GOOD LIGHTING MATTERS
Lighting in industrial spaces (manufacturing, engineering, processing, warehouses, logistics and sheds) is extremely important to the users in those areas, and the work that is being carried out in them. It also has a direct impact on productivity, well-being of staff, and sometimes even health and vitality.
Traditionally, industrial lighting has demanded energy intensive, high powered lighting solutions, in the form of metal halide, sodium and mercury-vapour light sources. Until now. With the development of high powered LED lighting, there is the option to have very powerful lighting using a fraction of the energy, driving cost-reduction through energy and maintenance savings.
Lighting at heights has also proved very costly when it fails, which is another benefit of LED, with the ultra-long lifespans and added reliability of premium LED products.
Daylight Availability – many industrial buildings have the opportunity to use natural daylight. Either by special roof construction, or by replacing roof panels with translucent panels to let the light in. The objective for any daylight benefits should be to provide a diffused daylight, not direct sunlight which can result in glare and strong shadows.
Goodlight Industrial LED fixtures are suitable for almost any industrial environment. For busy warehouses and logistics lighting, our GX2 Linear LED High Bay is ideal to illuminate racking and aisles, delivering over 130Lm/W, with built-in dimmability, making it ideal to integrate with controls. With an IK10 rating, it has the highest impact protection against accidental damage.
Where a circular light beam is required, in large open industrial spaces, e.g. above equipment and machinery then our GX1 LED High Bay range provides ultra-reliability and peace of mind, with its unique PCM (Phase-change material) cooling. Watch the video here.
Our industry-leading GX1 Plus LED High Bay model, pendant-style, delivers over 20,000 lumens, and is suitable for extreme heights beyond 12m.
For LED low bay lighting, try our stunning black GX1 LED Low Bay with variants from 80W to 280W, which is also suitable for exterior flood lighting with its IP65 ingress protection rating.
Where colour critical work is being carried out, the lighting must have good colour rendering properties, of at least 78Cri or more. This would apply to any areas where components are colour-coded such as in electrical assembly, or where colour-processing such as in a car production plant – Paint Shop, or where food is being processed or displayed – its colour is used to judge freshness.
ENHANCED CAPITAL ALLOWANCES SCHEME (ECA)
You can claim 100% tax relief via the Enhanced Capital Allowance Scheme against capital expenditure on Goodlight LED lighting solutions – it’s a great time to invest in your LED lighting scheme. Find out more here.
WIRELESS LIGHTING CONTROL
Monitor, automate, control and report on all connected lighting, wirelessly, with Light Boss™ Wireless Lighting Control. Automate your lighting triggered by occupancy, daylight or user preference. Light Boss™ dims down your lighting when no one is around or when it detects natural light, and turns back on again when it is needed, for the ultimate energy efficient lighting control. Suitable for new builds and retrofits.
Pay As You Save With Bright Plan
Fund your new LED lighting upgrade with the energy savings made each month.
All Goodlight LED lamps and luminaires can be funded through our simple, manageable leasing scheme, Bright Plan Pay-as-you-Save.
Bright Plan enables businesses to fund the cost of their new Goodlight LED lighting from their operating budgets, allowing the replacement LED lighting to be paid for directly from the energy savings made, with extra left over, each month.
With no upfront cost, our Bright Plan leasing scheme has zero impact on the cash reserves of your business. Our rates are flexible and can be fixed between two to five years, making budgeting easier. At the end of the term, you own the LED lighting outright, and our ultra long-life LEDs will continue to save your business money for many more years ahead.
Moreover, rates can be significantly lower than typical bank lending. Bright Plan is tax-smart too, with fixed monthly costs 100% allowable under UK taxation rules.

LED & SMART Lighting Controls
As LED lighting has developed over the last 10 years, so has the development of lighting control solutions, to further enhance lighting efficiencies and improve functionality of lighting in working buildings. Most guidance directs employers, business owner and government agencies to install efficient lighting systems, with added control as the most efficient solution.
Goodlight retrofit LED lamps incorporate integrated control where possible, or can easily be configured to work with existing controls such as DALI, 0-10V and leading or trailing edge.
Ask about our wireless lighting and energy control platform, Light Boss™ which puts lighting control into your hands via our lighting app, and delivers a truly connected lighting system, without business disruption and the huge upfront costs of a wired-in solution. By integrating sophisticated wireless controls into Goodlight products, you are able to decide on the optimum lighting levels for performing varied tasks at various heights and working conditions, and you’re allowed to change your mind! You can group lighting in zones, to operate at differing levels and at different times. You can monitor daylight options where natural light is available, and can avoid dark zones in high safety areas to always retain a basic level of light. Our clever, yet simple app puts the control in your hands – you can change an entire lighting set-up within a few clicks, or literally minutes.
It is the most cost-effective way of upgrading your lighting, and allows users to see the energy performance of their lighting in real-time, as well as options to include self-test emergency lighting
