The End of Neon Tubes - ElektoFLEX 360

The extinction of Neon Tubes has been foreseen since the introduction of ElektoFLEX Flexible LED systems. However the one feature that saved the neon Tube from the confines of History, was its ability to project light throughout its 360 degree diameter, unlike its LED Competitor.

Key Advantages:
• LED High Energy Savings
• LED Extra Long Life (up to 100,000 hours)
• Low Voltage Safe • 360-Degree Radial Illumination
• Flexible
• Virtually Indestructible
• UV Resistant
• Designed for Direct Replacement of Glass Neon
• Bright as Glass Neon
• Will not shatter like Glass Neon
• Easy and safe to transport unlike Glass Neon
• Requires no special tools or training to bend into complex shapes
• Perfect for replacement or new construction
• Smooth consistent 360-degree illumination
• Available in a wide variety of colours
• Does not operate on unsafe high voltage ballasts
• Mounts and adapts to existing glass neon isolators

ElektoFLEX 360 is uniquely engineered to project light in 360 degrees to perfectly emulate neon lighting effects both from a point source viewing perspective and a back glow effect. This makes ElektoFLEX 360 a perfect replacement for glass neon in both linear and signage applications and creates stunning effect when used for cove lighting applications creating a perfectly smooth Halo illumination.
Utilizing advanced LED technology and material processing techniques ElektoFLEX 360 compares to glass Neon visually however ElektoFLEX 360 is supplied in rolls and cut to length on site using standard tools. Installation can be completed in minutes instead of hours and most importantly, it gives off no hot spots. ElektoFLEX F360 is waterproof and utilizes standard AC or DC voltages which make the product safer than neon. 
Consuming around 15% of the power consumed by Neon and with a life of up to 100,000 hours ElektoFLEX 360 provides a 21st Century environmentally friendly alternative to Neon.

Kevin Knight, General Manger of ElektoLED Ltd, said "It looks like the only installations of Neon Tube Lighting that will survive, will be those in Museums... and I don't mean for providing illumination!"
