Award-winning LED lighting brand, Goodlight, have announced that Paperline, a supplier of disposable hygiene products is seeing a noticeable saving in energy consumption after installing high performance, energy efficient LED lighting in its 25,000 sq ft warehouse and offices in Bristol, replacing outdated fluorescent lighting.
Martin Peters, Warehouse and Logistics Manager at Paperline commented, “We were very keen to switch to LED lighting, not only because of the substantial reduction in energy costs but also for the added health and safety benefits that a more vibrant lighting structure would bring, particularly in a warehouse environment, making it a safer place to work and significantly improving working conditions. We chose Goodlight LED lighting because of the quality of the light, long life span and significantly reduced maintenance costs.”
Goodlight supplied Paperline with GX1 LED Low Bays as direct replacements for the 240W metal halide lights in the warehouse and G5 LED Battens to replace the outdated fluorescent tubes in its offices. Both luminaires are IP65 rated, have demonstrated energy savings of up to 75% and provide optimum light output, offering an impressive 110 lumens per watt.
“Installing the lights was problem free” continues Martin Peters. “The new LED lighting has certainly generated a positive reaction from not only the staff but from customers and visitors too. The light is evenly spread and illuminates all of the areas that were previously shrouded in shadow. As soon as the first Goodlight LED luminaire was installed the difference was immediate.”
Commenting on the success of the project Saima Shafi, Sales and Marketing Director at Goodlight added, “We are delighted with the success of this warehouse LED lighting project. Our LED lighting technology offers more efficient light at lower cost and is virtually maintenance free. The LED lamps and luminaires reach full brightness instantly and are free of the migraine-inducing flicker of traditional tube lights. The lamps have a lifespan of 50,000 hours and come with a 5 year guarantee.”
Martin Peters concluded, “We have started to see some really impressive energy savings. Calculations show that over a six month comparable time period, the total Kilowatt hours before LED lighting were 60,577.1kwh with a consumption cost of £7,455.25 but after the installation of Goodlight LED lighting, this was reduced to 43,641.6kwh and a consumption cost of just £5,260.85, providing direct energy savings of 68%.”
