VR’s old maintenance hall was a dark and dirty place, with outdated lighting. For the new hall, a more comfortable enjoyable work atmosphere was desired. VR began making this a reality, with a carefully selected color scheme. Lighting was the next step, and the company wanted a system that would be eco-friendly and easy to clean, while providing optimal visibility and comfort.
LED lighting provided an express solution. For high-bay lighting, GentleSpace LEDs were suspended from the ceiling. These next-generation luminaires create a comfortable workspace with clean, bright light. In addition, their long life cycle means that no one will have to venture up to the high ceilings to maintain them for a long time.
To provide clear visibility by the side of train tracks and under the rails, Pacific LED luminaires were installed. Their smart, durable construction makes them easy to clean, maintain and upgrade. The new industrial lighting has been carefully placed to create optimal visibility for workers. In addition, smart controls mean the lights dim automatically when there is enough daylight present, or when there is no movement in the area.
The new lighting provides a comfortable, safe workspace for engineers, and fulfils all environmental requirements. Through the energy and maintenance savings it provides, the investment will be paid back within three years.
