Col-Met to offer E-Light LED lights as standard in spray booths starting in January 2020.
Col-Met E-Lights offer many advantages over fluorescent lamps such as improved durability, longer life span and lower energy usage. E-Light LED lights offer truer color rendering. The vibrancy of LED lights is beneficial in both liquid and powder booths applications. In addition to color vibrancy, the LED lights offer a fuller color spectrum where color-match is an important element of the application
In addition to providing more vibrant, true color, there is significant
the energy savings when using true LED light technology. The output of a fluorescent fixture is approximately 6,000 lumens and will require 134 watts of energy. Using the same wattage a LED fixture offers around 20,000 lumens . The energy efficiency of an LED light is more than double the efficiency of a fluorescent light and can usually offer 40-50% energy savings with the same or better light output. A typical fluorescent light has an expected life of 2,000 to 10,000 hours versus an LED which can range between 50,000 to 100,00 hours, which is 5-10 times longer depending on the environment, condition and application.
Col-Met offers LED panels that lay flat against the booth and are placed for maximum illumination. Our LED’s come in standard 4 & 8k configurations. In addition, we offer a full range of retro-fit packages to convert existing booth. Col-Met uses true LED lights with a driver board and LED’s. There are competitive “LED Solutions” that basically encapsulate LED’s in a fluorescent tube and install then in conventional fluorescent light fixtures that use a ballast. Although they get “LED” lighting, there is no actual reduction in energy usage. We always encourage end-user to seek out “True LED” technology
Col-Met E-Light LED lights provide energy savings and longer life which equates to cost savings. Fluorescent bulbs begin to deteriorate as soon as they are put into use, which results in cooler temperatures than designed as well as a reduction in lighting output. The benefit of a true LED fixture, is the LEDs do not deteriorate from day one.
