Integrity Print Solutions
Integrity Print located in Somerset approached us as staff had expressed concerns about poor visibility and a gloomy atmosphere under the current metal halide lighting within their warehouse. Integrity operate 24 hours a day, so they wanted an efficient cost effective solution as well as better lighting and atmosphere.
We worked with Lighting Services in Bristol to create a proposal offering the latest LED technology. A proposed 98W fitting could effectively be run at 80% and still exceed desired lighting levels. Under running an LED fitting also increases its already impressive lifetime of 50,000 hours. This brings a huge reduction in the maintenance costs over traditional metal halide systems when fittings are installed in high up areas of a warehouse ceiling.
We also installed Intelligent controls which play a vital function. Occupancy sensors on each fitting can effectively keep it dormant at 20% output until triggered by an employee or vehicle.
By combining technologies we were able to estimate impressive savings in energy and maintenance with an ROI within 3 years.
Dave Wright, Supply Chain Manager – Integrity, Comments:
We took our time to see a number of suppliers and proposals, but in the end, it was an easy selection. Lighting Services and J Bracey Electrical are not tied to any one manufacturer and gave us clear and independent advice. The install was superb, and the warehouse was fully operational throughout.
We now have excellent consistent lighting in the areas that we are working while maximising our Energy savings by dimming back the lights that are not needed.
