Longlevens Church Hall Lighting – Gloucester
Total Lighting & Controls have recently upgraded the lighting at Longlevens church hall in Gloucester. The old fluorescent lighting had become unreliable and the quality of the light was poor and not particularly bright. The solution to the problem was to upgrade the lighting to LED, not only to improve on the light levels and light quality, but to save on energy costs and maintenance bills.

After a site survey was undertaken and a lighting design carried out, the recommendation from Total Lighting & Controls was to replace the old fluorescent lighting with the new LED batten, which has an expected lifetime of 50,000 hours and comes complete with a 5 year warranty.

The savings on the electricity bills have been estimated at 58% and these have savings have qualified the church for a 35% grant against the cost of the project. Not only has Total Lighting & Controls improved light levels and saved money on electricity bills, but sourced grant money for the church.

St Edward’s Hall Lighting
Total Lighting & Controls recently upgraded the lighting at St Edward’s Hall in Stow on the Wold in the Cotswolds. The existing four suspended twin 100 Watt T12 fluorescent lights were inefficient and due to lamp failures were expensive to maintain. The light levels were also poor and did not illuminate the floor and walls adequately, which meant that the numerous old paintings on the walls were difficult to see.
The solution from Total Lighting & Controls was to replace the existing fluorescent lighting with the Infinitas direct / indirect LED module. Each module being 3360mm in length, producing 99 Watts electrical output and 14,208 lumens light output. Light levels at floor level were improved and with the indirect lighting onto the ceiling the overall ambience of the room is far more pleasing. The 4000K colour temperature and RA 80 of the Infinitas LED has also improved the colour reproduction of the pictures on the wall. Movement sensors have also been installed to allow dimming for certain functions, and turns lights off automatically if the room in unoccupied.
The existing electrical load of 944 Watts has been reduced to 428 Watts, and with the addition of movement sensors and dimming savings of 68% on electricity bills can be expected. A life expectancy in excess of 51,000 hours of the Infinitas will also eliminate expensive maintenance costs.
Another perfect lighting solution for the environment has been provided by Total Lighting & Controls

Northleach Primary School
Northleach Primary School in Gloucestershire had an issue with one of the high bay lights in the school hall. Total Lighting & Controls were asked to repair the failed light fitting, which was mounted at six metres, but fortunately a hydraulic lux lift had been installed, allowing the light fitting to be lowered to ground level for inspection. Upon inspection it was determined that the existing light fitting was beyond repair, so the solution was to replace it with the DISK LED High Bay 100 Watt luminaire. Producing 15,000 lumens it was the perfect replacement for the failed light fitting, not only producing a similar light level, but reducing energy costs and eliminating future maintenance.

Mickleton School – Hall Lighting Upgrade
Mickleton School in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire invited Total Lighting & Controls to quote for the upgrade of the hall lighting, and at the same time rewire the lighting system. The existing T5 fluorescent lighting was failing, causing a high maintenance cost as the lighting was mounted at 6.5 metres above the floor level. Added to this the emergency lighting would not operate which was a health and safety issue. The recommendation was to replace the fluorescent lighting with the Graduate LED luminaire to improve light levels, reduce running costs, eliminate costly repair bills and provide adequate emergency lighting.
The electrical load of the existing fluorescent lighting was 1.4 KiloWatts, which was reduced to 720 Watts with the Graduate LED, saving 48% on running costs. Light levels were increased from just over 150 lux average illuminance to 318 lux with a maximum of over 400 lux. The emergency lighting is now fully operable as the rewire was undertaken, and there are no more expensive maintenance bills due to the long lifetime of the Graduate LED lighting.
The installation was undertaken during the Christmas break so as not to interrupt the school term. The comments from the staff on their return to school was the hall is now much brighter and easier to teach in

Do you have poor display lighting in your shop or gallery?
Total Lighting & Controls recently replaced the low voltage display lighting at St Edward’s Hall in the centre of Stow-in-the-Wold in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire. Due to the lighting being installed above the stairway at a height of four metres it was difficult and expensive to maintain, and because of it’s age it was continually failing. The recommendation was to replace the low voltage lighting track with mains voltage, and replace the 50 watt halogen spotlights with highly efficient 13 watt AZUMA LED spotlights. The AZUMA LED spotlights have a life expectancy of over 59,000 hours , so maintenance costs have been almost eliminated. A five year warranty is provided for a complete piece of mind. Savings on energy costs will be 74%, and with a 2,200 lumen light output the illumination on the stairway has  been improved dramatically. The warm light provided also enhances the colours of the pictures on the walls. The Azuma provides the complete lighting solution for this environment. If you own a gallery, or shop, and wish to improve the lighting why not contact Total Lighting & Controls to see what solutions we can offer you?

Funding to help 300 businesses in Gloucestershire install energy efficiency measures
The funding is via the Gloucestershire Local Enterprise Partnership from the European Regional Development Fund.
The grants will contribute a maximum of 35% towards energy saving measures and could be worth £500 to £20,000.
The programme is called Target 2020 – Countdown to a Low Carbon Economy.
This is a great opportunity for businesses to get help towards financing energy saving projects that will help reduce their running costs.
Businesses are contacting us to take part in the programme. So the recommendation is that people contact us earlier rather than later to avoid disappointment.
The funding is open to Small and Medium sized enterprises based in Gloucestershire and the surveys will be starting in April. Businesses are welcome to contact us to register an interest now. The project will be running for three years.

Sci-Mx Nutrition Ltd in Gloucester asked Total Lighting & Controls to replace the existing warehouse lighting with LED luminaires. The current 400 Watt discharge lighting was proving costly to run and with constant failures was expensive to repair considering the lighting was mounted at 9 metres high. Light levels of 70 lux were also very low due to lights not working.
The solution was to replace the discharge lighting with the Zapphira 60 watt linear LED luminaire providing 9,000 lumens light output, and with a narrow 60 degree lens is ideal for illuminating the aisles. A 90 degree lens was used for the open circulation and packing areas.
The existing 400W discharge lights had a total electrical load of 20.77KW costing approximately £6,499.00 per annum to run based on 9 hours a day, 5 days a week at 12p/KWh. Installing Zapphira 60Watt LED provides a total electrical load of 3.02KW, costing approximately £931.00 per annum to run. Therefore savings have been estimated at £5,568.00 per annum, equating to 25.08t of CO2. Light levels were almost trebled achieving close to 200 lux.

Lighting Upgrade
Food growers who supply fresh produce to the major supermarkets, wholesale and catering outlets in the UK asked Total Lighting & Controls to design and supply an LED lighting upgrade for their pack house.
The solution was to replace the existing twenty 250 Watt metal halide light fittings with the Lando 24000 lumen LED luminaire on a one for one basis. The existing lighting electrical load was halved, therefore reducing the electrical cost by 50%.
The main purpose of the upgrade was not only to reduce running cost, but to improve light levels, which increased from 200 lux to over 500 lux average illuminance. Also with a colour temperature of 4000K and a CRI 80 colour rendition was improved significantly.
Lando LED comes complete with an expected lifetime in excess of 70,000 hours and a 5 year Tridonic / Philips system warranty, eliminating maintenance costs.
