“My team and I are very pleased with the quality and the design of the light fittings and I would be happy to recommend NET LED Lighting to other contractors within the industry.”
The Thomas Lord Audley School is a high performing 11-16 secondary school for 800 pupils. Among the school’s extensive facilities is a multi-purpose Sports Hall, which needed a complete overhaul of its existing lighting system.
An initial verification from the school’s maintenance team found that the existing lighting was under-performing, with only 50% of fittings operational. In addition, the existing lighting was becoming too costly to maintain as a scaffold tower was required to reach the fluorescent T8 Non-Corrosives mounted at 6.4m.
The school appointed TJ Evers Building Contractors to lead the lighting refurbishment. After researching various LED lighting suppliers, the contractor decided to work with NET LED, based on the excellent energy savings and 5 year guarantee offered with NET LED products, allowing the contractor to go ahead with the project in confidence.
To improve lighting levels and reduce energy and maintenance costs, the original fluorescent fittings were replaced with 150W LED High Bays. With a 90° focused beam angle, the High Bays offer high lux levels when mounted at heights between 6 and 12m, making them ideal for lighting gym and sports hall facilities.
Boasting 50,000 hours life, these reliable and robust fittings offer significant savings in maintenance time and costs.
Following the installation, the contractor and customer noticed a vast improvement in light levels and colour rendering.
On base calculations, the contractor has estimated that the school will receive a payback on the purchase of the fittings through energy saving costs in just 3 years.
Commenting on the installation, Electrical Manager at TJ Evers Tristan Luckman said, “My team and I are very pleased with the quality and the design of the light fittings and I would be happy to recommend NET LED Lighting to other contractors within the industry.”
