What is LED linear lighting

LED linear lighting is a word we often hear in the field of commercial interior design, but what does it mean and how do we use it? This article provides an in-depth interpretation of LED linear lighting, allowing you to understand how and where to use it, and easily turn the office into a cool high-end modern style office!

First let's talk about LEDs. LED is the abbreviation of "Light Emitting Diode". "Light Emitting Diode" is an efficient and durable light source that uses semiconductors to convert electrical energy into light. When an appropriate voltage is applied to the lead, the electrons can recombine with the "electron holes" in the device, releasing energy in the form of photons (light). The color of light is determined by the energy of the semiconductor.

Yes, this is a technical thing, let us understand how LED is formed.

LEDs appeared in early 1962 and were used as practical components in electronic products, such as warning lights. Early LEDs were limited to low-intensity infrared, such as those still used in remote controls. Do you remember those LED watches with black screens that showed red numbers when you pressed the button? The intensity of the first visible light LED was also very low, limited to red, but now modern LEDs can be used in the visible, ultraviolet and infrared wavelength ranges, and high-power lighting can be achieved.

1. What is LED linear
LED linear lights just use many "light-emitting diodes" encapsulated in a long and narrow shell to form a light strip. This simple concept has completely changed the way we illuminate the space.

Before the emergence of the LED linear concept, it was very tricky to illuminate long spaces such as offices, warehouses and retail spaces. These spaces are illuminated by large industrial incandescent bulbs. Linear lighting began to develop in the 1950s and was mainly used for fluorescent tubes in industrial spaces. By the 1970s, this technology was applied to homes, garages and workshops, and retail spaces. This has further created a demand for lower cost, more beautiful lamps. It was impossible to produce continuous uninterrupted light before the LED, because the fluorescent tube had to stop and start to leave black or dark spots.

The improved appearance did not appear until the beginning of 2000, and we know the early version of LED linear lights. The demand for LED linear lights is huge and continues to grow. The difference now is that linear architectural lighting and LED technology have broadened the application range of linear lamps. As aesthetics and performance improve, stand out from the old traditional housings, utilize materials in a better way and adopt more advanced technologies, the industry continues to evolve.
Why use LED linear lights?
Our customers appreciate the many benefits of LED linear lighting, including:

Aesthetics-If appearance is important to you, then LED linear light products are very powerful. It offers a lot of versatility and can be used to create unique and eye-catching designs. Customized angles, curves, and customized appearance colors are just some of the options available to make the application of LED linear lights easy.

Directional light-LEDs are directional, reducing the need for reflectors and diffusers that can capture light.

Color temperature-LED linear lights provide a wide range of color temperature, which affects the way the eyes perceive light. From cold white to warm white, different temperatures can be used to create atmosphere and atmosphere in the space. Neutral white or 4000 Kelvin uses its technical name and is recommended for offices and retail areas that provide the most comfortable environment.

Cost-effective-an obvious advantage, LED linearity operates very efficiently due to its low energy consumption and inherent service life; LEDs are many times longer than fluorescent tubes and usually have a service life of more than 50,000 hours.

2. LED linear curve
LED linear lights can be straight or shaped to create dramatic sculptures for best results.

Straight contours usually produce more subtle effects, but can also be used to create eye-catching geometric designs.

Curved contours usually help to create flow in the space and give a feeling of movement.
Circular contours are often used to help divide the space into zones, especially in open spaces. For example, hanging an LED ring lower than the surrounding lighting on the collaboration area creates a sense of focus.
