A leader in business aviation, from aircraft management and maintenance to private jet charter, engaged Flex Lighting Solutions partner, Eco-Green-Energy to conduct a free analysis of the lighting system at two of the customer’s airport hangars. The assessment revealed an opportunity to improve the current lighting levels while reducing energy and maintenance costs.
The award-winning executive aviation company was motivated to upgrade its industrial lighting system with high-quality, wet location rated fixtures that delivered the required light levels. Due to a costly experience in the past, the customer requested a wet location-rated solution to avoid the need to replace the lighting fixtures again in case of fire sprinkler-induced water damage.
The company replaced 88 fluorescent fixtures, one for one, with the Essentials Series 4.0 LED high bay fixtures with wet location-rated option.
The light levels in the hangars increased from 25 to 32-foot candles with an even light distribution, improving visibility and enhancing the atmosphere of the hangars.
Operating 18 hours a day, 6 days a week, the hangar realized a 69% energy savings and $15,495 annual cost savings after the lighting upgrade. The company expects to achieve additional cost savings due to reduced labor and maintenance costs previously needed for the frequent service of 528 fluorescent tubes and ballasts.
I am pleased with the partnership between us, Eco-Green-Energy and Flex Lighting Solutions. The new LED high bay fixtures look great, provides significant savings and more efficient lighting.- Facilities Supervisor, Executive Aviation Company
