UK distribution for Bright Green Matrix LED backlighting

March 13, 2009
Date Announced: 13 Mar 2009 Robert Horne is delighted to announce a new partnership with LED manufacturer Bright Green Technology, which specializes in solid state LED backlighting systems for the signage and outdoor advertising industries.Bright Green Technology develops and markets proprietary backlighting systems built on their own patent-protected technology. Their mission is to dramatically improve the environmental performance and ROI of all backlit advertising and signage by replacing fluorescent tube displays.The deal takes effect from March and represents a major benefit for the Robert Horne Group and its customers by adding further depth to its existing wide range of LED products which includes the world renowned Philips Affinium LED string system.This new partnership will see the addition to Robert Horne’s comprehensive LED portfolio of Bright Green MatrixTM, an LED backlight system designed to illuminate large format signs, light boxes and displays.Bright Green MatrixTM is a patented suspended array of LEDs used to increase or decrease the light output, in line with the performance and budget requirements of the project. With global warming continuing to sit at the top of the public agenda, retailers and corporate organisations have begun to recognise the many benefits associated with LED in comparison to traditional lighting of cost savings, lower energy usage and improved performance. Bright Green MatrixTM offers a real alternative to fluorescent tubes by reducing energy consumption by up to 80%, eliminating maintenance costs and producing evenly lit graphics without the ‘zebra’ striping associated with tubes.The economic case is compelling. A typical multiple retailer with 100 large illuminated display sites, each containing 40 fluorescent tubes could save more than £600,000 over the lifetime of the signs and reduce carbon output by 4000T.The ProductBright Green MatrixTM is supplied in standard lengths, each pre-installed with LEDs spaced at 125mm intervals. The LEDs are housed in robust aluminum sections which protect the lighting components, help dissipate heat and provide a rigid profile which can be easily fitted into existing or new light box housings. Each length is supplied with connection cables and the LEDs are coated for external use.ApplicationsBright Green MatrixTM is ideally suited to signs, displays and light boxes in corporate and retail environments. It is equally suited to retro-fitting into existing boxes or incorporating into new designs.InstallationBright Green MatrixTM allows full flexibility when designing and installing. By adjusting the spacing between the Matrix lengths and hence the density of the LED array, the light output and power requirement can be pre-determined.Bright Green MatrixTM is supplied pre-drilled for simple fixing to the base of the light box or to an internal bracket. It can be fitted vertically or horizontally within a light box. There is no limit to the size.Steve Lister, Business Development Director for Robert Horne Sign & Display commented “There has been a lot of initial interest in the new product from end users and sign makers and Robert Horne is delighted to offer this new Bright Green MatrixTM LED System from Bright Green Technology. In today’s market place Sign Makers certainly need to be advising and informing their customers about the many benefits of modern LED lighting; by doing so they are ensuring they are adding value to their service offering. Recommending ‘greener’ alternatives and saving clients costs are certainly two of the most important considerations and Robert Horne is proud to be able to offer a comprehensive LED product portfolio plus support and advice to their customers on this important topic. Bright Green Technology is an emerging force in this market and Robert Horne looks forward to introducing more of their products in the future”
