LED lights are extremely long-lasting
We help our clients reduce their energy usage so to prevent rising expenditure on their Electricity bills.
We do this by looking at their existing lighting and suggest new layouts by using energy efficient lamps.
We will advise on the best products for your environment and recommend ways for the best installation and maintenance.
We keep things simple, with no technical jargon, so that we put them in the best position to make an informed decision based on their business needs. We will take you through the process explaining everything at each stage.
This doesn’t need to be costly. By offsetting the cost against corporation tax means that for some, this actually has worked out being for free.
This also ensures you are doing your bit for the environment as you are reducing the companies global footprint too.

LED Lighting FAQ's
To put it simply, well-manufactured LED lights are extremely long-lasting and can be left on 24 hours, 7 days a week. This is because, unlike conventional types of light, LEDs produce minimal amounts of heat, which means they are unlikely to overheat or set on fire
It’s the LEDs themselves. LEDs have a characteristic delay when turning them on which may be more than you’re used to from a lifetime of incandescent bulbs. … Replace the LED with the equivalent incandescent (temporarily) and it should go away entirely.
All our LED lights and bulbs are energy saving that are designed to replace incandescent, fluorescent, CFL, metal halide, high pressure sodium and halogen lights in your office, facility or business. They will reduce your energy consumption by at least 50%, and as much as 80%, depending on the light you choose and the light we are replacing. With LEDs lasting up to 100,000 hours, we can also reduce your maintenance on your lighting.
LEDs are comprised of 3 main components: the LED’s (the chip set that produces light), the driver (converts AC to DC) and the heat sink (to keep everything cool). LEDs take DC power from the driver and create light. The heat sink captures heat from the LEDs and the drivers. Although LEDs produce significantly less heat than the light bulbs we have been used to over the past century, the heat they produce must be managed. The better this is done, the longer the life of the product.
LED’s also performs the job of converting electricity to light more efficiently than other light sources, that is why we can replace a 400W metal halide bulb with a LED 100W solution.
There are many benefits. Here is a list of a few:
a. An immediate reduction in your electricity bill.
b. Less heat. LED fixtures are extremely efficient converting electricity into light.
c. LED Bulbs last a very long time, typically 50,000 to 100,000 hours.
d. They are virtually indestructible.
e. They do not contain mercury or other hazardous materials
f. Highly recyclable – with no hazardous parts, you can easily reclaim most of the parts in an environmentally safe way.
It all depends what you are converting. Incandescent to LED, fluorescent to LED, Metal Halide to LED. And this answer will change over time as LED Lights become more efficient and their lumens/watt get better. For now, you can expect at least a savings of 50% when you convert fluorescent lights to LED and 70% or more when you convert Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium to LED.
Yes and No. First, not all LEDs are dimmable. The driver must be designed to allow dimming. Secondly, you must purchase the right type of dimmer. Most retail stores now carry dimmers specifically designed for LED bulbs. Please note, if you purchase a non-dimmable LED bulb and try to dim it, it will cause the bulb to fail and also void the warranty.
Some of our industrial and commercial LED fixtures (high bays, floods, area lighting, retrofits) work with a 0-10V dimming system. 0-10V dimming requires special wiring and a special type of dimmer.
The two most common types of dimming is: 0-10V low voltage and Triac dimming.
They shouldn’t. LED bulbs should not contain mercury or any other hazardous metals or chemicals. CFL’s and fluorescent do contain a very small amount of mercury that needs to be disposed of correctly. So when your LED bulb eventually stops to work, you don’t have to worry about costly or special disposal procedures.
