Amenity Lighting Installer
Lighting internal and external circulation areas like stairwells, car parks, toilets, corridors and changing rooms is a drain on finances. This is particularly true where the bulkhead lighting was fitted a while ago. Older systems tend to be less efficient and need to be left on all the time or manually switched by users of the space. Whatever area you manage – Croydon hotel, business, public building in Bromley etc, you should consider an update of your amenity lighting system.
2D lighting solutions
2D lighting is an excellent solution for areas that need to be illuminated the whole time e.g. internal corridors, busy changing rooms. The problem with 2D amenity lighting is preserving the life of the bulbs as frequent switching will significantly shorten their life. The worst case scenario would be a low power system with cold start HD gear. Despite this, you could find that you are making 20 – 30 percent savings on your existing lighting bill.
As an installer of amenity lighting, we would suggest that dimming is the best solution for this type of system. Better even than warm start gear as it is much better at preserving bulb life. If there is enough natural light entering the area, adding in a dusk/dawn sensor is a good choice also.
LED bulkhead lighting installation
Where an area is subject to intermittent use such as stairwell of an HMO or hotel, or archive room, the use of LED bulkhead lighting is ideal. LED systems offer savings of upwards of fifty percent and give immediate full strength lighting, unlike phosphor based lighting which needs a few minutes to reach full illumination. We mainly recommend and install LED bulkhead lighting that has built-in microwave sensing to control switching. Another advantage of LED amenity lighting installations is that the life of an LED is not shortened by frequent switching.
