Not only is low energy lighting a great way for your business to save money on electricity bills, it helps the environment too. There are many available options for low energy lighting but LED lighting tends to be the most economical and cost effective, particularly in a commercial setting. LED lights are a versatile lighting solution suitable for display lighting, smaller workspaces and larger open-plan office spaces.
Whether you're hoping to replace an outdated lighting system or you're looking for a new commercial LED lighting installation for your premises, our expert team will guide through the design process and advise you as to which system is best suited to your needs.
Replacing or updating your existing lighting can save up to 80-90% in existing lighting costs. At Highland Services we provide a turnkey solution for industrial and warehouse lighting, providing the design and supply right through to the installation and replacement.
From small factories and warehouses to brand new warehouse buildings and larger industrial units, our qualified electricians provide a professional service every step of the way.
Under the Fire Safety Order (The Regulatory Reform 2005, introduced in 2006), commercial premises are required to have correct signage and emergency lighting of emergency routes and exits from the building.
Emergency lighting is essential for the safety of building occupants where a sudden loss of light may put lives at risk. Provision was brought in under the Fire Safety Order, where emergency lighting can really save lives, but emergency lighting is just as valuable when normal lighting has been lost through power failure.

How long do LED bulbs last?
LED bulbs have a huge life expectancy in comparison to other technologies. The LED technology is very stable and so LED bulbs should last for between 25,000 – 50,000 hours. The life expectancy figure quoted on LED products related to the L70 value which is when the light still emits 70% of their original brightness.
What are the benefits of using LED lights?
You can save 80-90% on your lighting electricity bill by swapping to LED bulbs. They do cost more than the existing filament bulbs to purchase but they will last much longer. They also produce very little heat, which is a common problem with flush mounted ceiling spotlights.
How long will emergency lights last?
It depends on ambient temperature and location. However, the batteries that power the lights typically last up to 4/5 years before replacements are required.
What is emergency lighting?
Emergency lights are installed in commercial offices and new-build residential homes. They are a safety mechanism, so that if the main power cuts out people can still see and safely navigate their way through a building. Emergency lighting is often used to lead people towards emergency exits and to safety as quickly as possible.
