Despite the significant advances in renewables, we all realise that for the next 25 years or so the world will still be heavily dependent on fossil fuels. Even by 2040, 44% of the world’s energy requirements will still be met by oil and gas products. There is therefor, a clear mandate for the reduction and more efficient use of energy. The recent rapid advances in LED technologies have contributed greatly to that mandate as lighting forms a major part of our energy burden. LED can reduce energy costs for lighting by more than 50% on a straight fixture for fixture replacement however, with careful control and design so much more can be realised. Traditional technologies like Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium evolved because of their ability to produce large lumen outputs and were quickly employed in applications requiring those levels such as street and wide area flood lights. Many years of good service have been provided by these units however, relatively speaking, by today’s standards they are wasteful, not only in their energy consumption but also in their ability to efficiently distribute the generated light. The advent of high powered LED’s saw an instant flooding of the luminaire market with hastily designed, look-alike, fixtures intended as a straight drop-in replacement for the current outdated technologies. All things being equal these units did indeed provide a significant drop in energy consumption but did nothing in terms of lumen wastage.
After careful consideration of the potential that could be realised from LED we, as a company, embarked on a mission to design and manufacture a luminaire that could embrace all the advantages that LED has to offer. Three years of development culminated in the release of our modular range of luminaires that deliver on that goal without compromise. Our aim is to not just replace your outdated luminaires but to assess your requirement and provide you with an intelligent solution taking into account all of the benefits that LED can bring to your energy bottom line.
We achieve this by employing a totally modular design that can be exactly tailored to specific applications with minimal waste. With the capability to control light output and distribution, variable power/time profiles, size and distribution of modules, as well as providing unequalled redundancy and commonality of components across our range, we can deliver total burden savings up to 80% and possibly more depending on the application.
We have also gone one step further by ensuring the design is “future proofed” providing customers with the capability to take full advantage of forthcoming advances in LED efficiencies. Unlike other manufacturers we don’t make this statement lightly, there are no hidden or understated labour penalties only a simple and cost effective method for future upgrade that is easier to accomplish than a lamp change on existing technologies.

Replacement of inefficient lighting technologies is inevitable so with that in mind we have taken the view “why not value add where possible”. Visit the section on our innovative HAAL product to see how we have incorporated accident prevention and lifesaving qualities into our products.
