Our letter A which is part of our Neon Art collection, is a fusion of the old and new. Built up letters were traditionally illuminated by neon which was more often than not hidden inside to provide a glow. This has now generally been superceded with LED. This piece of neon artwork serves to show the neon tubes as an artform rather than just illumination, with coloured neon twisted around the plain white letter neon A.
Material: Built up metal letter with wooden base; Colour: Various; Size: A - 530mm (w) x 790mm (h) Base 900mm (w) x 530mm (d) x 100mm (h).
Real glass neon is more elegant looking than its LED alternatives, as real neon offers 360 degree light around the tube.
Neon signs contain either neon gas, or a combination of neon and argon gas, both which are harmless inert gases that our found in the air that we breathe.
Neon signs are not expensive to run. A typical size of neon sign that would be used in a home or business for decorative or branding purposes, will cost £60 or less per year to run, which is approx 16p per day.
Neon signs do not get hot and are completely safe to use in both businesses and homes.
Neon signs are fully recyclable, unlike their LED alternatives which end up in landfill.
You may have come across the term ‘LED neon sign’, but there is actually no such thing – it is either a neon sign (as described above) or an LED sign, which is made from plastic / silicone and LED lights. If it doesn’t contain gas in the sign, then it isn’t a neon sign!
