Venture Natural White Lighting Saves Energy

In the growth of energy efficient lighting and energy savings, Venture Lighting Brand Uniform Pulse Start Natural White® Metal Halides are setting new trends. Shopping Centers, Car Dealerships and general area lighting waste massive amounts of energy, however its need is crucial to these businesses. Having suffiecient parking lot lighting attracts customers to the businesses as well it provides safety and security for potential customers. Dark parking lots inherently attract higher levels of crime. It has become a proven that the better the quality of light at night, the more customers feel safe and attracted to shop. The brighter and more visible the transit area is the likely hood for crime and property liability is reduced. This often times is the reason for the massive amounts of parking lot lighting fixtures, extremely high wattage and huge power bills. Better Lighting Provides Superior Benefits Venture Lighting has introduced its line of Pulse Start Metal Halide Lamps and Ballasts in 575 Watt and 775 watt versions to replace 1000 Watt Metal Halides. These lamps provide Pure Natural White Light (5000K) that provides superior visual acuity enhancing the see-ability for employees and customers at night.

Mattress Store | Brighter And Whiter Is Better

18/09/10 0 COMMENTS

In retail most business owners take careful planning into the walls, the floors, and how products are displayed.   But often we find that smaller business neglect to recognize the need for good lighting.   Often times business owners tell us that by the time they get the store up and running that a good lighting system is not in the budget.   Great lighting doesn’t have to come from any large expense.  This is a misconception and due to lack of knowledge.

Great Lighting Is Not Expensive

MATTRESS STORE GREAT LIGHTING SELLSGreat lighting can be created by simply selecting a fairly inexpensive light bulb that is appropriate for the type of products being displayed, or sold.  Factors to consider are the primary colors of merchandise, reflectance of walls and floors as well as natural day lighting coming in through windows.   When we look at a situation such as a Mattress Store, the primary color is white.   Therefore having light bulbs that give the truest tone of white coloring, the mattresses will look whiter and brighter

There Is No Excuse For Bad Lighting

On a visit to another local mattress store, the sales person informed us that they did not want bright white light bulbs in their ceiling because they did not want customers to lay down and stare into a bright light.   However retail logic tells us that customers are not concerned with what is in the ceiling, just how great the product they are interested in buying appears.  So when Land Of Sleep decided to purchase natural White Light Bulbs from Synergy Lighting, they did exactly what any great mattress store should do.  Make their product look amazing!

Making The Change Is Easy

The change over to Natural White Lighting for this mattress retailer was inexpensive and resulted in a 40% energy savings over traditional 4 lamp fluorescent fixtures. No new fixtures or large expenses was needed, just a simple change of light bulbs to do the trick!  Not only was the change a dramatic effect, but it paid for itself from the energy savings.  Now when customers come in to view a mattress, the product looks stunning, sales are increased and when laying down to try the matress out, customers can close their eyes and picture themselves in mattress heaven!

What is Scotopically Rich Lighting?

28/07/10 3 COMMENTS

Often we talk to customers about Scotopically Rich Lighting, and for those who have never heard the term before it can be a little confusing.   Manufacturers have performed studies for year on the photopic lumens that are produced by a light source such as a light bulb.  The photopic lumens are a measurement of brightness by a lumen meter.   This measurement can be translated by how light is percieved the cones in the human eye.  These light meters completely ignore the effect of rod activated vision (scotopic).  As a result, lighting practice accepted this single sensitivity function because it was erroneously assumed that the more light sensitive rods only functioned at very dim light levels.

How the eye perceives light

Human Eye Rods and ConesLight arrives at our eye from all portions of an illuminated space. At the back of the eye there is a light sensitive membrane called the retina which contains millions of very tiny light receptors. These receptors convert light into electrified signals that are sent to the vision centers of the brain. The retina contains two major categories of light receptors (photoreceptors) called the cones and rodsbecause of their geometric shapes.  The central part of the retina, the fovea, contains only cones. In the rest of the retina there are both rods and cones, with the number of rods dominating the cones by about 10 to 1.

Scientists have recently discovered that the rods in the human eye can perform in dim light levels as well as interior lighting levels of those commonly found in office environments and stores.  These rods are sensitive to light sources that emit bluish-white color tones like those found in higher kelvin temperature fluorescent light bulbs.   Vision specialists put both functions of the rods and the cones together to measure a complete value of light sensitivity know as a Scotopic/Photopic (S/P) Ratio.    The S/P Ratio of most fluorescent and incandescent lamps is very low.  For example, a Warm White Bulb has an S/P Ratio of 1:14 while a full spectrum 5000K lamp lamp such as an Ultra 50 or Skybrite has a ration of 2:47.  These number can be hard to understand, so lets look at it in a more simple light.

