LED lighting delivers a number of advantages over traditional lighting technologies, including enhanced light quality and consistency, and substantial improvements in energy efficiency. The benefits of these can be greater accuracy in the completion of tasks, increased productivity and an overall superior level of employee wellbeing.
Leading global fresh fruit and vegetable producer Wealmoor prides itself on developing trusted partnerships and minimizing its impact on the environment. The values that underpin Wealmoor’s business operations are innovation and sustainability. When choosing to upgrade their lighting system, LED technology was selected due to the alignment between its benefits and the core values of Wealmoor.
The Wealmoor site in Greenford, Middlesex houses the company head office and a state-of-the-art packing and logistics operations for fresh food. The requirements across the site were varied and ranged from lighting for offices and meeting rooms, where people would spend prolonged periods of time, to reception areas and access points where people would spend little time. The overriding objective was to improve the internal lighting across the site while maximising the energy saving.
The team from Challenger specified a range of LED luminaires suited to the varied environments around the site, ranging from Low Bay fittings in the operational areas to Panels in offices and corridors, incorporating additional emergency fittings where appropriate to ensure compliance with all legislative requirements. These fittings replaced the existing Metal Halide, Compact Fluorescent and Linear Fluorescent fittings.
