Efficient and reliable LED lighting for the Connolly Hospital, Dublin
The big challenge at the Connolly Hospital in Dublin is the following: the right lighting must be available in every area of application, delivering the light quality that is required by medical workers as they care for their patients. As in any building, low maintenance and energy efficiency play a key role in the choice of lighting selected, but in healthcare environments, reliability is particularly critical as downtime must be avoided.
LEDVANCE offered the Connolly Hospital Electrical Team following solution: to replace over 400 existing fluorescent fixtures (4 x 18W) in the A&E department, main corridors, wards, reception and ancillary hospital areas. With its 30W and 4000K colour temperature, the team chose the LEDVANCE Panel LED 600, due to the luminaire's qualities of high luminous efficacy, homogeneous light and quick and easy installation.
LEDVANCE Panels offers many benefits to the Hospital, including:
- 5-year guarantee, providing the hospital with peace of mind regarding the reliability of the products being installed and therefore a significant reduction of the hospital's electric utility bill
- higher safety in terms of cost contribution of lighting. The team noticed up to 70% energy savings through lighting.
- a brighter and cleaner working environment provided by the homogeneous light produced by the panels
"The quality assured by LEDVANCE products gives us trust in the success of our lighting projects."
