Black Light Lifetime
LED black lights are more energy efficient and have longer operating lifetimes than black lights made with fluorescent, incandescent, or mercury vapor lamps.
Fluorescent and other lamp types are also very fragile and subject to breaking. LED lights are extremely durable, work well in vibrating or rough environments, and are not hazardous if damaged.
Black Light Spectrum
Fluorescent black lights emit a wide spectrum of UV-A light that generally peaks around 365nm. Much of this light is not useful. The emitted lower wavelength UV-A (close to 315nm) may cause cancer through indirect DNA damage.
SST’s LED black light used at EPIC Fun emits a fairly narrow spectrum of light that peaks at 400nm (+-10nm), very close to the visible range (400nm to 700nm). It doesn’t emit any lower wavelengths (UV-A) or dangerous (UV-B and UV-C) light.
