Characteristics of RA Models

The RA Suspension and RA Murale models have a cold cathode neon as the source of light, manufactured by hand in Montreal. The following characteristics are related to this technology and cannot be considered a defect:

  • Additional wiring is required to make the lamp brightness variable.
  • The transformer can emit a slight noise when the light is varied at a low intensity.
  • The appearance and dimensions of the neon tube may vary slightly.
  • A mixture of rare minerals is present in the glass tube to give the light its radiance and warmth. Very small stains may appear over time.
  • The neon sign tubes used are designed to last for years, their lifetime can be reduced in case of impacts that create micro-cracks. D’Armes offers tube replacements, additional charges apply after the warranty period.
