LED lighting upgrades in the UK

LED Lighting Upgrades for Commercial, Retail and Industrial Facilities across the UK

Upgrading your businesses old fluorescent or halogen lighting to LED Lighting technology can offer REAL costs savings on your yearly energy bills whilst offering lower maintenance costs and a more inviting working environment that is also eco friendly.

Older lighting solutions that use high wattage bulbs can be replaced with similar or identical LED lighting fixtures that provide the same light output but for a fraction of the energy watts. In fact, a typical 50W halogen bulb can be replaced by a 5W LED light yet achieves the exact same lighting output.  Energy savings of 65% or more can be achieved simply by switching from old fluorescent lighting in your office or retail space.  And this saving can be further enhanced with additional lighting features such as occupancy motion sensors.

Why LEDs?

LED Lights are an affordable and simple way of reducing energy bills for a business.  They are up to 90% more energy efficient than conventional lighting systems. LED lights can last up to 16 times as long as a halogen equivalent and unlike other lighting solutions, LEDs do not simply stop working when they reach the end of their life.  Instead, after around 50,000 hours, they will gradually become dimmer before needing to be replaced. This compared to a halogen bulb with has only an average 3,000 hours life expectancy while Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) have around 10,000 hours of light per lamp. This means that on top of annual energy savings, your business can save money on maintenance and replacement light bulbs as well.

Low Maintenance Costs

Traditional lighting solutions require a large amount of maintenance due to unexpected breakage and a short lifecycle. LED Lighting can cut your businesses maintenance costs considerably (the larger your lighting needs, the greater a cost saving can be achieved). The saving of replacement bulbs is further enhanced in difficult access locations such as a commercial warehouse where replacing bulbs can be scheduled in as part of an electrical maintenance package rather than be dealt with as random call out work.

Eco-friendly Solution

LED lighting is a far more environmentally friendly lighting solution than existing alternatives.  The higher efficiency of an LED light means that less energy is wasted as heat.  In fact, LED lighting hardly emits any heat at all.  In comparison, a Compact Fluorescent Lamps filament looses up to 90% of its energy as lost heat.


Halogen light bulbs and CFLs are made with a glass enclosure which can easily break. The safety hazard of loose broken glass is only one safety concern.  The high temperatures of halogen and CFL lighting also presents a fire risk in environments such as industrial or commercial warehouses that are filled with flammable material. LED lighting in comparison is constructed in a polycarbonate diffuser which is safer and less prone to damage and therefore far safer.

A more welcoming environment

The increased lighting benefits of LEDs can have multiple ‘knock on’ effects.  A brighter, well lit car park can provide a safer environment. A well lit warehouse of factory can decrease accidents.  A well lit store can be both inviting to customers and a deterrent against thieves. And studies have shown that well lit office environments can increase worker productivity.
