A good percentage, if not all, LED signs built and shipped directly from China are not safety rated (UL or ETL agency listed) for outdoor use which is an immediate electrical hazard. Unfortunately, because of the lack of safety rating, the sign cabinet is poorly constructed and not completely weatherproof allowing water to penetrate. And when the LED sign fails, what kind of warranty does it have? Many come with 90 day to 3 year warranties, but how fast can the consumer contact China for parts and who will pay the expenses to get them?
At Vantage LED, all possible manufacturing and assembly of the LED signs is performed in their facility in Corona, CA. Production is systematic, controlled and streamlined for superior quality and their LED signs are ETL safety rated. The sign cabinets are coated with a safe and “green” non-volatile coating which adjusts with the weather and allow no water penetration. If the need arises, all of their signs are backed with a comprehensive 5 year warranty with parts ready to ship backed by U.S. based proactive technical support.
VANTAGE LED'S SUPPORT AND SERVICE IS IN THE USA.
Many consumers know the frustration of contacting a “US Company” and getting routed overseas for customer or tech support. With a LED sign coming directly from China, not only will the consumer contend with the time difference or knowledge of the product, but the language barrier as well.
At Vantage LED, the "Made in the USA" model goes beyond solely manufacturing the product; they also design, engineer, test and offer proactive U.S. based support. Vantage LED believes the consumer should speak with an employee who works directly with the product at the CA facility; someone who gets where the consumer is coming from, with no pre-written scripts, normal working hours, and vast product knowledge.
It’s time for a change in this country to support U.S. built products and realize the importance of quality and support, especially when purchasing a LED sign. “MADE IN THE USA” isn’t just a term used to sell the LED sign. Vantage LED believes it’s a total philosophy on believing in the place where they live and work, delivering the best product and support possible. Every day, in every way they are working to make their consumer’s experience and investment the best it can be. Help make a change and support U.S. built products and companies, like Vantage LED, who is working hard to lead by example.
