NEW CLEANROOM LUMINAIRE ACHIEVES OVER 142 LL/CW
Q: 142 LL/CW? What does that mean?
A: LL/CW is how we measure the efficiency of the luminaire. It stands for Luminaire Lumens per Circuit Watt.
Q: How does this compare to traditional fluorescent type luminaires?
A: A typical fluorescent cleanroom luminaire is around 40 LL/CW.
Q: So, how much energy do we save?
A: It will reduce your energy consumption by over 70%.
Q: How much money will this save me?
A: Each luminaire will save you over £85.00 each year.
Q: Will it reduce maintenance costs?
A: Yes, you no longer have to replace the tubes, saving at least £25.00 per luminaire over 5 years.
Q: Does that mean that each luminaire saves us over £90.00 every year?
A: Correct, and in addition to this you benefit from less heat gains and of course you reduce your carbon footprint.
Q: But LED luminaires are more expensive. How long does it take for energy savings to payback this extra cost?
A: Typically less than 12 months, then you continue to save a further £360.00 over the remaining 4 years.
Q: Wow, that’s really impressive!
A: Yes, at 142 LL/CW the savings are really substantial. In fact, we no longer consider it commercially viable to install fluorescent luminaires.
