Building on the successful launch of Orion, refrigeration lighting pioneer Nualight, whose customers include retail giants such as Sainsbury's, Co-op, Tesco and Prodega, has now launched a range of LED tubes aimed squarely at the entry level LED and retrofit market.
Arctic, as the names suggests, is a specialist LED solution suitable for refrigeration and low temperature applications but users can be equally confident that the lighting will perform just as well when used as a direct replacement for fluorescent lamps outside of colder environments due to its operating temperature range from -25°C to +35°C.
Whilst LED is more competitive than ever and there is a broad understanding of the potentials for high energy savings and long lifetimes, external commercial factors can still mean that a complete new LED installation or changeover is not right for everyone.
This is where Arctic can fill the gap and provide the first step on the energy saving ladder, without the need to rewire or rework a current installation.
Specialist solution for refrigeration and low temperature applications
With light output at 125lm/W, Arctic says it can save up to 80% energy and can be easily installed into refrigeration and freezer cases, while often improving the lighting effect and user experience. Traditional fluorescents do not perform well at low temperatures, as the temperature decreases, both the light output and the life of the lamp can decrease significantly. Fluorescents also generate more heat in their environment than LED, which is especially counter-productive within a refrigeration case. This negatively impacts the case manufacturers who are then forced to engineer further systems within to balance the heat, but often it is the end customer who must cover the cost through higher energy bills and maintenance. Overall, an inefficient non-LED display case can cost the customer more in the longer term than is necessary with LED.
Energy savings are not the only benefit with LED
Within its design, Arctic embodies the vibrant, visually colour rich and enticing displays customers have become accustomed to from Nualight solutions.
David Dawkins, SVP sales and marketing, says: “With Orion, we were able to offer our OEM and retail partners with a price competitive and industry leading LED luminaire solution which complemented our existing and more premium Pure and Perfino ranges. Now with Arctic, we have a range specifically designed for facility managers, installers, shopfitters and electricians who need a specialist LED lamp solution from stock to integrate into existing or even new build installations.”
“This means as Nualight we can cover all requirements and all budgets, whether it is a refurbishment project, a new case build, retrofit or bespoke, we are confident that there is a Nualight designed solution for each situation.”
