According to Marie Johnston, Managing Director Johnston Lighting & Accessories two new developments in the lighting product industry are the most exciting to reach the market in years.
Emitting no UV IR radiation, the Spot LED range offers incredible energy and maintenance savings in hospitality applications, adds sparkle to retail environments and reduces energy costs in villas and wherever it is used.
Maximising light output and efficiency, the latest additions incorporate 3 x LUXEON® K2 high-powered LEDs and are available through Johnston Lighting and Design as track-mounted and fixed recessed down lights. A choice of square and round ceiling rings for fixed recessed versions adds a finishing touch to design.
With a lifetime of some 50,000 hours compared with an average 1,500 hours for a regular dicroich spot lights, the Spot LED halves energy consumption, reduces maintenance and emits a better quality light.
Marie Johnston, Managing Director Johnston Lighting & Accessories “Previously unavailable on the market, these Spot LEDs from Philips offer tremendous opportunities to architects and designers to incorporate energy efficient quality lamps and fittings into new developments at reasonable cost. Anyone in the construction phase should be insisting on the use of these attractive and cost effective spots!”
The second product to reach the market is the Luxeon® LED ‘wide area’ or street light enabling never before applications which traditionally used HID and halogen bulbs. LED applications include roadways, paths, warehouse security, parking areas, landmarks, architectural and canopy lights, amongst others. Within solid state lighting systems, they provide better energy consumption and lower maintenance costs compared to traditional light sources. Light weight and therefore easy to maintain, approximate life of the Luxeon® LED ‘wide area’ or street light is 50,000 hours with only a 30% depreciation of light throughout lifespan, compared with 80% depreciation for regular fittings. Precise colour temperatures are also available to enhance aesthetics on buildings, landmarks and monuments.
Use of Luxeon® LEDs reduce light pollution such as glare (the result of excessive contrast between bright and dark areas in the field of view), light trespass (unwanted light falling on non-targeted areas) and sky glow, ensuring light is more managed and projected to the intended target.
