Lighting within cold storage facilities has always remained one of the industries biggest challenges to date. The main choices of industrial lighting have never performed well in refrigerated environments, that is why lots of cold storage facilities are turning to Prolite LED lighting systems.
When LED lights are used to replace less efficient light sources such as Metal Halide or Sodium Lighting, there is an additional saving gained when used in refrigerated environments. In addition to the lighting circuit’s reduced energy consumption, there will also be less power consumed by the cooling system to maintain the desired temperature. This is due to the higher efficiency of the LED light producing less waste heat that previously had to be removed by the refrigeration system.
Prolite LED products offer the following benefits over old technology light sources.
- Flicker free instant start up
- Performance increase within cold environments
- Glass free food safe construction
- Excellent integration with occupancy sensors
- Integrated control ballast to maximise efficiencies
- Longer life product up to 50,000 hours
- Lower carbon footprint
- No mercury of phosphor
- Simple clean process if broken
- Lower operating temperatures
- HMRC ECA compliant
- No UV emissions
- Many more
With Prolite designing a lighting scheme for your site, it removes any guesswork in light level critical areas prior to installation. Our FREE NO OBLIGATION lighting design service includes:
- Photometric data of specified fittings
- LUX level confirmations at working height and floor level
- 3D imagery of areas designed
- Energy savings calculations for the site
Project Example 1
The below project is a cold storage distribution centre for a food processing company in the UK, hence the requirement for non-glass LED light units to be installed. A light level of 400 lux was specified by the client to ensure picking and packing errors are minimised post refit.
|Wattage Before LED||Wattage After LED||Total Watts Saved|
|LUX Before LED||LUX After LED||LUX Gained|
|340 LUX||402 LUX||62 LUX|
*Lux is a standardised unit of measurement of light level intensity (which can also be called “illuminance” or “illumination”)
|Cost Before LED||Cost After LED||Saving|
|£44,486.78 P/A||£19,678.47 P/A||£24,808.32 P/A|
Project Example 2
This project is for another large food processing plant’s new production and packaging areas. This project was a new build where the client was passionate about reducing the companies carbon footprint, whilst maintaining a good level of light within the areas using the most efficient high powered LED light units possible. Prolite was the obvious choice.
|1650W||450 LUX Average|
Our Range Of Typical LED Fittings For Cold Store Applications
Trial and Evaluation
We strongly suggest a trial and test of the proposed solution. As well as confirming the projected LUX levels it gives the customer best opportunity to see benefits of better lighting and ensure that the solution has no unforeseen physical or aesthetic issues on fitment.
Capital Cost Recovery
Wherever commercially advantageous we use ECA approved equipment. Advice and assistance can be provided to allow the navigation through subsequent HMRC paperwork.
Separate finance packages are available for larger projects and cost benefits can be made.
Free Lighting Survey
Prolite Lamps are offering free LED Lighting survey for all types of different applications nationwide.
A FREE NO OBLIGATION on site survey with a demonstration of our products during the survey, we will offer advice upon the following.
- Potential quality of light increases
- Energy saving audit calculations
- Free of charge lighting design service
