Megaman puts on a brave face
Megaman’s GU10 AR111 15W and Candle 5W LED lamps have been used to great effect in the Fat Face chain of clothing and accessory stores throughout the UK. This is part of a roll-out programme to replace heat generating 75W halogen lamps and 25W incandescent candles respectively.
With over 200 stores in the UK, Fat Face is one of the leading clothing and accessories retailers on the high street offering clothes for the active lifestyle. Formed in 1988, the company has the motto ‘Life is Out There’.
The refurbishment programme, conducted by Hampshire based Planned Lighting Maintenance Ltd, is part of an on-going energy saving campaign that has been adopted by the retailer. The original lighting, which incorporated halogen lamps, had suffered from regular lamp failure and Planned Lighting were asked to devise a new scheme that would offer energy saving lamps with good colour rendition and a longer lamp life, whilst reducing maintenance costs.
Offering 50,000 hours, Megaman’s AR111 LED lamps offered a direct replacement for the halogen spots situated on the sales floor, providing a perfect illumination to highlight the merchandise. Offering the same light intensity and colour temperature, the AR111’s also provide energy saving of up to 80%.
Following installation of the new Megaman lamps, Fat Face has reported a saving of £3,700 per annum, 45,000kw which equals 23 tonnes of CO2 per store, whilst retaining its bright appearance that is so inviting to its customers.
