NEON VS LED
ALL YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW
One of the main difference between NEON and LED is the aesthetic. Traditional NEON is charming and has a nostalgic look and feel. Nothing will ever replace the glow that NEON light produce. Made by hand from start to finish and filled with noble gases, each piece is unique and will be the centre of attention. LED flex is a new technology that replicates NEON lights. Made of flexible plastic strip they are easy to install and your piece can be shipped anywhere in the world.
What is NEON light?
NEON lights are hand made from glass tubing. The words or shapes are bent by our experience tube bender using fire. Once the shape desired is finished the tube is starting a full cleaning process using high voltage and then the same tube is filled with noble gas. Different type of gas are used depending of the colour you will pick, Neon is by definition red when it’s on, and argon for example is a light blue. Portions of the sign are painted black to stop those parts of the tube from glowing. This creates separations between letters or design elements.
NEON light are bright, and have a 360 degrees light all around the tube. We can mount the tube on pretty much any surface.
NEON signs generally have visible wires and insulating caps where the wire connect to the neon tube. They also have a transformer which can be mounted on the backing of the sign, or hidden in a ceiling panel, or simply put on the floor. There are ways to keep the transformer out of view, please ask for more info if this is a concern.
Due to the fragile nature of glass, we do not ship traditional NEON light, you can pick up your sign at our studio or we can install it for you in Dubai and other Emirates for an extra charge.

LED flex is a new technology that replicates NEON lights. Made of a flexible LED strip that contains multiple little LED lights inside encapsulated in a silicone or coloured PVC with an opaque layer to diffuse the many points of light into a uniform glow that mimics a traditional neon tube.
The LED is glued to an acrylic background, the light source can be viewed mainly from the front. It can not be installed on a different material or directly to a wall, there will always be a transparent or colored acrylic background.
