Why LED?

LED lamps and luminaires have transformed the lighting industry and have made the most sweeping change in lighting since the invention of electrical light sources. The biggest attraction being the economic benefits from switching. Some of which are listed below.

 

Logistics companies with large warehouses and external spaces to light, through to small offices and retailers, can take advantage of the LED revolution. And to make the transition easier, there is a retrofit LED product for almost every luminaire or an equivalent LED product for any traditional light bulb available in today's market - it is often as simple as "changing a bulb”

Switch to LED Lighting!

Transform your business environment and create a more productive workspace whilst saving up to 85% on your lighting costs.

Here are some of the key benefits:

  • Save up to 85% on your electricity from lighting: LED’s require less watts to produce excellent light so you could dramatically reduce your energy spend. This is especially the case in environments where the lights are on for significant periods of the day
     

  • Pay only for the light you use: LED products cast light only where you direct it - unlike fluorescent tubes which waste light by sending it in the wrong direction therefore you only pay for the light falling onto the required task area
     

  • Reduced maintenance costs: The LED’s we source are insurance backed guaranteed up to 50,000 hours and will often last well beyond their expected burn time. That’s a staggering 50 times longer than some outdated money burning light bulbs. Think how much time and money could save not having to replace faulty bulbs
     

  • Reduced air conditioning costs: LED's produce cold light, many organisations find that they save as much money on secondary system costs such as air conditioning, as the direct electricity savings associated with running LED lighting! This is because LED’s use fewer watts to produce high levels of light, the less watts used = the less heat produced (Especially beneficial for: Retailers – some struggle with cooling, incandescent lighting can generate too much heat for products such as food suppliers)
     

  • Robust: LED light bulbs are considerably more robust than traditional lights (containing glass, filaments and pressurised gases). Therefore, they can often withstand bumps and scrapes and are often suitable in vibrating and other "hostile" environments including cold stores and freezers etc.

 

  • Improved light quality: LED lights are instant on, so no waiting for them to reach their specified lumen output. They don't flicker or strobe, they can have a consistent, high Light Rendering Index revealing true colours of the objects in the lit environment

HEALTH AND SAFETY BENEFITS

  • No glass: High quality LED lights are made in a robust plastic housing so minimises the risks of dangerous broken glass. This means a possible reduction in insurance costs especially for industries where glass can cause huge amounts of down-time if broken glass infiltrates production. (This is common in food manufacturing where glass cannot be picked up with standard food x-raying equipment during quality control).
     

  • No mercury: As well as using much less energy to produce light, LED’s contain no mercury unlike fluorescent lights, so don't require special recycling or disposal procedures. This is highlighted by a reduced WEEE Charge for LED lights
     

  • Reduced fire hazard and risk of burns: LEDs produce "cold" light, reducing the risk of burns and fire hazards. This could also reduce insurance costs.
     

  • Zero UV or IR radiation: LED lights do not produce ultra-violet or infra-red radiation.  Especially useful in museums, retailers, food suppliers and homes where conventional lights can damage sensitive fabrics, exhibits, wallpapers etc.
     

  • Reduced light pollution: LEDs produce directional light. This means that light pollution can be minimised; an advantage for street lighting, particularly in "dark sky zones“

 

  • Hygienic: Some LED lights are fully sealed units (as opposed to lights in an "open" reflecting luminaire) A sealed unit prevents dust and insects getting in therefore reduces additional maintenance costs and hygiene concerns. Especially beneficial in: Hospitals, Food processing factories, Care homes (and other health-conscious organisations)

EVEN MORE WAYS TO SAVE MONEY

Many LED’s can be used in conjunction with smart controls:

  • Daylight harvesting -  Maintains a constant light level and uses the available daylight. This saves up to 70% on individual luminaires and 35% for a building

  • Task tuning – Adjusts light output to the level that is required for the tasks at hand and saves up to 20%

  • Personal control – Allows local control for individual users and gives higher levels of comfort. Saves up to 15%. (but that’s only in energy saving you should also consider the positive effects it has on physical and mental health of the user)

  • Smart scheduling – A feature that switches light on at floors or rooms only when expected to be used. Saves up to 15%

  • Occupancy control – uses occupancy sensors and switches on lights only when somebody is present. Saves up to 30%
