The Solution

Having tested a number of different fittings for build quality and illumination levels, we were able to source a suitable replacement LED luminaire. Not only was the unit similar to the original in size and design, but the new unit offered some distinct advantages:

  1. Removed the requirement for replacement fluorescent tubes – LEDs are designed to last the life of the fitting (cost saving #1)
  2. LEDs consume less energy (cost saving #2)
  3. Fitting runs at a lower temperature, ensuring that it lasts longer (cost saving #3)

And the icing on the cake, was that the new fitting cost no more than the original fluorescent luminaire – it was a β€˜win’ whichever way you looked at it!
