What is the lifespan of a neon sign?

March 28, 2014 1 min read

We quite often get asked what the typical lifespan of a neon sign is, and generally we answer that the neon tube itself should stay illuminated for at least 10 years, if not nearer to 20.

However, we recently came across this article in the Daily Mail which tells the story of a neon light that was left on for a staggering 77 years! The neon was only discovered when Clifton’s Cafeteria in Los Angeles underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment.

If that’s not good return on investment in a neon sign, we don’t know what is!
