Why upgrade?

Light Quality

Light is something we rarely actively notice in our day to day activities, however, the impact of light quality can be enormous.
 

  • Increased lux level
    Light intensity is measured in lux at floor level. An upgrade from high pressure sodium typically takes floor level lux from a relatively gloomy approximate 200 lux to an average 400 lux, creating a much brighter environment.
     

  • Uniformity
    Bright, clear lighting has limited application without directionality., particularly in settings with high sided shelving or tall assets.  We design a light scheme to fit your individual space, making sure the lights are positioned optimally and the correct optics are applied to each luminaire. This effectively controls light pooling and areas of shadow.
     

  • Better colour rendering 
    Our luminaires rank highly on the CRI (colour rendering) scale, which means that surfaces and colours below are well defined and clear. Yellows and whites are clean and clear, which is essential for facilities with marked out walkways and safety / hazard markings.
     

  • Controlled glare
    With particular reference to low bay ceiling lights and lower,  much brighter light sources can create glare if not effectively managed during the design phase and with the correct fitting. All of our lower level lighting uses patented Waveguide technology to eliminate glare 

 

Performance

The most common motivation behind a lighting upgrade is the huge potential for a reduction in energy use. Most facilities require lights around the clock, making them a constant drain on resources and an unavoidable culprit for racking up CO2 emissions.

A good quality upgrade can offer:

  • A reduction in light energy burn (and therefore spend and emissions) in excess of 80%, when upgrading from more traditional lighting technologies such as high pressure sodium or halogen. This can move in excess of 90% with the addition of smart controls and automation.
     

  • Instant on / off, so there is no wasted interval while the lights warm up
     

  • A reduction or elimination of costly ongoing maintenance, as your luminaires should not fail before the expiry of their operational lifetime (typically a minimum 12 years). Our luminaires come with a full replacement warranty, for your peace of mind.
     

  • The high efficiency of a correctly designed LED upgrade allows for a rapid payback via energy savings (typically 12 to 24 months for industrial customers). This saving goes straight back onto your bottom line following payback, for the remainder of the systems operational lifetime.

 
 

Longevity

You can expect a CRT LED fitting to function effectively for upwards of twelve years with hard use, reducing the replacement costs, labour and distruption associated with regularly changing out failed lights.

 

However, it's import to choose luminaires which have been designed with your intended use and environment in mind. Constant use, vibration, atmospheric dust and erosion can and will significantly shorten the life of luminaires not designed to handle these stressors. 

Our X-Range is designed for use at height and includes the following design essentials:
 

  • Downwards facing heat sink
    Lights under prolonged or permanent operation are going to get hot, unless appropriate measures are taken to manage it. This heat can damage a luminaire and significantly shorten it's operational lifetime. ​ Most luminaires come with a heat sink to help dissipate this heat but while most luminaires feature heat sinks on the top, our X-Range features a more unique downwards facing heat sink, to prevent dust and debris clogging the fins and rendering the sink ineffective.
     

  • Robust build quality
    It's essential for commercial and industrial luminaires to feature a robust build quality and the best components. Our luminaires are designed to function and excel in environments with fluctuating temperatures, vibration and atmospheric particulates.
     

  • Sealed units
    The X-Range has been painstakingly evolved to reduce production material and unnecessary interior volume. Interior spaces are sealed to protect against moisture and debris ingress and exterior surfaces are galvanised to offer protection against corrosion.
