The requirements for the new lighting system were not simple. The Ritz-Carlton understandably places a high value on creating the right ambience for it guests, so the lights needed to replicate the performance of the previous system. In addition, they needed to reduce energy costs and C02 emissions, while minimizing heat generation and maintenance requirements.
LED lighting was the solution. In order to ensure all the requirements were met, the chandelier lamps in one half of the corridor were replaced with Novallure LED bulbs. The comparison showed that the new Novallure lamps sparkled more brightly, and made the passageway more welcoming. As a result, 415 chandeliers and 189 wall lamps were fitted with Novallure LED and MASTER LED bulbs.
The new fixtures have created a wonderful atmosphere, which not only matches but exceeds the quality of the previous lighting. In addition, the long lifetime of the bulbs, which last between 150,000 and 200,000 hours, will significantly reduce maintenance costs. The reduced heat produced by the bulbs means it has been possible to switch off air-conditioning in the corridors, creating further savings. The management of the hotel chain is now considering installing LED lighting in other locations as well.
The new hospitality lighting has created energy savings of 75%, reducing the hotel’s annual costs by 27,000 Euros.
