What makes lighting one of the most important aspects of any Commercial establishment is the fact that it can have a direct impact on the most crucial dimensions of buying decisions like value, aesthetics, performance, and user experience.
Being more visually appealing than the traditional lighting technologies, LEDs are also far more energy efficient. Companies that use LED lighting, report a 50 percent drop in their energy bill than they would have with conventional lights. The most cutting-edge LED downlights are presently being used in showrooms, shopping malls, experience centers and offices around the globe. High-intensity, focused light from recessed LED lighting allows focussing on the areas of interest to highlight them. Compared to the MR16 halogen lamp, which would have been traditionally used in these settings, the LEDs would approximately save 75 percent more power with a much longer life of 20,000 hours.
In most offices, T5 and T8 LED tube light series deliver an efficient replacement for the conventional fluorescent tube lights. High light output, anti-flicker, anti-glare and excellent heat dissipation are some properties to enhance work productivity, which makes them an effective lighting solution in office spaces.
With further advancements in LED technology, the range of future applications in the commercial sector is only expanding. We understand the growing need of not just cost-optimization and value-engineering in commercial applications, but also the importance of performance improvement. And keeping this in mind we have dedicated our R&D teams to architect affordable efficient LED lighting solutions for our clients, which allows them to harness ‘energy saving dividends’ from their investments in our products.
Having an optimum lighting solution for industrial spaces is important to ensure the safety of workers, and achieving adequate productivity levels. What makes this segment unique in terms of lighting, is the wide variety of its application and the enormous scope of innovation.
Given the unique characteristics of LED lighting technology, they are gaining popular grounds for Industrial lighting applications. Despite their higher initial investments in comparison to the popular fluorescents and halogen lamps, LEDs win hands-down when it comes to reliability, durability maintenance. The most attractive factors include their energy saving dividends and a long lifespan (can last as long as 50,000 hours). Unlike the previous decades, when energy costs from lighting had a minuscule role in making purchase decisions, recent impacts from climate change and sharply escalating energy prices have transformed the energy bills into one of the major cost drivers for the industries.
Now, speaking of another major headache is maintenance. In large industrial facilities with hundreds of traditional lights, servicing magnetic ballasts is cost and labor intensive. But, given the fact that LED lights use semi-conductors with electronic drivers, they require little to no maintenance. Additionally, this allows the integration of control features like photo-sensing and dimming for enhanced functionality. In conclusion, from a financial point-of-view, it makes sense to opt for LED lights because of their long service life and maintenance savings.
At IKIO, we always strive to be ahead on the innovation curve, ensuring that our clients get the right product offering and value for their investments. Hence, our R&D team is aimed to tirelessly design affordable lighting solutions to maximize energy savings without compromising on their quality and durability.
Multi-family Residential and Hospitality Lighting
Years of research have proven that indoor light and its quality has a significant influence on our mood and our ability to feel relaxed. At home, your lighting efforts aren't just driven by cost-effectiveness but more importantly by the preservation of colors and liveliness. IKIO’s multi-family residential and hospitality lighting solutions aim to make the switch to LED lighting an easy task.
In the present day, energy consciousness among homeowners has enabled the drastic rise of LED lighting solutions in America. There are now, more LED lighting options available in the market, than there ever have been for CFLs and incandescents. Besides being a good samaritan with its significant energy efficiency, they have a long life-span which is not affected by frequent switch on-offs. Most importantly, they are void of hazardous materials like mercury (most CFLs contain mercury) and certified by RoHS which ensures that your homes are free of indoor pollution from lights.
Now, let's talk about aesthetics. The compactness of LEDs allows lighting solutions to not just be in a traditional bulb shape but in all forms and sizes. Hence, providing unlimited applications to the user to add lights to their homes. Another aspect of aesthetics is color. LEDs come with a high Color Rendering Index (CRI); usually 80+ or 90+. This ensures your favorite colors look crisper and brighter even at night. Additionally, the advanced electronic driver circuitry of LEDs make them flicker-free, which allows the integration of advanced control features like sensing, CCT adjustments and dimming for enhanced functionality, making them clearly a better option for your numerous home lighting applications.
With the rapid expansion of the planet’s population, horticulture has become a necessary science to grow food even on non-arable lands. Whether in agriculture facilities housed indoors or in greenhouse settings, the potential of the LEDs in farming of vegetables, fruits, flowers and herbs is phenomenal.
The issue of rising energy costs in the field of horticulture looms large on its long-term growth and affordability. It is here that the LED lights come to the rescue. With high energy efficiency and low maintenance costs, it drastically ups the sustainability factor of horticulture. Now consider other benefits of LEDs like less heat generation and increased growth rates. Low heat from LED grow-lights means lower rates of evaporation, resulting in water savings. Whereas, spectral composition control abilities allow the LED lights to be customized specifically for crops with varied light wavelengths. All these factors contribute towards making solid-state grow lights a potent contender in protected agriculture vis-à-vis their traditional counterparts.
