In at the Deep End for Carbon8 Lighting

A replacement of fluorescent lighting to 80W High Performance LED Floodlights supplied by industry experts Carbon8Lighting has significantly increased light levels and enhanced the ambience of an indoor swimming pool at St Catherines School in Twickenham, Middlesex.

“The swimming pool complex was originally lit with dull, harsh fluorescent lighting which required regular maintenance” commented installer David Hogben of Sky Electrical, Twickenham. “Another issue we had to consider was chlorine which can cause extensive damage to any light fittings and we have found previously that some fittings can start to fail within 6 months” he continued.

After initial assessment of the swimming pool area by Sky Electrical, followed up with a light simulation report, using Dialux software, Sky Electrical was able to show that the Carbon8Lighting LED Floodlights would provide a good even light and colour temperature which would enhance the ambience of the pool complex.

The combination of high humidity, ambient temperature and chlorine in the atmosphere make an indoor swimming pool one of the harshest environments for a light fitting. The Carbon8Lighting High Performance range is not just about lighting performance but also about robustness. A combination of specialist powder coating and high grade stainless steel ensure that the fittings will last even in the harshest conditions.

Feedback from staff at the school has been very positive on the new lighting and Carbon8’s floodlights have meant a trouble free lighting solution for maintenance staff.
