Goodlight LEDs save energy for logistics company

Hi-Speed Services, a Surrey-based transport and logistics company, has refurbished its offices and warehouse with high performance, energy efficient LED lighting from Goodlight – improving the ambience, saving costs and reducing environmental impact.

As part of its drive to reduce carbon emissions and lower energy use, Hi-Speed has replaced the lighting in its 26,000sq ft Surrey depot and its 22,000sq ft double warehouse in Rugby with more energy efficient technology.

Choosing Goodlight Eco LED Ceiling Panels and IP65 G5 LED Battens, they downsized the number of light fixtures needed due to the increased light output. They now get brighter illumination with fewer lights.

Hi-Speed’s MD, Ian Dawkins, said: “We chose Goodlight based on recommendation and the service they have provided from start to finish has been outstanding. The lights were only installed in April and cost reductions on monthly energy bills are currently predicted at 18%.

“We are delighted with the results and the savings we’ve already started to see. The most obvious impact, however, is in the light quality and the vast improvement in colour temperature.

“Our employees are enjoying the cleaner, brighter, whiter light with no visible flickering. Also, the LED lights generate much less heat which is hugely beneficial to us as we hold some heat sensitive stock.

“The Goodlight LED lights were very easy to install and we were able to use the existing fittings which achieved a higher cost saving. Their long life and virtually maintenance-free operation made it an easy choice for us.”

Hi-Speed selected 1200 x 600mm Goodlight Eco LED Ceiling Panels for its offices that have been designed to slot into an existing ceiling grid with ease and are arguably the thinnest, most lightweight panel on the market.

They also specified 5ft G5 IP65-rated LED Battens for the warehouse which deliver high levels of light, offering up to 110 lumens per watt. The G5s provide further protection from dust, ice, heat and corrosion ingress. Both products are guaranteed for five years and rated at 50,000 hours.
