ERCO Case Study: Install only the light you need

September 2022 Project Case Study

Grids of old-fashioned downlights are a lighting designer’s nemesis, but there are situations in which the traditional pattern of even, controllable light levels across a space are simply the best solution.

On the home straight

The racing club Chairman’s Club at Flemington, north of Melbourne, is a hallowed hall. In various guises, it has hosted the elite horse racing community for more than 150 years, and seen the likes of Phar Lap, Makybe Diva and Think Big deliver down the famous 450 metre home straight.

But even iconic halls need updates. ERCO Victorian Channel Partner, Buckford Illumination, recently worked with the VRC to update the basic lighting throughout the main dining and entertainment area.

Do the maths

The existing lighting installation comprised 216 x 50W early-generation LED downlights.

Buckford installed 42 x 28W Skim Wide Flood low glare downlights.

Total wattage is down from 10,800W to just 1,176W.

Get the picture? Install the quantity of light you need, not the number of lights an RCP dictates. Fewer fittings means reduced purchase and installation cost, and less waste. Fewer fittings means lower operating costs. It’s simply common sense.
