A customer recently asked: Will LED display lights work to light a piece of art from 15 feet away?
This seemed like just the thing to address in today’s blog post.
The short answer is yes, LED display lights can light an object from that far away. LEDs can be just as bright as other display light sources, and therefore can light objects from just as far away. They might even do a better job, since LED lights in general are more directional. You can aim the light to just where you want it.
However, to know how your LED display light will work from far away, there’s one factor you have to pay attention to: beam spread.
Do you require a focused spotlight beam or a wide floodlight beam?
To illuminate a single object or small point, make sure your LED light source has a spotlight beam. Look for lights that cast beams between 10 and 45 degrees.
If instead you require a wider distribution of light, choose a light source with a flood beam greater than 45 degrees.
Of course, if the fixture you want offers the wrong beam spread for your needs, you can often replace the light bulb to achieve the perfect results.
LED display lights certainly can highlight objects from far away. It’s just up to you how they do it.
