Neon FAQ’s

What colours can I get?
The colour chart above indicates the broad range of colours available. Contact us for more information about the colours available.

How long does a neon light last?
Neon lights can last for decades but as with any other type of light, it depends how much it’s used. If the light was theoretically left on 24 hours per day, you could realistically expect the lifespan to be 8 to 15 years.

Is neon dimmable?
Yes, but the brightness is set directly with the transformer when the neon is first installed so once set it then remains at that level of brightness. We have preferred suppliers with years of experience who will set it to your perfect level when they install it.

How does a neon light work?
A neon light is a general term as neon lights actually use either neon or argon gas. A glass tube is filled with either of these gases and electrical connections are fitted at either end. A high voltage is then applied which ionizes the gas, causing it to emit coloured light due to fluorescence. Different colours are created through different methods: (i) neon appears red-orange and argon appears pale blue and (ii) clear glass tubes are coated on the inside with a fluorescent powder that emits different colours.

Is neon fragile?
Neon lights are made using glass tubing so yes, they’re relatively fragile. If they’re likely to hang in a vulnerable place, they can be mounted in perspex to protect them from breakage.

Can neon be repaired?
Yes. Damaged glass can either be repaired or sections replaced. Each break is different so give us a call and we’ll help you out.
