The workshop lighting scheme at the FAS Training Facility in Waterford uses T5 Fluorescent Highbay lighting.
Workshop lighting levels would usually deteriorate because of dust/ dirt in the atmosphere. These Racklyters have dust-tight optics to prevent this loss of light. At the same time, they have vented gear sections to ensure the electronic gear remains cold and to achieve longer component life.
Unlike traditional (T8) Fluorescents, these Luminaires can punch more light downwards and with no flicker, they are better for eyesight and cause less fatigue and eye strain. Lamp life is an average of 20,000 hours, so maintenance/relamping is also reduced.
The Racklyter Luminaire used is available with 4 x 50w (or 54w) T5 lamps, or alternatively with 6 x 50w (or 54w) lamps and is suitable for a wide range of industrial and commercial lighting projects. The Optics for this scheme were wide beam. Typically, the Racklyter is used in Warehouse Aisles at heights from 8m to 20m with narrow beam optics.
In Warehouse lighting schemes, quick payback can be achieved by the use of occupancy sensors to switch the lights off when the area is vacant. Individual Warehouse Aisles tend to be vacant most of the time. These Sensors can be built into each Luminaire to simplify installation. A second option is to link all Luminaires to a remote Sensor.
The external of this Training Facility is also shown on this website. The Specifiers for both schemes were Consulting Engineers.

Please send details or drawing by email. There is no charge or obligation for suitable Projects.
We will calculate the number of light fittings required and advise light levels. We will advise where they should be located and the cost of the Equipment. Other lighting may need to be added for landscaped areas or to add decorative architectural effect.
