Bradford Grammar School

In early 2022 we were approached by Bradford Grammar to see if we could provide a suitable retro-fit LED solution to the six existing brass lanterns within what’s called Price Hall.

Each lantern was internally illuminated by expensive, old and in-efficient halogen bulbs which consumed app 800W and provided poor light quality with similar lumen levels, as we have come to associate with old lighting technology.

Retro-fit LED Solution

Our engineers designed a new retro-fit Aluminium gear tray to contain the new LEDs and drivers to bring these old lanterns back to their once former glory. Power consumption has been reduced from 800W down to 480W with the lumens now at 60,000, up significantly from the previous optimistic 30,000. The colour temperature of the LEDs is now at 4000K which is far more suitable for the luminaires in this environment and provides a much higher quality light for this multi purpose hall.

Reuse and refurbish

This project is a great example of the reuse of existing luminaires. We have upgraded the light source instead of looking at total replacement. This not only preserves the historic fittings, but full replacement would have been far more costly and damaging for the environment.

Energy efficient solution

These luminaires have been restored and installed back in the historic hall. The new LEDs are 50% more energy efficient than the old halogen bulbs with twice the lumen output. They are now covered by our 5-year warranty which covers all parts and our labour, meaning the school can come back to us should they need any repair or maintenance work doing to the lanterns.
