Philips GentleSpace LED luminaires were selected to replace the sodium lighting in the production and warehousing areas, using bespoke high-output versions in the factory and special ‘high rack’ optics in the warehousing area. In the inspection area on the mezzanine, 2 x 58W fluorescent T8 fittings have been replaced with Pacific LED surface-mounted LED luminaires.
Kitchen LED fittings have been installed beneath the mezzanine. Upgrading to LED lighting has also enabled more precise control of the lighting than was possible with the sodium light sources. The lighting is now divided into seven zones, instead of the previous three, under the control of a Philips Dynalite lighting management system.
To minimise energy consumption the system uses daylight linking to dim the lighting in relation to the levels of daylight entering through rooflights. It is also linked to occupancy sensors in the warehouse area to dim the lighting in unoccupied aisles.
