the neon tubing and moulding it to a shape of your choice, multiple times.
These are the kinds of designs we see at bars and receptions which grab our attention.
Custom neon on print
Designs are brought to life after we choose a print of our choice and attach it to neon tubing design. It presents beautiful contemporary and colourful styles and allows us to add customisations to it.
Custom neon mirror boxes
Designs are imprinted on a mirror with the help of a laser which makes them low-key eye-catching as the design looks striking against a mirror background. These boxes can be set up anywhere and they make a good gift for people. These boxes add to the style of any restaurant or a cafe.
Custom neon art
Neon is being used in contemporary art these days and is really popular. Artists give vent to their creativity by transforming their ideas with neon.
Traditional and LED neon lights
Traditional neon lights can be classified as hand-crafted glass tubes. They produce lights from the reaction of several inert gases, which emit fluorescent colours when gas atoms release energy. Neon tubes are fragile creations and can be damaged if handled properly. In addition, they are costly to repair and maintain. Apart from that, they consume more energy costs and concerns. However, it has an authentic vintage feel to it, and it's a deciding factor for some people.
LED neon lights use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that are closely positioned to allow an overlap of emitted light. They are more durable and lighter in comparison to the traditional neon lights. They have a dimming feature and do not need much power to operate.
The LED neon lights have a higher life expectancy and are brighter. They are maintenance-free and easy to install.
