LED lighting specialist, Goodlight, has announced that Hi-Speed Services, an independent transport and logistics company in Surrey, has refurbished its offices and warehouse with high-performance, energy efficient LED lighting to improve the ambience, saving costs and reducing environmental impact.
Hi-Speed is committed to lowering its carbon footprint and already provides a green courier service, using vehicles that emit less carbon and save on fuel. As part of its continuous drive to reduce carbon emissions and lower energy consumption further, Hi-Speed embarked on a programme to replace the lighting in its 26,000 sq ft depot in Surrey and its 22,000 sq ft double warehouse in Rugby with a more energy efficient technology.
In selecting Goodlight Eco LED ceiling panels and IP65 G5 LED battens, the company was able to downsize the number of light fixtures needed due to the increased light output. Hi-Speed now gets brighter illumination with fewer lights, which not only lowers energy consumption and maintenance costs but is in keeping with the company’s sustainability objectives.
“We chose Goodlight based on recommendation and the service they have provided from start to finish has been outstanding,” says, Ian Dawkins, managing director at Hi-Speed. “The lights were only installed in April and cost reductions on monthly energy bills are currently predicted at 18%. We are delighted with the results and the savings we’ve already started to see. The most obvious impact, however, is in the light quality and the vast improvement in colour temperature. Our employees are enjoying the cleaner, brighter, whiter light with no visible flickering. Also, the LED lights generate much less heat which is hugely beneficial to us as we hold some heat sensitive stock.
“The Goodlight LED lights were very easy to install and we were able to use the existing fittings which achieved a higher cost saving. Their long life and virtually maintenance-free operation made it an easy choice for us. We have been very impressed with the Goodlight team and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them in the future,” he adds.
Hi-Speed selected 1200 x 600mm Goodlight Eco LED ceiling panels for its offices that have been designed to slot into an existing ceiling grid with ease and are the thinnest, most light weight panel on the market, according to the lighting specialist. Goodlight also specified 5ft G5 LED battens for the warehouse which deliver very high levels of light output, offering up to 110 lumens per watt. The G5s are rated to IP65 and provide further protection from dust, ice, heat and corrosion ingress. Both products are guaranteed for five years and rated at 50,000 hours.
