FWB, an established supply chain partner, have replaced their outdated fluorescent lighting across its three strategic sites in Stoke-on-Trent, Wrexham and Truro with Linear LED High Bays, LED Battens and Eco LED Ceiling Panels. A total of 8,200 sq m of warehousing, trade counters and offices are now illuminated with long life, energy efficient Goodlight LED lighting. FWB chose Goodlight for the quality and value of the products as a distributor and made the switch to save costs, reduce carbon emissions and improve the workplace environment.
Established since 1963, FWB provides a diverse range of products including pipeline and fittings, fasteners, tools and workwear to the industrial, infrastructure, construction and public sector markets. FWB were looking to replace all of the inefficient lighting in its three trade counters and offices to save on energy and maintenance overheads. FWB selected Goodlight Eco LED Ceiling Panels which have been designed to slot into existing ceiling grids with ease, making them the thinnest and most lightweight panel on the market. The Eco is a modular LED Ceiling Panel that delivers up to 95Lm/W, providing reliable, colour consistency that transmits over 95% light efficiency. The Eco is compliant with LG7, providing a good luminaire balance between task areas, walls and ceilings.
Lighting for the warehouses included G5 LED Battens and GX2 Linear LED High Bays, both of which deliver very high levels of light output offering 110Lm/W and 130Lm/W respectively. The G5s and GX2s are rated to IP65 (waterproof) and provide further protection from dust, ice, heat and corrosion ingress. Both LED fixtures are completely glass-free and shatterproof, making tehm suitable for busy, working warehouse environments. All Goodlight products are guaranteed for five years and rated at 50,000 hours.
Sarah Lee, Marketing Manager at FWB commented, “As a business with multiple branches, our energy costs were significant. After seeing the successful installation of Goodlight LED lighting at a number of our customers’ premises we made the decision to replace the old lighting in all our sites. The installation was straightforward and completed within two months. The service from Goodlight has been first class from start to finish.”
She continued, “We decided to upgrade to LED lighting not only for the substantial reduction in energy costs and carbon emissions, but also for the improved light quality, and the added health and safety benefits. The high ceilings in our warehouses are difficult to access and we were changing light bulbs constantly. These long life LED lamps will reduce maintenance drastically. We now have consistent light levels and can see everything easily. The results are outstanding and everyone is happy.”
