Alpha – The no compromise, robust yet affordable high bay

Energy bills across the globe have steadily climbed over the past few years and industrial lighting is intensive.

In fact, with the typical 24/7 hours of operation, simply changing your lighting from older technology to the latest LED technology will almost instantly reduce your bills. Sometimes the initial investment costs can be daunting, but this is no longer the case with Nualight’s new introduction to the market.

A partnership for perfect chilled displays

As a result of a recent retrofit project between SIREM installers and Nualight, Ipercoop – Italy’s largest supermarket chain, are now experiencing the benefits of LED refrigeration lighting first hand.

A member of Italy’s Coop Group, the Ipercoop Mondovì store’s chilled display cases were lit using horizontal T8 fluorescent lamps in a warm colour temperature. The result was dull and dreary displays. Consequently, lamps required frequent replacement, expending both time and resources.

With the aim of enhancing their chilled displays, Ipercoop turned to Nualight for an LED retrofit lighting solution. Working with SIREM installers, Orion from Nualight proved to be the perfect choice.

The final installation comprised a combination of canopy LED tubes and Nualight’s Orion Vertical 4000K, retrofitted into the chiller doors. Using almost half of the original number of luminaires, the new displays are brighter, and showcase produce with an increased vibrancy, enhancing packaging and creating a ‘pop’ of colour within the case.

Stefano Vidal, Nualight Sales Engineer describes, “We worked with both Ipercoop and SIREM to ensure we found the perfect solution for their cases, opting for a cooler colour temperature to help make the merchandise come to life. Orion delivers excellent CRI and an improved light quality.”

Lorenzo Ricci Ipermarket director, adds “Ipercoop are very pleased with the new installation. The depth of colour, contrast and richness within the chiller is much better. Customer can clearly see the products packaging and I have noticed a reduction in reflections in the gallery of the counters. This has been achieved very cost-effectively, we expect to see our return on investment in less than a year.”

The retrofitted chillers now consume 72% less lighting energy, saving 3.8 tonnes of carbon per year. Furthermore, they run longer and cooler than the original fluorescent T8 lamps, lowering operating costs and reducing the risk of food spoilage. Orion’s cool light source saves additional energy as the refrigeration unit does not need to compensate for any heat generated by the light.

Francesco Repetto SIREM installer, ends “We are very satisfied with the results obtained with the lighting systems from Nualight and with the attention shown to the customer’s needs. Orion has been easy to install thanks to the practical fixing system. Nualight will surely be our point of reference for future retrofit refrigerated counter projects.”

LED and glass doors equal higher energy savings and create visual impact for Auchan

Auchan, the second largest French food retailer in the world, has recently embarked on an energy initiative for all their hypermarkets throughout France.

The aim is to close all open vertical chillers in a bid to massively reduce energy wastage. Perfino LED refrigeration luminaires from Nualight add to the gained energy savings and help eradicate the dull displays typical of closed door cases.

Closing chiller displays is a bold step from the traditional and many supermarkets and hypermarkets have feared that the action will result in a drop in chilled sales. It is well known that the addition of doors can create dark spots across the face of the products on display.

Auchan saw their refrigeration refurbishment as an opportunity to install LED lighting to their vertical chillers. After extensive testing, trials and a competitive tender period they chose the Perfino range from Nualight to add sparkle and interest to their new low energy closed refrigerators. For the glass doors, they chose Schott who worked closely with Nualight to execute the roll-out.

Edwige Guillon, Schott, Sales Director Food Display comments, “Schott Termofrost is proud to integrate Perfino with their new insulated transparent doors. Consumers can now enjoy an enhanced presentation of the food, thanks to the total transparency of the doors and a nice illumination. Auchan have found the ideal solution for saving energy and magnifying their food presentation.”

After the high impact results of the first Auchan hypermarkets were witnessed, Nualight were awarded preferred supplier status allowing over 50 French hypermarkets to use the Perfino solution for their chiller and freezer cases. This equates to over 20km of LED in one year. With low energy costs and minimal maintenance, Auchan will see a return on their initial investment within 2 years.

Following the successful roll-out to over 50 hypermarkets, Auchan are now looking at their LED retrofit requirements across Europe where Nualight is the preferred supplier.

Helios – The new smart, sleek and sophisticated industrial waterproof linear LED solution

Smart features, a unique sleek profile makes Helios a sophisticated yet affordable solution which has been stress tested and certified for 10 years harsh-industrial product life.

Within the last decade, LED has revolutionised lighting in industry. Nualight, already pioneers of LED within the retail environment, recognised their customers’ frustration when they could not transport the benefits they had realised from within the store to their own warehouses and manufacturing plants. From there, the industrial portfolio grew. Fast forward and Nualight is a name known in the industrial luminaire market for producing exceptional and affordable high-bay and linear luminaires. A new concept to market is HELIOS.

Nualight who never had the hindrances of conventional lighting technology, have designed a linear solution from the ground up. Helios is a clever, stylish, fit and forget solution constructed to offer the end user a robust high-performance luminaire, which is easy to install and flexible enough to adapt to the future requirements of the space. Simply put, Helios is smart, sleek and sophisticated

Robust & Practical
A range of robust IP66, IK10 impact resistant LED linear moisture / damp and dust proof luminaires suitable for tough industrial applications from manufacturing, logistics and warehouses to indoor car parks, cold stores, wash-down and service areas. Helios has been designed specifically with low UGR applications in mind. In a point-for-point replacement of traditional or less efficient LED luminaires, the class leading efficacies of Helios (up to 135lm/w) will enable users to make immediate energy savings without having to change their current wiring installation.

Quick and Easy to Install
Designed as “fit and forget” Helios is a sleek and simple solution welcomed by both end users and installers. Impressively light, Helios is through-wired as standard with a simple flip down access to the connector and clip-in sturdy aluminium mounting brackets. The one- part construction and hinged access compartment means there is no risk or need for installers to separate the gear-tray from the diffusers, which can often be awkward to remove and replace without trapping wires or seals and possibly compromising the IP rating of the luminaire. Likewise, in Helios there are no closure clips to be broken or lost.

Flexible for the future
With long lifetimes (L80 @100Khrs) Helios offers the ability to add accessories post-installation with minimal fuss. This is especially interesting for customers who do not opt for controls or sensors at initial installation, but who want the flexibility to easily upgrade their installations retrospectively.

Smart, Sleek & Sophisticated
Clever features which come as standard include a thermal protection circuit, low flicker, pre-fitted cable glands, analogue 1-10v dimming, self-test and separate non-maintained emitters in the emergency versions, all equate to Helios being a sophisticated solution for demanding applications.

A sleek and aesthetically pleasing profile means Helios is a contender for both front and back of house applications creating a seamless look throughout. Helios is available with range of accessories including wireless microwave dimming sensors and DALI adaptors.
