Goodlight has announced that Brewers Decorator Centres are seeing a saving in energy consumption after installing high performance, energy efficient LED lighting solutions.
A total of 27,600 sqft of showrooms are now illuminated with products from the Goodlight LED range, offering energy savings of 70-80% per fitting, reducing carbon footprint, saving maintenance costs and enhancing customer experience.
The first five Brewers stores to upgrade to Goodlight LED lighting were Haslemere, Lewisham, London Victoria, Sevenoaks and Surbiton. Energy hungry fluorescent tubes and metal halide high bays were replaced across the stores with Goodlight G5 LED battens, GX1 LED high bays and Eco LED panels. In addition to the energy cost savings, the guaranteed five year, 50,000 hour service life of Goodlight LED luminaires produces maintenance cost savings compared with the rated 20,000 hour life of typical fluorescent tubes.
Goodlight supplied Brewers with 4ft 40W G5 LED battens as a direct drop-in replacement for the outdated twin 4ft T8 fluorescent battens drawing 72W in its Haslemere store, producing electricity cost savings of 80%. Designed to deliver very high levels of output and offer 110 Lm/W, the G5 features a 120° beam angle for optimal light spread.
The Lewisham and Surbiton showrooms were fitted with GX1 high bays, in 120W, offering up to 125Lm/W. These replaced the inefficient metal halide high bays that were in-situ previously, reducing electricity consumption by up to 70% per fitting.
Goodlight supplied Brewers Sevenoaks and London Victoria stores with 600mm square Eco LED ceiling panels that draw just 40W, replacing quad 2ft T8 fluorescent tubes drawing 72W per fitting, to give energy cost savings of up to 80%. They are designed to slot easily into existing ceiling grids and offer even illumination. The LED ceiling panels deliver up to 100Lm/W brightness.
Paul Dennington, premises manager at Brewers said, “Since installation, our running costs have reduced and the lighting levels across our sales areas have improved dramatically. The Goodlight LED lighting provides bright, welcoming illumination allowing customers to accurately evaluate our products. We are certainly considering future installations."
He added, "Brewers’ energy running costs have been reduced since installing Goodlight LED lighting. In addition, the longer life of the Goodlight LED light fittings will reduce our maintenance costs. Our aim as a company is to improve our carbon footprint, and the installation of environmentally friendly LED lighting supports this policy.”
