The Khalsa Academies Trust supports local communities to help establish and run Sikh Schools. The Khalsa Academy in Wolverhampton (TKAW) has just built a new secondary school and Electrical Contractors Air Cool Engineering Midlands Ltd, installed a host of LED energy efficient luminaires from Luceco.
The Catering Block was lit with Leren offering both upward and downward light distribution providing an enhanced overall lit environment, particularly where there are high or open ceiling voids to illuminate. Suitable for many commercial applications such as board rooms and offices, Leren provides a 60% down and 40% uplight distribution. This suspended luminaire is supplied complete with adjustable wire suspensions and is available as DALI dimmable and emergency back-up variants.
LuxPanel was used for a variety of classroom applications, providing a cost-effective and energy-saving lighting solution. Glare control and adequate illuminance on the vertical combined with good uniformity needs to be considered when lighting schools, in particular, in rooms that are multi-functional. High-efficiency LuxPanels from Luceco provide the ideal solution and have a completely frameless appearance in the ceiling plane and a market-leading efficacy of 152 Llm/cW.
The panels are quick and easy to install into exposed grid ceilings, with remote ‘plug and play’ drivers and are available in standard fixed output, dimmable and emergency options with no maintenance or re-lamping requirements over their lifetime. This eliminates areas not being available for use due to lamp maintenance, as well as benefitting the environment in terms of energy efficiency and lamp disposal. Circular LuxPanels were installed in corridors and toilets. Featuring slim framed panels, Circular LuxPanels offer excellent luminous uniformity and can be supplied as standard, with emergency packs or with dimmable remote drivers in 240, 180, 150 and 120mm sizes, further demonstrating the diversity of the LuxPanel range.
Other luminaires used throughout TKAW included Epsilon. Luceco has recently launched a new variant of the popular Epsilon luminaire, an LED direct/indirect UGR19 compliant recessed fitting designed to optimise lighting performance and maximise luminaire spacing. Epsilon enjoys an improved efficacy of 140 Llm/cW due to a new micro prism optic. The luminaire is available in standard, dimmable, emergency dimmable, emergency self-test, DALI emergency dimmable and LiteIP.
Architecturally pleasing in appearance, the new Epsilon also remains within the spirit of The Society of Light & Lighting’s LG 7 requirements. Epsilon offers up to 50,000 hours working life with no maintenance or re-lamping requirement and is the perfect replacement for traditional fluorescent lamped fittings in commercial and educational environments.
LuxBay LED luminaires were installed throughout multifunctional rooms and sports facilities at TKAW. Variants include 100, 150 and 200 watts, with either a wide or narrow clear lens, attachments including flat wired guards and polycarbonate clear diffusers. As with most luminaires from Luceco, LuxBay also offers 50,000 hours of service with options of integrated presence and daylight sensors for use with fixed output or DALI dimmable control gear as well as emergency variants.
The Khalsa Academy Wolverhampton welcomes learners from all backgrounds. This principle and values ensure that young people can make a positive contribution to multi-cultural Britain. The Trust also takes responsibility for financial and resource management that delivers efficiency and effectiveness. A new fit for purpose, environmentally friendly facility with cost-effective, energy-saving LED lighting from Luceco contributes to this overall ethos.
