Active Research & Development lab environments most often require an uninterrupted experimental environment.

The introduction of long lifecycle, high efficiency lumen output lighting devices have an extremely high value to our clients. The integrated networking feature of the Independence 100,000 hours LED 2×4 troffer lighting system, commissioned by the NFC feature of most cell phones, offers the lab environment long term reliability and sleek flexibility via Philips Easy Sense controls, which support networked occupancy controls, daylight harvesting and dimmability; allowing customize lighting levels throughout the room by adapting a single fixture, or a group of fixtures, in the space to create the ambiance best for the learning environment they wish to create. The IRR and NPV on this project makes it a “no brainer” for any firm wanting to invest in energy conservation as a priority!
