Award winning brand, Goodlight, have announced that Middlesex Aerospace, a leader and strategic manufacturer of aerospace engineering components has made between 50-80% energy savings following the replacement of their old fluorescent lighting with energy efficient, low maintenance LED tube lighting from the Goodlight range. Payback on the installation is on target and expected to be achieved within 18 months. The company adopted Goodlight LED lighting to meet their commitment towards ISO14001.
Installation of the LED lights was carried out over the weekends to limit the impact on production times and reduce disruption for staff. Middlesex Aerospace specified Goodlight GX1 Plus (150W) LED High Bays, G5 LED Battens, T8 LED Tubes and LED Ceiling Panels for their main production factory and inspection area at the 50,000 sq ft manufacturing site in Hampshire, replacing energy hungry fluorescent lighting.
Commenting, John Masey, Senior Buyer at Middlesex Aerospace said: “Once we had made the decision to switch to LED lighting, we chose Goodlight because of their commercial success over the past 11 years. The fact they have full design control of their own manufactured products, technical support in the UK and were one of the first on the market with this LED technology, made us confident we were choosing the right company.“
He continued: “Since the installation, we have been very impressed with the light quality which is evenly distributed over the factory floor. The new Goodlight LED lighting is flicker free, therefore reducing eye strain, has low UV emissions and promotes performance amongst our staff, greatly improving the working environment. In addition, we are making substantial energy savings and have eliminated maintenance costs.”
Goodlight LED lighting technology offers more efficient light at lower cost and reaches full brightness instantly with no warm-up required. The lights are specifically designed for retrofit applications and can be quickly and easily installed into existing fixtures. They provide immediate energy savings and are virtually maintenance free. Goodlight LED products are guaranteed for five years and rated at 50,000 hours.
