UK base car manufacturing Highly Commended Lighting Project of the Year

The ongoing benefits of LED lighting in terms of cost of ownership and overall performance were critical factors taken in to consideration when the UK’s largest manufacturer of automobiles proposed to upgrade the lighting system in their paint shop and paint mix areas.

They now enjoy vastly improved levels of light with a higher CRI as well as significant energy savings of over 45% compared to the previous installation. In addition to this, maintenance costs have been vastly reduced as a result of using Petrel 7 series LED products which have industry leading performance in terms of product life with the driver units and LED arrays rated at 50,000 hours life.
