Found one very interesting fact posted that show picture of damage done by UV.



This person is 69 years old, but half of his face looks much, much older than that. He was a trucker and, for 28 years, his face received much more sunlight on the left side, resulting on premature aging.

What PHILIPS is talking about LED Lighting?


Think LED lighting is complicated? Think again.

Everyone is talking about LED technology as people begin to understand the long list of benefits associated with this environmentally-friendly light source and the quickly growing worldwide campaign to be “green.”


What was once used as an indicator light in watches, calculators and electronic devices is now lighting up entire buildings and fa├žades and creating phenomenal effects at concerts and events (as seen during the recent opening ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics). Over the years, LED technology has mainly been used for these types of single color and multi color-changing applications. As the technology continues to advance however, there is great opportunity to apply the benefits of LEDs to general illumination applications that will change light as we know it today.

Benefits of LED technology

LEDs have numerous benefits that make them an ideal choice for many common applications, but how do these benefits translate into a better choice for you and your customers?

Energy efficiency
LED sources can be 5 times more efficient than incandescent and most halogen sources and are quickly gaining ground on fluorescent.
TIPS : Using energy efficient sources not only translates into energy savings, but is also becoming increasingly important as legislation and new regulatory requirements limit energy use in new construction and renovation. The use of LED fixtures can help facilitate compliance with today’s standards and regulations.

Environmentally safe
Standard fluorescent and compact fluorescent sources contain mercury and therefore may require special handling for disposal and/or recycling and also contribute to hazardous waste. In contrast, LED sources are mercury-free.
TIPS : Because LED sources are mercury-free they are safe for the environment and do not pose recycling challenges like fluorescent sources do.

Long lifetime
LED sources can have lifetimes significantly longer than traditional technologies.
TIPS : Long lifetime means less replacement and maintenance requirements which can result in significant cost savings.

No emitted infrared or ultraviolet radiation
LEDs provide illumination without emitting harmful infrared or ultraviolet radiation.
TIPS : Use LED fixtures in heat sensitive areas, near people, and tight spaces where conventional light sources could be dangerous or potentially damaging. The ultraviolet radiation emitted from fluorescent sources can degrade materials like plastic and fabrics as well as fade paint and dyes-therefore, LED fixtures are ideal to use in retail displays and in places like museums or art galleries to protect the quality and aesthetics of the illuminated object.

Durability
LED sources are very durable and can withstand impact, vibration and other disruptions.
TIPS : This durability makes LED sources ideal for extreme environments, areas susceptible to high vibration and other environments where it may be difficult to install and maintain traditional light sources.

LED Lighting Product endorsed by JUST Like!

The mission of JUST Like! is to support on GREEN environment and one of them is to promote on GREEN Technology that is PRACTICAL, MATURED and AVAILABLE. These are the 3 key word that have been emphasized.


PRACTICAL - performance wise, it has to be one to one replaceable with either equal performance or exceed the current performance. Price wise, it has to be reasonable and affordable. Work wise, it has to be something that we can do within our reach like DIY.


MATURED - the technology on LED is base on Light Emitting Diodes that has been around since in the 60s. No doubt it is very matured.


AVAILABLE - if the product is not yet available, it will also be an issue.


Last but not the least is that the tested/evaluated product have a very solid Safety and Quality standards that meet not only the local standard requirement but also international standards requirement.


See the below photos without any Photoshop enhancement.






The LED T8 Tube deliver more lighting (not glaring light) compare to the traditional T8 Fluorescent Tube.


By using LED lighting, we eliminate the use on Mercury Vapor in our traditional lighting. To know the fact about Mercury, click HERE.  As LED lighting provide much longer service life (50,000 - 60,000 hrs), easily 6 - 7 times more longer than our Mercury base lighting, hence we REDUCE on waste. Not to mention, we also REDUCE on electricity by more than 50% and up to 80%. 


As LED lighting produce much lesser heat compare to Mercury base lighting, we also REDUCE the electricity use on our Air Conditioner.
