Litenow have carried out a pilot project in a care home in Reading. The existing 18 Watt fluorescent modular fittings had discoloured diffusers and lamps were frequently failing. In addition, the lighting was left on for 24 hours a day seven days a week and this was having an adverse effect on emergency lighting batteries which were constantly failing.
Litenow installed MHA Lighting’s award winning TiLite 20 LED units and also installed a BEG Luxomat microwave sensor system to activate the fittings when presence was detected and lighting levels were sufficiently low.
Residents, staff and visiting health care professionals have all commented on how much better and brighter the corridors now look. The success of the pilot scheme has led to a roll-out of the LED lighting to all of the corridor areas within the building.
