LED Innovations with GE Current Tetra Line and AgiLight

How LEDs Are Reshaping the Industry

As a leading distributor of LED lighting components, Piedmont Plastics is committed to providing innovative solutions that harness the power of LED technology. LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, pass an electrical current through a semiconductor material, causing it to emit light. Unlike traditional lighting sources such as incandescent or fluorescent bulbs, LEDs produce light through electroluminescence, which is highly efficient and generates minimal heat.

This efficiency translates into significant energy savings, longer lifespan, and reduced customer maintenance costs. Additionally, LEDs offer versatility beyond comparison, with options for customizable colors, dimming capabilities, and directional lighting, making them the preferred choice for a wide range of residential, commercial, and industrial applications.

An Expert is just around the corner.

With over 100 years of combined product knowledge and industry experience, we are confident our plastics experts can help you find a solution for your application.

Common Applications

In commercial settings, LED lighting is key in enhancing functionality and aesthetics. LEDs offer solutions that cater to various needs, from illuminating office spaces to accentuating retail environments.

Additionally, their energy efficiency and long lifespan make them attractive for businesses looking to reduce operating costs and maintenance efforts. Important applications of LED lighting include:

  • Commercial Lighting: LEDs are widely used in offices, retail stores, restaurants, and hotels for general illumination, task lighting, and accent lighting, providing efficient and customizable solutions that enhance productivity and ambiance.

  • Outdoor Lighting: LED technology is employed for outdoor applications such as street lighting, parking lot lighting, architectural lighting, and landscape lighting, offering bright and reliable illumination for safety, security, and visual appeal.

  • Signage and Displays: LEDs are the preferred choice for signage, displays, and illuminated graphics due to their vibrant colors, long lifespan, and versatility, making them indispensable tools for effective advertising and branding.

  • Horticulture Lighting: In horticulture, LEDs create optimal lighting environments for indoor farming, greenhouse cultivation, and vertical farming systems, facilitating healthy plant growth, increased yields, and extended growing seasons.

  • Healthcare Lighting: LED lighting solutions are essential in healthcare facilities, providing task lighting, examination lighting, and patient room lighting that is both comfortable and efficient, contributing to patient well-being and staff productivity.

  • Industrial Lighting: LEDs are used in industrial environments such as warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and logistics centers. They serve as high bay lighting, machine lighting, and safety lighting solutions, improving visibility, safety, and operational efficiency.
