How to Achieve Energy Efficiency With Carbon Reductions by ATEX LED Lighting Upgrades

Lighting Hazardous Areas

There is an international trend in the global hazardous area industry sector to upgrade conventional ATEX lighting to use energy-efficient LED lighting technology.

The specification and installation of LED lights, such as Raytec SPARTAN, will significantly reduce annual energy consumption and lower carbon emissions. The LED lights will also lower light pollution and reduce maintenance costs.

Reducing Your Carbon Footprint By Several Shoe Sizes

Furthermore, businesses are proactively aligning their hazardous area lighting upgrade with sustainability strategies to reduce carbon emissions and support ambitious carbon neutrality targets agreed by the EU in 2019 – the upgrade and investment in LED lighting by business in pursuit of zero emissions status by 2050 has led to several multinational companies to accelerate the replacement of now retrograde fluorescent type lights with modern-technology light-emitting diode (LED) light fittings.

In the drive to go green the fading glow of traditional light fittings is fastly being replaced by the brilliant “White Light” illumination of energy efficient, modern technology light-emitting diode (LED) lighting systems.

Lighting Design

Switching-off & Switching-out

We can help you Design your Lighting Scheme and here is how:

  • Full Site Modelling – a 3D design plan is used to provide you with a visual representation of what the final installed hazarodus area lighting solution with actually look like, demonstrating the lux levels and spread of light that will be achieved on scene.
  • Lighting Design Video – Thorne & Derrick and Raytec can produce video designs of your final lighting scheme. Providing a 3D walk-around offering a real life insight into how the installation will perform – from all angles.
  • Illuminance Mapping – 2D and 3D hazardous area lighting plans can also be provided in a pseudo colour view, providing illuminance mapping of the intensity and spread of the light output across the site. This is used to show that the area has been evenly illuminated which is crucial for achieving the highest level of safety and security.
  • Lighting Positions – Raytec lighting is highly targeted, providing only the right amount of light needed on scene for maximum efficiency and minimum waste. Plotting the beam direction shows the precise aiming point of each LED panel, the angle of elevation and exact position of each luminaire.

The SPARTAN range of ATEX Certified lighting manufactured by Raytec is designed for lighting hazardous areas which require high performance, high reliability, energy-efficient brilliant “White-Light” illumination using latest LED technology.
