enLighten Australia’s Victorian Sales Executive, George Tzoutzidis, assisted with a site audit and product specification for the lighting levels to meet AS / NZS 1680 & Building Code compliance requirements.
In the fire stairs, a combination of standard & emergency 12 chip Chamaeleon lights were installed. enLighten's award winning Australian designed Chamaeleon light operates on a full light output of consumption of 32W, which drops to 8W in standby mode when no movement is detected in the area via the integrated microwave motion sensor. For low use areas such as fire stairs, the energy savings are significant, as the average rate energy consumption over 24 hours is under 10w.
In the undercover carpark for 38 spaces, a combination of permanently on 14 chip standard and emergency chamaeleon lights were specified for car park driveway areas.
For the loading dock entry, loading bays and ramp areas, replacement of existing light failures were proving particularly expensive due to the access difficulty. A combination of 12 and 14 chip permanently on chamaeleon lights were specified for these areas.
The permanently on Chamaeleon lights do not have a microwave motion sensor or a standby light output, with the occupancy sensor models installed over parking bays.
The installation contractor was Silk Electrical.
