Protecting Your LED Lights & Signage From The Harsh Winter Weather

The brutal winter weather can take a toll on your outdoor LED lights and signs. From excessive moisture to extreme cold and winds, there are many factors that can work to shorten the lifespan of your LED sign lighting.

The good news? With the right precautions and maintenance, your Calgary signage can stay in good condition throughout the cold winter months.

1. Use the Appropriate Hardware

When you choose LED sign lighting for your outdoor signage, make sure to choose the full outdoor hardware. This is important because outdoor-rated hardware can withstand the elements of winter that may damage your sign including:

  • Moisture from snow or rain
  • Temperature fluctuations
  • Extreme cold

TIP: Having your outdoor LED sign installed by a lighting professional will put it at less of a risk of failure during the harsh weather.

2. Maintain the Right Temperature

The internal hardware of LED sign lighting is designed to function optimally within a specific temperature range and for outdoor signs, this is between 15-25 degrees Celsius.

ASK YOUR SIGN EXPERT for climate controlled signage that has a guaranteed temperature environment. This type of signage will maintain optimal internal temperatures by including system features such as:

  • Heating
  • Cooling
  • Ventilation


3. Build a Weather-Resistant Enclosure

A weather resistant enclosure works well to keep your LED sign lighting protected from the harsh winter elements. This enclosure should be extremely well sealed to prevent any moisture from reaching your sign hardware.

It’s important to ensure that:

  • You have a good seal
  • All cables are routed in a way that will prevent moisture from getting in
  • The enclosure has proper ventilation for air and heat transfer
  • You use weather resistant materials that won’t rust or wear out


4. Monitor Your Sign

It’s very important to monitor your sign’s sensors on a regular basis to protect your signage from any potential damage. At Fluorescent Man Lighting, we provide an affordable and convenient lighting maintenance program to ensure all your needs are taken care of!

This ensures that:

  • Your LED sign lighting is always working at peak efficiency
  • Your signs stay bright and clear
  • The quality of your business is always reflected in your signage
  • You maintain budgetary consistency
