Greenlite Lighting Solutions, an expert in commercial lighting, recommends that retailers make sure they’re being sold the lighting solutions that are right for them and their merchandise – especially when it comes to LEDs.
The specialist in green lighting suggests that businesses assess the quality of LEDs before purchase and stress-test all parties within the supply chain. This includes asking questions such as:
• “What is the long-term viability of the solution?” • “What is the background of the manufacturer?” • “Does the warranty include only product replacement or a full return-to-site replacement?”
Greenlite also notes that retailers should look for evidence that the solution will reduce energy as well as increase footfall within the shop. As a commercial low-energy lighting specialist, Greenlite prides itself on offering solutions that deliver both good light-quality and high energy-efficiency.
Andy Chell, Sales and Marketing Manager at Greenlite, says: “Many lighting companies – especially LED-only companies – will try and sell the products they have, rather than seek out options best suited to the individual retailer.”
He adds: “It can be better to use an independent lighting supplier that has no bias towards a particular manufacturer or technology.”
