The Khalsa Academies Trust supports local communities to help establish and run Sikh Schools. The Khalsa Academy in Wolverhampton (TKAW) has just built a new secondary school and Electrical Contractors Air Cool Engineering Midlands Ltd, installed a host of LED energy efficient luminaires from Luceco.
LuxPanel was used for a variety of classroom applications, providing a cost effective and energy saving lighting solution. Glare control and adequate illuminance on the vertical combined with good uniformity needs to be considered when lighting schools, in particular, in rooms that are multi-functional. High efficiency LuxPanels from Luceco provide the ideal solution and have a completely frameless appearance in the ceiling plane and a market leading efficacy of 152 Llm/cW.
Other luminaires used throughout TKAW included Epsilon. Luceco has recently launched a new variant of the popular Epsilon luminaire, an LED direct / indirect UGR19 compliant recessed fitting designed to optimise lighting performance and maximise luminaire spacing. Epsilon enjoys an improved efficacy of 140 Llm/cW due to a new micro prism optic. The luminaire is available in standard, dimmable, emergency dimmable, emergency self-test, DALI emergency dimmable and LiteIP.
Architecturally pleasing in appearance, the new Epsilon also remains within the spirit of The Society of Light & Lighting’s LG 7 requirements. Epsilon offers up to 50,000 hours working life with no maintenance or re-lamping requirement and is the perfect replacement for traditional fluorescent lamped fittings in commercial and educational environments.
The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton welcomes learners from all backgrounds. This principle and values ensure that their young people can make a positive contribution to multi-cultural Britain. The Trust also takes responsibility for financial and resource management that delivers efficiency and effectiveness. A new fit for purpose, environmentally friendly facility with cost effective, energy saving LED lighting from Luceco contributes to this overall ethos.
