LED Concepts has installed thin profile 2” deep light boxes using a revolutionary LED light source from ION Light Engines for environmentally-friendly See’s Famous Old Time Candies at their stores in San Rafael, CA and Denver, CO.

The brilliant LED backlit light boxes contain 12 to 30 graphics each, displayed horizontally. The thin-profile, two-inch-deep displays combine superb styling aesthetics with superior functionality, the all-welded extruded aluminum construction of the lightweight frame ensures premium product durability and is 100% recyclable.

The energy efficient light boxes also use a unique remote power source for the ION Light Engines that takes advantage of Low Voltage Class II technology to provide a power supply with user replaceable power modules.

LEDs are solid-state light engines that last from 50,000 to 100,000 hours, compared to T-5 and T-8 fluorescent lamps that only last from 8,000 to 20,000 hours. LED-illuminated light boxes deliver four times greater energy efficiency than light boxes using fluorescent lamps, and enable users to qualify for energy and tax rebates. The energy savings per light box is a whopping 65% over T-8 fluorescent lamp technology.

See’s Famous Old Time Candies’ thin profile light boxes using the high performance LED ION Light Engine:
• Increase energy efficiency since LEDs last up to seven times longer than light boxes using T-8 fluorescent lamps.
• Do not radiate infrared heat (IR), reducing building heat load and decreasing air conditioning costs.
• Do not emit ultraviolet (UV) light, which reduces the fading of graphics.
• Do not contain heavy metal pollutants or toxic gases to operate, as with fluorescent lamps.
• Do not introduce mercury into landfills, as is the case with improperly disposed of fluorescent lamps.
• Reduce maintenance costs by eliminating fluorescent-lamp replacement.
• Can operate in harsh environments and withstand temperatures ranging from -40° F to +185° F. Fluorescent lamps have executable difficulties in cold environments.

The energy-saving technology, lower maintenance costs and extreme durability of LEDs decrease CO2 emissions, reduce the associated carbon footprint and help protect the environment to ensure a stable climate for future generations. LED illuminated light boxes from LED Concepts meet federal standards for energy efficiency and green manufacturing regulations. They are fully recyclable at end-of-life, and contain no heavy metals or other hazardous components.
