Lighting specialists Magnet has added another energy-saving lighting installation to its repertoire, with the completion of an installation for the new Boxer Superstores distribution centre (DC) in East London, the company indicated in a statement last month.
“Following the success of Magnet’s lighting installation for Boxer Superstores 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 m3 Boxer distribution centre in East London,” explains Magnet lighting solutions engineer and MARS product specialist Kaylen Reddy. “Magnet’s locally manufactured MARS LED lighting system, that ensures maximum energy savings, without compromising on lux levels, was selected for this 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, he explains.
“This highly 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 35º, to ensure safe use at this DC, which operates 24 hours a day.”
Precise analysis and defined performance parameters were followed during laboratory testing in the Energywise lighting laboratory at Magnet’s KwaZulu-Natal head offices, which ensured the highest levels of accuracy in every aspect of lighting, including design and manufacture.
These high-performance luminaires, which have been developed for easy installation and simple retrofit projects, offer high-quality, low glare light, available in different distributions, from 30º, 60º to 120º. 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 on to a P2000 channel for a quick and effortless installation. Following this, the installer is merely required to 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.
“It’s a pleasure working with Magnet, they simplify the process of lighting design and provide not only quick and efficient service, but also great after-sales service, to ensure the right product for the right environment,” enthuses Boxer project manager Rob Munro.
Magnet’s team of lighting specialists boasts extensive experience in identifying energy-saving opportunities and implementing appropriate ecofriendly solutions to reduce wasted electricity in diverse industries.
Apart from lighting solutions, Magnet’s energy-saving service also incorporates metering, hot water systems, air-conditioning controls and solar systems. This project management service has contributed significantly to the reduction of wasted energy in industrial and commercial sectors throughout South Africa.
