Product Review

David Ranieri, Riveria Apartments, Chiswick

Future Proofing our apartments

'We went with the Chamaeleon light over lower cost options due to the maintenance features, Our ability to carry spares and have an on-site handyman replace the light fittings or emergency battery without having to disconnect the power was a great tick for us & a future proofing of the lighting system.'

John Brady, Knight Frank

324 Queen St, Brisbane

'The job has been a success. Electrical Services Brisbane has been very good at getting the job completed on time. The lux levels in both the car park and fire stairs have improved greatly.'

Energy savings over a 10 year period: 1,061,040kWh ($134,726)

Stephen Coombs, Country Director of Engineering

Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort

'We were able to upgrade our ageing fluorescent lighting for over 80% energy savings and reduced maintenance within a competitive payback period. I'm particularly impressed with the Chamaeleon light's plug in / plug out feature which allows for a simple, same day swap over without having to isolate the power.'

Chris Mitton, Engineering Manager

Citadines on Bourke Melbourne

'We have been impressed with the power savings and the robustness of the chamaeleon fixtures. The serviceability of the simple battery changeover for emergency versions has eliminated the need to call out an electrician as there is no need to disconnect the power.

Gordon Streight, Chairman of the Strata Committee

‘I am very happy with the results, the energy savings achieved were almost immediately realised and we experienced over 90% reduction in energy consumed in the car park and fire stairs resulting in a building-wide energy reduction of 35%. We took the opportunity with the upgrade to install new LED corridor sensor lights as well, and were delighted we could tailor the light setting to the residents needs.

We have achieved huge energy savings and have greatly reduced our maintenance costs. I highly recommend the Chamaeleon III.”
