In the world of lighting, LED technology has revolutionized how we illuminate spaces. As a leader in providing practical LED solutions for industrial, commercial, and sports sectors, and with more than 10 years of experience, Kellwood Lighting exemplifies this advancement. In this article, we will review the why and how of LED lighting, its benefits, types, and specific applications, with a focus on Kellwood's product range.

Why LED?

LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting is favoured for its energy efficiency, longevity, and versatility. This technology has become a mainstay in diverse sectors due to its ability to cater to various lighting needs, while promoting energy conservation and sustainability.

Benefits of LED Lighting

  1. Save money: LED lights can be very energy efficient. LED chips consume significantly less power for the same light output when compared to traditional lighting technologies. LEDs are also easily dimmable via controls. This combination can potentially reduce energy bills by more than 90%.
  2. Reduce replacement and maintenance costs: They last longer, often remaining above 90% of their original output for over 100,000 hours.
  3. Environmental Friendliness and Compliance: LEDs help in reducing carbon footprint and support an organisation’s route to Net Zero. They do not contain as many harmful elements (e.g. mercury), when compared to older lighting technologies.
  4. Improve Health and Safety: LED lights produce less heat, reducing fire risks. Housings are typically made from robust materials, reducing hazards associated with open glass bulb and fluorescent tube fittings.
  5. Improve People’s Engagement and Wellbeing: LEDs provide enhanced design flexibility. Careful product selection can make an environment a more pleasant place to be. Optics, colour-temperature, colour-rendering, output, and chip layout are easily tailored. Lights are therefore available in various styles, offering customisation for different applications, and superior light quality​​.

LED Lighting Types and Example Applications

  1. Industrial Lighting: Robust and functional products, including high bays, linear fittings, and floodlights suitable for warehouses, factories, foundries, aircraft hangars, and more.​​
  2. Commercial Lighting: Products that blend form and function, including downlights, panels, linear lights, track lighting etc. They are typically used for office, leisure, retail, healthcare, and education sectors​​​​.
  3. Sports Lighting: Low glare and corrosion-resistant floodlights, high mast lights and impact-resistant linear lights for indoor and outdoor sports facilities, including swimming pools, sports halls, and stadiums​​​​.
  4. Hazardous Lighting: ATEX and IECEx explosion-proof fittings for applications including oil & gas, distilleries, grain processing and inspection pits.
  5. Outdoor Lighting: Streetlights, bulkheads, high mast, canopy lights, and floodlights, for projects including car parks, airport aprons, and security.
  6. Architectural, Feature, and Façade Lighting: Aesthetic lighting for installation in ground, and on building, primarily designed to generate a conscious or sub-conscious emotional response.
  7. Domestic Lighting: Typically low power form-conscious fittings, including downlights, pendants, chandeliers, wall lights, and floor and table lamps.
