The history of lighting dates back to approximately 70,000 BC when hollow rocks, shells or other natural-found objects were filled with moss (or a similar material) that was soaked with animal fat and ignited.
Down through the years the evolutionary light process continued, moving through oil and gas lamps until finally, in the 1870s, came the invention of the first electric incandescent lamp. This was followed by further refinements and developments in electric lighting technology, but the relative recent introduction of LED technology represents a quantum leap forward in the evolution of lighting.
What is Led Lighting?
LED lamps are solid-state lamps that use light-emitting diodes as the light source. While the initial costs are higher than fluorescent and incandescent lamps, LEDs have longer life, high energy efficiency and offer an infinite variety of lighting and colour-changing options. It is also extremely flexible in that it can be configured for all manner of external and internal lighting applications
