Coca-Cola – Renovating signs

Neon is beginning to fall out of fashion, and more and more old neon signs are being refurbished and remade into LED signs. Focus has done a couple such refurbishments, including the Coca-Cola sign in Slussen, Stockholm. We took down the sign faces containing the old neon, repainted them and the used the neon lamp as a model for the new LED “tubes” or LpContour. Signs especially exposed to weather benefit particularly from such a refurbishment, as LEDs can withstand wind and rapid changes in temperature much better than neon lights do. Also, the new solution only consumes one tenth of the electricity that the old neon solution did.
