Difference Between Indoor and Outdoor Neon Signs?

The ability to be waterproof is the most crucial component of outdoor neon signs. Both traditional neon signs and LED neon signs must be specially designed to be water-resistant for outdoor use. While indoor signs only have an acrylic base and LED light tubes, outdoor neon signs will have glues and silicones to protect the wires and seal everything to keep water out.

Outdoor LED lights, in contrast to indoor signs, are typically intended to be seen from greater distances and frequently from higher elevations. Meanwhile, indoor neon signs are designed to be viewed at a closer distance. As a result, they are designed to be much less bright, whereas outdoor LED signs are made to be brighter. Furthermore, because outdoor lights are typically seen from a long distance, they can use lower resolutions without sacrificing visibility.

Display durability, like brightness, is influenced by the environment. Since indoor LED displays aren't exposed to inclement weather, they naturally need less protection, which reduces their durability. On the other hand, outdoor LED signs need weather protection measures, which impact how they are manufactured. 

To ensure that they withstand moisture and that exposure to the sun won't degrade the materials' quality or the sign's brightness, they must be covered with additional materials. In contrast, indoor neon signs don't need all of this unless you plan to use them in rooms or locations where they might get wet.

Can Neon Signs Stand Cold and Hot Weather?

You may probably wonder if your neon lights will be affected when the temperature in your living area drops. Neon signs can sometimes become less visible due to cold temperatures. The temperature drop has an effect on the materials, causing the loss of brightness. Because Argon gas has a negative reaction to colder temperatures, any signs that use it may dim or flicker when it gets cold.

Meanwhile, heat has no effect on neon signs when they are placed outside. In fact, neon signs do not become too hot when used outdoors, contrary to popular belief. These lights had put through much more rigorous testing during manufacturing than they will experience outside. As a result, unless your neon signs were improperly manufactured, there is no reason for heat from the sun to affect them.

As a result, if you choose the right neon sign, they can be used in both cold and hot weather without issue.
