Get ahead of one of the biggest regulatory changes to the commercial lighting industry this century by talking to Smart Systems today. Now is the time for action.
The UK is observing the EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive and will be phasing out T5 and T8 fluorescent tubes by February 2024. This announcement has already resulted in spiralling costs of lighting control gear and tube supplies which should encourage everyone using these luminaires to plan for replacements or retrofitting as soon as possible.
At the same time, CFL bulbs will be phased out, further reducing the environmental impact of mercury and other dangerous materials in electrical waste (WEEE), plus reducing the costs of day–to–day use.
What can be done?
We strongly recommend taking two immediate actions:
1-Schedule an immediate review of current installations to understand the capital expenditure required to replace and run more efficient LED luminaires.
2- Consider the impact of works, ensuring your chosen supplier and installer can retrofit existing fittings where possible or give assurance of minimal disruption to your business environment.
With increasing costs of energy, materials supply, and regular maintenance, combined with a potential shortage of spares, there is little benefit to operating any fluorescent fittings in your building.
LED lighting is now not only more efficient but by using quality, hand–sourced parts, lighting quality is better (no flicker!), longer lasting and requires little or no costly maintenance. With building management software (lighting control systems), efficiency is further improved, and any maintenance can be identified before issues arise.
Let’s make this happen.
Smart Systems has been in the business of energy-saving lighting for over 20 years. We’re proud to offer a wide range of high–quality LED light fittings for all commercial and industrial applications.
To ensure your LED installations meet your requirements now and in the future, we can visit your premises and advise on the best way to improve your lighting in terms of practicality, aesthetic, and budget.
Unlike many competitors, we don’t automatically recommend scrapping existing light fittings and replacing them like for like. We have considerable experience in upgrading fluorescent lights into LED without the need to remove the fittings themselves, reducing the cost of new light fittings, and installation costs and minimising damage to décor.
We have now supplied over 250,000 replacement LED upgrade gear trays over a wide range of building types in just a few years. Click this link to see information on the upgrade gear trays.
You can see examples of some of our upgrade projects here.
Don’t wait – contact us now.
With an exponential rise in demand for replacement installations in the run–up to the fluorescent phase-out, we suggest planning and booking your on–site visit with Smart Systems very soon.
