Car Park Lighting :- What can be done to save money in car parks?

There are quite a lot of car parks in every town these days, some are multi storey and some are open plan but they all have one thing in common, they all have car park lighting and need to be lit in some form or another.

Lighting can be one of the largest expenses on management companies and trying to find the most cost effective lighting solution for managing these expenses is no easy task.

This is where Adattsi can help. We are fortunate to have a wide variety of experience in this area and have access to a number of technologies which will dramatically reduce the energy consumption in car park areas. Some of the areas we can provide assistance are

  • Induction lighting
  • T5 Lighting
  • Lighting Controls
  • Emergency Lighting
  • Retrofit Lighting

Depending on what has been installed before and budgetary requirements we have a solution for virtually every application you will come across. If you have existing fixtures and they are suitable, perhaps a retrofit would be the most suitable option. We have seen in the past huge energy savings from retrofit applications, whether it is metal halide/ sodium to Induction or old outdated T8 Fluorescent lighting to Induction lighting, new T5 fluorescent lighting, T5 adapters or intelligent lighting controls to existing systems, there is a solution for every situation and every budget all of which i might add with expected results of up to and over 50% savings on lighting.

When you consider the majority of the load of car parks is primarily lighting there is no question this is the place to dramatically cut the costs in these areas. While fluorescent lighting units like T5 corrosion proof fixtures can seem like a very cost effective situation and they are there are other solutions such as induction lighting which may offer a long term benefit such as maintenance free operation over lifetime, low lumen depreciation and life expectancies in excess of 100,000 hours.

Energy Efficient Lighting Fixtures :- Importers and Distributors

This multi functional fixture has a variety of uses and applications including: Low Bay/High Bay Warehousing Lighting, Low Profile High Bay Lighting, Recessed mounted. Flexibility in design as well as bespoke manufacturing capabilities make Adattsi a strong contender for the energy efficient lighting specification market.


What is Induction Lighting

There are no issues with induction in this respect as the inducting coils are on the external of the glass membrane and induce a magnetic field to create a plasma, not an electric arc, as in fluorescent tube technology. The lamps themselves have a large surface area of light producing surface, yet are compact in construction, this is advantageous because we have a high lumen output from a rather small fixed light source.


Induction High Bay Lighting Fixture

Each fixture comes with a tempered glass lens as standard and has an option of a polycarbonate frenzel lens cover where required. The reflector is highly polished and is designed specifically for the induction lamp to give optimum output. The wattage range is 80 - 200 Watts and comes with standard E40 adapter for ease of installation. The LVD 0361-1 high bay fixture is constructed from aluminium.


Indus Low Profile High Bay Family

With long life and low lumen depreciation the Indus is a clear leader in the Energy Efficient Lighting market and this remarkable fixture has the versatility to be a Low Bay or High Bay, Recessed, Chain, Unistrut or surface mount, with optional Occupancy Sensors.


Garage Lighting Fixtures : Induction lighting

Although not every situation is viable or warrants induction technology, it can be the most cost effective solution over time and with Adattsi bringing the prices of induction lamps down to earth, there is now no better time to change over to Induction.


Outdoor Motion Sensors

Primarily designed for outdoor lighting and security lighting situations, the BMW PIR outdoor sensor can be used for indoor lighitng applications very successfully because of the visually effective design of the unit and its practical functionality. Programming is quick and easy with the optional remote control so you don't need the ladder to change any of the settings.


Induction Flood Lights

While this flood light is more expensive than sodium, metal halide or fluorescent lighting systems it is easily much less expensive than current LED technology and will produce a better luminance curve, last longer and will be the most cost effective solution for years to come.
