VW Workshop

Ricoman supplied vehicle workshop lighting for VW Crewe on May 2021. The worksop is part of the Swansway Motor Franchise who are based in Crewe.

Project contractors were ABL Developments and light fittings were supplied via Electric Center, Fenton.

Original lighting consisted of 44 x 2x49W HF T5 fluorescent battens with trough reflectors mounted on 50mm x 50mm lighting trunking at 4m AFFL. Ricoman specification team worked to find the best solution to meet the client requirements.

The design consisted of replacing these point for point using Thanos linear high bay at 70W. Thanos is ideal for aisles and vehicle workshop lighting, with an amazing efficacy of 150 lumens per watt. It also features a choice of optics to adjust beam angles between 30°, 60° and 120°. The fitting can be chain or conduit rod suspended.

Ricoman Specification Manager had looked at using the R141-03 Multiple Application Fixing Bracket to trunking mount the Thanos. However, the contractor  used the suspension chain “wrapped” around the trunking.
In the specific project, the upgraded lighting managed to provide average light levels in excess of 500 Lux, up from 300 Lux. From an energy point of view, the upgrade led to a  37% decrease in power consumption coupled with the recognized through-life benefits of LED.
