All Global Energy & Lighting fixtures have a minimum 50,000 hour life, more than 10-years of typical use, and maintain bright white light output without color shift.
Pohanka’s legacy Metal Halide lighting system operates for 4,320 hours each year. With a typical lamp service life of 10,000 hours this system can only operate for roughly two years before a replacement is needed. Additionally these lamps can lose up to 40% of their light output halfway through their service life, which again means premature replacements are necessary to maintain adequate lighting.
It is also important to note that LED lighting can make outdoor spaces safer. LED optical performance is superior to that of Metal Halide lighting, minimizing wasted light, light trespass, sky-glow and glare, which provides enhanced visibility. In addition, LED lighting can restart instantly if there is a power interruption, while Metal Halide lamps may require up to 30 minutes to cool down and restart. At an auto dealership, being in the dark for any period of time translates into lost sales.
All Global Energy & Lighting fixtures last for a minimum of 50,000 hours, more than 10-years of typical use, and many of them last much longer. They maintain their color uniformity throughout their service life, delivering consistent bright, white light. Additionally all of Global’s fixtures are UL & DLC Listed, which means their performance is validated by rigorous laboratory tests. These certifications also qualify them for the vast selection of utility rebates available throughout the United States.
