    Light as a Service is
    perfect for us.

    All we do, is pay for a service contract for all of our stores. Our program comprises the entire conversion of all our stores, including the removal of old lighting and the installation of new LED luminaires. The maintenance of the lighting is also included in this. And in case of problems or defects, one e-mail is enough to have it resolved."

    The customer's challenge

    Praxis and Brico, subsidiaries of parent organization Maxeda, wanted to install energy-efficient LED lighting in their stores. Their aim was to show products to their best advantage and to save costs. Light as a Service was chosen for 120 stores. With Light as a Service, the customer only pays for the light, not for the lamps.

    The right lighting

    Praxis and Brico opted for two types of LED lighting: CoreLine Trunking for stores with low ceilings and special LED pendant luminaires for stores with higher ceilings. All other areas such as the warehouses, offices, wardrobes, restrooms and sawmills were also fitted with energy-efficient LED luminaires. The pendant luminaires were specially designed for Praxis. Because they are made in the Netherlands through digital manufacturing and are fully recyclable, they ensure an extremely low CO2 footprint.

    Henk Schurink, Construction and Store Fittings Manager at Praxis: "In our aisles we now have a light output of 500 lux. This is more than enough to beautifully highlight our products and still save energy. We receive many positive reactions from our customers and our employees."
