Lighting Issues and Solution:

The premises of Innovative Kitchen have recessed and surface mounted light fittings. They have 1.5m/1.2m long T8 fluorescent tube lighting in all their areas. They are using 1200×600 fluorescent tube troffers recessed fitting with 3 tubes and number of twin fluorescent tube surface mounted battens in their office areas. Most of the fluorescent tubes are dying early with quick lumen depreciation. They are consuming not less than 150W including the ballast in the troffer fittings and around 120W in the twin fluorescent 1.5m battens. They have poor lighting efficacy and poor brightness level.

The existing fluorescent tubes in recessed troffers are replaced with our 24W LED tubes having the 4000K colour temperature with high lighting efficacy. The overall consumption is now become 72W for each troffer (compare with 150W). They have also replace their twin fluorescent surface mounted batten with our sleek design 1.5m LED Batten which is 60W (compare with 120W). The whole lighting retrofit project resulted with more than 50% savings. Also, an increase in brightness and a modern look for their offices.
