Safety is key!
When we first dreamed up this concept our focus was kids rooms and in home signs. We wanted a safe way to put a name light in our daughter’s bedroom which could double as a night-light. The single most important consideration when comparing our product to others is the safety! Traditional neon is glass and gas, FULLSTOP. It is breakable and toxic, not suitable for homes with small children as we all know.
This is not the primary driver to purchase our signs, we believe our product is far superior to the old traditional stuff, and we have shown the advantages below.
What's the difference?
There is no secret that our signs are different to traditional neon signs. The product we use for our signs is flexible LED neon which can be bent and joined into any shape imaginable, including names, logos or whatever you can dream up.
Lets take a look at the differences in the following table:
