Car Showroom With 20-Foot Ceilings


Before
After

PROJECT CHALLENGE
Replace 88-watt ceramic metal halide (CMH) fixtures with an LED solution that lowers energy consumption, reduces maintenance costs, increases light levels on vehicles, lowers ambient light levels, allows for dimming capabilities and minimizes re-strike time when turning on the fixtures.

SOLAIS SOLUTION
The Solais Xi24 fixture, delivering 1600 lumens at only 24 watts - while a typical fixture is only 70% to 80% efficient, the Solais Xi24 fixture allows for 100% of the light to be utilized. The Solais Xi24 also requires no re-strike time and is fully dimmable. This leads to a true 1:1 replacement with lighting quality improvements.

PERFORMANCE RESULTS
By using the LED solution from Solais, the dealership was able to increase the light levels on featured cars from 78 to 100 foot-candles, while reducing the energy usage by more than 72%. 

BEFORE SOLAIS SOLUTION
The existing CMH fixture was only 70% to 80% efficient in emitting the light from the fixture. This resulted in only 4400 of the total 6600 lamp lumens actually exiting the fixture.

AFTER SOLAIS SOLUTION
The Solais Xi24 fixture allows the showroom to increase the light levels on featured vehicles, while using only 1600 lumens. This can be seen in the brighter colors in the "after" rendering.
