LED strip lights provide an ideal source of showcase lighting in any situation involving heat sensitive items. Materials such as makeup, textiles, foods, produce, can quickly deteriorate when exposed to forward radiant heat and/or ultraviolet light. Phantom LED festoon light strips generate only a small fraction of the heat of incandescent or Xenon equivalents, with the radiant heat of each individual lamp being roughly equivalent to that of a 1 watt light bulb. This makes them not only well-suited for various forms of retail showcasing, but also for museum lighting of historical documents, antiques, and ancient artifacts.
Over the past decade, we have also seen a growing demand for LED strip lights in cove lighting design work. LED Cove lighting requires both an optimal beam spread and a high lumens output that can dispel all shadows along a curved surface. Because it can be such a chore to replace cove lights when they fail, a longer lamp life is preferred in order to curtail maintenance costs. Furthermore, because cove lights tend to remain on for longer periods of time than task lights, it serves a budget well to use an energy efficient light source. Phantom led lights strips fulfill all of these requirements. With only 1.7 watts of power, the Phantom LED lamp is designed to ultimately replace all 3, 5, and 10 watt incandescent and festoon lamps by minimizing current without sacrificing light intensity.
Phantom LED strip light bulbs have also worked their way into larger industrial spaces as power savers and key components to LEED certification. In areas where scaffolding or man lifts must be used to service cove lighting systems in hard to reach areas or tall ceilings, Phantom LED light lamps reduce costs by exponentially reducing lamp replacement cycles. No other festoon bulb offers longevity comparable to a Phantom’s 50,000-hour lamp life. Incandescents burn out after approximately 7,500 hours and Xenon’s after about 20,000 hours. Incandescents and Xenon festoons also consume more power and emit less light.
