Paperline, a supplier of disposable hygiene products, is seeing noticeable savings in energy consumption after installing high performance, energy efficient LED lighting from awardwinning LED lighting brand, Goodlight, in its warehouse and offices in Bristol, replacing outdated fluorescent lighting. Martin Peters, Warehouse and Logistics Manager at Paperline commented:
“We were keen to switch to LED lighting, not only because of the substantial reduction in energy costs but also the added health and safety benefits a more vibrant lighting structure would bring, particularly in a warehouse environment, making it a safer place to work and significantly improving working conditions. We chose Goodlight LED lighting because of the quality of the light, long life span and significantly reduced maintenance costs.”
Goodlight supplied Paperline with GX1 LED Low Bays as direct replacements for the 240W metal halide lights in the warehouse and G5 LED Battens to replace the outdated fluorescent tubes in its offices. Both luminaires are IP65 rated, have demonstrated energy savings of up to 75% and provide optimum light output, offering an impressive 110 lumens per watt.
Martin Peters said: “The new LED lighting has certainly generated a positive reaction from not only the staff but customers and visitors too. The light is evenly spread and illuminates all the areas previously in shadow. As soon as the first Goodlight LED luminaire was installed the difference was immediate.”
Goodlight’s LED lighting technology offers more efficient light at lower cost and is virtually maintenance free. The LED lamps and luminaires reach full brightness instantly and are free of the migraine-inducing flicker of traditional tube lights. The lamps have a lifespan of 50,000 hours and come with a 5 year guarantee.
Martin Peters concluded, “We have started to see some really impressive energy savings. Calculations show that over a six month comparable time period, the total Kilowatt hours before LED lighting were 60,577.1kwh with a consumption cost of £7,455.25 but after the installation of Goodlight LED lighting, this was reduced to 43,641.6kwh and a consumption cost of just £5,260.85, providing direct energy savings of 68%.”
