Thorn Lighting keeps Wincanton plc on ‘TRAX’

Wincanton Trax Park 2 is benefiting from a
range of Thorn Lighting luminaires, which meet
the brief for increased sustainability, energy
savings and a well-lit working environment.

Logistics specialists Wincanton plc has used Thorn Lighting’s luminaires for the refurbishment of Wincanton Trax Park 2 in Doncaster, aiming to reduce energy use and maintenance, increase sustainability and provide a well-lit working environment. Thorn supplied a variety of luminaires including Hi Pak Pro LED, Corrosion Force and ForceLED.

Wincanton Trax Park 2 is a multi-user site that operates around 18 hours a day with up to 80 people working across a number of shifts.

The entire 10,933sq m warehouse has been updated, including above and under the mezzanine floor above the loading bays, plus the open plan marshalling areas and racking aisles.

Hi Pak Pro LED, a highly efficient, robust and low maintenance high bay has been installed in the warehouse to provide 18500 lumens with both open area and rack optics for precise control. They have been fitted with sensor control for occupancy and daylight dimming in both narrow beam and wide angle beam to maximise energy efficiency.

A Rack optic channels the light down between the racks where the gap in the racks is around 2.5m. Hi Pak Pro LED provides up to 135Llm/W to achieve significant energy savings when compared to the original 400W SON high bays and the on board thermal management system ensures LED performance and a lifetime of over 50,000 hours.

Thorn’s compact ForceLED, with its IP66 rated watertight seal, has been used for the ends of racking. The luminaires have a unique prismatic diffuser and wireless integrated controls for higher energy savings via presence-based dimming. The highly efficient LEDs (~120Llm/W) incorporated in ForceLED luminaires further reduce energy consumption and costs and ensure a long service life of over 50,000 hours.

Corrosion Force 7000 LEDs are providing illumination for the loading area canopy. Corrosion Force is a high performance, IP65, dust and moisture proof, corrosion resistant luminaire with a GRP canopy and PMMA diffuser that can be used in all atmospheres, including those laden with salts, acids and mineral oils.

Site electricity consumption has dropped 60% since the installation of Thorn’s LED luminaires and Wincanton plc is very pleased with the results.
