LED lighting is perfectly suited to emergency lighting applications – it is low maintenance, extremely reliable, provides optimum light levels and can be adapted to suit any environment.
LED specialist Earlsmann recently provided new emergency lighting for the swimming pool area at Edmonton Leisure Centre in north-east London. The new LED system boosts safety by providing dependable emergency provision while saving on maintenance and operation costs.
Seeking a reliable, cost-effective solution for emergency lighting?
Approved Electrical Contracts Limited contacted Earlsmann in relation to their client, Edmonton Leisure Centre. During their investigations of the emergency lighting provision across the swimming pool area, Approved Electrical discovered that the battery and control module for the old emergency lighting system had failed and required replacement. The cost to replace the battery alone was over £6,000. Approved Electrical asked Earlsmann if it could devise a more cost-effective solution for replacing and upgrading the entire system, which comprised eleven 70W metal halide floodlights.
Earlsmann – experienced in meeting emergency lighting requirements using LEDs
BS5266 requires swimming pools to have emergency lighting that provides a minimum of five lux across the entire area. Earlsmann recognised that this could not be achieved by simply installing new lights, as LED beam patterns differ from those of traditional metal halide asymmetric floodlights. The company’s in-house design team undertook Relux modelling to ensure its proposals would achieve the correct light levels.
Creating bespoke lighting to optimise performance and provide best value
Following the Relux process, Earlsmann designed and manufactured a bespoke 20W LED emergency floodlight with an asymmetric beam. This allowed existing mounting points to be re-used, simplifying the installation process. The slim, low-energy LED floodlight units were used as the light source for a proprietary central UPS battery system, providing the correct light level for a total payload of 220W (compared with the original 900W). This reduced the number of batteries required, making it more cost-effective to replace the entire system rather than repair the old. Reducing the number of batteries has also cut the cost of ongoing maintenance.
