LED lighting is a solid-state lighting that uses light emitting diodes (LED) as a light source. It has high light output with lower power consumption than conventional lighting. LED lighting replicates daylight and displays excellent ‘clean’ light, reducing shadows and improving the working environment.
Although they might be initially less costly to purchase, traditional incandescent lamps are comparatively inefficient, as over 98% of the energy input is emitted as heat. LED lighting has a very low heat output (they can even be used to light ice sculptures), therefore they are extremely energy efficient, especially in cold store environments, which leads to reduced running costs.
We identify and minimise risks
Our LED lighting design and installation service can provide a safer working environment for you, your employees and site visitors. This reduces the risk of on-site health and safety incidents which can lead to:
- HSE fines and lawsuits
- Production downtime
- Business Closure
LED lighting can help businesses run more smoothly and efficiently and provides the following benefits:
- Cleaner and clearer light – this can reduce shadows and help create a safer working environment.
- Eliminated Toxicity - LEDs contain no hazardous mercury or halogen gas which means no WEEE charge on disposal.
- LEDs eventually fail by slow dimming rather than the abrupt burn-out of incandescent bulbs. 50,000 hours will only use 70% output at the end of this time.
- Quick On/Off time - LEDs light almost immediately. A typical LED will achieve full brightness in microseconds, meaning that lights can be switched off when not required rather than being left on. This means that visibility is maintained rather than waiting for sodium lighting to fade up.
We remove avoidable costs through a comprehensive range of solutions
We offer a complete energy efficient design and installation service for LED lighting. The LED lights are individually built and fitted to support the environment in which they are situated. Each of the LED units offer innovative lens technology to allow the height and focus of the light to be positioned for optimum visibility.
Why choose LED Lighting?
- Dramatically reduced energy costs
LED lighting has a higher light output with lower power consumption leading to reduced energy bills
- Lower maintenance costs
LED lighting requires minimal maintenance without degradation
- Lower replacement costs
LED lighting lasts between 50,000 – 80,000 hours compared to the typical lifespan of an incandescent lamp of around 1,000 hours and fluorescent lamps of between 10,000 and 20,000 hours
- Shock resistance
LEDs, being solid state components, are difficult to damage with external shock, unlike fluorescent and incandescent bulbs which are fragile
- Environmental impact
LED lighting is more environmentally friendly due to the dramatically reduced wattage required to power them. Using LED lighting in your business can reduce your Carbon Footprint dramatically and save you money in energy bills. Due of their Green credentials, purchasing LED lighting can be assisted by the Carbon Trust (often in interest free loans) and can lead to annual Climate Levy Savings.
