We have recently completed another LED lighting project where the client has had a change of use for part of one of its storage facilities.
Due to product demand, our client has had the need to increase its storage capacity to compensate for additional stock and components. As part of the proposal for increasing the storage space, the existing lighting systems had to be altered to allow for the future installation of a new racking system.
A lighting design was carried out to meet the following criteria set out by the client: Utilise energy efficient LED lighting, illuminate the aisles between the proposed new racking sufficiently, provide adequate Lux levels to comply with current CIBSE guidelines for the multiple uses required the area, incorporate new emergency lighting and retain the existing emergency lighting.
The old lighting system comprised of numerous 400w SON style fittings which were not very energy efficient and were not positioned/suitable for the proposed changes of the area.
New high level LED lighting was installed at approximately 8m from the finished floor level which would allow adequate clearance for the proposed new forklifts/reach trucks.
A new high level containment system was installed to allow for new wiring and suspension of the new LED lights. The new wiring was installed to allow for ease of future maintenance and ease of possible future alterations.
Once the new LED lighting was installed the redundant lighting system and wiring was removed and terminated