Human Eye Scotopic LightingLamps that are in the yellow kelvin temperature range 2700-4200 use primarily the cones in the eye.  The pupil becomes enlarged to allow more light to enter the eye, and therefore causing more muscles in the eye to work harder to provide visual clarity.   Lamps in the 5000 Kelvin range allow the rods to work better, which in turn constricts the pupil and allows for easier visual clarity which is a scotopic response.  In otherwords, thwo light sources can have the same photopic lumens, but the lamps with higher scotopic values will apear to the eye  as being percieved brighter.  This scotopic response reduces visual fatigue, increase reading ability and reduces “disability glare”, especially in the electronic office.

Scotopically Rich Lighting Redues Fatigue and Glare

Disability glare is defined by the Illuminating Engineering Society as “glare resulting in reduced visual performance and visibility”. It is often accompanied by discomfort.  Disability glare occurs as a result of “light scatter” in the eye. Light scatter is caused by imperfections in the optical media of the eye (the cornea & lens). These imperfections are common to some degree in everyone, and become more severe with age. The imperfections in the optical media cause a scattering of light rays coming from the non task area, causing undesirable light to fall on the central part of the retina (the fovea) where the task is focused. This causes a background haze of useless light on the central retina (the fovea) and reduces retinal contrast. Because the fovea contains only cones, just the photopic content of the ambient or general light is responsible for disability glare. Because people of age suffer from other conditions such as macular degeneration and cataracts, one must understand that the visible spectrum of light becomes diminished.  In the case of a retail store or office, a customer may only see 60% of the visible light produced, therefore the increase of both photopic and scotopic light levels can be increasingly important to reduce glare and visual fatigue thus increasing productivity and sales.

Daylight Light Bulbs | Sarasota | Art & Frame

17/06/10 0 COMMENTS

Natural White Ultra 50 Light Bulbs | Sarasota, FLIf there is any ideal candidate for color corrected light bulbs, Art & Frame of Sarasota would be near the top of our list!   Robert Antovel; Owner of Art & Frame had reached the point where he realized that it was time for a significant change.   With the current economy as it is, and with the changes going on globally, it was time to Go Green, and Go Big!   That’s just what Robert did when he decided to enlisted the help of Synergy Lighting of Sarasota to help achieve his goals.   One of the top of Robert’s list was to cut the electricity costs of his nearly 10,000 s.f. facility on US41 & Bahia Vista.  The Second on his list was to Go Green.

Synergy Lighting helped by hand selecting light bulbs that were bright enough to use less wattage, but had to be of the highest available color rendering.   With the customer in  agreement, Art & Frame converted to Natural White Lighting using the latest in Tri-Phosphor Technology with the Ultra 50 Pure Natural Daylight Lamps.  Unlike standard daylight bulbs, the Ultra 50 yields a true replication of natural light produced by the sun.  This special Tri-Phosphor technology available exclusively through Synergy Lighting has the greatest levels of light output, allowing the client to use less light bulbs through a practice called “De-Lamping”.   This is a common practice used by Lighting Experts to improve light quality while reducing the number of lamps, and ballasts in a business.  This results in a 50% energy reduction per fixture that is de-lamped.

The end result for Robert was an extremely well illuminated store that shows all color accurately to natural sun light.   In an art supply store such as  Art & Frame Sarasota, there couldn’t be a greater reward for the store and it’s large clientele.   Customers can more accurately select the paints that they need, match any colors for Framing and Matting as well as showing products with visual acuity.   Going green was achieved due to the low mercury content, and the reduction of our natural resources used to produce the electricity to power the Mega Art Store.

Sarasota Hair Salon Goes Natural!

07/06/10 0 COMMENTS

Lighting always seems to be the most over looked item when a retail store is created.  We paint the walls, pick out good flooring, and sometimes even go the extra mile to choose great looking formica to cover the counter tops.  Yet the one thing that effects everything is the lighting.  It doesn’t matter what color we paint the walls, lighting can make the color appear different.

Additionally, the lighting we overlook can make a huge difference in the tasks we perform.  This  hair salon made the realization that lighting can make all the difference especially in hair.   The sylists at the salon perform hair coloring to their clients regularly.  In most cases the Stylist peeks under the foil or wrap to check base color, and often times walks the customer outside to check if the color is correct.

By choosing Natural White light bulbs from Synergy Lighting, the stylists not only can create more accurate coloring for the clients, but the no longer need to walk a client out the door.  The natual white lamps made a hug difference and a great improvement for the business by spending less than $300.00 to complete the change over.

In the words of the Store manager; Julie, “This is the most excellent change we have ever made”!
