LED Lighting Tech is the Future

LED Ribbon Tape

LED lighting technology is one of the most interesting, evolving forms of tech because of its broad applications, diverse usage and the fact that it is advancing all the time.

It is often the LED lights that seem the most simple that are proving the most popular. Your everyday LED Ribbon Tape is one of the most widely sold and used products within the LED industry. It is not the most advanced but it is one of the most adaptable.

LED ribbon tape and other LED products such as lamps and rope lights had humble beginnings in widespread use. Although they were always cutting edge and are now used in big displays, computer screens and many televisions they had trouble breaking into the world of useful everyday residential lighting. LED ribbon tape made this possible because it ushered in a whole new fashion in the lighting industry.

Previously, lighting in your home was a slave to its fixture. Lighting meant a bulb plain and simple and a bulb meant a lighting fixture; lamps, overhead lighting, chandeliers and various other fixtures for holding the bulbs. A whole interior design fashion accessory evolved from the need to have a fixture to hold and hide the bulb. This is because frankly the bulb, the source of the light was not necessarily attractive in its own right. LED ribbon tape and other similar products mean you can just see the visible light and there is no need for a fixture. They are easy to install and can be put almost anywhere.

Without the necessity of a fixture specialist accent lighting is now possible. Light can come in various shades, moods, tones, colours and intensity and be placed anywhere in your home even in draws and under shelves. They are great for creating an atmosphere or helping you find things without a torch in dark cupboards and corners. It is the development of this side of LED technology that has allowed LEDs to recently break into the residential lighting industry.
LED Illuminations are a fantastic LED lighting distributor who can supply LED lighting globally for both domestic and large commercial applications and even give in-depth industry knowledge as to which product will work best for your application.

In other aspects of the LED lighting industry technology is steaming ahead and recently Apple has invested in micro LED lighting technology companies. In Wales, a local LED company has received a £1.9m boost backed by Finance Wales so it is clear governments and corporate giants see the huge potential of LEDs beyond residential lighting.

The paved area looks neat and clean and adds great landscaping to your garden by separating lawn areas. Creating different areas to your garden allows you to have different atmospheres and plants. A paved area is perfect for potted plants. Paved areas are especially popular as it is thought to create an exotic feel to your outdoor spaces and can better utilise the space of smaller gardens. Driveways can also be improved vastly by a fresh paving job.

In the past natural stone has been most popular for paving in homes. Commercial buildings would normally choose concrete paving for its ease but the beautiful and varied effects of imported, foreign natural stone were most prized in homes. This gave a wide variety of choice in the look, texture, marbling and colouring of the stones chosen, however more recent technologies have allowed concrete slabs and paviours to mimic this look very accurately.  Concrete paviours are cheaper than natural stone but looks just like it thanks to new techniques in its manufacturing. It is easier to maintain, cheaper and looks just as good as the natural stone and is less easily eroded by the elements.

Mona Precast have a great range of paviours and slabs to choose from in a wide range of colours and textures, whether you are looking for a contemporary feel or a rustic atmosphere.
