Food Processing Lighting

Cannon Avent is a well known manufacturer of Baby Food including brands such as SMA.  Based in Sudbury, Suffolk, it is the only entirely industrial building in the UK to have won an architectural RIBA award and featured in a Channel 4 programme ‘Britain’s Best Buildings’.  Food Processing lighting is appropriate for this Building.

The lighting in the main Production areas consists of approx 100 high performance and low maintenance WideBays.  This food processing lighting provides high illumination levels on both vertical and horizontal surfaces.  Most traditional High bay type fittings (and newer LED type fittings) usually only provide lighting on horizontal surfaces (Floor, Work Benches etc) and the vertical surfaces (walls, machines, etc) tend to be dark.  As well as bright vertical surfaces, this lighting system provided an electricity saving of c. £21,000 per year compared to a standard High Bay system.

In the same Facility, the Warehouse lighting was illuminated with approx 100  Warehouse fittings.  Warehouse lighting requires mainly narrow beam, downward lighting so we usually offer Racklyters with T5 Fluorescent lamps or LED fittings and connect to occupancy sensors for maximum energy savings.

Lamp life with VeeLite Metal Halide systems is usually 20,000 hours average, but recently this has been extended to 40,000 hours as an option.  We also offer this Product in 280w LED version, which provides typically a 40-50% energy saving.  LED systems have a typical life of 60,000 to 100,000 hours depending on the Project.
