MAGNET COMPLETES ENERGY SAVING LIGHTING INSTALLATION IN EAST LONDON MAGNET recently completed an energy saving lighting installation for the new Boxer Superstores distribution centre DC which opened in East Lon don towards the end of 2017 “Following the success of Magnet’s lighting installation for Boxer Super stores in over 80 stores nationwide since 2015, the Magnet team was awarded the contract to design and supply an energy efficient lighting system for the new 16 000 m2 Boxer distribution centre in East London,” explains Kaylen Reddy, Magnet’s lighting solutions engineer and MARS product specialist. “Magnet’s locally manufactured MARS LED lighting system, which ensures maximum energy savings without compromising on lux levels, was selected for the project. “The MARS LED lighting range is based on advanced European technology and focuses on the principles of ‘Modular, Adaptable, Reconfigurable and Serviceable’ to spell out MARS. The efficient lighting system boasts key features that include enhanced aesthetics, an L80B10 rating, extended lamp life of over 50 000 hours and based on an ambient temperature of 35 °C, to ensure safe use at this DC, which operates 24 hours a day. “Precise analysis and defined performance parameters during laboratory testing in the Energywise lighting laboratory at Magnet’s KwaZulu Natal head offices, ensure the highest levels of accuracy in every aspect of lighting, including design and manufacture.” The luminaires, which have been developed for easy installation and simple retrofit projects, offer high quality, low glare light, available in different distributions, from 30°, 60° to 120°. This customisable range is also available with dimmable functions and is supported by a five year guarantee. The linear LED luminaires are designed to easily clip onto a P2000 channel for a quick and effortless installation. All the installer then needs to do is connect the power supply. The modular design of the fittings facilitates the customisation of lengths, lumen output and wattages to suit every application. An extruded rail enables easy mounting and replacement of LED boards and an electronic driver, with adjustable output settings, ensures flicker free operation.
