Money Saving
Car Park Lighting
Your new LED lights will pay for themselves with the money they save you annually.

The Future Lighting solution

We designed, supplied and installed a new Energy Efficient lighting solution to reduce energy used, control lighting during occupied periods only and eliminate the considerable on-going maintenance costs.

This included:

  • The remove all old technology, high wattage light fittings to all lobbies, stairs, reception and facility rooms throughout
  • Replacement of staircase lighting for new LED Bulkheads with integral Occupancy Detectors installation, preventing wasted energy used during unoccupied periods.
  • Replacement of all communal lobby area lights for new retro-fit LED alternatives.
  • Installation of remote occupancy detectors to apartment communal lobbies as a means of controlling lights during occupied periods only.
  • Replacing the under-croft car park lighting for new LED alternatives and replace the existing controls with microwave technology so only controlling lighting during occupied periods during dusk hours
  • Supply 5 Year Guarantee documents
  • Supplying a 5 Years Guarantee and FREE on-going maintenance

Within a typical apartment lobby we have specified the replacement of old type 50W halogen spot lights with new 4W LED alternatives. Not only will this save vast amounts of energy usage (90%) and high maintenance costs, it will also improve lighting levels too.

The main staircase used old type switch-start compact fluorescent bulkheads lights which were 10-15 years old and been constantly repaired. The fittings back plates and diffusers were brittle and discoloured. In addition they were controlled via a grouped PIR system meaning all lights switch on when any detector was triggered.This type of control is now inefficient and integral sensors were used to prevent grouped switching.

TAll compact 35W fluorescent fittings were swapped for new 14W LED alternatives with integral occupancy and light level detectors so switching lights “on” only during dusk hours and when occupied only. Those areas alone are calculated to save 60% plus in wasted energy. Examining footfall patterns isolated these staircases were rarely used. This saved energy costs and also eradicated all on-going maintenance issues, saving both time, inconvenience and additional costs.
