New Lighting Improves Working Environment
30,000 Coop employees have been given new lighting. It is guaranteed flicker free. The result is a healthier working environment.
A Good Working Environment Improves the Bottom Line
When Nordic Business Light calculates the overall bottom-line effect of a lighting investment, they incorporate improved working environment as a definite derived effect. Greater energy amongst staff results in good business.
High-quality Lighting Requirements
The lighting components and LED tubes installed as part of the project meet extremely high-quality standards. Nordic Business Light used light that is guaranteed flicker free. This plays a major role in terms of the well-being of staff. High color rendering was also an essential requirement. This particular feature enhances the presentation of goods and products to customers.
What Does ‘Flicker Free’ Mean?
‘Flickering’ is a small ‘pulsing’ in the lighting. The lighting actually appears to flicker. It is not always something that people perceive visually, but it can lead to headaches, fatigue and other discomforts, if you work under lighting with a high flicker level for an extended period of time. Flickering often occurs in poor-quality LED tubes or some types of fluorescent tubes. In the Coop lighting project, all tubes are guaranteed flicker free.
Other Coop cases
More than 700 Coop stores and a number of offices and warehouses were fitted with new LED lighting. 200,000 light sources were replaced over a period of 17 months, saving Coop DKK 25 million a year in power costs.
The successful installation of 200,000 light sources in 17 months was facilitated by shrewd project management, a hard-working team of electricians and comprehensive understanding of Coop’s needs and organization.
