Display Case Lighting

Proper display case lighting is absolutely critical, especially when displaying luxury inventory, like jewelry. Lighting can dramatically affect the appearance of your product, particularly the coloring. When lighting display cases, LED Lights are the most suitable.

At Obsidian Manufacturing, we understand the importance of presenting your valuables, merchandise, or collectibles in the best light possible. That’s why we advocate for the use of LED lighting in our display cases. LED (Light Emitting Diodes) lighting technology has revolutionized the way items are showcased, combining aesthetic appeal with practical benefits to create the ultimate display solution.

Cost-effective and Energy Efficient

LED lights are both cost-effective and energy-efficient. They tend to have long life spans and are available in an array of color temperatures and colors. Many LED lights can be low profile or dimmable, and they can often mimic familiar incandescent, neutral white, or cool blue light. This makes LED lights a versatile and flexible lighting solution for retail display cases.

Longer lifespan LED lights have an incredibly long lifespan and typically only need to be replaced every 35,000 hours.

It should be noted while the upfront costs of investing in LED lighting is higher because they last longer, your lighting costs in the long run may actually be lower.

Here are some additional things to consider when converting to LED display case lighting:

  • The type of LED light fixture you choose will depend on the size and shape of your display case, as well as the desired light output.

  • You will also need to choose the right color temperature for your LED lights. The color temperature of a light is measured in Kelvin (K). Warmer light temperatures (2700-3000K) create a more inviting and relaxing atmosphere, while cooler light temperatures (4000-5000K) create a more crisp and professional atmosphere.

  • LED lights can be dimmed, so you can adjust the light output to create the desired mood or atmosphere.

  • LED lights are typically more expensive than traditional lighting technologies, but the upfront cost is offset by the savings on energy bills and maintenance costs.

Why Choose LED Lights for Display Cases?

Unmatched Energy Efficiency

LED lights consume significantly less power than traditional lighting solutions such as incandescent or halogen bulbs. This efficiency translates into lower energy bills and a reduced carbon footprint, aligning with our commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship. By incorporating LED lighting into our display cases, we ensure that your displays are not only beautifully illuminated but also cost-effective and eco-friendly.

Superior Longevity and Reliability

One of the most compelling advantages of LED lights is their longevity. LEDs can last up to 50,000 hours, which is several times longer than other lighting options. This extended lifespan reduces the need for frequent replacements, saving both time and money in maintenance costs. Furthermore, LED lights are more durable and resistant to breakage, ensuring that your display cases remain lit without interruption.

Enhanced Visual Appeal

LED lighting provides a clear, vibrant light that can be adjusted to suit various display needs. Whether you’re showcasing delicate jewelry, intricate models, or valuable antiques, LED lights can be tailored to highlight the unique beauty of each item. The versatility of LED lighting allows for the creation of dynamic displays, enhancing the visual appeal of your products and making them more attractive to potential buyers or admirers.

Minimal Heat Emission

Traditional lighting solutions can produce a significant amount of heat, which can be detrimental to sensitive items or create discomfort for viewers. In contrast, LED lights emit very little heat, making them ideal for display cases containing delicate items such as artwork, electronics, or perishables. This feature ensures that your valuable items are preserved in optimal conditions, free from the risk of heat damage.

Versatility and Customization

LED lighting solutions offer unparalleled flexibility in terms of design and customization. With options for dimming, color changing, and remote control, LEDs can be customized to create the perfect ambiance for any display. Whether you’re aiming for a warm, inviting glow or a bright, attention-grabbing spotlight, LED lights can be adjusted to meet your specific requirements.

Advantages Of LED lighting

Overall, LED display case lighting offers a number of advantages over traditional lighting technologies. Businesses that convert to LED lighting can save money on energy bills, reduce their environmental impact, and improve the appearance of their products.

In addition to the advantages mentioned above, LED display case lighting can also help to:

  • Improve the visibility of products

  • Increase sales

  • Create a more inviting and attractive shopping experience

  • Enhance the overall appearance of a business

If you are considering converting to LED display case lighting, we encourage you to do so. The benefits are clear, and the investment is well worth it.

The Port Colborne Museum just ordered our very first custom designed display case for our museum in an 1860s house. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Justin worked with me to design a perfect mix of modern and traditional to fit our Museum's aesthetic. He was very knowledgeable and professional and easy to work with. We look forward to working with Obsidian again for our next display cases.

Justin was excellent to work with. He was able to get our project done within our limited timeline. We considered doing an IKEA kitchen, but working with Justin was so much simpler. He took care of the details, and his price was very comparable to IKEA.
The owner Justin was awesome to deal with. He really took his time to work with me on the design that would work best for what I was trying to accomplish. As a sports memorabilia collector, I knew I wanted the best showcase to display my items. I absolutely love what we came up with and would highly recommend Obsidian Manufacturing to any other collectors or even retail outlets out there. Top notch for sure!
