Light, where and when it’s needed!
Carbon8Lighting gets Floodlighting up to Speed
Carbon8Lighting has supplied its High Performance LED Floodlights to MotorSport Vision (MSV), at Brands Hatch racing circuit in Kent. MSV is the UK’s leading operator of motor racing circuits, managing five separate venues across the UK.
Carbon8Lighting’s 600W LED floodlights have been selected to replace ageing 1000W HID fittings. The floodlights are being used for the architectural illumination of The Motor Sport Vision Centre, the company’s stylish head office building.
With the circuit load nearly halved, carbon emissions reduced, and most importantly, maintenance costs dramatically reduced, the benefits of carrying out the lighting upgrade was very clear to MSV.
As well as being the site for MSV’s head office, Brands Hatch hosts a range of racing events throughout the year. The company’s Circuit Electrician Matt Collen recalled: “The floodlights used to light the main building were about 10 years old and we were not happy with the running costs and constant need for repairs. As we are moving over to LED lighting in other areas on site we decided to look for LED replacements for these fittings.
Having considered a number of suppliers we found that Carbon8Lighting was able to meet our requirements perfectly and we have been very happy with the products and the service that goes with them. The fact that Carbon8Lighting are quite local to us was an added bonus”, he concluded.
