APC Group replaced all their existing fluorescent and halogen lighting in their Western Australia manufacturing facilities with ROBUS LED lighting, which made their employees happier in their work environment.
APC Group Trading is a proud, Australian owned business and is one of Australia's leading manufacturers in office storage systems and warehouse storage solutions. Their custom warehouse storage solutions include pallet racking, industrial racking, raised storage areas, cantilever racking, storage shelving systems and storage cages.
The Managing Director of APC Group, Ian Mc Donald initially met ROBUS Exports Sales Director, Derek Slein spontaneously on a flight to Perth where they discussed the advantages of LED lighting as opposed to older technologies. Based on this conversation, APC Group decided to begin replacing all their existing fluorescent and halogen lighting in their Western Australia manufacturing facilities with ROBUS LED lighting.
APC’s commitment to ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ is an integral part of how they do business. Therefore, it is no surprise that they wanted to upgrade their lighting to make their employees happier in their work environment. Westcal Electrical helped APC Group select various external and internal ROBUS LED energy efficient light fittings to replace all their old luminaries.
APC Group installed 402 ROBUS LED light fittings throughout their outdoor areas, offices, storage/communal areas and their warehouse. The following ROBUS fittings were installed in the above areas: CHAMPION LED Flood lights, OHIO LED Bulkheads, SPACE LED Panels, TAYLOR LED 9W CCT3 Downlights, DUKE LED Batten, SULTAN LED Corrosion Proof and the DISK LED Highbay.
The ROBUS CHAMPION LED flood lights are an attractive solution for illuminating a variety of outdoor areas. Multiple ROBUS CHAMPION fittings were fitted outside the manufacturing facilities to ensure even light was distributed over the main external doors and material racks. The ROBUS CHAMPION fitting is ideal for installation in large open areas due to its wide beam angle. These fittings can also save you up to 50% in energy costs.
ROBUS SPACE LED panels were installed throughout the office areas in APC Group. ROBUS SPACE LED panels fit into standard ceiling grid sizes. With ROBUS SPACE LED panels you are guaranteed a fast return on investment with up to 50% energy savings that reduces carbon footprint and running costs.
The ROBUS TAYLOR 9W CCT3 downlight is the natural evolution of the IMPACT range which allows the installer to choose the Colour Temperature (CCT). The TAYLOR nearly doubles the light output of a traditional halogen which means less fittings are needed, saving you time and money. With an LED life span of 30,000 hours, the TAYLOR 9W CCT3 is a hassle-free solution in comparison to traditional lamps which require constant maintenance and lamp replacements. ROBUS TAYLOR were installed in the APC Groups boardroom.
The ROBUS DUKE LED batten is a strong, durable and robust batten that provides piece of mind. The DUKE is not easily damaged because it is made from a highly protective powder coated pressed steel. APC Group installed the ROBUS DUKE LED battens in their storerooms and staff room as you can see below.
The ROBUS SULTAN LED corrosion proof fittings were chosen for the undercover loading areas with different ceiling heights and angles. The SULTAN was selected due to its versatility and as it distributes even light at any angle. APG Group installed these vertically and horizontally across the ceilings and over shutter doors.
The ROBUS DISK LED highbay was strategically fitted onto angled ceilings allowing APC Group to focus light onto their stock racks and work areas. The ROBUS DISK LED gives out fantastic illumination in warehouse and manufacturing areas as it’s the perfect solution for high, medium or low ceiling heights. The DISK also comes with a 5 year warranty.
ROBUS OHIO LED bulkheads offer great light output for areas such as these, at very low running costs. The OHIO is available in black or white, oval or circular shapes and comes with a 3-year warranty!
Since replacing their old light fittings with brand new ROBUS LED light fittings, APC Group can expect to make large savings on their lighting electricity bills, while also reducing their carbon footprint.
This retrofit has reduced APC Group's power consumption by over 50%!
We are very satisfied with the new ROBUS LED Lighting and the service we received was excellent. The whole experience was painless! Ryan Muir was always available to assist when additional lighting and facilitation was required. Ryan and his team arranged the supply of all lighting and the installation thereof. The offices are now very well lit, and the warehouses have never been illuminated better. Our staff are very happy with the transformation from the old high bay halogens to the new LEDs. At night, the security lighting ensures our properties are as bright as day!
