Goodlight, the award-winning UK LED lighting manufacturer, has announced that Brewers Decorator Centres are seeing a visible saving in energy consumption after installing high performance, energy efficient LED lighting solutions. A total of 27,600 sq. ft of showrooms are now illuminated with products from the Goodlight LED range, giving energy savings of 70-80% per fitting, reducing carbon footprint, saving maintenance costs and enhancing customer experience.
Brewers, the specialists in decorating materials, opened its first shop in 1904 and has enjoyed successful growth ever since. Its centres stock an unrivalled range of wallpapers, paints, varnishes and soft furnishings, supplying decorating products to tradespeople and the general public alike. The first five 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 significant energy cost savings, the guaranteed five year, 50,000 hour service life of Goodlight LED luminaires produces considerable maintenance and cost savings compared with the rated 20,000 hour life span of typical fluorescent tubes.
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.”
Goodlight supplied Brewers with 4ft 40W G5 LED Battens as a direct drop-in replacement for the outdated twin 4ft T8 fluorescent battens drawing 72W in its Haslemere store, producing electricity cost savings of 80%. Delivering very high levels of output and offering 110Lm/W, the G5 features a 120° beam angle for optimal light spread. Available in daylight, natural and warm white colour temperatures, the G5 is glass-free and maintains an attractive appearance for showrooms as well as being robust and durable in workplace environments.
The Lewisham and Surbiton showrooms were fitted with the highly reliable GX1 LED High Bays, in 120W, offering up to 125Lm/W. These replaces the inefficient metal halide high bays that were in-situ previously, reducing electricity consumption by up to 70% per fitting. Superior performance lies at the heart of the GX1 with an innovative, patented cooling column with ‘phase change’ technology that swiftly and evenly pulls heat away from the LED across the heat sink.
Goodlight supplied Brewers Sevenoaks and London Victoria stores with ultra-thin, 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 beautiful, even illumination. These LED Ceiling Panels deliver up to 100Lm/W brightness and are ideal for retail spaces.
Paul Dennington 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.”
Saima Shafi, Sales and Marketing Director at Goodlight said, “It is exciting to see how Brewers are realising significant and on-going reductions in their business overheads as a result of replacing inefficient lights with best in class Goodlight LED products. Our products are already proven in trade centres across the country and we are confident that Brewers Decorator Centres will continue benefiting from ongoing annual savings in both energy consumption and maintenance costs, alongside unrivalled, high quality lighting levels. Consistency and reliability are assured with all Goodlight LED lighting products.”
