It has been reported in Lighting.co.uk that the findings of a study by researchers from Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany were misrepresented. It has since transpired that the scientists in the study did not actually use LEDs, but instead a high intensity Xenon lamp in combination with different wavelength filters. The spectrum of the lamp used in the study was found to be “vastly different from those of white-emitting LEDs for illumination.”

Online retailer, Simple Lighting co. offers a wide collection of LED home and outdoor lighting. Naturally the story was of great interest to the team, who were pleased to see that the original inaccurate finding has now been disproved. A representative from the firm shares their thoughts on the matter.

“Professor Brunetto Brunetti has conclusively stated that the researchers did not experiment using LED lights. LED lights are much more efficient, brighter and clearer than typical bulbs as well as emitting less heat which is why they are used by so many people, for so many uses around the house.

“Hopefully the news that the report was wrong will be as well distributed as the original news. Those with any queries about LEDs are more than welcome to speak to us here at Simple Lighting.”

The concluding report found that “commercially available white LEDs are less dangerous in museums for the ageing of yellow painting pigments than other light sources, including fluorescent lamps and daylights.”

The company has grown considerably in recent years and supplies over 4000 products, specialising in LED lighting, LED tape, LED strip lights as well as indoor and outdoor lighting.
