LED Carpark lighting upgrade

The facility manager called CESP LED team to make a site survey, which aims to develop an improved lighting solution for their carpark, and also be low maintenance and energy-saving. Car parks were traditionally poorly lit, and maintenance is a problem due to the height of the luminaires, which makes access difficult and costly.


In this case their whole existing lighting comprised 55 unit 400W SON’s mounted on the poles and wall. This arrangement gave poor illumination and spread, and with their lights left on all night the maintenance workload was a problem.

Throughout adopting LED technology this carpark was able to illuminate double the original car park area with a much more even light s. Further benefits of their switching to LED were that the light colour is much more representative of daylight, being 5700K in temperature, and so the overall lighting effect had been totally transformed.


In addition, the long life of LED means that maintenance is no longer a factor. The real added bonus to the customer though is that their total upgrade power consumption was actually halved although the illuminated area has doubled.
