The Crescent is the largest Shopping Centre in Limerick and is illuminated with VeeLites Supralite Car Park Luminaires. These Car Park Lights were designed specifically for Car Park lighting and 1 Luminaire will typically illuminate an area of 50M x 50m. The Supralite was typically offered with HPS or Metal Halide Lamps (Bulbs), which have a life of 30,000 hours and 40,000 hours respectively (for long life versions). VeeLite also manufactures 2 replacement LED Luminaires which provides the same light levels and offers typically 50% energy savings.
For Car park Lighting projects, the Supralite provides a very competitive initial project cost. It is a particularly efficient solution on Projects which have lower operating hours, for example where Lights are switched off at 9pm or mid night for example. In this situation, the operating/electricity costs of each light are typically €50 per year* with a 9pm Switch off. Instead of having to replace the entire Luminaire every 50,000 hours (typical for most LED Products), a simple Lamp (Bulb) replacement is all thats required which is much easier and cheaper. The Luminaire can then continue for another 30,000 or 40,000 hours, or 20 -30 years. Because of these features, the Supralite is ideal for Budget Car park lighting.
Another Project shown below is Booterstown Railway Station in Dublin. Irish Rail have many Car Parks illuminated with both the Supralite fitting and the newer SupraLED fitting. Many of these Projects were installed 20 or even 30 years ago, and because of VeeLites solid construction and high efficiency Products, Irish Rail do not see the need to upgrade immediately.
