The new system needed to offer an increase of light levels across the area whilst offering a 5-year maintenance free solution too. Inefficient fluorescent fittings were previously fitted across the site at 8m height which needed frequent maintenance using expensive access equipment and gave very poor light levels for the task of picking and packing orders.
The client was looking for a low-cost, LED upgrade that guaranteed increased light output whilst reducing not only the company’s carbon footprint and energy usage, but a reduction in maintenance costs over the lifetime of the new system.
After a site evaluation, the Prolite lamps design team completed a lighting design for the area to ensure light levels would be increased to fall in line with CIBSE guidelines post installation. The design team recommended that high output LED High Bay Disc lights were installed – these have been proven to be the most cost effective, most efficient, low energy solution for this type of application whilst meeting the light level criteria set out by the client. These units were installed across the site upgrading the existing luminaires out of hours to ensure minimal inconvenience to the site.
The results were a massive 50% saving on energy usage, minimised maintenance costs, doubling of light levels and a return on investment in just 2.5 years. The 5 year product warranty guarantees that the site will achieve these savings.
