ROI: 3 years
Raising the ceiling of the Western Sydney manufacturer's aluminium powdercoating workshop to 12m to fit new state of the art machinery was the perfect time to upgrade from 400W metal halide to enLighten's Tauro Blu LED high bay luminaire.
With additional cabling for new areas added to the project scope, enLighten Australia was able to meet the client's specific demands for lighting levels that exceeded Australian Standards in areas requiring detailed quality assurance.
A detailed project financial analysis was prepared by enLighten Australia and incorporated electricity & maintenance savings over 10 years.

A selection of lensing was installed according to the space requirements.
Within warehouse 1 the powdercoating line requirements were for 400 lux at a 1.2m workplane, which was well above the 250 lux requirements under Australian standards.
The multi-warehouse project also had a vast difference in ceiling & light hanging heights, which were addressed through optical lensing. Narrow beamed 40 degree lenses were used in areas of ceiling heights over 12m, with broader 60 & 120 degree lenses used via a variety of combinations for areas with ceiling heights of under 4m to 10m.
A PE sensor system was installed in 2 of the 4 warehouses, which allowed for the Tauro Blu lights to switch off automatically on detection of the lux level set point of 1000 lux at 1m. On average the lights achieved additional energy savings by being switched for 5 hours per day.
