We recently completed upgrading the main level and exterior lighting for Hillsborough Fire Co 2’s facility on Route 206 in Hillsborough, NJ.
The existing lighting in the main garage was 13 U Tube 2×2 Fluorescent Troffers (at 64W each) and 12 400W Metal Halide 2×2 Troffers (at 460W each with the ballasts). This existing wattage total was 6,352 watts! And they always had to wait 20 minutes for the Metal Halides to warm up every time they turned them on! This 1st photo is what it looked like at 6,352W.
We upgraded this large firehouse’s garage with 25 LED 40W 2×2 Flat Panel Troffers = just 1,000W! This equals an 84.26% Energy Savings with significantly superior illumination! This 2nd Photo shows how tremendous this firehouse now looks with our 40W, 4000K LED 2×2 Flat Panel Troffers.
- Instant on! No more waiting for Metal Halides to warm up!
- 10-Year USA Warranty!
- Rated for 100,00 hours!
- Completely sealed so no bugs or debris can ever get behind the lenses!
- Edge-lit design so no glare!
- Brighter, yet softer!
- Dimmable Drivers are standard – adding controls in the future will be easy!
This facility also has a smaller garage, equipment room, kitchen/laundry, back hall and first-floor bathrooms that were all illuminated with 2×4 fluorescent troffers with 3 32W T8 lamps in each one – 37 total troffers using 3,552 more watts. This 3rd Photo shows the Equipment room with 2×4 3 tube T8 fluorescent prismatic troffers. Note the shadows and how dingy the equipment looks under fluorescent light.
All 37 fluorescent 2×4 troffers were replaced/upgraded with the same LED 2×2 40W Flat Panel Troffers with outstanding results using just 1,480 total watts. This equals another 58.34% in energy savings with superior lighting and a 10-Year USA Warranty!
This 4th Photo shows how great this Equipment Room now looks. Note the reduction in shadows throughout this equipment room and how much better all the different colors look – these firemen can now more quickly and accurately locate the equipment they need!
The exterior of this firehouse had 3 70W Metal Halide wallpacks that barely illuminated the front. The firemen wanted more light out front so they can work on their vehicles and do what they need to do at night sometimes. They also wanted this better illuminated for safety.
They wanted more light, period!
They liked these so much, they ordered 3 more for over their rear garage doors!
Even though the old and the new wallpacks are both 70W, the old had ballasts which add 25W, making the old wallpacks 95 Total Watts each.
So, our LED Wallpacks will still save 26.3% on energy while providing at least 10 times more light!
These LED Wallpacks also come with a 10-Year USA Warranty and are also rated for 100,000 hours, which is 22 years of dusk to dawn lighting! Eliminating maintenance for 10 to 20 years or more – what’s that worth to a busy firehouse?
