They say you never stop learning, and here at Edge Lighting we couldn’t agree more.

 

2017 was an education for us as we further developed our ‘smart’ lighting range, with countless options for automatic light control and daylight dimming, we are taking away the onus for staff to think about lighting and can concentrate more on our next generation!

 

The aptly named “Eduteq” fitting is telling us as much about lighting as we tell our clients, with capabilities for DALI controls, daylight switching / dimming integration and corridor function being the three most popular upgrades we have delivered.

We are continuing our learning process with new environments bringing new challenges along the way, but armed with so many different lighting solutions embedded into such an unassuming looking luminaire we are tackling those head on and with great effect.

 

If you feel you have a lighting enquiry that requires an intelligent lighting solution, why not consider Edge Lighting?

5 years on from our first LED project

August 2012 was a breakthrough month for Edge Lighting, supplying our first project using only LED light source technology, at a point in the market where the longevity and quality was often questioned of LEDs.

 

5 years on and we can look back at Waitrose in Stratford Upon Avon, one of the first stores in UK to be fully lit with LED.

Light level readings show these have depreciated only 7% in 5 years running for 22,000 hours, and still looks as fresh as when it was first installed. This has surpassed all expectations and we are so pleased to be able to reward Waitrose on their willingness to look to the future and invest sensibly in their properties.

 

Many other retailers that transitioned to using LEDs from other manufacturers at a similar time have either had to have their LED lighting replaced because it had not lasted, or look dated because they used poor quality components.

 

We would like to congratulate Philips OEM whom supplied our LED modules and drivers on this project for the quality of the components provided, and with the great advancements in LED technology since 2012 we are confident this is just the beginning of a great portfolio of completed projects with a lasting impression.

Meet our Eduteq, Edge’s new solution to old conventional T8 tubes flooding schools with electricity bills that just don’t float.

 

At 130 luminaire lumens per circuit watt and available in different lengths and outputs, Edge Lighting have developed an economical and efficient solution to a dated industry standard.

That’s all well but is that a smart fitting? Does that come with DALI control you ask?

 

Yes, and there’s more!

This luminaire can house a wide array of components and accessories; offering timed presence detection, programmable operating hours, automated daylight dimming, corridor function and pretty much any emergency function you can think of.

 

So next time you’re after a more technical approach to your lighting system, think Edge Lighting, think Eduteq.

Another successful year at Edge Lighting was topped off in style at the Lux Awards 2016 as we had our nomination for Retail Project of the Year highly commended!

 

The project was John Lewis’ flagship store on Oxford Street in London as they revamped their second and third floors earlier this year.

We were able to more than half the energy consumption over these floors and maintain light levels with the latest technology always integrated into our luminaires.

 

We eagerly await another year with new challenges and opportunities as this commendation propels us into 2017.

Buildings with personality… John Lewis in Leeds

If fancy building design with plentiful natural daylight and character is not your cup of tea, then look away now…

 

This impressive statement planted by John Lewis in the heart of Leeds town centre shows not just an eye for business but a big heart to match it.

With local businesses selling over 100 products within the store amongst all your favourite name brands, John Lewis have looked a little closer to home for the people of Leeds when moving in.

 

We were all too pleased to be involved in the design, manufacture and supply of lighting systems for the store, which now complete and open for business has been a project well worth the TLC!

Subtle, elegant and efficient – what downlights should be

Come and meet our new and improved downlighting range, featuring key reflector design to minimise glare and maximise light output, ensuring you get the most out of your lighting!

 

Our new additions to the Ledteq range offer three sizes; 120mm, 170mm and 205mm.

These smaller housings are better suited to small LED COB sizes, providing a product designed specifically for the modern market.

 

So when you next think of quality lighting, think of EDGE Lighting.

Another LED retrofit success story… Waitrose – Harrow Weald

Not exactly one from the catalogue, Waitrose at Harrow Weald features a concealed grid plaster ceiling with varying ceiling heights.

EDGE Lighting were required to find a retrofit solution to allow the existing ceiling to be retained, involving site surveys, innovative engineering and a lighting design to suit.

 

 

The end result for Waitrose is a cost effective modernisation of their existing lighting, minimising disruption to the store, and limiting resources required to a component level where possible.

This marks just one of many successful LED retrofits that EDGE Lighting has undertaken to provide cost effective lighting upgrades.

Spun, hung and strung, these rustic copper pendants make a perfect pairing with a 2700K warm white lamp, creating a warm and welcoming environment.

 

These pendants were designed for a project, and following excellent customer feedback these have now been incorporated into our product range!

 

Capturing the beauty in simplicity, we believe these would feel right at home from a breakfast bar to a swanky restaurant… and anywhere inbetween!

Sweeney’s Budgens in Abbots Langley required a vibrant and interesting entrance, which featured a higher plasterboard ceiling over the front two aisles. The solution: Metro lighting system.

 

EDGE designed the shape of the Metro to run between aisles and interlink as one piece. This has the added benefit of various outputs all programmable using Philips simple set drivers which are programmable to the desired current which enables exact light levels to be met as required.

 

We have had good feedback from the client post-installation, and we thoroughly enjoyed working on this project, which required innovation, creative lighting design and a high level of targeted illumination on vertical working planes.

"I wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team for the excellent innovation and support in developing for Waitrose an LED lighting solution that supports our ongoing commitments in Carbon Reduction"

Jim Burnett

General Manager Engineering, Waitrose

"The EDGE lighting team were clean, efficient and super fast. They completed the installation overnight so we could continue to trade as normal."
