Over 350 Dialight LED High Bays installed at this 132,000m2 Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) for a major global retailer.
At the time of build, this RDC was the largest facility of its kind in the world with a total pallet capacity of 270,000. The site was installed with 400W SON High Bays throughout the warehouse space, which offered a poor orange light at around an average of 150 lux.
The LED replacement project pitted two of the major LED manufacturers against one another to ascertain reliability, durability, cost savings and lifespan of the products.
During 2012 several different designs were compiled to model the LED luminaires, with a number of critical changes being applied, not least the average lux requirement increasing from 150 to 200 across the RDC runways.
