Each industry has its own specific lighting constraints that it needs to respect to guarantee operational efficiency and the safety of its employees. The food industry, for example, needs luminaires that can be thoroughly disinfected with aggressive detergents and also support large changes in temperature, since they may be used in cold stores or hot kitchens. The timber, paper and textile industry need fire resistant luminaires while metallurgical lines need lighting solutions that resistant high ambient temperatures (up to 70°C).
For all of these industries, Schréder can deliver a dedicated system to:
- Comply with industry regulations
- Optimise productivity
- Reduce operating costs
- Provide a quick payback
Comply with industry regulations
Legislative regulations are increasingly stringent in many industries. Companies in food distribution must comply to safety standards such as the BRC Global Standard or the International Food Standard (IFS). Our luminaires are HACCP-compliant and deliver the high CRI that these standards demand so employees can easily spot any potential deficiencies in food that could provoke health scares and lead to costly recalls.
A healthy and happy workforce is an effective one. Schréder luminaires minimise glare and deliver a bright white light to prevent eye strain, headaches and ultimately fatigue.
They also provide a high CRI, which is particularly important for workers on night shifts, as it can help them to feel more focused and alert. Sharpened concentration levels contribute to reducing the number of accidents and improving productivity.
Reduce operating costs
With their impressive lifespan and reliable nature, modern LEDs make operations far more efficient. They significantly reduce the labour costs associated with replacing outmoded discharge lamps, as well as the expenditure on the product itself.
Fitted with high-performing LEDs, our luminaire not only reduce energy consumption but also substantially lower maintenance expenses, enabling your business to prosper. In fact, when combined with our control system our luminaires can reduce energy and operating costs by up to 80%.
Provide a quick payback
Up to 40% of a building’s electricity use is accounted for by lighting. By investing in our low energy luminaires, you can enjoy an average payback period of less than 3 years with fixtures that last more than 10 years. The significant reduction in energy and maintenance costs results in savings that enhance profitability.
The addition of our control system with sensors, which can seamlessly integrate with existing building management systems, further enhance the total cost of ownership for our lighting solutions.
