Our established luminaire re-design team provide our customers with a complete bespoke lighting solution that can range from a single large scale luminaire requiring modernisation to 1000's of units for some of the largest clothes and food outlets within the UK and Europe.
Our re-engineering works have proven highly beneficial to many companies wishing to upgrade from fluorescent to LED in the most efficient and cost effective manner. This service gives our customers the opion to retain existing fittings and benefit from significant saving including purchase of fitting, re decorating and of course the obvious saving of LED consumption and maintenance.
Coco Lighting are registered with the UK’s Industry Committee for Emergency Lighting (ICEL) ICEL 1004. This ensures that our conversions are fully compliant in line with best practice and tests to ICEL document 1004:2013 This sets out the requirements for the conversion of luminaires to emergency operation and provides a clear understanding of the legal obligations
On average UK businesses use up to 35% of their electricity consumption just on lighting, so the benefits of converting your existing lighting to LED can help companies cut their fixed costs dramatically. Lighting bills can be reduced by up to 90% and a quick payback of the initial investment can be achieved thanks to the great energy efficiency of LED lighting.
Comparisons of energy consumption between traditional fluorescent and LED emergency lighting generally have LED lighting coming out on top. Normally LED luminaires will use less than half the energy and fewer luminaires will be required, as controlling where the light goes is easier. A comparison of an emergency lighting scheme using 200 x 8W fluorescent self-contained luminaires showed that only 130 LED self-contained luminaires would be sufficient in achieving the same result using less than a third of the energy usage of the old scheme.
Your existing mains luminaires, such as T5 fittings would be re-engineered into your emergency luminaires by the addition of an emergency LED source rather than using the existing T5 lamps as the emergency lighting source. Our re-engineering process is handled correctly by following the ICEL 1004 guide.
Furthermore, you won’t have to worry about replacing lamps for a very long time because LED lamps have a longer lifespan and are more resistant to vibrations and shocks, which makes them more durable and difficult to break.
LEDs are extremely durable and assembled with sturdy components that are highly rugged and can withstand even the roughest of conditions.
With LED lights being resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts, they make great choice for factories and businesses like construction and manufacturing sites with the rough conditions such as exposure to adverse weather, even external vandalism and traffic related public exposure.
Taking care of the environment is a responsibility that every company needs to be accountable for. Most of us are already aware of environmentally friendly processes such as recycling to minimise the amount of waste we produce and reduce our carbon footprint. However, a lot of people are unaware of new and upcoming technologies that we can use to help reduce carbon emissions.
LED lights contain no toxic elements. Most offices currently use fluorescent strip lights which contain noxious chemicals such as mercury. This will contaminate the environment when disposed of in landfill waste. Disposal has to be arranged through a registered waste carrier so switching to LED avoids the cost and time implications required for compliant disposal – and helps to protect the environment from further toxic waste.
LEDs have a better quality of light distribution and focus light in one direction as opposed to other types of lighting which waste energy by emitting light in all directions, often illuminating areas where light isn’t required (such as the ceiling). This means that less LED lights are needed to achieve the same level of brightness given off by fluorescents and incandescent lights. Fewer lights will reduce energy consumption and will therefore be a benefit to the environment.
A longer life span means lower carbon emissions. LED Lights last up to six times longer than other types of lights, reducing the requirement for frequent replacements. This results in using fewer lights and hence fewer resources are needed for manufacturing processes, packaging materials and transportation.
