Commercial lighting standards are governed by factors such as quality, durability, and longevity.
Commercial lighting standards are governed by factors such as quality, durability, and longevity. While price is often a crucial consideration, it should not be the sole determinant. The key disparity between domestic and contract lighting products lies in their ability to withstand extended operating hours, which can be up to 5 to 10 times longer in commercial settings.
A warranty of just 1 or 2 years, with a 30,000-hour lifespan, is inadequate for commercial use. For such purposes, a minimum lifespan of 40,000 to 100,000 hours, accompanied by a warranty of at least 5 years, is imperative.
Utilising low-quality lights in commercial properties will result in frequent replacements within a span of 3 years or less. This incurs additional maintenance costs, whereas opting for superior lighting solutions would eliminate such expenses.
Our expertise has demonstrated instances where customers experienced zero maintenance for up to a decade by utilising high-quality lighting products.
In the United Kingdom, luminaires suitable for businesses must comply with the BS EN 60598 standard, which guarantees a build quality of 50,000 hours. Meanwhile, for European suitability, adherence to the EN 60598 standard is essential. However, it is important to note that variations may exist among European countries, necessitating compliance with local deviations from the EN 60598 European standard.
By adhering to these professional lighting standards, LEDlights4you will ensure optimal lighting performance and minimize maintenance costs in the long run for our customers.
