New LED UV lamp is environmentally friendly
Available from May 1st, our new SAFELED lamp uses the latest technology electronic UV-A LED lights to deliver an environmentally friendly and cost-effective solution.
The lamp contains 12 UV-A LED lamps. Each lamp can be used for over 50,000 operating hours. This means if the lamp is used for 4 hours a day, the LED life is 12,500 days - so it's highly unlikely that you will ever need to replace the lights.
The SAFELED is not inexpensive at 495 Euro, but is cost-effective when you calculate the cost of a traditional UV lamp plus replacing the bulbs twice a year - and the effort to buy bulbs. Also, unlike traditional mercury based bulbs that damage the environment the LED lights are safe and don't reduce the UV-A output over time - which can result in under-cured gels.
Please note that the SAFELED is only compatible with our Gentle gels or other gels designed for LED lamps.
