We help companies improve their lighting by switching to LED whilst significantly reducing the running costs and carbon emissions of the business. As a distributor for one of the largest LED lighting manufacturers in the world we can offer 10 year warranties on the products offered.
Existing technology: 102x 400W Sodium High Bays suspended at 8m. The warm colour temperature of the lights made the reading of bar codes on the packages difficult slowing the whole process down. This was on top of the high maintenance and running costs of the fittings.
Solution: 102x 82W LED Luminaires lowered to 6m. This allowed a lower wattage product to be specified which lowered the investment and payback period. The 5700K colour temperature immediately contributed to a reduction in picking errors.
The LED project was backed by a 10 Year manufacturer warranty from Cree. The selected luminaire has a rated life time of 150,000 hours therefore eliminating lighting maintenance costs way beyond the 10 year manufacturer warranty.
Capital cost: £31,620
Energy saving: £39,142
Carbon saving: 17 tCO2e
Payback: < 1 year
We wanted to invest in a technology that was going to prove its worth and LED lighting gave us exactly that, although the speed of return on investment surprised even us! We will be installing LEDs across all our facilities.
