New lighting helps cut costs
02 October 2017
Middlesex Aerospace has made between 50 and 80% energy savings following the replacement of old fluorescent lighting with energy efficient, low maintenance LED tube lighting. The company adopted Goodlight LED lighting to meet its commitment towards ISO14001 and expects payback within 18 months.
Middlesex Aerospace specified Goodlight GX1 Plus (150W) LED High Bays, G5 LED Battens, T8 LED Tubes and LED Ceiling Panels for the main production factory and inspection area at the 50,000ft2 site in Hampshire.
John Masey, senior buyer at Middlesex Aerospace, said: “Once we had made the decision to switch to LED lighting, we chose Goodlight because of their commercial success over the past 11 years. The fact they have full design control of their own manufactured products, technical support in the UK and were one of the first on the market with this LED technology, made us confident we were choosing the right company.
“Since the installation, we have been very impressed with the light quality which is evenly distributed over the factory floor. The new Goodlight LED lighting is flicker-free, reducing eye strain, has low UV emissions and promotes performance amongst our staff, greatly improving the working environment. In addition, we are making substantial energy savings and have eliminated maintenance costs.”
The lights are specifically designed for retrofit applications and can be quickly and easily installed into existing fixtures. Goodlight LED products are guaranteed for five years and rated at 50,000 hours.
