Because the customer transitioned from a patchwork of different technologies to single, clean and consistent LED platform, the facility not only performs better, but also looks better and is easier to maintain. A second phase at the manufacturer's Tennessee facility is in planning to replace the fluorescent task lighting in mezzanines with Orion's LED fixtures, which will further reduce that location's fixture counts by another 200-300 fixtures while maintaining or exceeding current light levels."Being energy-efficient helps companies in two ways - by saving costs and contributing to the sustainable stewardship of our natural resources," said John Scribante, Chief Executive Officer of Orion Energy Systems, Inc. "Our customer is a model for the nation in sustainable manufacturing practices and leadership. It is an honor to be part of their value chain with Orion's innovative, energy-saving LED fixtures contributing to their sustainability outcomes and bottom line." The APOLLO® High Bay, the mid-tier offering in Orion's latest LED High Bay suite, sets a new standard for performance in its class with up to 152 lumens per watt and an unprecedented modular platform. The fixture is upgradeable and interchangeable, allowing maintenance crews to meet changing light distribution requirements, such as moving from an open area to aisle lighting. By simply turning off the power to the luminaire, internal teams can use quick attachments to easily switch out aisle illuminators and modular power packs for driver replacement. The versatile slim design of the APOLLO® Suspended Slimline Series lends itself to many low bay commercial and industrial lighting applications including retail, office and task areas. Available in five lumen package from 2,000 to 9,000 lumens and featuring Orion's custom mounting accessory kits that easily adjust in the field to optimal mounting height, the fixtures offer easy installation, several color temperatures, optimized light delivery and attractive design.
