There is a lot of change taking place in the world of lighting, and restaurant owners / managers should consider a lighting update.  The end result will be a more inviting space and lower energy bills.

Here are a few areas which you may want to refurbish with the latest energy-saving LED and CFL (compact fluorescent) light bulbs.  Both have come a long way since they entered the market, and it is easy to say selecting the right light bulbs can enhance both dining and work areas.  Let’s consider:

Entrance Lighting: There is no need to explain the need for a well lit, inviting entrance.  TCP LED wall packs provide long lasting, low-mainenance, pleasing illumination. And, they have excellent light output and optimal energy efficiency.

Chandelier Lighting: Add a little style with energy efficiency.  TCP LED deco lamps are fully dimmable and beautifully designed for mood lighting. Choose from standard medium base or small candelabra base.

Spot Lighting: TCP LED PAR floodlights come in narrow flood, wide flood and spot options to highlight the most attractive areas of your restaurant.

Bar Lighting: Help set the mood with TCP BR floodlighting.  Ideal for downlighting or track lighting, the lamps are fully dimmanble and long-lasting – perfect for those hard-to-reach areas.

Kitchen Lighting: Food prep areas and glass lighting don’t mix well. Get optimum light with shatter proof lamps.  TCP InstaBright with ArmorCoat covered CFL bulbs have a protective layer that keeps bulb contents intact in case of breakage – perfect for food-prep areas.  ArmRLux T8 lamps have a similar protective coating.

General Lighting: TCP LED 2 x 2 fixtures are recommended for any place a lot of light is needed.  Brightly light kitchen work areas, walk-in coolers, storage areas and starewells.

Restroom Lighting: Restrooms should be comfortable and well lit. TruStart SpringLamps offer instant brightness, and they work with occupancy sensors.   Another option is the Fresh2 odor ending CFL.  Keep your restrooms smelling fresh.

Is The Bulb Act Good or Bad for America? March 11, 2011

Posted by bowmanlamps in lighting.

Could Congress be doing a cha, cha, cha on light bulb efficiency?   One wonders as Congress debates The BULB Act, legislation that has 27 cosponsors in the Senate and a companion bill in the House. It would repeal the part of a 2007 law that toughened energy-efficiency standards for light bulbs, lambasting the standard as overregulation that is paternalistic and anticonsumer.

Still, The Christian Science Monitor reports “Kyle Pitsor of the National Electric Manufacturers Association (NEMA) testified that The BULB bill would be bad for US light bulb makers, who have already upgraded factories to meet new standards and would face a patchwork of state regulations if the uniform federal 2007 standard (due to take effect nation wide  in 2012) were rolled back, he said.

” ‘NEMA does not support its repeal,’ said Mr. Pitsor. ‘It’s a common misunderstanding, but these standards do not ban incandescent bulbs, nor do they mandate the use of compact fluorescent bulbs…. Consumers will still be able to purchase a general service incandescent bulb,’ but one that will be 28 percent more efficient.’ ”

What is HID Lighting? A Simple Explanation March 3, 2011

Posted by bowmanlamps in HID Lighting, metal halide lighting.
add a comment

HID LampEnergy-Efficient, Long-life High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps / light bulbs, produce light by creating and sustaining an electrical discharge between two electrodes, exciting a mixture of xenon gas and mercury for a bright white light. There are three main types of HID lamps: mercury vapor, metal halide, and sodium. The names reflect the different elements that are used to produce different colors, characteristics, and efficiency.

Mercury Vapor Lamps, the oldest HID technology, gives off a bluish-green light. Advancements have been made to improve the color tint. However, the market is turning more toward better performing metal halide and sodium lamps.

Metal Halide lamps are easily manipulated to give off a a light which allows for normal color appearance, which make them ideal for nighttime sports games, photography, and aquarium lighting.

Sodium Lamps are highly energy efficient, but their orange-ish colored light makes surrounding monochromatic. Modern sodium lamps sacrifice some efficiency for improved, whiter light.

On the up side, HID lamps are ideal for large areas where high intensity light and energy savings are important, including gymnasiums, parking lots, football stadiums, warehouses, public areas, and landscaping.  Lately, HID has been expanding into the small retail and home markets. On average the lamps last for 15,000 to 24,000 plus hours of use.

On the down side, HID lamps require the use of a ballast to generate light and a somewhat inconvenient warm-up time. The lamps also produce ultraviolet radiation, requiring filters to prevent injury, fading of surrounding dyed areas, and degradation of fixtures.
