Prerequisites and needs?
Heavy industry – how to evenly illuminate a production area?
The main challenge, posted by the customer, was to adjust the design of the production floor to the pre-existing cable layout. We were prohibited from making any changes or adding new montage points. Difficult working
conditions are present in the manufacturing area of the facility – ongoing welding and metalworks actions generate intense amounts of pollution in the form of oil and dust mists. The key task was to illuminate the workspaces, to increase the safety conditions and minimalize potential accidents risks. The fixtures should
provide resistance against dust and negative environmental effects.
We decided to work with LuxonLED mainly due to the good reputation of the company on the lighting market and the high quality of the offered products.
Fixtures dedicated for heavy working conditions
After a detailed analysis and taking into account the services provided by the facility as well as the costs and energy efficiency, we chose Ultima:LED as the optimal solution. They are industrial luminaires with excellent light parameter (efficiency at 140 lm / W). The aluminum housing ensures better heat dissipation, and the special
power system allows operation at elevated temperatures. The construction and materials, used in the manufacturing process of the Ultima:LED, offer protection against dust settling and provide easy cleaning maintenance. The mounting points were left unchanged – we precisely adjusted the new luminaires according
to them. This resulted in greatly reducing the installation costs. After finishing the upgrade at the production section, the customer decided to exchange the fixtures in the office spaces and communication pathways.
What did the Customer gain?
The upgrade lasted two weeks and was carried out during the plants working hours, which
allowed to keep the production process smooth.
Mounting luminaires designed for industry environment ensures suitable light levels in the
presence of dust and oil mists, minimizing risks and stoppages.
The ROI rate was 18 months and allows for savings up to 70% yearly.
Optimally illuminated workspaces, offices and communication pathways increase the security
and comfort of the workplace.
