Led Lighting for Restaurants: What Advantages?

The choice of lights for your restaurant should therefore fall on LEDs, which are practical, economical and ecological. There are various shapes and sizes and you can choose particular lighting systems with extravagant designs and shapes, or you can simply opt for spotlights installed on the ceiling sketch and etch neons.

Traditional  chandeliers suspended above the table can create an intimate atmosphere, but the comparison in terms of efficiency with a color-changing RGB LED light would be merciless .

The use of led stripsfor your restaurant could be the turning point.

A very interesting type of lighting architecture has been created specifically for restaurants: these are the so-called ” Led Strips “, a strip formed by flexible film with a series of LED diodes capable of emitting brightness. It has modest dimensions (1.6 cm wide, 0.3 cm thick) and can be attached to any surface using the adhesive on the back. The power consumption is very low and the light emission is very efficient.

This lighting solution offers an ideal result if you want to  illuminate a restaurant with a diffused and at the same time homogeneous LED light , even in places where it would be extremely difficult to apply any lamp. Comfortable  aluminum profiles for led strips could also be used for wall or furniture fixing.

Another solution adopted by an Italian company is called “Blade System” and includes a “Star Wars lightsaber” style lamp consisting of a continuous recessed profile, which can be applied to the wall or ceiling in order to obtain diffused lighting. indirect light.

With this technology it is also possible to choose the luminous flux and the desired light temperature (warm, neutral or cold). Presence detectors and light sensors are installed to allow further and efficient energy savings.

In addition to the aesthetic aspect, however, the LED lighting system must comply with the reference legislation and must allow the kitchen staff to work with precision .

Even in the case of lighting the restaurant kitchen, the use of LED lamps, preferably directional, is recommended.

Although the cost of LED lamps is clearly (but always cost less!) Higher than traditional incandescent and luminescence lamps, if you think about a long-term investment, given the almost non-existent maintenance costs and above all the considerable savings in terms of use of electricity, it is certainly worthwhile to install LED lighting systems in any restaurant and public place.

The increasing attention paid to LED lighting can only be considered a growth factor for our society: in one fell swoop we focus on the livability of a place, its beauty, the environment and on saving on bills by decreasing waste.

All this can be summed up with LED technology. And of course the restaurants are not “spared”.
