FUTURE Designs educational presentation on ”LED Vs Fluorescent Lighting” has been accepted by CIBSE as official CPD Course material.

FUTURE Designs is a specialist in LED lighting design and manufacture and has pioneered the greatest seismic shift in the lighting sector for 60 years as LED has begun to surpass fluorescent lamps as the lighting medium of choice.

The wide adoption of LED has many advantages and as a consequence the significance  of lighting design and product has never been higher on the agenda.


The most obvious advantage of LED is the reduction of energy consumption which is between 25% and 70% depending upon the application. In terms of ‘payback’ of the capital expenditure it is in the region of 3 years when combining energy and carbon reduction with a product life of more than double compared to fluorescent.

Another key issue is the reduction of maintenance due to the increased life expectancy which can be up to 80,000 hours and as a ‘solid state’ light source LED provides instant 100% illuminance without a warm up period.  Aesthetically LED offers more flexibility in design following for better creative solutions.
