Neon is a noble gas that emits a red glow. By mixing it with argon or container, you can have any colour you like. Neon tubes are made of glass and shaped according to the desired character or logo. They are then filled with neon or a combination of neon and argon. Because the pipes can be shaped almost freely, they are very suitable for illuminatingletters in particular. For natural reasons, however, there are limitations to how detailed or how small the letters can be made on the curvature of the neon tubes.
NEON SIGNS OR LED SIGNS – THAT IS THE QUESTION
At FocusNeo, we have more than 50 years of experience in the project management, design, construction and installation of signs. Our award-winning sign designers help hundreds of clients every year with profiling and to find the right expression for their signage. Nowadays, new neon signs are only manufactured when you want the authentic neon look and there are other options available. In the long-term, signs with neon are more costly and less environmentally friendly than signs with similar LED technology. Today, we usually replace neon with other technologies, which can provide the same feeling as the neon variant, but which save up to 90% in energy consumption. Below you will find a link to our page about neon-resembling LED signs.
We also provide servicing and maintenance of older neon signs. Contact us if you would like to know more.
