Mid-Rise Hotel With 9-Foot Ceilings


Before
After

PROJECT CHALLENGE
Replace 29-watt spiral compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) with an LED solution to lower energy consumption, reduce maintenance costs, reduce warm-up time, maintain foot-candles and minimize the "presence" of the energy-efficient lighting to avoid theft.

SOLAIS SOLUTION
Solais LBR30 lamp delivering 800 lumens at 14 watts - this BR30 LED lamp replacement is the only one of its kind capable of upgrading this application, while transforming the appearance of the lighting back to the traditional incandescent look.

PERFORMANCE RESULTS
The Solais LED solution instantly came on to full brightness, saved more than 51% of energy costs and delivered the desired 12 foot-candles on the floor and general living space, all while physically looking identical to traditional incandescent technology - allowing hotel management to realize immediate energy savings and to protect its investment in energy-efficient lighting.

BEFORE SOLAIS SOLUTION
The 6-inch recessed housing designed for spiral CFLs in this application is only 54% efficient. This results in only 951 of the 1760 mean lumens emitting from the fixture. The unique appearance of the spiral CFLs also results in many lamps being stolen from the hotel.

AFTER SOLAIS SOLUTION
The directionality of the Solais LBR30 lamp prevents excessive light loss from occurring in the fixture, providing the equivalent light levels from fewer lumens. This can be seen in the renderings above.
