LED lighting has significantly different characteristics to fluorescent, metal halide or incandescent lighting. Adaption of existing fittings is never as efficient and also can cause maintenance issues as these are normally well used.
What makes a good LED light?
There are three components required to make an efficient LED light.
- Only branded LED chips will perform efficiently and have a lasting performance. Our latest lights use Philips chips and have the highest efficiency lowest depletion.
- Efficient Heat dissipation can only be achieved with a specific grade of alloy which normally forms part or all of the casing acting as a heat sink to dissipate heat.
- Quality drivers are essential as they have the hardest job, transforming from 240 vac to low voltage DC. TUV or similar quality control standards are essential to ensure build standards and it is essential that they are over engineered to ensure a longer life.
Most business have the lighting on constantly in business hours, therefore lighting needs to be maintenance free with a build life of at least 50,000 hours.
Where projects require a guaranteed lighting standard we will provide a diaLUX report alongside the energy survey / quotation.
