The London headquarters of fashion retailer, River Island, has installed Megaman’s LED AR111 and Crown Silver lamps, to help improve light output and energy saving. The London office complex has recently gone through re-development with old warehouse areas being made into additional offices and refurbishment of existing office space.

Retail lighting design firm, Prolight Design, were asked to produce a lighting scheme to incorporate the triple head gimbal recessed downlighters that had already been chosen by River Island’s management team. With the delicate glass light fittings requiring a reflector type lamp, Prolight suggested using a mixture of Megaman’s 14W LED AR111 and 7W Crown Silver to provide optical control and light output without the heat generation.

Offering 50,000 hours life, Megaman’s AR111 LED lamps use the company’s patented Thermal Conductive Highway (TCH) technology. They offer a direct replacement for halogen spots in terms of both colour temperature and intensity whilst providing energy saving of up to 80%. Megaman’s LED Crown Silver, A60 shape lamps have a silver plated crown top with the rest of the lamp clear glass. The aesthetic design, high colour temperature and high colour rendering make it well suited for any decorative or mirror lighting as it provides a non-glare, indirect controlled light. The lamp also has a life of 30,000 hours.

Following installation of the Megaman lamps at River Island, Prolight have calculated an energy saving of 25,584kW which equals 13,918 kg of CO2.
