    The right lighting 

    The new Consum supermarket in Bexti was the ideal testing ground for LED. By installing our innovative fixtures and control systems, the company could determine how much energy could be saved by rolling out LED lighting across stores. With this in mind, we began by switching the general store lighting with MASTER LEDtubes GA. This fixture is the ideal replacement for traditional fluorescent lighting, thanks to its stunning light quality and distribution, which creates a pleasant ambience in the store. The upgrade also provided energy savings of 45%.


    For accent lighting, we installed LuxSpace Accent downlights, which can be directed onto merchandise to create eye-catching displays. Walls and the cooler cabinets were fitted with MASTER LEDtubes SA. These fixtures are perfect for lighting coolers thanks to their heat-free operation and rotational fittings, which can be used to make certain products stand out over others.


    The installation of an LED lighting system exceeded all expectations. The new system produces the same lights levels as the old one, but with the added benefits of LED – clean, white light with excellent color rendering that enhances product appearance. Maintenance director Javier Martínez applauded the upgrade: “We now have a supermarket equipped with the best lighting technology on the market, which is producing energy savings of 60% compared with the previous installation. We can now be proud of having the most efficiently lit supermarket in the whole of the Valencian Community."

    The new supermarket lighting solution reduces energy use in the store by 35% -a significant step towards Consum’s environmental goals. This change will also save Consum money on its energy bills – as will the 10 year lifetime of LED, which reduces lighting maintenance requirements to zero.
