Ushering in a novel way of lighting up spaces, offering economy and elegance with safety, LED lights have stormed into the lighting arena with a range of products that are mind boggling. Of great importance is the need to feature the lights in non-corrosive fittings, to ensure extended life of the LED lights and drivers. Many users are unaware that the housing of fittings is as important as the fittings themselves to offer extended life span of products. Here is a short list of some of the advantages of LED non-corrosive fittings.
Prevents damage to the surface
A corroded fitting is bound to leave stain marks on the surface where the fittings are mounted. The surface could be an expensive or tastefully designed and executed feature. Rather than mar the surface and later spend a considerable amount trying to get it fixed, it would be a safer option to go for non-corrosive fittings and enjoy the benefits of LED lighting fully. The decision to go in for LED lights is undoubtedly prudent, but it needs to be accompanied by a choice of non-corrosive fittings to draw full benefits of the LED lights.
Avoid sagging or awkward hanging of fittings from ceilings and walls
A corroded fitting is likely to come unhinged or loose from the wall or ceiling, at some point of time. This will create an awkward situation and call for urgent fixing. Corroded fittings give way at the locations where rivets, nails, screws are fitted, apart from the heavier locations. It is safer to opt for fittings that are non-corrosive so as to continue enjoying the elegance and beauty of your LED fittings.
Reduce risk of jagged edges cutting into cables and wires
Corroded fittings have the uncanny ability to cut through cables and wires as the corrosion lends the surface a sharp edge where the corrosion is heavy. This could be a potential hazard to the occupants of the house through electric shock. Electric appliances and fittings need to be chosen to comply with safety ratings and most importantly offer a safe atmosphere by remaining intact throughout the expected lifespan.
