Hybrid gym makes savings with energy efficient LED lighting
The LED lighting brand, Goodlight, has announced that CrossFit Perpetua, a dedicated hybrid gym is set to make up to 70% energy savings following the replacement of its old fluorescent lighting, with long life, energy efficient G5 LED Battens from the Goodlight range. Return on investment is expected within 18 months.
CrossFit Perpetua, one of London’s leading CrossFit facilities has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment. Situated in the railway arches near Battersea Power Station, the facility provides a CrossFit training programme that builds strength and conditioning through extremely varied and challenging workouts.
Commenting, Michael Price, Founder and CEO of CrossFit Perpetua said: “As part of the refurbishment programme, we were keen to adopt LED lighting, not only for the obvious reduction in energy costs but we wanted a light that resembled natural daylight which is exactly what we have achieved. We chose Goodlight LED lighting because we loved the design and the G5 LED Battens are very sleek and fit well into a modern space. The CrossFit brand is a streamlined design and the lights blend in beautifully.
“We’ve received great feedback from our clients who are enjoying the fresher, crisper, brighter light and aesthetically they give a new feel to the place. Since the installation, we have been very impressed with the light quality which is evenly spread across the facility.”
Goodlight supplied CrossFit Perpetua with G5 LED Battens which deliver very high levels of light output, offering up to 110lm/W. They were a drop-in replacement for the outdated five foot twin fluorescent tubes and installation took just two days. The G5 is a glass-free LED Batten that features a 120° beam angle for optimal light spread, making it a perfect linear LED lighting choice for leisure environments. They require no ongoing maintenance and have a lifespan of 50,000 hours over a five year guarantee.
Since installation, CrossFit Perpetua’s carbon footprint has been slashed from 13,253 to 4,760kg per year, representing an impressive 64% saving in CO².
