Energy-efficient, long-lasting, and low maintenance, light emitting diodes (LEDs) are now incorporated into a range of luminaires from Honeywell, and available exclusively through MK Electric, and sister Honeywell company Ex-Or. The range consists of batten, diffused and IP65 rated weather-proof luminaires and is ideal for utility areas such as corridors, walkways, plant rooms, car parks, and warehouses, plus other back of house locations.
Studies show that LEDs have significant advantages over conventional lighting such as incandescent, halogen, gas-discharge and fluorescent. Not only do they consume less electricity, but they also require a lot less maintenance – typically having a 60,000 hour life compared to a fluorescent unit, which can be as low as 10,000 hours, dependent on switching frequency. They are RoHS compliant and mercury free, so will not incur increased disposal costs, under the Hazardous Waste Regulations, at the end of their lifetime.
But most importantly, their ultra-long source life and low energy consumption, combined with their low maintenance, makes them extremely cost-effective in the longer term.
