Free Lights at Diamond Hangar
In Jan 2015, Pulsar worked with Diamond Hangar, Stansted to reduce running costs and also improve light levels throughout their hangar. Diamond Hangar requires high light levels every day, all year round. The lighting structure in place was High Pressure Sodium fittings burning for 3,640 hours per year. With this came huge energy consumption, generating an annual bill in excess of £75,000 for lighting alone. Pulsar’s solution replaced the original 384 HPS units with just 96 x 260W Pulsar Eco Range fixtures. This improved the lux levels at ground level by 2.9x and gave an 85% reduction on their energy bills. This saves Diamond Hangar £64,754 in energy costs every year. Diamond Hangar started getting a return on their new Pulsar LED High Bay Lights immediately. Now, after just 16 months, Pulsar’s high efficiency LED lights have paid for themselves. Or to put it differently, Diamond Hangar’s lights are now free for the next 10-20 years of their life. That’s a lot of

Kirkstall Bridge Clock Tower – Making Light of Time.
The clock tower at the heart of the development is created as a response to the industrial history of the area. The screen-printed glass cladding features images of industrial artefacts and processes specific to Kirkstall. Each visual component of the clock mechanism is created from photographs of surrounding industrial elements: the pendulum – a forge-made vehicle axle, the clock face – the original Thrift Stores clock. The clock tower itself is wrapped in an image of a woollen spool, reflecting the blanket making and textile fulling activities carried out nearby. JPLD were appointed by the Artist and creator of the tower, Kirsty Brooks, to develop a subtle lighting scheme which emphasized the elements described in the narrative while helping to establish the piece against a visually busy backdrop. The clock face lighting is tuned to the daylight ambient level to ensure it is “comfortable” to view regardless of the time of day. In appreciation of the industrious energy

Top Five Advantages of LED Lighting
Top Five Advantages of LED Lighting Efficiency - We’ve all heard about the energy efficiency of LED lights, but what’s the real story? Compared with fluorescent and metal halide, well designed LED lights will typically use between half and one quarter of the power to achieve the same light output. Compared to halogen or tungsten, the savings are even greater. Whilst it’s true that light emitting diodes are fantastically efficient light sources, the light fixtures need to be properly designed to maximise this efficiency without damaging the LED itself and degrading its light output over time. Lifetime - LED Fixtures last many times longer than their traditional counterparts, removing the cost, downtime and inconvenience of having to hire access equipment and purchase of new lamps. The long lifetime of LED products really comes into its own when considering difficult to access areas, such as the roofs of factories, warehouses and hangars, and for decorative architectural
