This was a series of 3 buildings we were hired to edge-light the soffit of the lobbies for. 26’ to the ceiling, and on tile. In the dozen or so years since we installed hundreds of feet of tubing, there have been merely a handful of tubes that have needed replacement. As a result, had this been done in LED or fluorescent—there would have been ten of thousands of dollars in maintenance costs in that time. In addition, each time a service call is needed a genie lift is required. With the average neon tube lasting 70,000 hours, no wonder situations like this make so much sense to do in neon. Although slightly more expensive initial purchase price than fluorescent—a better look, and you’ll recoup your investment inside of 3 years (for any project in excess of 150’).
