To meet new BMW requirements, the old light fittings in the body shop area needed to be replaced. With a light output of 600lm, the old fittings were inefficient and unable to deliver the brightness needed.
Additionally, a new lighting solution was needed in the car dealership’s showroom that would comply with Building Regulations B2. The regulations require that, where the lighting forms part of the internal ceiling lining of the building, it must restrict the spread of fire over its surfaces. To ensure compliance, Panel Lights with flammability-rated diffusers were required.
A diffuser with no flammability rating can melt with burning plastic in the event of a fire, causing combustion on surfaces and risking the safety of the occupants in a building. It was therefore essential to find a lighting solution that would ensure the safety of customers and staff.
The NET LED Regional Sales Manager visited the car dealership to survey the premises and understand their specific lighting requirements. Following this, the NET LED Technical Team were able to provide lighting designs and savings calculations to find the optimum solution in terms of light quality, compliance and efficiency.
