Kongs Warehouse : Warehouse / Factory

OVERVIEW

Kongs Warehouse

Reliable light from top to bottom shelf

By retrofitting 49 existing metal halide fittings with the appropriate LED lighting solution, Kongs Distribution Warehouse were able to reduce maintenance costs and bring light levels up to a much more comfortable level for employees. Saving money and increasing safety.

CHALLENGES

Kongs Distribution Warehouse was originally lit using 400w Probe Start Metal Halide Lamps and suffered continued maintenance due to lamp outages. The lamps also had high lumen depreciation and after only 6000 hours had a 32% reduced light output. Kongs Warehouse has a 10m ceiling height, which posed a significant accessibility burden for the in-house maintenance operator regarding lamp maintenance. This 10m mounting height further emphasised the light depreciation levels and reduced light quality of the existing MH lamps.

SOLUTIONS

The chosen LED solution needed to ensure long life, and also maintain the required illumination at ground level and on racking. By investing in the Cree CXB, Kongs have eliminated their maintenance burden – backed by the Cree industry leading 10 Year Warranty. The CXB is a flicker free lighting solution with excellent colour rendering and light distribution. Low lumen depreciation ensures light levels will remain stable for over 16x longer than the original 400w Metal Halide Lamps. Switching from Metal Halide to this LED solution also offered a approximated 54% decrease in energy consumption.
