In early 2013, Interstate Outdoor Advertising began testing LED light fixtures for lighting advertising sign faces in various locations -the goal being to determine if LED as a light source was a viable option to replace 400W Metal Halide fixtures on 14' x 48' bulletins and 12' x 25' posters.
After installation of Lumerica LED fixtures, Interstate Outdoor consistently sees a 75% reduction in energy usage when compared to the Metal Halide fixtures they replaced. A 50,000 hour component life also means a minimum of 10 years of operation before maintenance is required -Lumerica's fixtures are also completely modular and can be serviced to last additional life-cycles.
Last, but not least, the Lumerica LED Fixtures provide a cleaner, fresher look to the sign faces.
"The results have been impressive.... we are looking forward to working with Lumerica as we move ahead with our conversion to LED fixtures."
